“It’s the best part of the job, seeing one of our rights holder secure a sync licensing placement for an indie film” states Jack Skates, Head of Sync at Мusic Gateway.

What is A Sync Placement?

A sync placement refers to the use of music in synchronization with visual media, such as film, television, commercials, video games, and other multimedia projects. It involves the licensing of music for use in a specific scene or moment in the visual media, with the aim of enhancing the emotional impact or narrative of the visual content.

Sync placements are an essential part of the entertainment industry, as they help to create a more immersive and engaging experience for the audience. The right music can help to set the tone, create tension, evoke emotions, and even become an integral part of the story itself.

The process of securing a sync placement involves several steps. First, the music supervisor or producer responsible for selecting the music will identify the appropriate track or composer for the project. They will then negotiate with the rights holders of the music to obtain the necessary licenses and permissions for its use.

The licensing process typically involves negotiating a fee for the use of the music, as well as determining the specific terms of the license, such as the duration of the use, the territory in which it can be used, and the media in which it can be used.

Once the license is secured, the music is then synced to the visual media in the editing process. This involves precisely timing the music to specific moments in the visual content to create the desired effect.

Sync placements can be a lucrative source of income for musicians, as they can generate significant royalties and exposure for their work. They can also be an effective way for artists to reach new audiences and gain recognition for their music.
