Tips for using royalty-free music in films
In order to make the most out of this free music for movies, here are some pro tips that will help you out.
- It’s all in the sound editing. Invest some time into your sound editing. The right levels, sound effects, and mixing can make a free song sound like a million bucks.
- Always consider the intended effect. Whether you’re trying to make a funny scene funnier, a sad scene sadder, or add an unexpected twist by making a sad scene funny, always consider the intended emotional effect you want your scene to have on your audience when picking a song.
- Try other free stock resources. In the same way that you can use free stock music with nobody being able to tell, you can also smoothly incorporate stock footage using the right color grading and editing.
