He has also composed for National Radio and special events, such as the London 2012 Olympic Games. This intimate and insightful chat is a must for creators who want to place their music in film and television.

8.00pm – 9.15pm: How To Place Your Music in Film and TV

Have you ever wanted to write for a TV show or create music for advertising? The area of ‘sync’ rights has become increasingly important in recent years for songwriters as both a valuable income stream and also for raising their profile, but it’s still a mystery for many artists how music is sourced and selected.

This panel will be discussing everything you need to know to prepare, pitch and place your songs for television in the UK and around the world and the important matter of making sure that you get paid.
