AIMP Webinar with The Nashville Film Festival: Current State of Sync

Join us for this discussion with sync music executives on the current condition of the film, tv, advertising, and game sync markets. With covid shifting production schedules, many music supervisors had to shift their music searches and thus music publishers, labels, and sync rep companies were shifting the music they pitched. The current needs of the sync market and potential trends that may be coming will be discussed.
