    PP 004 - Who Decides What Music Gets Placed?

    PP 004 - Who Decides What Music Gets Placed?

    There are so many steps and industry professionals that will bend their ears around a track that has the potential to be used in their Trailer, TV or Advertising campaign. What makes this industry so hard is that you don’t just have to impress one person. You have to impress a series of people from multiple companies before you get that wonderful email or phone call telling you that you just landed a sync.

    The good news is that there’s so much media being created now that the chances of everybody living in a happy wonderland with lots of syncs is not out of the question. If you can consistently write great music and be reliable there is a place for any composer who wants to enter this industry. This episode focuses on the different stages of getting your music placed. Enjoy!

    PP 002 - Hellbound - Brutal End Walkthrough

    PP 002 - Hellbound - Brutal End Walkthrough

    This week we’re doing something a little bit different. I’m going to run through a track that has had a number of placements but most recently was placed in entirety on the new Netflix series trailer, Hellbound.

    This track is a great example of using many of the same methods a lot of composers use but because of the way it’s structured means that it becomes incredibly useful for editors in trailer structure.

    PP 001 - Maximising Your Creativity

    PP 001 - Maximising Your Creativity

    Maximising your Creativity. Easier said than done but once you become mindful of what keeps your head in that place where you can be more efficient with your work then you truly are on your way to getting the most out of your writing sessions and down time. 
    This isn’t just about working every hour of every day and night and bashing out tunes. This is about knowing when to stop, when to eat, when to drink, when to play Playstation and when to go out for a walk. Whatever it is that opens your mind up to a more positive environment is exactly the place you need to put yourself in more to get the most out of your writing sessions. 

    I hope you enjoy this very first episode of the ‘Protege Podcast’!
