2019 ASCAP Screen Music Awards: Full Coverage

Michael Giacchino, Pinar Toprak, Pasek & Paul win big at star-studded celebration of the year's most successful music for screens

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

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