Music Supervisor Selena Arizanovic

Rambo, The Expendables, Conan The Barbarian. You’d be expect an equally massively built-person featured on these Blockbusters to select the music for them. But you’d be wrong – it’s petite, salsa-dancing Selena Arizanovic from Nu Image Film & Millennium Films. And no doubt, the music she selects certainly is epic all by itself.

  • How to network yourself into the industry the right way
  • How to pitch music to her
  • A “typical” work-week that is anything but typical
  • Music trends in film & TV and much, much more…

  1. My background is this:
    I played violin in two Broadway shows, and played extensively in a number of classical and commercial venues in NYC over about 30 years. I have composed over 300 songs, available notated and in recordings, none ever published. I believe some have commercial value. A number have been copyrighted.
