Their role is pivotal in enhancing the overall audiovisual experience by choosing music that complements the narrative, mood, and atmosphere of the content.

Key responsibilities of a music supervisor include:

Music Selection

They create cue sheets that detail all the music used in a production. These sheets are essential for royalty payments to artists and copyright holders.

Budget Management

They work within the project’s budget to secure the rights to music. This often involves finding cost-effective options while maintaining the desired quality.


Music supervisors collaborate closely with directors, producers, and other creative professionals to align the music with the artistic vision of the project.

Soundtrack Creation
