For the 6th time in a row, we’re happy to welcome to yet another round of Let’s Talk Sync – a true “must” for all who are working within the exciting world of sync.  This year we will be focusing on the Australian sync market, storytelling in music, the “knowledge gap” within sync – and finally we’re having our first pitch-session in front of a music supervisors-panel and audience.

How To Sync Down Under

For the second half of the talk Karl will provide an overview of DISCO, the sync pitching tool that was born out of 15 years of his company Level Two Music, music supervision workflow.
