...and the deal-o-mania goes on: movie placement!!

Post by gitarrero » Fri Oct 12, 2007 10:04 am

hey gang,3 weeks ago I was in vacation in rhodos/greece.my cell phone was off because I typed the wrong code and it got locked (whooops), so I decided to check my email (which had an autoreply) after a few days...aaaand, tadaaaa: my song "hit the road" was choosen for a feature movie (remember those listing about a film with teenage bankrobbers..?)!I held this back until everything with the license (I've never licensed music directly for films before) was cleared. now that is done and I thought I let you know it this was a direct result of a taxi-forward (I think it was through dispatch).here's my track:http://www.martytone.ch/songbase/stream ... file=15see ya all @ the road rally!martinPS: isn't that crazy..? I'm a member since ONE year and I had 5 offers of contracts which resulted in royalties, various deals (cd-sampler, ringtone, film...) and license fees... not to mention all the experience that came with it, especially here on this forum! I think I will stay a little bit with taxi... so: thanks taxi & thanks forum colleagues!

Very cool, Martin. Funny, I just visited your website this morning and happened to listen to "Hit the Road" before I saw this post. Congratulations
