ACM students helped to make the second London Sync Sessions, held at Metropolis Studios on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th September, a roaring success… and we couldn’t be more proud of their achievements.
The conference provided attendees from the wider music industry with an opportunity to engage in in-depth discussions about the role of synchronisation in the music industry, and ACM students both attended and helped to run the event. ACM@Metropolis student, Conan McDermott, who was a runner across the two days, said: “The event was really interesting, and everyone was very passionate, helpful and friendly. The whole operation ran smoothly and it was a pleasure to be a part of that. I hope to do it again!”
The London Sync Sessions saw a whole range of different music industry movers and shakers attend, including CEOs, publishers, record labels, film and TV producers, supervisors and composers, and ACM students attended some truly memorable industry panel sessions. Guest speakers included the BBC’s Head of Music Licensing, Nicky Bignell; Sony’s Director of Music for Film, TV, Advertising and Computer Games, Ian Neil; Red Bull Media House’s International Sync and Copyright Manager, Daniela Gassert; and a substantial number of Music Supervisors from a range of different areas within the music, TV and film industries. Music industry publication Music Week was also in attendance as the event’s official media outlet.
ACM students came away from the London Sync Session with not just an increased knowledge of all things sync-related, but those who helped out behind the scenes have also gained enviable real-world music industry experience of how music business events and conferences are run and organised.
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our guests, speakers and panelists for making the second London Sync Sessions such a success. We’re delighted that the event is fast becoming the most anticipated conference of the sync calendar. Here’s to next year!”
Rupert Hollier, Creative Director of Metropolis Publishing and Music Supervision
