MUSICONTARIO COMMUNITIES CONNECT: HAMILTON FILM FESTIVAL
FOCUS ON SYNC & LICENSING
November 11, 2016, 1:00-3:30PM @ Sheraton Hamilton Hotel
(116 King St W, Hamilton, ON L8P 4V3)
Followed by Hamilton Film Premiere of Play Your Gender by Stephanie Clattenburg
MusicOntario Communities Connect is all about bridging the gaps between Ontario’s vibrant music markets! During our Community Development Research Project (CDRP), we asked musicians, artists and industry professionals across the province what types of support and education they hoped to have access to regionally (you can read the full results at www.music-ontario.ca).
With that in mind, we’ve tailored this session to cover the topics Hamilton survey respondents want to learn about. From publishing, music supervision/sync, to licensing and rights collectives, working smart in today’s music industry goes beyond optimizing the front end of your business (music sales, gigs, merch). It requires savvy behind the scenes as well: protecting your publishing rights, understanding the value of your intellectual property, and licensing/placing your music in film, television, ads and games can help you generate revenue in the background. Learn from various industry pros how the cogs in the wheel flow together and how to approach the key players to put your music to work!
