MD Red Package So you want to release a CD or demo. To start you need to find a qualified studio, a mixer, a mastering engineer, and a producer. You also need to develop a professional looking CD complete with barcode, professional looking cover art, and wrapped in cellophane. You also want to distribute your CD,  get your music reviewed by music critics, and even get it played on the radio. You also need a professional looking URL, and a Press Pack that says all the right things. You also want a spokesman, someone who will be your professional representative. Well look no further.  IMD can do it all for you (Representation, Exposure, Development) at a very reasonable price via our IMD Red Package.

URL Development  You may be limiting yourself with just a My Space, or Facebook. For example what happens if an A&R wants to download your Press Pack, or read a music or concert review, look at a detailed concert schedule? The best angle is utilizing both My Space & a URL. This is the best way to get your point across. A URL is not expensive when you consider the overall impact it will have. It also separates you from other bands that don't have a URL & clearly shows you took the time & initiative to go above & beyond something that was for free. The truth is anyone can start a band, anyone can launch a My Space page, but it takes skill & business savvy to build an effective & professional looking web site.

Press Pack development When I was an A&R I would sometimes review hundreds of Press Packs & "1 Sheets" in just one sitting, so your Press Pack has got to say the all right things, if not you could end up in the round file within seconds. OK who's the band, where are they from, what do they sound like, why the hell should I care? Over the years, after working with prominent A&R's, producers, journalists, etc, I am well aware of all the components that make for an effective Press Pack.

VIDEO GAMES PLACEMENT

 

Music Placement Companies Many independent musicians, bands, composers donít have access to labels and publishing companies to pitch their music to producers. Music Placement Companies can help fill the void. These companies present the music of independent artists and composers to the film and TV communities that may be searching for it. This is one approach some artists seem to like, however there are some things to consider. These Companies serve as a middleman between you the artist & the Music Supervisor. Having sad that they get a percentage of what you could earn independently.

TV, FILM, FEATURE FILMS, COMMERCIALS

 

 

Movie Music Supervisor A-List Chances are if you have written, sequenced, electronica, dub out, chill type music there is a Movie Music Supervisor looking to sequence it into a TV or Film production right now. IMD has an extensive Music Supervisor  "A-List" Registry that lists hundreds of Movie Music Supervisors around the country & abroad. These professionals work directly for Film Producers, and it's there job to provide music to "sync" into various scenes throughout the film. This process also applies to  TV productions as well. IMD recommends you submit your music, in conjunction with a solid press pack, "1 sheet", and  formal letter stating your licensing terms for availability, and things can get really interesting  IMD also recommends you follows up each package with a formal phone call, & e-mail correspondence. Most of the Music Sups I've been in contact with welcome these kinds of professional looking packages, & keep them on file until music is needed to make a production deadline by a Producer. Producers are always searching for the perfect piece of music to fit the perfect scene, why not  put your music right under their noses.
