Ciara is a music supervisor who works across both creative research and source music clearance. She joined the Air-Edel team in 2015 and was quickly inducted into the world of sync, assisting on projects such as Channel 4/Netflix’s doo-wop heavy ‘The End of the Fucking World’ and the John Hughes-inspired ‘Sex Education’, both of which have enjoyed considerable praise for their use of music, with numerous tracks being featured on The Hollywood Reporter’s Billboard Top TV Chart. She also worked on Ricky Gervais’s highly successful ‘Afterlife’.
With credits on over 150 episodes of television and numerous films, Ciara enjoys an excellent working relationship with an extensive roster of labels, publishers and managers as well as possessing finely tuned(!) research skills. In 2017, she music supervised Channel 4’s 90s’ banger-centric ‘Derry Girls’, and the following year, the Simon Pegg exec-produced comedy horror ‘Slaughterhouse Rulez’ for Sony Pictures.
More recently, Ciara has worked on the latest feature from documentary-making heavyweight Julien Temple, ‘Ibiza: The silent movie’, alongside music director Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim). She has also supervised the latest comedy from Merman Productions, ‘This Way Up’ – the script-writing debut from Irish comedian Aisling Bea, also starring Sharon Hogan.
Ciara is comfortable working at all stages of a production, from providing advice at script stages to pre-records and on-set supervision, to post-picture-lock copyright clearances. She is currently working on a new series for Netflix with Academy Award-winning production company Grain Media.
