Broadcast Music Inc.’s Vice President, Film/TV Relations, Doreen Ringer-Ross, traveled to Brooklyn, New York, on June 10 to serve as an advisor at the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) Narrative Labs. Ringer-Ross was joined by music supervisor Barry Cole to discuss budgeting for music, song placement in films, music rights and music supervision. BMI composer Peter Nashel also provided a session on original music creation for film and working with film composers.

The Lab is a unique year-long mentorship program supporting first-time feature directors during the critical process of completion, marketing and distribution of their films. It focuses exclusively on low-budget features and provides filmmakers with the technical, creative and strategic tools necessary to launch their films – and their careers. For more information on the IFP, click here
