Music is a significant part of any television show or film. Production companies, who produce these audiovisual works, sometimes hire a composer to write the music, an artist to reproduce a previously existing song or seek the music rights to use an existing recording. This session will expressly look at the role Africa’s reservoir of musical talent can play in the fast-evolving, cross border, film, television, digital content production global ecosystem.
