AUDIO NETWORK’S INTERNATIONAL MUSIC LIBRARY TO SET THE MOOD FOR PANEL DURING INDEPENDENT FILM WEEK
Marks launch of new $500 Filmmaker Annual License to help new and aspiring filmmakers
For Immediate Release- [New York, NY] September 19, 2011 - Audio Network, along with IFP and
filmmakers everywhere, understand how important music can be in setting the scene.
With clients that include HBO, MTV Networks & the BBC, Audio Network’s diverse library of 45,000 tracks is used across all genres of content, from film and advertising to reality shows and documentaries.
To showcase the art of marrying music and content, Audio Network and Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP), present “Music Matters: Driving Your Narrative through Music” a case-study led panel which will take place on Thursday, September 22 at 4pm at the Elinor Bunin Film Center (144 West 65th Street).
Independent Film Week also marks the launch of Audio Network’s new $500 Filmmaker Annual License, which will help enable new and aspiring filmmakers to score their films with high quality music, pre-cleared with full cinematic rights. The license gives filmmakers unlimited access to the Audio Network library for a full year at an incredibly affordable price.
“Iconic film scenes are often indistinguishable from their sound track. Music can heighten a moment of joy or bring a tear to the eye,” says Andrew Sunnucks, Audio Network co-founder and chair of the IFP panel. “At ‘Music Matters’ we will demonstrate the power of music and show how it can help drive your narrative, drawing on the insight from industry professionals across film, advertising and TV production. With the launch of our New Filmmaker license, great quality music is now available to the next generation of film creators.”
Joining Sunnucks will be Nick Rigg, President of Leopard Films, Sandep Rahi, Advertising Creative Director of Dentsu Networks West, and Otto Bell, from Creative Direction, Development and Production at Ogilvy Entertainment.
