Clearly, music is a key element of storytelling in films. However, few indie productions have the budget to score (and record) an original soundtrack. Licensing existing music is a cheaper, but less flexible option – it is usually hard to match it to the edit. Fortunately, technology brings new options.
I can’t compose music myself, and I could not afford to hire someone for my short “Legend Of The Bar”. Still, I ended up with a great score. Here’s how I did it.
So, I scored the film using Filmstro.
Since releasing my short film, Filmstro reached out to me and offered a 20% discount on the annual subscription using code: TOMANTOS18_ANN
I also use Artlist for music. You can get two free months if you go here.
