We please to announce the launch of the Cinephonix Music Composer Deal Maker Helpline. We've launched this concept after feedback from our composers who said they really wanted help on closing deals from time to time.
We've all been in this situation. The phone call comes in. It's a job you really want. How do you play hard ball for a higher fee while at the same time expressing bags of enthusiasm for a job you'd kill to do? And what about buyouts, royalty shares, non proceed fees? Deal making is tricky, that's why people have agents. But then agents want a cut of everything you earn - even when the production calls you up direct - you can't choose to pay your agent on some jobs, but not on others. So, we launched the Composer Dealmaker Helpline. If you need some help negotiating on a new job, call us up, give us the details and we'll negotiate directly with the producers and get you the best deal possible. Sometimes having a representative close a deal for you can get you better terms and help you maintain a great creative relationship with your client.
How It Works:
It's simple and the choice to use us or not is always in your hands. Sometimes, getting a regular commission and doing a regular deal is easy. You can probably do 75% of deals on your own and you don't need to get help from anyone else. The Composer Dealmaker Helpline is for those 25% of jobs that are a little more tricky. Maybe you don't entirely trust the production company. Maybe it's a big deal and you want to make sure its the best deal you can get. In those cases, you can call us up and we'll work to close the deal on your behalf, leaving you to focus on the creative brief.
What Are The Costs:
We've kept the costs simple. We take a 15% commission on the fee you get for the job. If the value of the job is less that $1,500 or £1,000 we charge a flat fee of £200. The service isn't really designed for these smaller jobs and you can probably do them yourselves. But we'd be happy to help you out with one or two it you want. That's it. Simple. If the deal doesn't happen, you don't pay us a penny.
