The Guild of Music Supervisors will hold their first awards brunch to honor outstanding achievement in film, TV, games and trailers. The inaugural event will be held in Los Angeles on Grammy Day, Feb 13.
â€œMusic Supervision combines the creative and the business, the left and right brain,â€ says the Guildâ€™s co-founder and president Maureen Crowe. â€œWe want to educate the public and the industry as to what it is we do. As a group, music supervisors are so often pitched to by other people from the film, television and game industries, but thereâ€™s no one really looking out for our interests. Just as you want the best cinematographer, editor or sound person on your film, TV, game or trailer, you need a great music supervisor. Hiring a member of this Guild assures that kind of quality.â€
Founded in 2008, the Guild of Music Supervisor, is to preserve and recognize the skill set of the music supervisor, facilitate services such as health care and pension programs, and secure recognition from the film and music communities for their craft.
The awards will be nominated and voted on by Guild members. Check out the official site for info: www.guildofmusicsupervisors.com. The event is hosted by Guild founding sponsors music publisher BMG Rights Management and music library AMP Music.
