This pre-cleared music licensing and score production explains how music supervisors, editors, and media producers can find influential music for their productions, quickly get licenses, and reduce sound production costs. Movies and TV shows are being produced in less time with lower budgets which requires faster ways to find and license music and song score production. Finding the songs with right genre, mood, tempo, and emotional influence can be time consuming. After finding good music candidates, getting clearance licenses can involve multiple negotiations. The budgets are are also decreasing requiring lower licensing costs. To solve this challenge, Crumbs Music Media has created a pre-cleared music licensing service along with tools to help find existing songs and produce custom scores at lower costs.
