Composer Interviews


Are reinvestment deals a good thing?

We recently contacted our members to alert them of an increased number of 'reinvestment deals’ being offered to Australian screen composers. This came about after a number of you voiced concern over these deals. Our goal was to raise awareness of these deals among our members and alert you to the potential tax implications.

Well, Inside Film has noticed and has written an article on this subject with input from the AGSC and Antony Partos of Sonar Music. We thought you might be interested in reading and thank Antony and Sonar for their advocacy!
