‘The Character of Music’ at Comic-Con 2013
BMI and White Bear PR to Present ‘The Character of Music’ Panel Discussion at San Diego Comic-Con 2013
Have you ever ‘watched’ a movie or television show that you have seen many times without actually looking at the screen? Did know exactly what was happing simply from the music? I find myself doing this more and more after having attended The Character of Music panel at San Diego Comic-Con the past few years. Prior to that I didn’t quite take the music for granted, but I didn’t really pay attention to how much it can enhance what you are watching when done well. And how much it can spoil the show when done poorly. It doesn’t hurt that panels have always been enlightening, entertaining and intriguing. I have had no regrets and highly recommend this panel.
WHO: Broadcast Music Inc.® (BMI®), a global leader in music rights management, and White Bear PR will return to 2013 Comic-Con to present a dynamic panel discussion about the working relationship between film composer and executive director.

WHY: The highest-rated series and specials on television feature the scores of BMI composers, who craft the theme and/or background music for nearly three-quarters of all primetime network programs. BMI’s composers, such as the legendary John Williams, also contribute to billions of dollars in box office receipts, with film scores in many of the year’s top films. Promoting the role of music in film, BMI partners with the Sundance Film Festival and other industry workshops to enhance the role of music in film and television.
