TRAILER MUSIC: Big orchestras. Big covers. Big rises. BIG changes!

Since our last film trailer panel a few years ago, there have been many interesting changes in the world of Trailer Music.  The bar is being raised each day for the quality of trailer music and more publishers and libraries are in the mix than ever before. Top names in music are writing for trailers now; “trailerized” cover songs are very popular; sound design, custom music, and overlays are becoming the norm; and the quality in overall production has stepped up tremendously.  What does this all mean for the indie publisher?  Please join us for an informative update from expert panelists in this very important and potentially lucrative niche.

Additional Speaker Information

Born and raised in Washington State (SEAHAWKS!) Anny Colvin got her start in music in New York City, attending NYU and studying music business. After interning for Universal Music during college, she began her career at Motown and Republic Records in the video production department. Here, she worked on a wide range of music videos from Eminem/Akon’s “Smack That,” to The Rapture’s “Woohoo Alright, Yeah Uh Huh.“ In 2008, Anny moved to Los Angeles where she spent one year at UMe and three years in the Film/TV Department at Capitol Records. She moved into publishing in 2011 as the Film/TV creative at indie publishing company Position Music. Anny joined the trailer house, Vibe Creative, as the head of music supervision in 2013. There she worked on various marketing campaigns including Jungle Book, Ant Man, and The Purge franchise. Anny is now head of music supervision for Jax Films and Rock Paper Scissors. She just started there 3 days ago!

After over a decade working as a music supervisor for the marketing campaigns for some of the top-grossing films from Fox, Universal, Warner Bros, The Walt Disney Company and others, Maura Duval-Griffin joined the team at acclaimed trailer music library audiomachine as Director of Business Development and Music Licensing. I am also a busy freelance music supervisor who works with a variety of creative agencies in Los Angeles, New York and London on movie trailers, TV promos, video game trailers, ads and anything else that comes my way. A proud member of the Guild of Music Supervisors with over 20 years in the music industry, including time served in college radio, record retail, sales and distribution, and marketing, I bring a broad perspective and a deep appreciation for the process of putting music to picture.

Sally House began her career in advertising in Johannesburg, before an opportunity at Ogilvy & Mather brought her to Los Angeles. She joined Kenwood USA where she worked for six years from acting as advertising manager to the Director of Marketing. Next step was VP of Marketing at Clarion USA. In 2005, music came calling. Today, as the Benevolent Dictator of The Hit House, Sally brings her vast marketing and branding experience to the music business.
