What do Music Supervisors do?
Music Supervisors negotiate deal points and contracts, prepare budgets, and attend scheduling meetings and spotting sessions. They oversee the compositional process, ensuring that the required music is being written, listened to, and reported upon. They organize music orchestration and copying. When larger sessions are required, e.g., involving an orchestra, they liaise with the musician's contractor about rates, line up, and invoicing. They also check engineer and studio availability and, when necessary, hire a conductor. When organizing source music, Music Supervisors prepare source music schedules, and keep everyone informed and updated, e.g., about deviations from allocated budgets. Music Supervisors check licenses, and forward them to the production company, highlighting any possible issues, and act as the liaison between the record companies, the publishers, and the production company. They produce the music cue sheet for final delivery, ensuring that the duration of the music used conforms to the terms of the negotiated contract.
