And I’m still up, waiting for a video to upload to Youtube while browsing for potential trailer music to use for one of my IEM videos.
Of the ones I’ve listened to tonight there was one particular composer who stood out – and for good reason. They actually do this for TV and movies and the like. Welp! I probably can’t ask to borrow their work for a Youtube clip then.
My next options – and what I should have gone to first – are my go to Royalty-Free-Music on Youtube and various other websites. Using these songs ensures the videos I put up later, and potentially want to monetise, won’t be shut down by an irate musician/composer who believes I’ve stolen their work. Fair enough!
In addition to framing in my head the potential scenes to be shot, choosing a song is the most important first step. I do all my editing to the song, so picking one that helps me tell the story is quite essential. I have to be mindful of its length versus how much footage I hope to get, its beginning, middle, end. Does it build up slowly and end with a bang? Or is it red hot the whole way through with no real deviation?
Late night musings. Or should I say, early morning musings.
