Members and Non-Members welcome!

$20 Purchase your spot below

Have you ever wondered what actually makes a song ‘work’ for a scene? How does a Music Supervisor know what songs to pitch for placement?

Join our workshop hosted by Shantell Ogden, owner of SOSync and Music Supervisor as she shares actual scenes and the songs that were pitched and placed to learn how decisions get made for music. We will also cover a few sync basics and guidelines for pitching. In addition, 5 workshop attendees will be selected at random to pitch a song for an upcoming film project Shantell is working on.

SOSync is a music licensing company based in Nashville. Since 2011, we have worked exclusively with independent songwriters/artists to deliver pre-cleared, ready-to-place songs as a music provider and Music Supervisor. Click here to visit our site (make link to https://so-sync.com).
