Topic: Music question

Author: Heather Hughes Posted: 04/21/08 12:17 AM

I'm thinking of producing a film that would have an amazing soundtrack. Are there any books out there that would educate me with regard to maximizing sales (for a small indie film)? I am completely ignorant in this area.

Thanks in advance,

Heather

Are you talking about sales for the CD that you would sell with the DVD? This is something that I've wanted to do, also.

I want to record an original score and make the CD available apart from the film as well as with it.

Paula, is that the route you're talking about too?

Yes.

Paula,

Have you investigated this at all yet? I've just begun, but am having fun learning about something completely new.

I've done some "investigating."

Since it is next to impossible to get already produced music I am going with having local people perform. This is a much easier (and cheaper) route. There are lots of talented people out there and if you can catch them on their way up,.... Mechanical rights are cheaper than sync rights,...

I'm not sure what questions you have.

For a Website that has all the information you need, and a wownderful interactive Forum, look up "Just Plain Folks". http://www.JPFolks.com

For Indie Music distribution, "CDBaby" is the grandaddy of 'em all & still the best.

Save yourself a lot of time & check 'em out.

Best wishes.
