    How To Place Your Music Into Film & Television Trailers - Danny Exum - MUBUTV: Insider Series - SE.7

    10:49

    MUBUTV's Ritch Esra sits down with Danny Exum, Director Music at Workshop Creative to discuss the role music plays in trailers for film and television and other visual media and how the various platforms (Film, Television, Online) effect his musical choices. In addition, he talks about how trailers are a marketing tool and the decision makers are not the same personnel who make the decisions on what music goes into a film, television show or other
    visual media.

    Danny got his start in the music industry as a DJ and live mix engineer at the esteemed 88.9 WERS in Boston, before bolting westwards to work in EMI’s Film/TV department. Since those days he has built a strong career as a Music Supervisor for features, television and theatrical marketing. His credits include film marketing campaigns for Edge Of Tomorrow, Lone Survivor, The Avengers, Wreck It Ralph, Watchmen, The Dark Knight, and X Men: Days Of Future Past, as well as the independent films Come Down Molly, The List, and The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye. He has been nominated twice for a Guild of Music Supervisors award for Best Use Of Music in a film trailer. Danny is currently a partner in the music supervision collective High Bias and the Director of Music at the film marketing agency Workshop Creative.

    Questions asked during video:

    0:23 - You work in a very interesting field, the distinct field. It’s separate from film, it’s separate from television, it’s more in the marketing area. Talk about what makes the trailers distinct?

    1:22 - The other interesting thing about trailers is that often your musical choices are serving a marketing need rather than serving a creative thing for the motion-picture. Talk about how sometimes trailers will use songs and things that aren’t even in the movie.

    3:18 - Do you ever design different kinds of trailers for different kinds of platforms, ones we’ve never seen on TVs?

    4:55 - Someone in your position can offer different amounts of music that might be totally different than a feature film or a TV show?

    6:21 - When you’re making trailers, is it almost like an audition process that many people will get a film, different houses will get a film and they’ll have to submit? Is it an idea or is it a demo?

    8:04 - Do you find yourself in a trailer world nowadays, doing trailers from things outside a film, outside of television, like webisodes, or online things?

    5:12 - Given that that’s what your criteria is, how much time do you take when you’re gonna consider a new client,which time you take working with and getting to know them in relation to these qualities before you say let’s pull the trigger?

    6:16 - You’re taking on young managers to work in your company. They are obviously a little different than an artist, it’s not the same elements. What kinds of things are you looking for and talent that you might be looking to bring into your company from the management end?

    9:47 - Talk about the clients you have. You deal specifically in the world of songwriters, record producers. Are some of your clients also on the artist side or on the writer side or are you focusing primarily on the creative writing producing side?

    12:35 - I came across a video where you were speaking to a group at a conference and you spoke about a concept called mental Wi-Fi. If you could speak to us about that?

    15:05 - You deal with a lot of artists, you deal with a lot of songwriters and producers. What do you feel being on the front lines, is the greatest challenge that artists and producers and songwriters and creatives in general face today?
