First Royalty Statement & New Placements

Post by markhimley » Fri Sep 14, 2018 3:35 pm

Very happy to report that I got my first royalty statement today, and it was bigger than I was expecting! THANK YOU Taxi and the whole community; I've come a long way since my first submission when I joined in January of 2016 (my first submission was over 5 minutes long, basically the music from a short film I scored, and I was shocked when it got returned :lol: :lol: )

I could not be more grateful for Taxi and the wonderful community. I've learned so much from you all and have made so many great friends. While I still feel like a total rookie, I feel like I'm finally at a point where things are starting to really click and I can give back in small bits here and there to newer members which is such a great feeling too. The Taxi community really is one of a kind - one that really keeps that pay it forward mentality going.

Also got some cool new placements! I got an email from one of my publishers earlier this week informing me that I had several placements in a documentary series on E! called "Citizen Rose".

If you're just starting out with your membership, or with this path in general, keep at it!! It WILL pay off. Write, submit, forget, repeat.

Congrats Mark! Look at how far you've come since the last Road Rally! I knew you'd start seeing results in the form of placements. Keep doing what you do. It's obviously working.

rock on Mark!!! So great to hear!!

I got my first royalty statement too. It took me awhile to figure out what I was looking at, as I'd never seen one before. It's not quite enough to retire on, but on the way.

Congrats again and hope to see you in a few weeks at the RR.
