TO WebFest 2014: Music Panel

Gratefully for my Someone Not There contributions organizing the soundtrack I’ve been invited to join a panel at Toronto’s WebFest! “…sweeter than Ben and Jerry” indeed.

Brigantine Room, 5:00PM – 50min
I join the TO WebFest panel The Web Series Soundtrack featuring: Adrian Ellis, Tony Tobias & Aaron Tsang. Moderator: Carly Beath.

A great soundtrack to your series can bring that extra magic when looking to make your mark. Panelists will include music supervisors, composers, and musicians covering topics like original composition, music rights acquisition, and working with indie artists.
