My Very First Placement!

Postby janetsnare » Sat Jul 07, 2018 5:48 pm

Back in 2015, TAXI forwarded an instrumental of mine called "The Haunt" to a ghost-hunting TV show. The music editor of the show subsequently contacted me, asking for my PRO info because he was including the cue in the show. The show (called the RIP Files, Series 2, "Prisoners in Time" episode) was not picked up in the U.S. but went on to air in SysFy Asia and Really TV in the U.K.


I never received foreign royalties, and because I couldn't access the overseas broadcasts, couldn't verify that the cue was actually used in the show. However, today I saw the show on Amazon Prime Video and verified the cue had been used. (Just have to sort the lack of royalties out with my PRO now.)


But I wanted to report this first-time success, even though it took forever to verify and looks like even longer before I get paid:) :D !

It often takes as much as 18 months to 2 years for foreign royalties to show up. There are many factors including if/when the party who used the track filed a cue sheet. If it's more than 2 years since broadcast (or maybe if over 18 months), I would contact your PRO and ask if they can assist you. Having real video evidence as you do from Amazon Prime helps.

Congrats! :D

Good luck!
