Music & Media Friday
Music & Media Friday is a new initiative as part of SPOT+. In the course of two seminars we are going to discuss music in relation to commercials, brands, film, and television. Below there is information about the two seminars “Let’s Talk Music & Brands” and “Let’s Talk Synch”.
Let’s Talk Music & Brands
In collaboration with the content and partnership bureau Volume, we are pleased to invite you to a morning dedicated to music and brands. With Arnon Woolfson, Head of Entertainment at Synergy in London (part of The Engine Group) and senior advisor in Polar Music Prize as key note speaker as well as representatives from Danish and international bureaus and brands there will be ample opportunity to gain insight in trends and cases and to learn more about how you navigate in a landscape of very diverse interests and how to create fantastic strategies for brands with music at the centre.
The complete program will follow soon.
Let’s Talk Synch
After our “Let’s Talk Music & Brands” we are going to let Tess Taylor, NARIP (National Association of Record Industry Professionals), take over as moderator at our big synch seminar “Let’s Talk Synch”. Here a large number of music supervisors and synch agents are going to discuss the latest trends when it comes to coupling music to TV, film and commercials and throw some cases and best practices in the mix.
The complete program as well as the participants will be announced soon.
