Music Licensing for Documentary Films crash course November 8th!

The right music can be a central part of documentary storytelling, and it’s essential to know how to get permission to include other people’s songs and recordings in your film. Join NYFA on November 8 for a crash course in using music in docs. This session will cover the nuts and bolts of how to license copyrighted music for your film and how to factor music permissions into your creative choices and budgets. Topics covered will include researching and identifying owners of masters and publishing rights, how and when to ask permission, what kinds of rights to secure, and how to communicate effectively with music copyright owners
