    The rights for music to put in your movie...

    I live in Adelaide, South Australia and from the same state comes the band Hilltop Hoods, I personally think they are one the best sounding bands to came from Australia recently (And that IS saying something-Since I usually avoid rap music - period) I heard their most recent album called The hard road: restrung, In which they remixed older songs with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, And I thought That it would be the perfect cinema music for any movie lucky enough to have its rights.

    Now my Question...Does anyone know how much It costs to get ahold of the rights of a song for your movie?

    I'm just mainly curious,
    and I know that chances are that I will never be able to afford it, but maybe I might just be able to...Sometime in the future...I can always dream... (sigh)

    Thank You.

    acctuly it might be cheaper then you think. You have to go to there Record Company and ask them for the rights. They will ask what you are using it for. BE HONEST. they will project howmany will see the film, and go from there. If the band is not on a label, go to them directly, alot of times they will let you use it for little to nothing! just to get their name out there.


    It never hurts to ask.....especialy if it is the "perfect song" for a scene

    Have you ever heard of them Kawsakimx6?, your american and I don't know if they have made it that far. I know I'm going a bit off subject, but, they are Really good! You should get ahold of some of their music, Its Bloody Amazing (especially The hard road: Restrung).

    Thanks for the reply.

    "The Hard Road restrung"
    and
    "The Captured Vibe restrung"

    were the ones that my original question was referring to.

    Glad you like them!

    Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance...

    I just got started on this claymation short with a friend which we just got started on. Its mostly Pre-production at the moment but -- Talk about busy!

    Did you listen to the whole album?

    Thought I'd pop a mention in for The Beat Suite Symphonic Orchestra which we sell, at beatsuite.com - might be worth checking out our music for an afforadable project.
