100% Free and Legal music to use in your film!
Looking for free and legal music for your film? Here are some fantastic resources I have gathered to finding great music to use in projects!
Some Soundcloud users will let you use their music in your projects for free! When searching, choose "tracks" and then choose "To modify commercially" Just be sure the song is not a cover!
Free Music Archive (http://freemusicarchive.org)
This is one of the best resources I have found, just be sure to specify your search to "Allows for use in remix or video" AND "Allows for commercial use" or just do "Public Domain," which is always best.
Go to search, select "Music, Arts and Culture" under Audio. Then when you find something you like just be sure to check for Public Domain or Creative Commons licensing!
Musopen is a great resource if you are looking for classical pieces, just be sure to check the exact license on the piece you like before using it. You may also want to get a subscription to have access to higher quality recordings, although that does cost a little but of money.
