Welcome to Splitsville, USA – Where Co-Writers Live Together in Harmony

In Splitsville, songwriting splits are like people. Some live alone (100%), some live together as couples (50%-50%), some are in a threesome (33.33%, 33.33%, 33.34%), and some live happily together in groups of four, five or more. As songs are co-written with an increasing number of contributors, it is more important than ever that co-writers amicably agree on splits – in writing – that add up to exactly 100%, and share accurate publishing info with each other. Without working this out early in the creative process, bad title registrations and disputes can end important creative relationships and wreak havoc on a global scale, causing songwriters to lose royalties for years. By learning how to make some simple, positive changes to our creative business practices, songwriters can create a world of good – for ourselves, our families, our community, our industry, and billions of music lovers.

Inside the 30th Annual ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop

Go behind the scenes of our 30th annual ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop, held throughout the summer of 2018 in Los Angeles. Featured speakers include composers Benjamin Wallfisch and Matthew Margeson, who spoke to this year’s class at the renowned Remote Control Studios in Santa Monica; you’ll also see clips of the culminating event, a live recording session with a 64-piece orchestra.

ASCAP’s annual Film Scoring Workshop offers a one-of-a-kind experience for aspiring composers of film, TV and other visual media. During this month-long, immersive program, 12 participants from around the world will learn about the business of film music from “A list” Hollywood studio executives, agents, attorneys and music supervisors. It culminates when each aspiring composer has the opportunity to record their original score for a major motion picture scene using the same tools as a world-class composer: a 64-piece orchestra at the historic Newman Scoring Stage at FOX Studios, joined by a legendary scoring mixer, music editors, copyists and professional composers acting as mentors.

The Workshop is led by Emmy Award-winning composer and ASCAP Board member Richard Bellis, and produced by ASCAP Film/TV membership executives Michael Todd and Jennifer Harmon. Participants are chosen from more than 300 applicants by a team of 20 professional composers. The Workshop is generously supported by The ASCAP Foundation Irving Caesar Fund.
