This week Art chaired and moderated the PMA Academy: Global Month: A Focus on Australia & New Zealand – state of the music industry and production music.  There were a few hundred in attendance on-line using ZOOM, being executive produced out of Los Angeles, where Art Phillips, sitting in his recording studio in Sydney, created and moderated an effective and quite interesting seminar featuring a small panel of highly regarded industry experts to tell the local story of  OZ & NZ , about our music industry ~ to the world.

The seminar goes for 1 hour, with 50 minutes of content, followed by 10 minutes of Q&A from around the globe.

about the seminar:

The lands ,ɹǝpun uʍop, of Australia and New Zealand, might seem isolated to much of the world due to our location, but both countries are strong and stable forces in the production music marketplace. Our television shows and feature films are broadcast globally, and our content is unique, as is our landscape and set locations.

The panel will examine music licensing from all angles and look at the general trends of music usage, synchronization and licensing from a local perspective.

We will focus on music supervision, copyright, licenses, music & emotional requests from content producers, search & find functions in music library sites, and the APRA/AMCOS mechanical rate card – by using case studies to tell our story.
