Women In Music & New York Women in Film & Television panel!

Feb 6, 2014

On January 15, 2014, Women In Music (WIM), in partnership with New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT), presented an impassioned and insightful panel of leading experts discussing music placement and licensing for film, TV, commercials and other audio-visual works, to a “sold out” room at BMI’s offices in New York City. From the craft of music supervision on the latest Golden Globe/Oscar winning films and Emmy winning TV shows to insidebusiness information on the latest licensing deals, price points, and digital platforms, the discussion provided invaluable insight on new trends in music licensing. Panelists included Susan Jacobs (Music Supervisor (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, Little Miss Sunshine, etc)); Susan Arnold (VP Commercial Music Group, SONY/ATV Music Publishing); Mark Frieser (CEO, Sync Exchange); Bentley Weiner (Director and Coordinating Producer, HBO Sports (Emmy award winning series “24/7″)); and Adam Kane Norcott, (Director, Business Development & Creative Strategy, Music Dealers); and the panel was moderated by entertainment attorney and VP/General Counsel of Women In Music, Jennifer Newman Sharpe.

A big thank you to our outstanding panelists and our amazing partner NYWIFT for helping to make this event a huge success!

EN2A2917On December 4th, 2013, WIM once again held its highly attended and hugely successful annual holiday party at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. With the help and generous support of over 20 sponsors (see below) and the hard work of its board and volunteers, WIM brought together the wonderful and hard working professionals of the music industry, including industry executives, media partners, sponsors and performers alike, to celebrate the year’s accomplishments of its members and kick-off the holiday season. The WIM Holiday Party had over a 1000 attendees, a great silent auction, complimentary beverages and food, a very active “red carpet” step and repeat area with press/media coverage, amazing DJ’s throughout the evening, and a fantastic performance by RCA recording artist Betty Who! This year’s event marked the renewed sense of community and engagement fostered by the organizations leadership, with a focus on education, empowerment, and collaboration across entertainment platforms. WIM would like to thank its sponsors, performers, board of directors and volunteers for their generous support and all of our members and guests for attending.
