Cool! Good stuff!
Yeah, I’m only 8 months into this industry so picking up bits and pieces of info along the way… Working my butt off though, as I’ve heard that’s what needs to happen to make things happen..
Not with [removed by moderator]. I don’t even see a way in there, will have to look 🙂
Thanks for the kind words! I appreciate the feedback.
Darrel: Thanks for the info! I’m not looking at my statement, but rather my ‘Works Catalog’ online in the BMI system. The cue title is listed and it was registered last month, so I won’t see it on a statement for awhile, but, does the fact that they registered it mean it was used? Otherwise, why would they spend the resources doing it?
Either way, hopefully I’ll be able to snag a couple shekels 🙂 At very least, I’ve got enough circumstantial evidence to include it in my credits list 😉
Man, this is good stuff. Great stuff to think on and try to figure out how to apply to me.
Personally, I see validity in all that’s being discussed. How and which ideas to implement however, for me, is probably going to be a “Try, Adjust, retry” situation. All the planning and thought in the world won’t help if I don’t actually take some sort of action 🙂
Thanks again everyone for such a (for lack of better word, I suck at words, that why I write instrumentals 🙂 ) stimulating conversation!
@Art: Hmm. Very interesting thoughts re: Google. I can see keeping your ‘brand’ consistent very important. Are you speaking more towards RF sites than other ‘more traditional’ libraries?
It seems to me that some of the libraries I’m involved with don’t really have too much of a ‘public’ face. Maybe that’s a problem 🙂
Thanks for all of the feedback. You’ve spelled out (very nicely) what I’ve been trying to piece together in my mind for quite some time now.
Interesting thought of using a pseudonym for branding purposes, never got that far in my thinking. Will have to chew on that a bit as well.
Again, thanks for all your responses. I’m slowly getting more and more miles under my feet 🙂
Kinda where I was leaning. Seems like I’m “the manager” 🙂
also, thx for the kind words! 🙂
Art – I’m leaning towards a database solution
woodsdenis – does your spreadsheet get ‘cramped’? Mine’s a disaster!! 🙂
To clarify, I’m talking composers, not library operators..sorry, don’t know how to edit a post..November 14, 2012 at 11:35 am in reply to: PRO, re-titling and publishing – confused foreign newbie. #7545
Also a newbie with a ‘re-titling’ question:
So, I’ve got a couple ‘exclusive’ piles and then the ‘non-exclusive/RF’ pile. As I write, I’ll submit to the exclusives, and filter down rejections to nons and RF.
I’m unclear as how to register/rename the tracks for non/RF distribution as I’ll be submitting the same track to multiple libraries.
Do I register with my PRO, then add alternate titles (in the PRO) as I submit to the various nons/RFs?
Am I even allowed to do this? 🙂
Thanks for any tips!
btw, great site and great community here..
I’m very new to this biz, am I correct to think that assuming I sign a ‘standard’ exclusive deal with a library, I can sign other non ex or ex with other companies, submitting DIFFERENT music
