I will remember Bodaf Malaga 2013 mostly because of Fran Montoro. It’s actually interesting, because I was one of the speaker on the conference as photographer, but Fran Montoro touched by his presentation and speech one of the things that I had inside of me. The music. The sound. And the personal connection with whole sound in the filmmaking and cinematography. Of course only a few will be as gifted as Fran to sit with friends and write down and record music for the movie. For the very fast and short edits like 1-2 minutes I use Garageband, but this is just fast attempt to have background that just flow.
The minor of videography is in my opinion lack of respect of music copyrights. Most of videographers just take piece of music from the internet and put it as soundtrack to their i.e. wedding movie. In best point they put down the copyrights written, however it’s not the same to have rights to use someone’s work inside our work, as all wedding movies are commercial based. Someone is paid. Publishing wedding movie with soundtrack we have no licence to use is violation of copyrights. Just try to be fair, 50 USD for the licence is not that much. Below a few resources to find and buy licence for use music inside the movie. I will be updating this post with new links if I will find something.
