The Music Documentary Challenge: Keeping the Peace Between Producers, Estate Stakeholders & Commissioners: A MIPCOM Webinar with Peter Worsley

Peter Worsley is a veteran documentary and concert film producer and distributor.

He gave a standing-room only presentation at last month’s MIPCOM on the subject of Music documentary production in the age of Taylor Swift.

The focus was balancing the integrity of the production with the interests of the Label, Music, Publisher, Artist Management and Broadcaster.

I produced and moderated the MIPCOM session, and we set about capturing Peter’s valuable knowledge in this webinar.
