North Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
New York’s production music rebels, VideoHelper, have signed an exclusive representation agreement with Megatrax Brasil, the Brazilian branch of Megatrax Production Music. This landmark union of two of the top independent production music companies based in the US will serve the Brazilian market with a broader variety of cues and promos for broadcast and beyond.
Say Joe Saba and Stewart Winter, co-founders of VideoHelper: "We are excited to partner with Megatrax in Brazil. They have a great team in place, and we are confident that this unique marriage of catalogs combined with their experience will create all kinds of new opportunities.”
Phil Macko, SVP of Sales for Megatrax, adds: “This is truly an exciting time for both companies! VideoHelper has had my respect for years due to their quality and business integrity, so I was quite excited when our talks began at NAB 2011. Representing VideoHelper in Brazil will serve to further solidify our strong reputation for quality amongst our loyal Brazilian client base, and is a key component of our growth strategy in this important territory. Look out world, two of the largest Independents are joining forces!”
The people behind VideoHelper pride themselves on creating music “designed specifically to knock people out of their media-induced stupors and … into paying attention – while also providing music that is uniquely formatted to help the producer/editor. Because we write our music as producers, not just as musicians, our library contains features that we, as producers, always wanted in production music. Features that will make your life in the edit room easier and your work different from everything else out there.”
