Due to popular demand, Script to Screen is bringing this TALK to Auckland. Join us for the first Script to Screen TALK, kanohi ki te kanohi since lockdown!

Have you ever found yourself confused by music rights, or grappling with decisions about soundtrack or score for your film, TV or online project? Wondering what the difference is between publishing rights and master rights?

Music can enhance visual expression when used well, setting a mood or atmosphere. But licensing agreements need to be negotiated and it can become complicated and expensive if you don’t plan well. This TALK will help you get your dream soundtrack by demystifying the jargon and giving some helpful tips to guide you about music choices, music rights, and how to effectively communicate with your composer.

Music supervisor Karyn Rachtman (Pulp Fiction, Boogie Nights, Moulin Rogue) and screen composer and music editor Samuel Flynn Scott (Phoenix Foundation, Boy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, The Gulf) will chat to Script to Screen Executive Director, Jackie Dennis about what they think filmmakers should consider when thinking about soundtrack and score.

When you book your ticket via Eventbrite, there’ll be an opportunity for you to guide the discussion by telling us what you would like to understand better.

Tickets $5.75 from Eventbrite here to reserve your place or $5 cash on the door.
