Music Supervisor & Music Editors
Carmen's essential contribution to a production is her encyclopaedic knowledge of commercial music and creativity in placing it. Her extensive network of industry connections ensures the correct licensing and negotiation of all clearances and sync fees.
With credits in feature film and multi-ep. high-end tv drama series, Carmen's remit is ever-evolving and consequently she now also embraces playing either a lead or support role in the composer selection and contracting process if required.
Whether working with commercial tracks, source music or a bespoke score, music editors Clare Batterton and BAFTA winning Rodney Berling both have an intuitively fastidious approach to their work.
As 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.
Lesley established UK Film Music in 2019 following many years representing & managing prominent and award-winning composers from the UK and mainland Europe. With a career in international marketing and the Visual Arts, Lesley brings a refreshingly different approach to composer management.

Assistant composer agent Mo Buckley consumes too much TV, box sets and feature films. It was her fascination and love for Toast of London directed by Michael Cumming and starring Matt Berry, that led her to seek opportunities in talent management. Mo is a natural persuader and networker who brings a great deal of enthusiasm and energy to UK Film Music.
