Testimonials

  • "I am one of the top mixers and producers in the country and have had years of experience in the music and associated businesses.

    My company licenses songs and seeks songs to be licensed for films, TV and Commercials and thus I have worked with many people in the licensing industry and discovered there is a wide range and degree of service and quality when you seek songs.

    In my experience, I have found that The SongHunters exhibit a real knack at delivering the right songs and offering a wide range of music in all areas to choose from.

    Dave Hnatiuk, David Weiss and Doug Diamond are hands on and believe the quality service does not stop at sending a music file to choose from. They believe in follow-up and follow-through and are there for you as long as and to the extent that you need them.

    They not only provide great songs for your needs, but also provide you with some great solicitations for your music on their own projects. Do I recommend them? You bet I do! And that recommendation is earned, not just given!"

Music Supervision 2: The Complete Guide to Selecting Music for Movies, TV, Games, & New Media

SCH10174 Music Supervision

Available at Amazon.com

The newly revised, definitive book on music supervision, which guides you through real-world scenarios and legal landmines, explores sound design, and profiles key players.

Music supervision, or matching music to all the different mediums from films to ring tones, is one of the fastest-growing careers in the music industry, but finding the winning song for a national ad campaign or compiling a platinum movie soundtrack takes more than just good taste. Music supervision today requires serious multi-tasking and the ability to navigate licensing, relationships, and cultural trends with ease. This book guides you through real scenarios and legal landmines you might encounter; it explores sound design and profiles key players with insightful interviews, while providing project form templates that will save time for seasoned music supervisors.

This is the only guide to the career of music supervision and is ideal for the music student, musician, industry executive and of course, for those who want to break into the field of music supervision. Authors David Weiss, Ramsay Adams and David Hnatiuk are all renowned figures in the procurement and supervision of music and they apply their combined knowledge and experience to give the best possible advice and tell you how to get the job!
