Requesting music

Recommended Posts

My youtube channel is based on cinematics and server trailers etc. Meaning I need music. The right music, which I'm struggling to find alone.

 

This trailer is a war trailer. I need music that starts off slow and subtle and then suddenly changes the tempo and bass making it much more powerful. I intend to purchase the music (if it isn't free) and in no way do I intend to break copyright laws on the music. If it helps, here is the trailer script:

 

A man in civilian clothing running through the war torn streets (first person). Heavy breathing to add effect. A quick cut to a camera view following the movements of the man.

 

*Crossfade*

 

First person. High ranking swat officer and the rest of his squad in the back of an armoured swat vehicle. Gives the squad a mission briefing. As the briefing continues (SOUND ONLY), the video cuts to the civilian being surrounded by armed soldiers. Helicopters and armoured vehicles around them for a better atmosphere.

 

*BANG*

*Cut to darkness*

*Silence and darkness for 2-4 seconds*

*BANG*

*Music tempo and bass increases*

 

Soldier helicopters and cars travelling along the same route. Camera view. Front view. Vehicles pass the camera. Camera follows until field of view ends.

 

 

The rest is a secret :P

 

Hopefully you guys can help me out, if not, I'll resort to using one of the pieces I found :)

Okay, how about "O Fortuna" by Carl Orff. Being Classical, there may not be any copy issues at all. Same with Richard Wagner. Both of these composers have dark, moody and war-like tones. My opinion. :cool:

Perhaps I should have mentioned, I wanted something more modern. The songs you mentioned are great songs but for the theme I want, not so fitting. Thank you for your reply either way :)

Have you completed (part of) the video without it yet? I think it would be easier for us to think if we saw the content of the video.

I've done the first part, yes. I'm not currently on my laptop right now so I can't share it with you. I will do so when I get home.

I went ahead and made a different cinematic and am keeping the one I spoke about for another time. The music I used was "Ash - The Secession Studios." I'd be happy to link you guys the video, but I'm unsure if posting it here would count as advertising, I don't want to break the code of conduct. If I can't, I'd be happy to send the link through a private message to those who wish to see it :)

Not at all - and for several reasons. Firstly you're not creating a thread purely for purposes for advertising. And secondly, it's relevant to the help thread. It's also not advertising a website or product, which is the main rule.

I never did get any feedback on the video, perhaps I should've asked :P what do you guys think? Does the music fit in with the theme well? Let me know :)

Actually, it's NOT bad at all. I'd leave the music your using. I liked the music when your Air Cav Squadron was deploying over the city (or town). Kinda reminded me of some places I've been to when I was "in Service". It's good as it is (my opinion). :D :D :D

Thank you @Crusader1307 I really appreciate the feedback. It's difficult to get any sort of comment on my content due to being a very small channel. It's nice knowing what's good and what's not! :)

 

when I was "in Service"

 

Is that a literal sentence or was it relating to something else? Were you part of the military?

Pardon me, I got distracted for a few days. Silly exams. :(

 

I finally watched the video, and I liked it a lot! Keep up the good work. :) Also, did you get a bunch of friends together to "act" it out, or did you use the editor to give the AI commands which you filmed?

To answer your earlier question, .........

Yes, I was in the US Army for 8 years (Small Weapons Specialist). My rank was Sergeant (among my many talents!) ;)

I added scripts to the AI to make them move and behave differently based on the situation :)
