Newsletter #3: ANNOUNCING: MEDIA MUSICIANS DATABASE by Peter Hackman

Newsletter #2: WHO IS SELLING THE GREAT MUSICIANS OF L.A.? by Austin Wintory and Richard Kraft

Since 2007 the number of films released that were recorded AFM has plummeted almost in half. 

Soak that in. 

There has been an almost 50% drop in the number of AFM films in the last six years.

While there is a wide range of opinions on why things have crashed, there is probably no dispute that those are some pretty horrible figures.

So what to do about it??

Newsletter #1: WHY CARE?

For the last few years I have possessed a haunting suspicion that there have been less and less films recording their scores AFM in Los Angeles and more and more of them are being done as dark dates or in London or Prague or in non-Union locations like Seattle. About a year ago I attended a meeting filled with musicians both young and old passionately expressing concerns that their very livelihoods were being outsourced. Hearing and meeting that many concerned artists helped fuel my hunch.

HOW CAN 90 LOS ANGELES MUSICIANS GET THIS JOB?

Here is a very real situation.  It is also one that is quite representational of a number of job opportunities that occur on a regular basis:

One of my clients will be composing the music for an upcoming film.  The requirement of doing this film is it must be done as an “all-in” package, meaning the composer is responsible for covering all the expenses of recording the score within a set amount of money.
