Pitching for placements can be a laborious and relentless process. Some key points (not exhaustive though) I would say are:
- Be thorough and prepared (MP3s on Box.com or similar to stream and download, all material tagged with artist/title etc properly, instrumentals available on request)
- Knowing all ownership info (it's imperative to know who owns what, and to be able to get clearance quickly and hassle-free)
- Pitch to the right people (do some research, find out what TV shows are coming up and who might be working on them. Target select music supervisors)
- Enlist a sync agent to pitch on your behalf Get music out to people pre-release, and don't be precious about it!
