Hi. I am writing a web series in which people audition for a show with different music theatre songs. They are only ver short excerpts, but I am not sure how video rights work or how to acquire them. Any advice or people to contact?

Thank you.

Thank you for your question! For individual rights to songs, the best place to start would be to contact ASCAP (1-800-505-4052) or BMI through their licensing inquiry form : https://www.bmi.com/licensing/contact

If you want to call BMI, here is a directory of their numbers for their different offices: https://www.bmi.com/about/entry/contact_us
