Getting Syncs: The Real Truth from the Insiders

Friday, March 18
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 18D
531 E 4th St

A lot of music supervisors on panels will tell you that they listen to everything you send. That's obviously not true, so rather than sugar coat things we're going to get right down to what they do listen to and why.

This panel will give an insider's perspective on what approach is most effective, things to consider about your music before submitting, and stories about how real independent artists broke through and landed big syncs.

The discussion will be covering sync in all its forms from experts on both the pitch and music supervision side. If you want real insider information, stories, and advice then this is for you.
