Having served as a TV Commercial Composer for over 25 years, Chris Bell has a solid base of established relationships with many Advertising Creative VP's and Producers.
We have recently placed original music on multiple spots for Toyota, McDonalds, Hyundai, Oberto Foods, WalMart (instore), UCLA and Red Stripe Beer. Our music selections are sent on a flash drive directly to the Ad Agency Creative VP's, Broadcast Producers and Editors in over 100 top Ad agencies as well as Fox Network and over 50 high end freelance TV Commercial Editors.
If you have unique, NON VOCAL, decently produced, (NOT music library sounding tracks)... We want to hear them. If we like your style, we will send you Chris Bell's personal email address so you can submit as much material as you have available.
We are not here to make money from your submission fees, but we do need them to keep the quality up. Once we see you are a talented composer we deal directly with you. We are looking for odd, interesting, fun and funny tracks that develop quickly. "Outa the Box". A nice build is good. Ending on a positive is great. PLEASE NO LONG REPETITIVE tracks, or songs that just have the vocals removed. They must evolve nicely in 30, 60, 120, seconds. Unfortunately there is NOT a big market for epic orchestral music so please do not submit. There IS a big market for all genres that are hip, edgy, positive, uplifting, quirky, dumb (or dumber) fun and funny music. Real instruments are a definite plus!
Please have a clear representation of ownership of your tracks. ALL composers involved must sign a release to include your music in presentations before we present. We split all proceeds 50/50 with our composers. This means you typically make from $250 to $5000 or more per placement depending on the use. You also receive a copy of the spot for your reel. If you are selected, you also have direct access to Chris Bell for valuable mentoring, production and career advice pertaining to your composing.
