FINALLY - my first PLACEMENT

Post by thegajman » Mon Jun 01, 2020 4:59 pm

4 1/2 years into this and I FINALLY got a placement .. 2 in fact.

I logged into TuneSat yesterday (where I go every now and then, just hoping, dreaming to see SOMETHING!)... and BOOM! Placements for 2 different cues that I did for the same music library (which traces back to a Taxi listing forward - so THANK YOU TAXI!).

One is on a German TV show (18 seconds from 4:42 in this ... https://youtu.be/O8W11hEWEb4?t=282 )

and the other was a hard rock cue that has been used in a "Promo" for a French TV station (Numero 23 / RMC Story). It got played multiple times (not sure if TuneSat just records the first few and then stops or not??).

I have no idea if the eventual performance royalties for these will buy me some nice software or only a cup of coffee, but I'm just really happy to finally have music that got used for something! :)

Huge congrats man! It's such a cool experience to see music that you have spent time and effort on being used in that way. You deserve every bit of validation that comes with that moment. Here's to many more for you!
