I posted last quarter that I had a cue used in Discovery’s prime time show, Dual Survival. My BMI statement showed I got 200% of the royalties – publisher and writer. Some of you felt that perhaps some intern made a mistake and I would be docked the extra in the future.
Well, this past statement, I had several more placements at the same 200% rate. So, I asked several libraries I’m with if they had placed the track and they all said no. And I’ve never had a sale of it on a RF site either.
So how in the world did it get in the show??? Not complaining… payout was the highest on that statement!March 21, 2017 at 7:51 am #27012
Dual is typically Discovery, Coney Island, and maybe Mibe I believe. That show uses a main writer…those other libraries fill in. Hope this helps.March 21, 2017 at 9:37 am #27017
Hmm, I know it’s not MIBE, they rejected that track! Might be Coney Island but why haven’t they caught the mistake yet?March 21, 2017 at 10:34 am #27018
No way to know for sure, but it sounds like an editor filled something in wrong. I would email CIM and give them the name of the cue and take it from there.April 18, 2017 at 8:16 am #27236
Solved the mystery. It took about 10 months for someone to finally file the cue sheet correctly. GoldenEar was right, the placement was done by Coney Island Music. So I assume my next BMI statement will be about $146 less because of this. 🙁
