Technicolor PostWorks NY
Technicolor PostWorks Continues to Lead New York in Post
Full-service post-production facility Technicolor PostWorks had another strong year in 2016 as it continues to benefit from expanding production activity and New York State tax incentives. The facility saw a rise in both theatrical and television projects with the former including Manchester by the Sea, which recently picked up five Golden Globe nominations and is on many Oscar short-lists, as well as the critically-acclaimed comedies Maggie’s Plan and Café Society. As always, the facility helped prepare many features and documentaries for festival screenings, including 12 films that premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
On the television side, the company provided picture and sound services for The Get Down, Baz Luhrman’s colorful take on the birth of hip hop for Netflix. Other key projects included the documentary series Soundbreaking: Stories from the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music and Jackie Robinson for PBS and Years of Living Dangerously for Nat Geo. The facility performed finishing services for episodic series such as The Americans (FX Networks), Master of None (Netflix) and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix), and dailies services for The Affair (Showtime) and Mozart In the Jungle (Amazon).
"Not only are more movies and TV shows being produced in New York, the quality of those projects is getting better all the time,” says COO Rob DeMartin. “That’s great for our team as it gives them opportunities to work on compelling projects with talented filmmakers and take on interesting creative challenges. We’re excited about what’s coming up next year.” DeMartin cited Colorist Sam Daley’s recent HPA Award nomination for his work on the HBO series Show Me a Hero as evidence of the trend.
The past year has also been one of growth in terms of physical resources and business initiatives. This past summer, Technicolor PostWorks opened a 50,000-plus square foot editing facility at 1411 Broadway. With more than 120 new editing suites, it serves film and television productions on both long- and short-term bases. It also features a high-speed data connection with the company’s finishing facility, providing productions with a seamless path through post.
In July, the PostWorks division of the company formed a digital film distribution service, PostWorks Digital Cinema. Led by industry veteran Greg Fornero, the unit works with producers, distributors, film festivals and independent DI facilities, and provides DCP duplication, drive set rentals and sales, KDM management and broadband content delivery services.
While grateful for the strength of the local production market, DeMartin insists that his company takes nothing for granted and is continually seeking to develop new relationships and uncover new business opportunities. “Post-production has always been a dynamic industry with constantly evolving technologies, workflows and business models,” he says. “We work every day to keep pace with developments that may affect our business and the changing needs of our clients. It’s challenging, but we have a clear vision and are committed to maintaining our position as the finest post-production facility in New York.”

Soundtrack NY has had an incredible 2016!
With new renovations, our insanely talented Mixers working on numerous television shows and
feature films, and welcoming outstanding 'outside' Sound Mixers, we have definitely kept busy!
Tom Fleischman started his year out mixing HBO's TV show Vinyl produced by Martin Scorsese.
After Vinyl wrapped, he moved on to mix Terry George's newest movie The Promise starring
Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac. Tom finished up the year with Martin Scorsese, on his
newest masterpiece, Silence. Everything was mixed at our F/T location in Chelsea on Stage B.
Dominick Tavella also had a fantastic year, starting with Mira Nair's Feature Film,
Queen of Katwe. He then moved directly into Ken Burn’s newest documentary, The Vietnam War,
a 10-part TV series expected to air on PBS in 2017, all of which was mixed at our
936 Broadway location on Stage K.
Our studio G was newly renovated at the beginning of 2016. We transformed it from a
music mix room into a full 7.1 edit/mix suite. It is also capable of recording VO and ADR.
Pink Floyd's Roger Waters came to collaborate with Jacob Ribicoff on a sound design
mix for his recent concert series.
Bob Chefalas and Dan Brennan continued collaborating on their two man mix for ABC's hit
show Quantico, Season 2. They powered through nine episodes and will be hard at work
again in the beginning of 2017. Bob is now currently working on a Grateful Dead
documentary and Dan Brennan is finishing up an independent film, Bushwick, which was
recently added to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival slate.
We welcomed the brilliant mixers Scott Millan and Gregg Rudloff from Los Angeles
to mix The Girl on The Train on Stage K at our 936 Broadway location. It was very
exciting to bring together Hollywood and The Big Apple!
Soundtrack is looking forward to the New Year and adventures that lie ahead.
We wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season!

One Year On from Major Expansion, Sixteen19 Continues to Lead the Way
State-of-the-art boutique post company celebrates a year in Chelsea with launch of second 4K theater.
Sixteen19, a growing powerhouse on the post-production scene, marked one year at its new headquarters in Chelsea with the launch of its second 4K DI finishing theater. The theater will enable the company’s premier group of artists and technicians – led by co-founders Pete Conlin and Jonathan Hoffman, and Senior colorist Andrew Francis – to build on a breakthrough year marked by physical expansion, high-profile projects and in-roads into new markets.
The new 4K theater serves as a centerpiece of Sixteen19’s new flagship facility, opened in late 2015. The 20,000 square foot space features high-end technology consistent with the unmatched boutique service Sixteen19 has delivered for productions since the company’s founding in 2010. In addition to the two DI theaters, the Chelsea location also boasts 40 edit suites, three color suites, and two visual effects suites. High-speed bandwidth capacity reflects the increasingly global nature of post-production, allowing seamless connectivity with Sixteen19’s Los Angeles, Atlanta, and London outposts, as well as shooting locations around the world. Finally, clients’ work is covered by advanced security systems in line with major studio compliance standards.
“We built a facility that is the most elegant in NYC—by far—and specifically designed it to provide a creative environment for our clientele to thrive,” says Hoffman.
In the past twelve months, more and more filmmakers have begun to take notice. Recently, director Peter Berg and his team chose Sixteen19 for their post work on the Summit Entertainment blockbuster Deepwater Horizon. For The Promise, directed by Terry George (Hotel Rwanda) and starring Christian Bale, Sixteen19 delivered a complete post package comprising mobile dailies across Spain, Portugal and Malta, Avid suites, VFX, final color grading, and editorial finishing in the Chelsea facility.
“I was looking for the perfect New York location to set up my projects. Sixteen19’s new facility absolutely fit the bill,” said Berg. “I’m cutting two projects at Sixteen19’s new facility and I couldn’t be happier here. Jonathan and Pete have put together a very comfortable, state-of-the-art environment for creatives.”
“Sixteen19 was the top choice,” said George. “This is a place which truly fosters a community of creatives. It was a pleasure to work at Sixteen19. They have the most helpful, and cheerful staff and are very conveniently located in the heart of Chelsea.”
While Sixteen19 operates on the cutting edge of post technology, this collaborative approach to service makes it something of a throwback. “When filmmakers come here, they know we participate as an extension of their production both technically and creatively,” Hoffman says.
As momentous of a year as it’s been, 2016 isn’t a victory lap for the company – it’s the first step in a larger process. Conlin and Hoffman plan to add more editing and finishing suites, as well as ADR recording and sound finishing. The new resources will allow Sixteen19 to keep pace with its heavy slate of motion picture and television projects, and growing demand for advertising and commercial finishing.

The Molecule Celebrates Landmark Year in NY
2016 was a big year for The Molecule, a bi-coastal creative studio specializing in VFX, Motion Graphics, and Virtual Reality production. The studio welcomed many new and returning TV shows and Films, contributed to several groundbreaking VR projects, and experienced another big year of growth – including a move to a new office in New York City to accommodate the crew needed to tackle the influx of work.
Among the new shows that came through The Molecule’s doors were Quantico (ABC), Shades of Blue (NBC), Falling Water (USA), The Breaks (VH1), Gypsy (Netflix), Z: The Beginning of Everything (Amazon) and Feed The Beast (AMC).
The Molecule also contributed VFX to many returning TV series, including The Americans (FX), The Affair (Showtime), Ballers (HBO), Elementary (CBS), Master of None (Netflix), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix), and Bloodline (Netflix).
Film-wise, The Molecule recently wrapped up work on two films headed to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival: Novitiate and The Yellow Birds. This follows an eventful summer which saw the release of Money Monster, a film to which The Molecule contributed the opening title sequence and visual effects.
2016 was also full of exciting VR experiences for The Molecule. One of the highlights was an interactive experience for Conan at San Diego Comic Con, and they provided the Visual Effects for Doug Liman’s Invisible, one of the first ever scripted drama series for VR.
Perhaps the biggest news of 2016 was the expansion of the NYC office. At the beginning of 2015, The Molecule employed 19 full-time staff; currently, they employ 85 employees, including 53 full-time staff. In order to accommodate all of this new talent, The Molecule moved their NY facility from a 4,000 sq. ft space in SoHo to an 11,000 sq. ft. space in Chelsea.
“New York has always been a great place for post-production,” says Molecule partner and co-founder Andrew Bly, “but thanks to the current tax incentives, it’s an extremely exciting time. We look forward to continued growth in the years to come!”
The Molecule is excited to see what 2017 has in store, and they wish their fellow members of the PNYA a year of health and success!

Making a Film in NY Should Include Scoring in NY
Local 802, American Federation of Musicians, is the largest local union of professional musicians in the world, comprising musicians of all styles and backgrounds, from the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the pit orchestras of Broadway, to the thousands of musicians playing in recording studios, jazz clubs and venues across the city.
Musicians come to New York from across the country and the globe for the opportunity to perform with the most talented artists and be part of the most creative community in the world. As a result, New York City is home not only to the most talented musicians in the world, but to the most innovative, diverse, flexible and creative.
As part of our work to strengthen New York's entire cultural fabric and artistic environment, we work every day to encourage film and television producers to record and score here, with New York's world-class musicians.
Thanks to New York's enormous wealth of talent, to organizations like Post-New York Alliance, and to important tax credits and support provided by the State and City, the film and television industries in New York City are booming. As a result, hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers are directly and indirectly benefiting, but sadly New York City's musicians are not. The region has experienced large reductions in the number of titles filed under union contract, leading to a nearly 40% reduction in the size of the employed music workforce in the industry while the overall industry workforce has expanded. Additionally, the wages paid per musician on average is declining simultaneously, indicating that even those musicians that enjoy employment in this vitally important industry are actually underemployed at best.
To address this decline, we have lowered the "low budget" qualification threshold so that more films can employ musicians at wage levels appropriate to their size. We are working with the City to find ways to better promote and encourage producers who score in New York. And we are constantly working to educate the industry about "back-end" payments - a source of income that nearly everyone, from stagehands to actors and writers, all benefit from as well.
We have seen positive trends of late. New York City has bolstered its stock of scoring space with the addition of the DiMenna Center, which is now fully operational and under constant use. But we need the support of all those employed in film and television if we are to ensure that productions in New York employ and bolster the entire industry, including musicians. Introduce directors and producers of projects big and small to the idea of scoring under union contract, and help us take a stand for the fair wages, benefits and opportunities that so many already enjoy.
Let's ensure that making a film in New York, includes scoring a film in New York. After all, everyone wants to see film, television, performance, arts and our culture continue to grow and be healthy, but this is only possible if every part of our industry has the opportunity to thrive.

Light Iron Hosts NY Debut of DXL Camera System
Light Iron, a Panavision company, recently hosted the New York debut of the Millennium DXL camera system. Members of the production and post community gathered to view footage from the DXL in Light Iron’s 4K theater and get hands-on with the camera. Representatives of Panavision and Light Iron were on hand to showcase DXL’s innovative image capabilities, which include:
- 35 megapixel, 8K, 16-bit, large format sensor
- 21 megapixels of true 4K anamorphic images
- Optimized 8K RAW workflow, with simultaneous 4K/2K proxies (ProRes or DNx)
- HDR, wide color viewfinder
- Panavision large format lens mount with /i technology conveys lens metadata
- Embedded accelerometer and gyroscope for VFX matching
The Millennium DXL was born of the acquisition of Light Iron by Panavision two years ago. Engineers and artists from both companies, as well as from RED Digital Cinema, contributed their strengths to create a camera system that significantly expands creative possibilities while streamlining post workflow.
One of the unique features of DXL is Light Iron Color, a revolutionary image mapping process that delivers a rich cinematic look right out of the camera. Developed by Light Iron’s colorists, this optional built-in color profile provides a look for on-set and dailies that seems as if the media has already spent some time in a DI session. Cinematographers have responded enthusiastically to Light Iron Color’s film-like density, neutral shadows, and natural skin tones.
At the event, attendees saw test footage shot by a prominent New York DIT, Charlie Anderson. Anderson’s take on the DXL can be viewed at: http://vimeo.com/lightiron

GPL Brings Engineering Consulting To Top New York Creatives
GPL Technologies provided engineering services to many of New York’s top creative companies and artists last year.
One of rock’s reigning legends engaged the company to design and build a VFX and editorial infrastructure in a residential loft, and to provide ongoing engineering support as the studio’s Managed Service Provider. Looking ahead to 2017, the facility has been upgraded to handle the demands of preparing for the artist’s North American tour.
“It was a challenge to take a residential space and design and build a workflow that could handle such a monumental production. But the results were stunning, and we can’t wait to see what is created for 2017’s tour,” enthuses GPL’s Chris Peterson.
NYC-based VFX house The Molecule hired GPL to design and build the technological infrastructure in its new Manhattan headquarters as well. "We're now operating at a higher tier of capacity than ever before. GPL's consulting and expertise have made this expansion possible in a way that few other companies could," says Molecule CEO Chris Healer.

GPL also added Senior Systems Engineer Levi Szileszky to its roster of technical talent. With experience as a System Engineer at FuseFX and as CTO at Anatomical Travelogue, he offers a wealth of knowledge to the New York post production community.
Finally, GPL’s rental division VFXnow has served dozens of companies in the area by providing rentals of high-end VFX and post equipment including render servers, storage, workstations, monitors, graphics cards and more. Orders are fulfilled within 24 hours, or same-day with rush service.
“VFXnow doesn’t just provide fast rentals. We consult with clients on preparing the best solution for their project, and we provide ongoing engineering support for the duration of the work,” adds Chris.
2017 promises to be a banner year for the company. Now occupying a new facility, plans are to continue hiring engineers and combining their technical knowledge with practical business strategy in order to maximize growth for their clients, and for New York’s industry as a whole.

Trophy and City of Ghosts
Afterparty had a successful 2016. One highlight was our work as visual effects house on
Captain Fantastic, which won the Un Certain Regard award for best Director at Cannes.
Another was the continued festival success of founder David Gaddie’s science fiction
short film, Beautiful Dreamer. We also produced and provided all post production for
the election-year mockumentary Undecided:The Movie. In addition, we continued to
create innovative work in advertising, particularly in the VR / 360° space where
we created campaigns for Holiday Inn Express and Lipton’s Tea. You can check out a
fun behind the scenes breakdown of the latter here. (https://vimeo.com/194432986)

VFX: Before, During and After for Festival Films and VR
It’s been another busy year at Mechanism Digital, working on VFX for award-winning films. Some of the films we enhanced were Life, Animated, AWOL, Lost City of Z and Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing, which garnered awards at Sundance, NY Film Festival and Woodstock, among others. We are happy to see many of these projects leveraging the Empire State Post Production and VFX Tax Credits.
During the past 20 years of VFX and post-production, we have noticed a curious pattern concerning films being submitted to film festivals: there are three distinct waves during which we get to collaborate and add a bit of movie magic -- before, during and after the festivals.
Before submission, producers want the story locked so it can be submitted . . . or simply step-up their game a bit to increase the chances of acceptance. For instance Pimp, directed by Christine Crokos, needed muzzle flashes and enhanced gunshot wounds/blood to increase the impact of the final shootout scene. This additional improvement in effects just might make the difference between going to Park City or not.
During the waiting period, after a film has been officially accepted for a festival but before it’s shown, there is typically a flurry of effort to polish the film for the “win.” Knowing a film will be in a reputable festival such as Sundance can encourage producers to put a bit more skin in the game. They might ask us to add VFX which they may have been on the fence about. Often these are effects the director had been asking for, but the financiers hadn’t yet found the necessary money or time to get them completed.
After the festival is over, we’ll get opportunities to work on films which were purchased and now have additional monies available to digitally re-work some shots. Also in situations where, a studio like HBO buys a film and has higher quality standards which need to be met before the sale is final.
In 2016, we began working on films submitted to festivals as 360/Virtual Reality experiences. Last year, Tribeca introduced Virtual Arcade for VR films including the Killer Deal, a horror-comedy in which our studio added digital blood spurting from a monster being chopped by Ian Ziering, a machete salesman in a surprisingly cheap hotel room. Next, Sundance 2017 is introducing its New Frontier category exhibiting innovative media projects, including several VR films/experiences for which we are in VFX discussions. This new format of storytelling is bringing the same three waves of VFX as standard features bring, although the total running times are typically much shorter. Don’t be fooled by the shorter film TRTs -- the 360 format can often require more time to execute VFX if not planned correctly. Definitely discuss post and VFX needs as soon as possible with a post or VFX supervisor to determine whether you’ll need VFX before, during or after the festival.

Fall On Your Sword
Fall On Your Sword has had a jam-packed and fulfilling year. Multi-media composer and founder, Will Bates, scored a wide range of adored and revered pieces in both cinema and television. Alex Gibney’s documentary Zero Days (Showtime) is garnering Oscar buzz and was featured on Vulture’s list of The 10 Best Movies of 2016. HBO’s Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (Cannes Classics premiere, NYFF, HBO) was extremely well received with festival audiences and will be available for all on HBO come 2017. Imperium (Lionsgate), the crime-drama and thriller starring Daniel Radcliffe and Toni Collette, opened in theatres over the summer and Bates’s score was given quite the generous shout out… “I can’t not mention the score...The music truly fits the mood, the atmosphere. Sometimes music can fade into the background. Others it can ruin the whole experience. Then there are films lifted up at an extra end by their sound. Bates provides one of the latter scores, giving the whole movie’s atmosphere another dimension” said Father Son Holy Gore. In the world of TV, Bates continued scoring through Season 2 of both The Path (Hulu) and The Magicians (Syfy), along with Season 1 of Chance (Hulu) and Pure Genius (CBS). His music has been described as “raw and visceral”.
In the audio post world, FOYS has been just as busy. A few of the feature films we have had the pleasure of sound supervising and mixing are Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (Cannes Classics premiere, NYFF), My Entire High School is Sinking into the Sea (TIFF premiere, NYFF), and White Sun (TIFF premiere, Venice). In the new year, we’re super proud to be wrapping up the sound design and mix of Oscar winning director Shawn Christensen’s most recent feature, Sidney Hall, which will make its world premiere at Sundance; along with Alex Ross Perry’s newest feature, Golden Exits, which will also premiere at Sundance. Other special work that our fabulous team has mixed is Project Five by Five: Visit Seattle (Sundance premiere) and the eight piece short series The Players Tribune.
Fall On Your Sword is stoked about the coming year. To get in touch or receive more information about upcoming projects, visit our website http://www.fallonyoursword.com/#!contact and join our monthly mailing list!
Blue Table Post
Blue Table Post, a new post house offering editorial, sound mixing and design, and color grading, opened its doors in 2016. A long time dream of founder and editor Oliver Lief, Blue Table’s launch was the culmination of six years of planning and construction.
It’s first project was CNN’s We Will Rise, a documentary about Michelle Obama’s mission to educate girls around the world, for which Blue Table did all editorial, sound, color finishing and conform. “It was an exciting first project to have in the door,” says Lief. “We had the privilege of working with Meryl Streep and got to screen the film at the White House with the First Lady.” The film then went on to become the most watched documentary in CNN’s history and is a nominee for a 2017 ACE, Eddie Award.
Other projects in 2016 include color grading for Jackson, Maisie Crow’s documentary about the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi, sound mix and design for CNN’s This is Life with Lisa Ling, and ongoing editorial for Craig Macneill’s Lizzie, starring Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart, cut by Abbi Jutkowitz.
The two-story studio features a Dolby Atmos mix room, color grading suite, and rooms for conform, vfx and editing off a beautiful terraced garden. Whether having lunch outside in good weather, or cozying up by the fireplace in winter, clients can enjoy the warm, welcoming atmosphere of Blue Table.

Major Growth for dPost in 2016
dPost, Buffalo’s premier production/post company, experienced major growth in 2016 – both in physical space and project scope – laying the foundation for an exciting year ahead.
In early spring, dPost doubled its footprint by renovating 7,000 square feet in an adjoining building. “dStudio” filled a much-needed void in Western New York, offering a 2,000 square foot studio sound stage with a two-wall cyc and lighting grid. In addition to all new camera, grip and lighting equipment, amenities include a sizable and chic screening room, individual work stations, craft/catering areas and side-by-side make up and wardrobe suites. A second studio offers 3,000 square feet which comfortably houses multiple sets in one location and features a second floor loft for client screening.
dStudio was designed with post and FX in mind, by once editor and now company president Andy Donovan. The new production space complements the six upgraded edit suites at dPost, which enabled collaboration on many diverse post projects in the past 12 months.
A first for dPost was full production and editorial on a music video – So Alive by the Goo Goo Dolls (http://www.dpost.com/project/goo-goo-dolls-so-alive). The addition of Houdini software from SideFX significantly elevated a spec spot for BMW (https://vimeo.com/169127128). Creation of the photo realistic vehicle garnered attention from SHOOTonline, which hailed the project as “one of the greatest spots you’ll never see” (https://shootonline.com/video/best-work-you-may-never-see-bmws-harmony%C2%A0spec-spot-directed-ed-han). A web series for 1800contacts incorporated 2D illustrations in a 3D environment to teach tweens how to insert and remove their contacts (http://www.dpost.com/project/1800-contacts-putting-in-your-contacts).
dPost had the honor of producing a piece to generate awareness and fundraising dollars for Mercy Flight of Western New York (http://www.dpost.com/project/mercy-flight-full-length). This rewarding project staged a collision that caused a vehicle to roll resulting in life-threatening injuries. Along with the nuances of wrecking a vehicle in a realistic way that was also conducive for the camera, the sound design presented many complexities. Audio gathered while filming included the loud, raw and frenetic components of the helicopter landing and taking off, multiple sirens and victims screaming. While some crash audio was recorded on location, most of the vehicle wreckage was created in post. This was married with the on-location audio and original music composition for an overall sound design that made the piece.
“For years, dPost has had to fight geographic profiling, our name for the perception that quality production and post production can’t possibly be found in Buffalo,” explains Donovan. “We have chipped away at this misconception since we opened in 2000 and finally feel we have turned a corner. dPost has become a production destination for high-end work and is starting to attract more national brands and the film industry, all in our beloved city. We’re excited about what’s next.”

Joseph Miller is a music supervisor and clearance consultant. Originally from Long Island, NY, Joseph began his career in music creative and clearance at CBS Sports and A&E in New York City. This past summer he moved from New York to Portland, Oregon to continue working with and building west coast film/TV/and advertising clients. He is closing out this year with a short film airing on international television, a Christmas-meets Scott Pilgrim feature with major celebrities, and a slew of films screening at festivals worldwide. While he prefers working in film, he also worked daily on the latest TV shows, commercials, and digital content as a music supervisor for a catalog and composer house.
In 2016 Joseph immediately was brought on to work on a Sundance NEXT feature called Jacqueline (Argentine). 5 Doctors was his next feature that used exclusively vintage soul – one of Joseph’s favorite genres to listen to. In December he attended the premiere of Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town, which stars Mackenzie Davis, Alia Shawkat, Haley Joel Osment, and Carrie Coon.
In addition to these features, Joseph worked on an incredibly powerful short called Hold Me Down. The film will begin airing on Swedish television and has been invited to screen at next years’ Sundance. Joseph also worked with multiple directors in the prestigious NYU film program, where he cleared major artist material for international festivals.
In 2017 Joseph looks forward to continue sourcing and clearing music for the non-profit documentary called This Is Alzheimer’s. The film is produced by Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity. He also aspires to partner with content companies and become a go-to for anything music: cleared, catalog, or custom.

I’m looking forward to taking on new projects in 2017, happy new year to all! Contact: NYCpostsupers@gmail.com
It's hard to say which came first for me – music or movies. Both have always been a part of my life. Until recently, however, they usually occupied two different spheres. Even as I kept writing and performing music, it was in a separate world from my film work.
I decided to use a different name for music: David O'Neal (just because I thought it sounded more “stagey”). But I didn't consciously make it a secret – in fact I always try to get as many people to my shows as I can (next one is March 18th)!
Over my years in editing, I'd observed the sometimes difficult process of finding and licensing music, whether for a featured track to emphasize the drama, or a song in a bar that's more sound effect than music. In 2013, when I finished my first CD, “Big Deal,” I thought – why not one of my songs?
I was an assistant editor then on a charming independent comedy called Premature. A scene in a bar needed music, and thanks to the friendly and open atmosphere fostered by writer/director Dan Beers, I felt comfortable proposing one of my songs. I think everyone was happy: the production got a cheap music cue, and I got my first licensing deal!
With a little more confidence, and experience of the business end of things, I offered my songs to people I know from the New York editing community.
Alisa Lepselter, editor for Woody Allen, tried an instrumental version of my song “Angel in the Snow” in a bar scene in Irrational Man (2015). Woody approved, and next thing I know I have a song in a Woody Allen movie, with the instrumental version included on the movie's soundtrack on iTunes.
I've had some more songs licensed since – one in FOX TV's Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life and one in HBO's The Night Of.
More unexpected, however, was the email from Woody Allen's producer, Helen Robin, asking for solo acoustic songs. I sent her a few. In her response she asked how I'd feel about performing one ON CAMERA? After blinking at this email for a moment, I replied “Yes. My answer is always 'yes.'”
As the shoot day approached, I expected them to come to their senses: someone will realize they need a real actor, or a younger one. But then I was fit for a costume, given my call time, a little make up, handed a guitar, and there I was on stage at the Bitter End, lip synching to my song as the camera tracked across the room. I got two takes. It was a thrill.
And I was back to my assistant editor job before lunch.
And not only did I make the cut in Woody's Amazon series Crisis in Six Scenes (episode 1), I even made the trailer!
Not sure where it's leading, but I have songs available for your project, too! And a show on March 18th!
