Get Music for Free

Music is one of the most important aspects of a movie. If you know what you are doing, you can get great music for free. Sometimes you can even get someone else to pay the artists who provide it!

You’d be amazed at how much the music that you don’t even consciously notice can make a huge difference in how you are affected by the visuals of a movie. We subconsciously rely on the cues music gives us to know how to react. Different music can make the same video clip seem alternately uplifting, sad, calm, or heart-poundingly scary. Most horror movies even over-rely on music…you know when someone’s gonna get butchered when the music gets really spooky.

This is one reason The Blair Witch Project was so groundbreaking. Oh sure, everyone talked about the low budget and record-high box office return, but not many people talked about the fact that there is no music in this very scary horror movie! Okay, there was one song, but it’s what they’re listening to in the car on the way out the woods.
