This is for anyone involved in the Post Production process. I trust it will prove to be useful information. Would you make a film using entirely stock footage? I didn't think so... There is no such thing as "Royalty Free Music". Music that sees broadcast earns royalties paid by the broadcasting entities (Network/Syndicated, etc) via ASCAP, BMI or SESAC who then distributes the income generated by royalties to their affiliated writer's and publishers. This is at NO cost to the production company or anyone involved within the production company. "Royalty Free Music" is often no more than just a marketing tool to draw you in thinking you can save those last few, precious dollars in your budget OR a sign that the person offering "Royalty Free Music" isn't quite aware of what they are purporting to offer. "Royalty Free Music" sites GENERALLY (but not always) offer substandard production value and dated material that can cheapen your production. Distributors can hear it a mile away and remember your distributor is your first audience and your audience ABSOLUTELY comes first! Cheers! Now get back to locking your film!
