Bringing the Dead to Life: The Music of Coco

ASCAP members Germaine Franco and Adrian Molina collaborated on the vibrant, authentic songs to Pixar's Day of the Dead-themed animated film Coco. Here's how they did it.

Building a Music Community

Community is implicit in the creative process. But how do you find and sustain a nurturing musical community? We asked LA composer collective The Echo Society how they've done it.

Attending Sundance in support of three unique films from visionary directors was an experience beyond my wildest dreams. I especially appreciated the support and enthusiasm from my friends at ASCAP, who created a place for musicians from around the world to connect with narrative filmmakers in search of their skills.

How to get paid for music in film, TV & visual media

Cue Sheet Corner: If your music is used in a film or TV show, cue sheets are essential to getting paid. Here's everything you need to know about them.

Ad & Promo: Was your music used in a commercial, trailer, infomercial, promo spot or PSA? Here’s how to get your ASCAP royalties.

Payment System: We process hundreds of billions of performances of ASCAP music each year. So how do we track it all and get you paid?

The folks at ASCAP….have done so much to help me that I can barely even begin to describe it all. I've always relied on their input and guidance.
