Any Film And Tv Composers Have Opinions On Or Have Agents?

Recommended Posts

So I'm looking to go down the route of doing film, tv or theatre music. I enjoy it, have experience and I think I work better when I know I have a project to work against, not only in terms of having deadlines but I like setting music to things.

My question then is, is there anyone out there that either is a film/tv/theatre/whatever composer that knows how the land lies when it comes to using agents to get work? I'm not actually looking to do this just yet, despite having a good looking CV for it at the moment, I'm still looking to build my portfolio, not to mention my experience and knowledge. I just want to know for the future what the deal with having an agent is.

Any thoughts?

Most of that is run through publishing companies. But you will have to do your own legwork as well.

If you are interested in TV, and Film then I would suggest Taxi. Taxi doesn't work as well as being an insider in the industry. To be an insider you'll have to cultivate yourself as a session player. And an arranger. There is a lot of competition in these fields and you are going to need to be great going in. Hence the popularity of music schools that cater to the industry. Everyone else who walks into a studio to record or composes a piece is at the top of their game. If you aren't they'll let you know most probably in an unfriendly way.
