Placement is the new radio. Come meet these career-makers.


NARIP President Tess Taylor is regularly retained by a private European music organization to secure meetings with top music supervisors in Los Angeles for its members. Placements secured and professional relationships formed through these meetings are so good that we felt this format would work well for those who represent catalogues and/or seek intimate pitch opportunities with the best (and busiest) music supervisors in town.

Limited to 15 people, NARIP’s sessions enable you to get to know the supervisors and more importantly, enable music supervisors to get to know you. At private sessions in 2010, Alicen Schneider needed a theme song for a game show (Minute To Win It) and Gary Calamar needed a title song for an MTV series. At another session, Carolyn Richardson needed a theme song for a television project. Participants were able to pitch for these opportunities on the spot, receiving instant feedback as to whether a song was appropriate or not, and WHY. This valuable feedback makes better pitches – and ultimately, placements – possible. In some cases, participants even had time to re-work their music to better fit the supervisors’ needs.
