Focusing on the accurate collection of rights from audiovisual and advertising broadcasts, Velvetica notably administers worldwide the repertoires of film production companies such as Pathé but also the catalogue of Europe’s leading telecommunications operator Orange.
Thanks to a proactive venture with sync boutique Creaminal, Velvetica is also active on the creative side getting substantial placements for the music publishers that we represent as administrator or sub-publisher.
Whenever we control the rights on a global scale, we optimize our missions through a network of 15 sub-publishers around the world.
We are active members of:

We wish a warm welcome to our new colleague Naomi within our team.

She will bring her skills and her international background within our copyright team with the aim of optimizing every process, from sub-publishing to tracking.

We are delighted to start representing Japanese publisher Pony Canyon.
We at Velvetica (Johanna, Benjamin, Thomas) have been very lucky in 2017 to get to promote the works of the talents brought by our publishing partners in the pop genre and we want to thank them all for this.
We thought the best homage we could pay would be to share with you a selection of music released by their artists this year.
We also want to thank the two interns that worked with us this year, Jérémy and Arthur.
