Score Draw Music presents Film and Television Sync - Rules of Engagement in 2020

In a media landscape completely transformed by the global pandemic, film and television are adapting to the new normal and finding creative ways to comission, create and produce new content. 'Sync' (placing music in visual media) is still a vital revenue stream and exposure tool for new music - and in this session two leading UK music supervisors will talk about the work they're doing during lockdown, the unique challenges facing the industry, and what emerging artists, songwriters, library music writers and composers can do to stay ahead of the curve both now and in the new normal that will follow.

Speakers: Mark Gordon, Dina Coughlan, Zoë Ellen Bryant

Chair: Mark Gordon
