1. Search the internet for local movie studios. Find out what projects they are working on, who is in charge of the music and see if you can meet them. Face to face meetings are best and will give you the best chance of having them use your music. Do internet searches using your city’s name and keywords such as “film production”, “indie moves”, “production companies”, “music wanted”, etc. You’ll be surprised at how many film associations are close by, both in your nearest major city and also within your state.
2. Find out what film festivals are playing in your area. Go to them and introduce yourself to the filmmakers. Find out if they have any projects they are working on currently that they need music for. If not, get their contact information and call them up in a few months to see if anything has developed.
3. Call up your local ad agencies and see if they need any music for local commercials. TV and radio stations also might be a good source as they often make their own commercials. Who knows, you may even be asked to write a jingle for a local business for a few hundred bucks. I met a guy who did this who told me he got $700 for writing a jingle for a local auto shop. Not bad!
4. Listen to locally produced commercials. If they use similar music to yours contact the company, ask them who produces their commercials, then contact whoever produces their commercials and ask to be kept in mind in the future. Tell them that you heard their commercial for X and noticed the background music was similar to yours and you thought it might be a good fit for future commercials. Then see if they’d be willing to take a listen.
