Have you ever wanted to record or use a song but didn't know who to contact for the rights to distribute your copy on CD, stream it, or use it in a film? Not an easy thing to do.
The first step it to check with a mechanical licensing agency such as the Harry Fox Agency. A mechanical license is what you will need to distribute a copy of your song on a CD or stream. A syncronization license will be needed for TV or film. You may also need additional rights from the publisher.
Aislin answers my questions as we talk about her acting and performing career both deliberately and thoughtfully. Better
than you might expect from someone who is barely a teenager. You can tell she wants to get it right. Her poise is no surprise though
as she has been active as a performer since she was 3 years old. That builds character.|
The daughter of nature loving and artistic parents, her mother worked at a performing arts school for a time and her father is an art gallery owner in Asheville, North Carolina. She grew up surrounded by talent and enlightened minds. Not to mention the support she has received from her parents and mentors along the way. That can make a big difference in the formative years.
You can tell a lot about a person by the people they regard as role models. For Aislin it is Emma Watson for being a down to earth actor that uses her celebrity to bring attention to the causes she favors and Malala Yousafzai for her bravery in standing up for the right to go to school and get an education in a country where young girls are discouraged from doing so. A refreshing outlook for someone to aspire to.
