      Hiya, I’ve recently completed training in film score techniques and looking for some experience and to put a portfolio together. I’ve a lot of experience with composing and music production and can be very versatile with style. I’ve put a little site together here http://neonmonkeystudios.com where you can hear some examples of my stuff. Please contact me at russwook@hotmail.com or through the site if your interested.

      Also I’ve released an instrumental album under the name Bang Ce Soir which you can use for free for any project you have, the music varies from being quite intense to very chilled and might give a good insight into some other flavours I can cover too, just download them here at http://snd.sc/mzU69n but please give me a credit on the film and let me have access to a copy when it’s finished.

      Cheers

      Russ

      OK, I have a question that may be irrelevant. I do know that using someone else’s music in a video is pirating but by all the hub bub about using it on, say, a couples wedding video. Is it because it may be seen by another couple that may turn us in or what. I do not shoot wedding videos or anything like that but this question has been bugging me. I only use work that has been authored by an accredited agency but, I am just curious.

      The conflict is that you profit partly because of someone else’s work. Music will make or break a video. So I can see why it’s a big deal.

      I reckon a wedding video would come under ‘Acceptable use’, and it’s not like you’d be profiting from it. I think if someone turned you in they would probably get ignored. Not 100% what the law is though. If it became a commercial success they may be someone tapping you on the shoulder for their share. πŸ™‚

      I suppose it’s just like inviting people round for a party and playing some cd’s all night. In both situations your broadcasting someone elses music to a large group of people.

      Two things I do know

      1) Using copyrighted music in any way (including wedding videos) without proper licensing is just about always running afoul of the DMCA and could get you into hot water legally.

      2) I have not personally known anyone (videograher/editor/producer) to get sued because they used any musical piece in any wedding video.

      I am not a lawyer and do not play one on TV – If you are truly concerned or want a legal opinion, please consult with an intellectual property attorney. All comments are my opinion only – Your mileage may vary.

      As said before. It is illegal, but they give out awards to people who do it all the time.

      Hi All,

      I don’t personally know of anyone who has gotten sued for using “pirated” music in wedding videos, but here is a different problem. If you try to post a video with pirated music on YouTube, they sometimes catch it and refuse to post the video. This happened to me and I had to go back and change the music to be “YouTube acceptable.”
