Like this conversation involving two co-workers in "A Distraction Called Life". The stronger character in this scene is the one who is least confident. "If you exalt yourself you will be humbled..." -Jesus
Sure. I'ved used people for my own benefit, like Sean's character. I've also failed to stand up for myself, like Ehren's character.
That was a great post, and I decided not too long ago to try to make my first short a personal one. It will be very basic and crude I'm sure, but it's somewhat of a healing process for me. Having trouble finding instrumental music to use though. I'm sure that wont be my only issue however :)
Jon, my son, Lucas has some instrumental pieces he might let you use. Also, there's this site with all sorts of free music, some of it is pretty good: http://incompetech.com/m/c/royalty-free/
Lucas is a member of MAF.
Good luck with the short. Do you have a camera and other gear for it? I'm shooting a short for a friend soon if you would like to join us, probably in May.
Thanks for the link Les. I know exactly the type of music I'm looking for, just have not been able to find it. My gear was stolen, unfortunately, but I do have access to some through a friend who has been kind enough to let me use it. Then I have to learn out how to edit...etc.
Depending on the times in May I'd love to join you. April-June are our busiest times in the store, so sometimes it's hard to break away.
Thinking about it, since I'm not doing this certain project for ANY type of financial gain, does it even matter if I use a soundclip that is copyrighted?
Yeah, you probably should avoid something you don't have rights to, since you'll probably want to share it online. If its just for local use, screenings for friends, then its not really an issue.
