'Sync Songwriter Workshop' Launched by The SongHunters & Flavorlab -- Monday, 10/27 in NYC

Posted by

The first “Sync Songwriter Workshop”, a new music supervision-based event, has been announced by The SongHunters and FlavorLab.

The Sync Songwriter Workshop will provide attending music artists, publishers, and record label catalogs with the opportunity to each have one of their songs evaluated in a dynamic group session, led by a panel of accomplished music supervisors. This session will feature Liz Morgan (A&E), Dave Hnatiuk (MTV, The SongHunters), and Matt Block (Flavorlab, Producer’s Toolbox), moderated by David Weiss (The SongHunters, SonicScoop).

The event takes place on Monday, October 27th, 2014, from 6:30-9:30 PM, at FlavorLab Audio Post’s facilities in Manhattan’s Flatiron District.

Admission to the Synch Songwriter Workshop is $99.99, and the group size will be limited to just 14 attendees. Artists and publisher/label personnel can apply by submitting one track to This email address is being protected from spambots.

During the Synch Songwriter Workshop, each participant’s recording will be played to the panel and the rest of the group. Each panelist will provide feedback on the song’s potential sync licensing scenarios for film/TV/streaming content, as well as valuable insights on the best way to work with music supervisors to help maximize chance of placements. Tips on production values and arrangement will also be offered.

“With a group workshop, participants absorb a great deal of information in a short amount of time,” says Dave Hnatiuk. “We’ve seen how this format has the ability to inspire a much wider range of career and songwriting guidance, than if an artist were just working with a mentoring music supervisor one-to-one.”

The Sync Songwriters Workshop is presented by The SongHunters, a no-cost music supervision service for media professionals. Co-presenter FlavorLab specializes in a complete set of audio services for feature films, scripted and unscripted television, commercials, trailers and video games.

The Workshop is also presented by MusicSupervisionCentral, the premier news resource for music supervision, licensing and publishing. In addition, it is presented by The Producer’s Toolbox, a handcrafted catalog of exclusive music and imaging elements designed to provide editors and producers with high quality tracks that drive picture and emphasize story.

Music Supervision 2: The Complete Guide to Selecting Music for Movies, TV, Games, & New Media

SCH10174 Music Supervision

Available at Amazon.com

The newly revised, definitive book on music supervision, which guides you through real-world scenarios and legal landmines, explores sound design, and profiles key players.

Music supervision, or matching music to all the different mediums from films to ring tones, is one of the fastest-growing careers in the music industry, but finding the winning song for a national ad campaign or compiling a platinum movie soundtrack takes more than just good taste. Music supervision today requires serious multi-tasking and the ability to navigate licensing, relationships, and cultural trends with ease. This book guides you through real scenarios and legal landmines you might encounter; it explores sound design and profiles key players with insightful interviews, while providing project form templates that will save time for seasoned music supervisors.

This is the only guide to the career of music supervision and is ideal for the music student, musician, industry executive and of course, for those who want to break into the field of music supervision. Authors David Weiss, Ramsay Adams and David Hnatiuk are all renowned figures in the procurement and supervision of music and they apply their combined knowledge and experience to give the best possible advice and tell you how to get the job!
