PREP IN PRE-PRODUCTION
There are numerous songs in public domain and certain songs that you can pay someone to use in your story, though it’s really advertising their music. Speaking of this, if any of you have song writing skills, INCLUDE YOUR SONGS, AFTER GETTING THEM COPYRIGHTED (U.S. Copyrighting Office) AND REGISTERED (BMI/ASCAP), THEN FEEL FREE TO USE THEM IN THE STORY. Not only could it move the audience in the emotional way you want them to, this can also rake up sales in the music stores, etc. for you. If you have this additional talent, go ahead and use it, too! This way, you will not have to pay others to use their songs AND you can make additional funds from CD cells of your own work. Or, if you have other music artist whom you know who are quite talented and creative, cool stuff! I've come across individuals, from Pre-production to Post-Production or from Above-the-line to Below-the-line who have musical skills and can include them. Just ask. You may never know what genius you have around you if you do not ask. The powers that be will discuss if they foresee any type of particular songs in the story. What type of FEEL is brought about in certain portions of scenes that will generate an effect, a response, a move in the audience. You are prepping the audience for this in what you play or don't play during the numerous scenes with the appropriate intensities in the story.
