Mark Allen (Recent Futures/ThinkSyncMusic): Mentor


Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Mentor Sessions offer 15 minutes of one-on-one interaction with industry leaders and professionals from a variety of fields spanning interactive, film, and music.

Meeting with this mentor is highly recommended if you're interested in songwriting, synch, and licensing.

Originally from London, Mark cut his teeth working at ThinkSync Music, a supervision and sync licensing company, for over half a decade. Now based in NYC, he sits on both sides of the fence. Working both as a music supervisor for film trailers and advertising, and as a sync agent representing and pitching some select commercial catalogs and artists. From working across the globe, he has a wide understanding of unique and hard to crack markets such as the UK and Europe. Recent synchs and projects include Nike, Perrier, Pepsi Moet and more.

You can see Mark’s full bio on his speaker page.
