Music supervisor to head company's Nashville branch

L.A.-based music supervision firm Format Entertainment has brought Anastasia Brown onboard to head its Nashville office.

Brown, said to be the only music supervisor based in Music City, has worked on such features as “August Rush,” “Road to Nowhere,” “It’s Complicated,” “Billy: The Early Years” and “Daltry Calhoun.” She also worked on the miniseries “Taken.” She served as a celebrity judge on USA’s “Nashville Star.”

Format, which also has an office in New York, supervised music on such features as both installments of “Iron Man,” “Sex and the City” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks” as well as “The Blindside” and “Swingers.” Company is also active in music production and soundtracks.

Brown’s first task with Format will be joining the company’s consultation and supervision work on Paramount’s “Footloose” remake, she said.

“Whether it be supervision, consultation, artist representation or raising film financing for music-driven films, I’m committed to taking everything to the pinnacle,” Brown told Daily Variety. “I believe Nashville will be the true third coast within the next few years.”
