Hidden Pond Productions works hand in hand with our clients. We start from the very early planning stages of finding just the right creative solution for their project, company or brand; advise and manage all aspects of the music supervision, licensing or rights clearance process (or provide original music) and finally deliver fully executed agreements.
We take great pride in our long-term industry contacts, creative and business savvy, unique negotiating skills and high level of professionalism and passion for what we do. All of these elements combine to provide our clients with unparalleled service, quick replies and highly cost-effective solutions for all of their music supervision, talent acquisition, rights clearance and original music needs.
We also regularly consult with a variety of clients on any number of rights clearance and music industry related issues and topics.
Please contact us today about any potential projects you are considering. We’ll be happy to discuss them with you and give you an idea of what’s involved as well as a sense of ballpark costs.
