Using stock music for film.

Hi Guys,

I wanted to share a thought about using stock music for film. I've found it to be extremely useful so far, and have obtained several resources that have helped me everyday. I would love to get some incite on what everyone else is using and their process of finding it. Do you create your edit and find something that suites the work, or do you find music to inspire the edit? Maybe you're against stock music and think it's a waste of time? Nonetheless, I think it's a good resource to talk about!

I also created a video about the subject if anyone is interested!

Thanks in advance,

musicloops.com is my go to. Why? Because they don't put stupid restrictions on the use of the music like most others do. They also have thousands of cinematic and fantasy/historical music clips which is what I use a lot.

I like the music on http://www.freemusicpublicdomain.com/ It's all royalty free. You can license a song for commercial use for $25

Good discussion! I usually have both approaches: starting create edits, then looking for music and then selected music inspiring further edits or sometimes is even change all the video idea. :-)

My choice for music is http://tiny.cc/Royalty_Free_Music and latest video with using royalty free tracks is:
"Las Vegas - Night Strip Walk" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Y4R3A0nrh0
(btw here I spent just $62 for all 4 tracks licensing which is very good as per my opinion)

Best Regards,
Andrey

Hi Maxwell,
I use both methods first music then videos or first videos then music... It is 2 different ways to do it...
In general, I would say, the best is to start with what you are sure about and most of the time it is the video...
For Music I use www.be-tunes.com
There's music under Copyleft and it is totally Free!
The license is Creative Commons Attribution.
When I use the music I just need to quote the "Artist Name" and where it comes from "be-tunes.com" and that's it!
Cheers!
