My longest placement to date... nearly 4 minutes!

Postby VanderBoegh » Fri May 04, 2018 7:07 pm

One of the libraries I write for emailed me some craaazy news this morning.... I landed a 3:55 second placement on an episode in one of the Love & Hip Hop shows. Now, we all know that we get paid by the second, and VH1 is (I think) the 2nd highest-paying cable station. So, well, cha-ching!

Oddly enough, the original track is only 1:45 long, so apparently I owe somebody over at Love & Hip Hop a freakin' huge beer for looping the hell out of this track to get it to play for nearly 4 minutes. It's a great reversal on the usual practice of using 20 seconds of our 2 minute cues. Never had one that was repeated so much that the final product was actually longer than the original!

Here's the track, if anyone wants to hear:
"Things Be Poppin": https://rcrft.co/reel/VanderBoegh/LAHH

And if you wanna find me, I'll be in a watersports showroom proactively spending my money on a bass-fishing boat. HA!

Nice one Matt! It'll be great if that episode gets repeated many times worldwide
(and no doubt your local Bass Pro store will be hoping the same :)).

This story/thread reminds me of the Singles Dating Service ad a gentleman reportedly placed:

"Handsome, unmarried, well-to-do single man in search of lady companion who likes to fish.
Please include a photo in your reply - of your bass boat."
:? :P
