The countdown begins... PMC2019

https://pmamusic.com/pmc2019/



Love it or hate it, the 2019 Production Music Conference is almost here. For those of you who haven't been looking, it's Sept 23-26th, 2019 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel (same place it was last year) right next to Hollywood And Highland.

I am moderating a panel discussion this year... It's on Wed Sept 25th at 3:50pm. It's called "After The License" and it focuses on what happens to our music after we win the license and all the BS people downstream in the production departments have to deal with. I'm still solidifying the panelists but so far I have a Picture Editor/Creative Director, Music Editor, and Re-recording mixer. I'm still waiting to get confirmation from a Music Supervisor. It should be an interesting panel. As far as I know, there hasn't been any other panels that have gotten picture editors, music editors and re-recording mixers up on stage, so it should be fun!

If anyone else here from GS is on a Panel or moderating a panel post it here in this thread and we can all try to attend and support you!

And like last year... let's get a list here of who's going. I'm hoping I can put together the same Gearslutz Breakfast Meetup at The Griddle like we did last year. So if you are up for meeting up for breakfast (and some of the best french toast in the world), post a message in this thread!

Cheers everyone and I'll see some of you in a few weeks!

Looks like it's $389 to attend as a non member. Seems pretty steep to me. I do know some other people going and plan to meet up outside the conference. Maybe I'm just cheap.

Ugh, I still don't know if I'll be attending this year. I was planning on it, but then I got a call to appear on a game show that's going to require me to fly to LA a few weeks before the conference. Don't know if I'm going to make two cross-country trips so close together. It was fun last year, though!

I’m up for it, depending on the day.

I'll be there and always look forward to it. Its a great hang, its great information and its excellent for business. If your on the fence about going, i can tell you first hand that this thing pays for itself. I've made so many great relationships and connections that have translated into money in my pocket, its crazy that more composers don't go! That being said, hope you can make it Alpaca!

I'll also be on a panel this year talking about the different types of composer contracts us as composers face out here in the PM world.

I'll be on Thursday the 26th at 4:10 pm - 5:10 pm
“Wheeling and Dealing” - Navigating the Ever-Changing World of Library Composer Deals

"Helping Composers make the right decisions on work that best fits their needs, debating and explaining the various deals out there and the pros and cons of each."

Looking forward to it and since i have been in so many different types of deals I think i may actually have some decent input to say on the matter :P

Oh no!

In addition to having issues with my email (I switched from GoDaddy to iPage last September, which has been a nightmare!), I had serious back surgery in early November, so it may have ended up in Spam and I was too medicated to see it. My sincerest apologies.

I'm totally looking forward to catching up!

ok, we are getting closer...

So far it looks like these people are coming:

@ Mike P
@ clearside
@ kclements


Anyone else from GS wanna meet up for breakfast at the Griddle?

@ AlpacaRoom
@ VitaEtMusica
@ JohnFulford
@ ehrenebbage
@ Chuck.dallas


I also have a few people from outside Gearslutz that are coming too... so it should be fun!

I still haven't picked a day yet... But I was thinking maybe Wed Sept 25th in the morning... I could do Thurs morning but I figured Wed might be better since then we can keep running into the new people you met at the breakfast during the day and saying hi.

Sorry, I take this back. I won't be there until after 10AM on Wednesday. Hope to see some of you there! If things don't work out for Wed, I could do Thurs morning.

Unfortunately I'm going to have to miss the PMC this year ... just got back from the west coast and my mom's been sick, so I'm not going to make the trip this year. Hopefully next year, though. Have fun, everyone, maybe mail me a pancake.

(We were actually in LA last week and my wife insisted that we go to the Griddle for pancakes. Might have made a mistake by showing up at 8:30am on a Sunday, though: that line!)

Hey Derek! THANKS for the invite! It was great meeting everybody there last year and having some tasty breakfast. Mom's French Toast was fantastic -- the food highlight of my trip! I'm bummed because I have a commitment in Houston (ugh!) the same time so I can't attend PMA or your breakfast get together this year. Hopefully it will work out next year.

Have a GREAT PMA and tell everybody 'Hi!' for me. If any of you ever come through Dallas and want some of the best TexMex or BBQ in the country, please let me know and I'll be your personal Uber.

Thursday morning is looking better for me now as I'm having trouble finding a way to get my kids to school on time for Wed morning.

Clearside said he can't do thurs, is thurs morning bad for anyone else?
