The Role of the Music Supervisor

The music supervisor plays a vital role in bringing music into any film, television or video game production. If playlists and soundtracks are your jam, this career path may be the one for you.

As Kayo Pino explains, a career in music supervision is both administrative and creative. On the creative side, the music supervisor plays a key role in identifying music to be used in particular scenes. On the administrative side, it’s the music supervisor’s job to navigate the mass of clearances and processes involved in acquiring the legal approval to use a particular piece of music in a production. In addition to breaking down what a day in the life of a music supervisor looks like, Kayo offers practical insights to artists and songwriters looking to pitch their work to a music supervisor for use in television, film, or video games.
