ASCAP Composers Dominate 2019 World Soundtrack Awards

Marco Beltrami, Michael Abels, Nicholas Britell, John Powell & more honored at one of the world's most prestigious celebrations of film music

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.
