FOUR WORLD-RENOWNED PRODUCERS VISIT MONTREAL

Montreal, March 4th, 2019 – The QFTC invited four North-American production and music supervision presidents and vice-presidents for a first visit promoting the Quebec offer for Music Scoring for international movies and TV series. Composers, musicians, sound engineers and technicians presented Quebec’s service offering in their respective area. Several rooms and recording studios were visited, including the Montreal Symphony House during a rehearsal of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra led by Maestro Kent Nagano.

  • Michael Perlmutter, Music Supervisor, Instinct Entertainment and President of the Guild of Music Supervisors
  • Sean Mulligan, VP, Creative, Publishing & Music Supervision, Entertainment One Music
  • Brad Haehnel, Independent Music Editor/Mixer
“Quebec is a fertile ground for music scoring. We have world-class composers, musicians and technicians, and industry decision-makers need to be made aware of this,” stated Pierre Moreau, CEO of the QFTC. “We are confident that concrete projects will come out of this visit.”

This initiative is part of SODEC’s program to support companies specialized in production and recording of musical soundtracks, created jointly with members of the musical community who work on the development of this very specific industry segment. This is one of the ways SODEC contributes to the national and international recognition of Quebec artists, composers and music companies.
 
Eligible projects for the SODEC program involve the creation and production of musical soundtracks produced and recorded entirely in Quebec, with Quebec artists. This program is mainly geared towards film and TV productions, as well as video games.

 

A dozen Quebec composers took part in a networking breakfast at Hotel Nelligan during which they met the four Music Scoring Tour's guests.
