Music in Media / The 2012 Guild Of Music Supervisors Awards (Nominees and Winners)

By Amanda DK

 

Yesterday morning, key players in the field of music supervision all gathered at Magnolia Downtown to honor the outstanding accomplishments of their peers.  The crowd, comprised of music libraries, labels, publishers, studio executives and independent supervisors large and small, was chatty and buoyant (possibly due to the free flowing champagne, mimosas and bellinis), packing the restaurant and spilling out onto both the front and rear patios.  As always, with this tight knit community, it felt more like a casual garden party than a formal affair.  Presenters giggled their way through the lists of nominees, and tossed out industry inside jokes on the fly.  Even a few technical difficulties couldn’t dampen the mood.

Trailer Music Talk / Superheroes, Coming Soon and Never Going Away

by Emily Weber

The depiction of comic book superheroes in cartoons, TV shows, films and video games dates back to I don’t even know when, but I can assure you that the trend is not fading anytime soon.

In a world…[say it in a deep trailer voiceover voice]…where re-makes, sequels and endless Batman movies dominate, there is ONE hero…His name is [dramatic pause] Arthur.

APRIL FOOLS!

Its springtime, the weather’s nice, I’m feeling feisty and what better way to get my silly ON than to talk about great music in a fun trailer for what looks like a very bad movie remake.

Trailer Music Talk / Introduction & Sucker Punch

By Emily Weber

First of all, I am honored and privileged to be a Tadpole Audio contributing writer and this will be the first of many excitable ramblings about the crazy world of trailer music.

Yup! I said it: Trailer Music.  I bet you forget about those little, fast-moving, event-of-the-year mini-movie previews that sum up the best parts of an upcoming movie release.  Whether you are a person who works in the “Movie Trailer Industry” (wait, what?  There’s an INDUSTRY?  Yea, I’ll get to that…), or a musician/composer who is wondering how to get their music into a trailer, or just a regular fan of movies, and you get to the theatre on time so you don’t miss the previews, I think a fun monthly discussion about the music that is IN the trailers you see and the music that has YET to be heard in a trailer, will be a fun thing to talk about.
