Media platforms are proliferating before our very eyes. Hot on the heels of its IPO, Snapchat is serious about expanding what they do, as they commit to adding original content via partnerships with several networks.

And you know you're hot when VICE Media is easier to get on board with you. That's exactly what's happened, with VICE signing on to create original shows on Snapchat, starting with a reality show about dating called "Hungry Hearts with Action Bronson."

We're going to go out on a limb and assume that this VICELAND-produced series will have music, which means more opportunities for music supervisors and their suppliers. Keep watching the Snapchat space, and let's hope that the new deals continue – it's good for synch.

For more details on this development, read Sarah Perez' full article in TechCrunch.

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!
