Frequency of Dispatch listings

Post by BWil » Thu May 14, 2015 11:54 am

Hey guys, this is my 2nd go-round on TAXI (had a year's subscription back in 2012) and I'm looking to make the most of the opportunities this time around. My area of expertise is instrumental cues (orchestral, hip-hop) and I've read that Dispatch can be useful. Quite a few people have noted that their first deals were through Dispatch listings. What I'm wondering is this:

How many additional listings will be available as a Dispatch member?

If it's not a significant increase in opportunities, I have the feeling I may not get my money's worth. Any info you guys can give me about the Dispatch listings you see would be great!

I see a lot more instrumental and hip hop listings in dispatch, but it's a gamble as to what's coming up next. You can always try it for a prorated period of time.

I found it very useful to join the dispatch mailing list for a couple of months before I upgraded.

That gave me a great feel for the types of music and the turn around times involved.

You don't have to be a dispatch member to get on the mailing list. Just give them a call.

+1 ... Then when you see a listing you want to submit to, join then. Your cost is prorated by where you are in your regular membership year. So, for example, if you join Dispatch 1/2 way through your regular year, it will cost you $75 as opposed to the $150.

Definitely get on that email list!! Good luck!!

That's how I decided to upgrade to Dispatch. I got on the mailing list and then pulled the trigger when I saw my genre come up.

Lately Dispatch has been full of Orchestral and Hip-Hop. And TONS of other quick turnaround instrumental styles.

Current open opps are:

R&B/URBAN INSTRUMENTALS
EMOTIONAL ORCHESTRAL UNDERSCORE CUES
EPIC MOVIE TRAILER INSTRUMENTALS
SCIENTIFIC UNDERSCORE INSTRUMENTALS (i'm working on this one btw)
Multi-Genre Composer and Producer of TV and Film music Providing Easy to Use Cues for Every Scene

Thank you guys, this really helped! I called in and asked to receive Dispatch emails and BOOM. Got one I could absolutely submit to. Went ahead and upgraded to Dispatch, only to find 2 more listings that I could submit to! I'm excited for the increased number of opportunities. From everything I've read on the forums, more listings = more opportunities = more placements, so I'm pumped.


Check out my pieces here and feel free to drop me some feedback!
