I have a client who wants a specific song featured in a locally run commercial. I'm doubtful that they have the money to license it, but they want to know price anyway.
A Google search turns up several outfits that specialize in music supervision and rights clearance, but I was curious if anyone here had any experience with a specific company that they would recommend.
I don't know if you received an answer to your rights/ music problem, but I wanted to suggest a music licensing firm here in Montreal - they specialize in that sort of thing, and do alot of great indie placement. Indie, as in, the artist owns the music, so you don't have to go through 8 lawyers and 6 months to clear your rights;
