Stupid copyrights

I figure since this blog has me making movies in its title, I should talk about making my movie some more. 

Well, I really really want this song in my movie. The song is all about death and love and heartbreak, which is exactly what my movie is about. Trust me, the song is 110% perfect for the movie. Preferably over the credits. But unfortunately, it's not really that easy. 

If I was just making it for shits and giggles and for my own personal use I could put the song on there as much as I wanted. But unfortunately, this movie is gonna be put in film festivals. And gonna be shown to all the people you're supposed to show stuff like that too. So there's a possibility we can make money off of the movie. 

And you can't just stick whatever songs you want in movies like that. I'm gonna do my best to be able to use it, but I'm not holding my breath.

  2. I know you will have to go to whoever owns rights to the song. Hopefully the group who sang it owns it but if a corporation owns it good luck for getting it cheap.

  6. Tim Ferris noted how hard it was to add a song to his trailer for the 4 Hour Body. He said while he loved the song it isn't worth the hassle.

  7. Hope you get to use the song in your movie. It sucks that there are copyrights but I suppose the other end needs to get protected as well. D:

  13. Eh, I think you could spend more time looking around for an indie band that would actually WANT their music to be in a movie, they get promotion and you don't have to deal with as much issues.
