NARIP Music Supervisor Sessions:
Intimate Pitch Meetings With Music Supervisors
from Film & TV Trailer Houses
with Ignition Creative’s Natalie Baartz
on Friday May 9, 2014
A top-rated music supervisor from one of the leading trailer houses is our special guest at NARIP’s next Music Supervisor Session in London. Natalie Baartz, Music Director for Ignition Creative. Baartz commissions, licenses and places music for global movie trailer campaigns for the world’s biggest blockbusters and independent films. Limited enrollment of 16 people per session guarantees face-time, registrants get brief of supervisor’s CURRENT music needs, a chance to pitch plus immediate feedback. In NARIP’s intimate session, you get to meet and pitch her for current opportunities on the spot, receiving instant feedback as to whether a song is appropriate or not, and WHY. This valuable feedback makes better pitches – and ultimately, placements – possible. In some cases, participants even have time to re-work their music to better fit a supervisors’ needs.
