Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding music to enhance the video project, part of Creative DSLR Video Techniques.
…>> This is my favorite part of the editing process, adding the music.…Now, sometimes you start with the music and you edit to that.…Obviously, I didn't need to do that here.…I really needed to get the story in place.…And there's nothing in the story that was going to be cut to the music.…I am using music in this case truly as underscoring.…It is there to reinforce the emotional content that I am going for.…But it's also there to help motivate some of the edits.…So, I am going…to actually have this piece scored.…I'm going to hire someone to create some custom music for me.…
But I still want to know kind of what it's going to…feel like with the musical ideas that I've got in my head.…So I'm just going to use some scratch audio.…Some audio that won't go into the final piece, so I don't have to…worry about whether I have the rights to it and that kind of thing.…That will let me get a sense of whether the music…does provide the reinforcement that I think some of my edits need.…It'll give…me a chance to see if music does add that…
