Two great options that are fairly affordable would be the Canon 6D and the Sony A7 or A7II. To my knowledge those are the most affordable full-frame options besides a used Canon 5D MkII.
Very interesting. I have wondered the same. Craig, if the songs are imitating the original is that a legal gray area? Or how do the laws fit in with that? If it is a green light that sounds like a great solution.
Thanks Frederick, the content is excellent. I have just downloaded my first clip. Thanks for sharing it so generously with us all. I would love to hear the long story behind it!
Thanks for the great post Zachary, I am often in that position where I need to find a piece for free and this is very helpful. I hadn't thought of using SoundCloud. I have a couple to add also:
Moby Gratis (http://www.mobygratis.com/catalog) I have had a lot of success with this site. It is Moby's back catalogue that is available free of cost for Non-Profits/Short Films. You do have to submit a request to use it, but it has been quick and painless in my experience. He tends to have a great array of options.
Free Stock Music (http://www.freestockmusic.com/) Completely free, large group of subscribers and users.
Youtube Audio Library (https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music) Some songs are completely free, others require advertisements to be played.
Vimeo Music Store (https://vimeo.com/musicstore) Contains some tracks that are creative commons, and many that are for purchase.
Nicks, that is fantastic. Maybe I will have to get a pinterest after all.
Thanks for the link.
P.S. Einar, I am glad to see the international side of NFS growing. It's great to see talent around the world and I look forward to meeting and working with people from all corners of the earth.
