Summer Action Film - Get Your Music in a Summer Action Film and Get Paid
Doug Diamond / Diamondigital Media is pitching music to a production company seeking to license original tracks for a 2018 Action/Drama film release. Music supervisors are looking for independent artists, publishers, and composers with commercial-ready music for the following scenes/scenarios and moods:

-Computer Hacker Scene-
Music should feel intense, intrusive, dark, sinister, flippant and edgy. High-energy, under pressure scenes show masked savvy hackers compromising civilians to gain control. Instrumentals or vocals.

-Chase Scene-
Urban foot chase turns into a parkour-inspired rooftop battle in an old worn down European warehouse setting. Music should be high-energy and outlaw inspired. Open to cross-genres and anything uniquely underground. Instrumentals or vocals.

-Safe House Reunion-
Lead character rescues the girl, now away from the danger of being chased, the two fall in love. Songs with vocals should be about feelings of vulnerability, letting your guard down, and embracing the moment. Instrumentals that capture the sentiment are also welcome from any genre that matches the emotional mood.

-Night Club Scene-
Crew spends the night on the town, feeling momentarily far from danger. Music should be high-energy Club Music, spun (in the scene) by the house DJ.
