Personally, I’ve always made it a practice to register every track with BMI as the final step of finishing a cue. With BMI anyway, there is a box that asks if there is a publisher and it states that can be changed so I check no and when publishers enter the picture they register the tracks as publisher. Not saying that is how it should be done but I’ve never had any issues doing it that way.
Ahh, ok, that makes perfect sense. I was perplexed by your posts as you can tell but that explains it. Thanks for clarifying.
I agree with Art. No matter what you do, somebody determines it as being whatever their ears and taste tells them. You can’t control subjectivity. I’m also not sure what you meant by having your “properly assessed”. You write it, you assess it based on your own standards and the client assesses it further based on theirs. But again, that’s not new and that’s not really a changing trend in Micro/Major Sales.
The trend I see is libraries getting pickier.
My next to the best Qtr. I figure with so much production slowed to a trickle these past months I’m seeing a lot more reruns.
I have to thank you for that too Mark. That was one interesting post and I don’t even do trailers (unless I count the placements I get from reality shows or sports as you mentioned which to me would be trailer “light”) but you sure got me thinking.Very informative and helpful.
Nice posts here of actual full timers sharing. Very interesting and inspirational stuff. This is what it’s all about. Thanks guys!
Congrats!! I know exactly how you feel. Super rewarding. my first royalty was actually a $125 check for a sync license from Jingle Punks. I have it in a frame on the wall in my little studio from 2011. You can’t beat that feeling.
That must be one hell of a TV show but If BMI realizes it’s an overpay I believe they will definitely adjust from your future royalties to get it back. I’ve had a royalty adjust once but fortunately it was few bucks in my favor…and I mean a few.
You bet. Good luck!
