To get your music in front of a supervisor, submit your music to them, either by email or via the company’s site. Be mindful of their methods, as if they prefer CDs, don’t send an .mp3.
Lastly, you want to make sure you are getting paid if a supervisor likes your work. Well, there are a few things to keep in mind, such as licenses and royalties. There are two types of licenses, synchronization and master. Synchronization licenses give permission to use the song, by the song’s publisher. Master licenses gives permission to use that specific recording of the song and is granted by the recording owner. Depending on how much of the will be used, how important it is, and how the song will be used your licensing fee may be a lot or a little.
Because music supervisors are exposed to hundreds of songs a day, it may seem hopeless that your project will be chosen. Never fret as there are always plenty of music placement opportunities, not just on TV or in movies, but also in other forms of media such as video games.
