The Guild of Music Supervisors Canada has announced the inaugural SOUND + VISION Virtual Sync Conference, to be held Nov. 16-20, 2020.

The guild invites songwriters, artists, agents, filmmakers, producers, directors, advertising executives, and anyone working in the “sound and vision” space, around the world, to join in for free virtual seminars. The daily panels and workshops will break down everything you wanted to learn about synchronizing music with onscreen productions in multiple media platforms.

Potential highlights so far include keynote interviews with filmmaker Charles Officer and screen composer Amanda Jones; a creative discussion of the Sony Pictures movie The Kid Detective, with executive producer and lead actor Adam Brody, alongside the film’s director, composer, picture editor, and music supervisor; a creative breakdown of a Doordash TV ad, with the  agency, artist Haviah Mighty, and the music supervisor; and a creative breakdown of the Netflix series Tiny Pretty Things, with showrunners, the composer, and the music supervisor.

The organizers suggest charitable donations from attendees, to go towards either Black Mental Health and/or Black Youth Helpline, with recommended donations of $2.00 to $5.00 per panel/workshop attended.
