Atlantic Screen's Star Role
31st October 2016
Tim Hollier, creative director of The Atlantic Screen group of companies, is a strong believer in the 'small and independent is beautiful' ethos. For him, processing data through automated systems is one thing, which he does through Copyright Administration Services, but sometimes, nothing replaces human intervention, especially in his area of expertise. His boutique company specialises in music for films and in chasing the royalties resulting from the exploitation of music in the movies.
Based in Pewsey, Wiltshire (and with an office in Los Angeles) Atlantic Screen is involved in about three movies a month and has grown into the second largest commissioner and financier of film music in the independent American and British sector, according to Hollier.
"I have been in the business for 50 years and I am a commissioning publisher", he says proudly. But for Hollier, being creative is useless if, at the other end, royalties are not collected. "I think our skill in collecting and registering film music is second to none", he says. "Our staff have as much expertise as any of the majors in registering, assessing, collecting film music royalties, for that is what we have specialised in since I founded Copyright Administration Services 10 years ago".
One of the strengths of Atlantic Screen, says Hollier, is that it operates in the main territories without sub-publishers, having preferred to register directly with performance rights societies. "We are direct members of most societies in the world which means that our clients' royalties come directly into the UK without sitting in a sub-publisher's account", he explains. "A cue sheet is not an individual IPI number; it is made up of tens of individual titles. Often titles used on soundtrack releases are different from the same track featured on the cue sheet. This therefore requires copyright people to have hands-on knowledge. The computers can be wrong, they often are".
