Reviews"Music Rights Unveiled is essential reading for anyone looking to educate themselves on the use of music—both original and licensed—in contemporary film, television and media. The book's plainspoken, practical advice on everything from hiring a composer to navigating the thicket of music licensing, is both relentlessly up-to-date as well as grounded in fascinating historical context." —Scott Macaulay, Editor-in-Chief, Filmmaker Magazine "This book is the go-to guide for learning how to license music for your film – highly-recommended for those filmmakers trying to figure out the complexities of music licensing and content use. Brooke knows more about licensing music than anyone I know in the business. I would never make a film without her help, and now you can learn all her licensing secrets yourself in her new guidebook." —Jennifer Fox, Sundance Grand Prize Winner and Emmy-nominated Director/Producer: The Tale (2018), My Reincarnation (2011), Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman (2006), An American Love Story (1999), Beirut: The Last Home Movie (1987) "Music Rights Unveiled is an invaluable, must-read book for all film and media producers. Brooke and Maryam write from the richness of their experience. By removing the veil on the changing landscape of rights clearances, they have provided a direct pipeline to the practical knowledge and best resources that your project needs." —Lisa Cortés, Award-winning producer, Founder & CEO of Cortés Films
