At One Night Stand Music we like to do things a little differently and when 2 independent movies ended up on our desks in the same week, we thought…..this could be great for the amazing artists on Music Xray!
So by sending us your best tracks today, you will actually be submitting your music for…
Film 1 – A modern love story set in a small town in Midwest America and in New York City.
Film 2 – A suburban thriller. Set in and around LA.
For either / both films we will be considering tracks from the following genres…
Punk, Alternative, Indie, Pop, Country, (some) Classical and Soundtrack, Rap / Hip Hop, Jazz, Easy Listening, Rock, Metal, Blues and EDM. As with so many modern films, there will be a lot of incidental music playing in the background on the radio, in bars, in stores etc, so we do really welcome most genres to fit our brief of “delivering a wide and eclectic rage of outstanding tracks” for the producers of both films.
If your music is not a fit for one movie, it will automatically be considered for the other and there is of course the potential for the right track to be considered for BOTH films!
Payouts will range from $1,000 to $3,500 per track.
Partials, cues and instrumentals are also welcome.
Please don’t miss out on this outstanding chance to potentially land 2 placements with 1 submission – Send us your best music TODAY!
