Film, TV music supervisor speaks at Loyola forum

October 25, 2013

Jonathan Christiansen, a Los Angeles-based music supervisor, has worked on more than 400 episodes of primetime network television and seven major motion pictures, including the trailer for Louisiana-shot “Django Unchained.” On Monday, Oct. 28 at 5 p.m., he will discuss his successful career in the music and film industry at a Loyola University New Orleans forum. In addition to his personal examples, Christiansen’s presentation will include samples of students' music in order to demonstrate potential placement in film or television.

The forum is free, open to the public and set for Nunemaker Auditorium in Monroe Hall. The event is part of the student-organized “Get Inforumed” series, a weekly forum throughout the academic year featuring experienced music professionals from across the industry.

As a music supervisor at Hit the Ground Running and Pusher, Christiansen combines extensive music expertise and a sophisticated knowledge of licensing and negotiation to propose songs to film, advertising and television directors. He then serves as a liaison between the creative and business divisions.

Christiansen has helped create and license music for major movie trailers, including “The Hunger Games,” “Transformers,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Django Unchained,” among many others. His current projects include the hit television series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” on CBS, “Nikita” on The CW and “Power” on Starz. He is also an accomplished DJ, spinning at clubs, film premieres and corporate parties across the country.
