WHERE CAN I GET MY MUSIC AND SOUND FROM ?
MUSIC LIBRARIES ?
There are a whole host of ready made sources of music and sounds. But there are not exclusively sold. So the same tune could end up being used on many many soundtracks and other media including commercials and TV productions. Furthermore, these will only supply you with 3 or 4 version of the same tune, nit enough for an entire film or TV production, and it will not possible to change or adapt these sources. So you will probably have to adapt your film or TV production to fit the music, potentially making your project clumsy and difficult to make the story work for the audience.
COMPOSE IT YOURSELF ?
With the advent of powerful computers, software and effects, it is becoming cheaper to write and produce your own compositions. But whilst this provides greater accessibility to the raw sounds and instruments, and easier ways to lay down your creation, there is still a lot of detailed and often frustrating / time consuming work required, to get the mix right, to keep the entire score up to a standard that provides for good quality composition, continuity, audio detail, and of course mixes well with the final edit and vocal dubbing. This can be quite an art, and will still take around 4 to 12 dedicated weeks to complete and then edit in with your production's editor and director.
HIRE AN ORCHESTRA ?
Great idea. So you have deep pockets and plenty of time on your side? True to say that many block buster productions do make use of a full orchestra, but the road to the final score is long and often frustrating. Hiring and working with a talented orchestra is usually done at the end of the production, when everything else is done, including the final draft of the edit in post-production.
