Garnish Music Production School in London

Music Licensing Partnership With Filmatography

We are very excited to be in partnership with Filmatography for our ESD course. Filmatography have studios in London and Dubai, and deliver world-class filming, photography and animation. The aim is to provide Filmatography with creative talent from our ESD learners to enhance their music production capabilities for their roster of photographers, filmographers and high-profile corporate clients, which right now include Quintessentially, Mandarin Oriental, Davidoff, Aston Martin and Andaz.

Filmatography are distinguished in their ability to produce bespoke music pieces as part of the creative process as well as offer clients tracks from their own licensable pre-written music pool. All learners on our advanced ESD course will start a project to a Filmatography reel in the sync section of their course with Dom, with a choice of production genres. The musical pieces produced in the process will be assigned to our pool of music ready to benefit from publishing revenue shares. The deal will be an equal 50:50 split with Filmatography which is what you would expect at most production music houses, with 0% going to the school. For many of our ESD learners, this will be their first pitch for sync, and give them all the technical capabilities they need for commercial commissions in week two of their course.

Given the advance level of the learners on our ESD course and the faith Filmatography have in our training, this is no standard project pitch; all projects will be listened to and considered by the directors of Filmatography for not only the current reel, but with a view to be considered for Filmatography’s brand new roster of composers for a long-term professional relationship with paid commissions. That’s right, successful learners are straight out of their course with a fantastic opportunity to monetise their course music and future pieces! And perhaps best of all, no one will have any rights to your music until it’s commissioned for a project. You sign the  deal only when we find a home for your music!

Aston Martin Music LicensingThere’s still an opportunity here for all; we welcome unlicensed music from everyone, and you can submit a 30 second MP3 snippet of any genre of music together with your address and phone number to [email protected]. Only outstanding submissions will be considered and submissions outside of the ESD course will go through a filter process before they reach director level. If you submit this way, you will hear from us only if your music has made an impression, and we will require a longer version and a short agreement to say your music is unlicensed and that you will tell us if there are any changes.

 

Dave Garnish of Garnish Music Production School: At Filmatography, there’s a genuine chance to get your music used in the growing market of filmographers and photographers who are increasingly paying for original music in their work. This is a relatively new and growing niche which we are plugged into right now, and we expect a good percentage of learners from each ESD course to get something placed, as the quality from everyone on the course should be as good as anything already in the catalogue which I am familiar with. All of our learners will have a good chance, and be able to easily hold their own at this level, and have something on the CV to build upon. 

We could have gone the major publisher route, but unless you’re handed an upper five-figure advance like I was from Universal Music Publishing, no one is going to go to any trouble to get your music placed as they would have no sum to worry about recouping. As good as it would look, nothing would ever happen. This is better; it’s realistic.

 

Peter Rear, CEO of Filmatography: As we develop our music partnership with you, the artist, and the Garnish Music Production School, it is important to define our roles. We (Filmatography) produce films for high-end events, and corporate clients, and for promotional campaigns. Our films are inspired by the footage of our cameramen, and the music that we edit to. We would like you (the Artist) to compose one music track for one of our existing films (to be determined by Filmatography). Your music track will be put up against your fellow colleagues and will be selected by the Filmatography studio for use on the existing film, as well as for future productions by Filmatography.

If your track is selected, your profile will be added to our website under our music composers and put forward for future work. This will give you the opportunity to market your composition skills for paid commissions. An outline of our music licensing and unique music composition opportunities are on the next page. Where direct revenue is generated from the use of this track by commercial assignment, as outlined in Filmatography’s music licensing agreement, Filmatography will split revenue with the artist. In all other cases, the music track will be used promotionally to increase awareness of the artist and Filmatography.

Future Prospects:
Once we have a sample of your work in use for our internal commissions, we can then begin to market you for commercial projects. There are two avenues in which you can make revenue.

1. Commercial Commissions – Filmatography will market your skills as a music composer for unique music compositions for commercial and online promotional productions. The composition and licensing of the music track will be managed by Filmatography and revenue will be split 50:50 between artist and Filmatography.

Sample Rate: £1,950 for music composition, non-exclusive license
(£975 to artist / £975 to Filmatography)
Plus Licensing for future years

2. Licensed Music – Filmatography will put your music track on our licensing system to be licensed to other videographers and production studios for use in their productions. The music tracks will be managed by Filmatography and revenue for the licensing will be split 50:50 between the artist and Filmatography.
Sample Rate: £145 per annum, non exclusive
(£72.50 to artist / £72.50 to Filmatography)
