Music Licensing for Film & TV

Film & Television

Our licensing consultants and partners have been involved in the music supervision on countless Academy award winning films and Emmy award winning programs.

Whether it be a track from a ground-breaking new artist to a chart topping top 10 billboard hit, Melke’s job is to identify the most appropriate music for the motion picture or TV show.

We then negotiate the copyright approval and associated rights for use from the copyright owner/administrator of the recording and publishing of the music, which may not necessarily be the same entity.

Signed artists’ publishing (the music’s intellectual property rights) are usually managed by a publishing company or publishing rights division within a label, and the recording (or “Master”) is usually managed by a record company or master rights division within a label.

Music placements include, but are not limited to, the American Pie, Ocean Eleven and Spiderman franchises, Wedding Crashers, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and TV shows 24, Arrested Development, CSI, House and Desperate Housewives. (see Film and TV slide presentation on the right side of this page).
