We can't believe it's been 2 weeks since the inaugural Aotearoa Sync-Posium at Roundhead Studios. It was an incredible 4 days dedicated to music for screens with 2 days of panels and 2 days of workshops which were a true celebration of the talent we have here in New Zealand. We couldn't be more thankful to all those who helped, participated, and attended!

This couldn't have been possible without Greg Haver and our incredible sponsors, here are some of the highlights!

“Shadow in the Cloud Review: Chloë Grace Moretz’s Feminist, High-Flying Monster Movie Is a Blast.” Incredibly proud of this great film I worked on! I had a great time working with the brilliant director Roseanne Liang, producer Tom Hern and the composer Mahuia Bridgman-Cooper.

Some films demand a willing suspension of disbelief, expecting audiences to put aside quibbles of what’s plausible, probable or even possible. Roseanne Liang’s “Shadow in the Cloud” parts ways with…

It's Quizness Time

Mind Your Music would like to thank Jack Mensah, Jenna Ackerman, Otis Rachtman and Arlo Levin for helping us put together something new on the fly. It was challenging but it was fun. It's nice to have projects to do in times like these. Please like/follow the Quizantine page if you want to play on Zoom or watch the live stream on the next quiz.

Well, we did our first Quizantine (a pub quiz in quarantine) on Zoom on Tuesday. Hosted by Peter Urlich & Phoebe Falconer and thrown together by the team at MIND YOUR MUSIC . We had a great crowd on Zoom. Next one will be a little more flash but never too flash because it's a quiz. Even though we have such flashy hosts! Youtube randomly selected this thumbnail thanks for always being so pretty Phoebe. Oh and we will be streaming live next time so everyone can play.

A Guide to Harry Nilsson, Who You've Loved Forever Without Knowing It

"According to Spotify, streams of “Gotta Get Up” have shot up by more than 2,000 percent since Russian Doll’s premiere." I was so happy to hear Harry Nilsson featured so heavily in Russian Doll. It's inspiring to see such a great show share Harry Nilsson with the world.

The songwriting savant has brought us a lot more than “Gotta Get Up” from 'Russian Doll.' From 60s pop to 70s decadence, here’s a primer.

Like our first Clinic, our second – on Sat 21 August – will be a game of two halves. Before half-time, we’ll get stuck into the ins and outs, dos and don’ts of licensing great music to fit your production. The line-up includes: Pennie Black from Native Tongue Music Publishing Jane Jacob from The SyncHouse Jenna Ackerman from MIND YOUR MUSIC and Kim Green from Music Licensing Check out the info here: https://bit.ly/3yJUpCH And see what happens in the second half. Thanks to the Screen Music and Sound Guild of NZ for partnering with us to present this session.
The 2021 #docedgeclinics programme continues on Sat 21 August, with a session on licensing and using other people’s legwork to enhance your stories. If you need a still or footage of an instantly-recognisable moment, footage of a place you can’t go, a piece of music that tells your audience how to feel... you’ll be in the right place. We’ll talk all that and more with guests including Getty Images Arran Birchenough, Native Tongue Music Publishing Pennie Black, The SyncHouse Jane Jacob, MIND YOUR MUSIC Jenna Ackerman, Music Licensing Kim Green, Gardenofevilmovie Larry Keating, NHNZ Worldwide Lemuel Lyes and The University of Auckland Phoebe Shum. #docedgeclinics - sharing smarts to upskill new, emerging and mid-career filmmakers and content creators.
