More music for your movies

Music can make all the difference to a movie - as we always say, movies are an audio-visual medium!  Well-chosen music can often convey mood far more effectively than visuals or words ever can.

We’ve added three new packs of royalty-free music to the Music and Sound section of the Marketplace, created by Soundfactor Music Productions.  That’s 161 atmospheric and evocative tracks, suitable for everything from dark and dangerous scenes to pounding chases, tranquil woodland, or reflective introspection.  Most tracks are one to three minutes long, ideal for credits sequences or a typical scene. Whatever type of movie you’re making, there’s bound to be something in this collection that meets your needs.


Music packs are 2000 points each for subscribers - buy a three-month sub for $19.99 (£12.99 or €16.99) and you’ll start off with enough points to get one pack absolutely free.  You can buy extra points for $9.99 (£5.99 / €6.99) per 1000 - and they get cheaper if you buy 10,000 or more at a time - so each additional pack works out at under $20.  (Or take a year’s sub for $80, and you’ll have enough points to get all three packs and still have enough left over for something else.)

For non-subscribers, the music packs cost $29.99 each (£19.99 / €24.99).

Exotic moods

Add a touch of drama, mystery, and nostalgia with these electronic and orchestral sounds. A simple sequence of still or slowly panning images, combined with evocative music, can set the tone of a scene in seconds without the need for complicated exposition or story.  This wide-ranging collection evokes everything from sunny Mediterranean hillsides to majestic Oriental splendor, sultry Mexican passion, and wistful nostalgia.

Slow it down and get mellow with these relaxing tracks. Long movie scenes with nothing happening can get boring quite quickly. Gentle music can completely change that, transforming a slow sequence into a gentle dreamlike moment that inspires the audience and gives them a chance to reflect on what has happened and what is going to happen.  This collection of mellow electronica and jazz gives you everything you need to create those quiet magical moments that stay in the mind long after the movie’s over.
