Producer

Music composer/producer here with 20+ years ad music experience. Curious as to how different agencies seek and find music suppliers? Cold emails are a shot in the dark, no one answers calls and Google ad bumps feel like the wrong fit.

If this is you or your agency, how do you like to be approached? Thx.

    Interview

    Simple and quick interview process. More concerned with reliability rather than experience. Maybe asked 5 questions max. Not so much concerned with personal appearance as long as you have good personal hygiene.
