Carmen Montanez-Callan

London based Carmen provides music and score supervision, commercial music searches, licensing, clearance, fee negotiation and consultancy services across Film and Television. She has been specialising in music supervision for Film & Television since 2014, having enjoyed 15+ years success in placing music to picture across Film, TV, Advertising and Music Video. Her hands-on background in Production and the Music Industry provides a full working knowledge and in-depth understanding which places her in a unique position as a highly sought-after Music Supervisor.

Recent projects include tv drama series BRITANNIA for Amazon, OUR GIRL for BBC Drama and feature film WILDFIRE (Dir. Cathy Brady). Her work on BAFTA and RTS award-winning dramas including MURDERED FOR BEING DIFFERENT (Dir. Paul Andrew Williams) and DON'T TAKE MY BABY (Dir. Ben Anthony) earned her a nomination for Best Music Supervisor at the Music Week Sync Awards .

Carmen is a member of the UK & European Guild of Music Supervisors.

Music Editing

Whether working with commercial tracks, source music or a bespoke score, UK music editors Clare Batterton and BAFTA winning Rod Berling both boast an intuitively fastidious and highly creative approach to their work. Clare is currently working on the forth series of tv Netflix drama series TOP BOY and multi-ep period drama BRIDGERTON and Rodney is working on Netflix series BEHIND HER EYES for Left Bank Pictures.

Copenhagen-based music editor and co-composer Keld Haaning Ibsen works with many of the Nordic's finest composers including UKFM's Jacob Groth and Halfdan E, providing an established, 1st class Scandinavian 'music department'. Keld's tv drama credits include the second season of BELOW THE SURFACE, crime thriller CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE starring Josefin Asplund and worked alongside Frans Bak delivering the score for the UK's DOCTOR FOSTER.

Amazing music editors, they operate as the technical and creative liaison between the producer and composer. With creative nous, extraordinary technical know-how, natural musicianship and the ability to seemingly never sleep, the music editor is a vital member of any production team's music department.
