North Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2011
Megatrax Production Music, the leading independent production music source for film, broadcast, advertising and multimedia, made a splash at the National Association of Broadcasters Show last week in Las Vegas, toasting their 20th Anniversary with champagne and comments from toastmasters and founders Ron Mendelsohn and JC Dwyer. The company also unveiled their new “sizzle reel” and the winners of their client video contest at Monday’s special in-booth party.
Emcee for the Anniversary toast, VP of Sales Phil Macko, says: “It was a remarkable success, made possible by the support of our clients and valued partners. The highlight of the day for me was sharing the stage with one of our video contest winners - Myron Gigger from Radio One Atlanta – as it reminded me of the amazing creative talents within our client base. Here’s to another 20 years!”
The Megatrax Sizzle Reel, which highlights many of the company’s notable music placements from recent years, is now available on their YouTube channel at http://www.YouTube.com/MegatraxMusic.
Also available on the YouTube channel are the two winning entries to the company’s Anniversary video contest in which clients submitted creative videos using Megatrax tunes. The two winners, Gigger and Tim Burt, both shone a humorous light on using Megatrax’s music in radio promos and production.
