The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard have joined forces for a 2-day event examining the role of music in film and television. The Hollywood Reporter/Billboard Film & TV Music Conference, scheduled for October 10-11 at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood, California, will provide a dynamic networking opportunity for executives who create film and television content to meet and exchange ideas with suppliers of music for future projects. BMI composers will receive a special discounted registration rate of $199 through October 4. This represents a substantial savings from the full rate of $399.
Some event highlights include a Q&A session with Grammy-winning BMI producer and songwriter, T-Bone Burnett, who will discuss the creative and commercial aspects of developing music for film. Other programming highlights include the "Anatomy of a Film" where Robert Kraft from Fox Music will examine the upcoming Fox feature film Drumline, deconstructing the creative process from start to finish. The Primetime TV: The New Radio panel will explore the success stories and identify how music can be used to the greatest benefit for both the artists and the shows. Panelists include Lew Goldstein, The WB; Thomas Golubic, Super Music Vision; Evan M. Greenspan, EMG Inc.; John Kirkpatrick, Elektra Entertainment; and Jennifer Pyken, Daisy Music. The Getting In Sync' panel will examine the fundamentals of music licensing with panelists Ron Broitman, BMG Music Publishing; Ron Mendelsohn, Megatrax Production Music, Inc.; and Tom Rowland, Universal Music Enterprises. This event provides a unique networking opportunity with other engaging panels and a Composer/Songwriter Workshop where composers and songwriters will share their experiences and ideas on creating for film and TV.
