Recent projects executed by the team include handling music supervision for LOV3, which recently premiered on Amazon Prime and Back to 15 for Netflix.
“Big Sync has been a trusted conduit for music and brands for many years, and I’m looking forward to further expanding their presence in the LATAM region with the creative and talented team we have in place,” says Portaro. “I aim to elevate the brand by leveraging my network and working directly with labels and publishers.”

“Although Big Sync was originally established in the UK, our global presence has grown substantially over the years, and we have already worked on several notable campaigns for Unilever and other brands out of Brazil, Argentina, and beyond,” says Dominic Caisley, CEO of Big Sync Music.
“With more and more brands, agencies, TV and film companies asking us to help with their projects form that region, it’s a natural progression for us to build out a larger dedicated team to service those opportunities. As Big Sync continues to make long-form and short-form content in LATAM a focus for 2022, Patricia and Javier’s roles will be invaluable to building that portfolio.”
