There was a post here a couple of days ago on royalty free music which included Musicbed and Art-List. I didn't realize how cost ineffective Musicbed can be when on a budget.
The A-List is definitely easier on the pocket book, that stated, I found some stylish music on bandcamp at the price of a cd these days, in some cases, you can download the music for free with artist permission, but you really have to dig through categories/genres which can kink up your workflow.
Looked up "wagon wheel" effect, that makes sense. I figured digital vs film would have changed that effect, but it remains the same . . . still gotta lot to learn.
Another neat article on how to manipulate imagery (on-the-cheap) with a cautionary tale. You young ones are running circles around me and I am beginning to see the light through your examples.
There are people out there thinking about rotation rate, shutter speed, and frame rate to capture the illusion of a floating helicopter, that's impressive. Could one achieve the same effect by using a similar formula with car commercials e.g., the rotation spin on a tire rim?
Thanks for the great snap-shot overview.
Pros & cons:
I didn't realize that MusicBed was so expensive, but I do enjoy their cinematic section.
Premium Beat I like for the price and user-friendly setup, but after listening to forty or fifty of their songs I began to pick up on a pattern of similar sounds. Recently, I recognized a couple of their songs used in car commercials, maybe I visit that place too much. I think many here can connect on the workflow level being as smooth as possible.
Off I go now to check out Art-List
Have you tried MusicBed? They have a decent cinematic section. If you decide to ask them a question be very specific about your request.
The other day I asked MusicBed for some music with tubular bells (the new Scottrade finance commercial has tubular bells) and I failed to be very specific. They sent a bunch of links with Christmas bell music . . . epic fail on my part.
