    Pricing Help

    Ok, so, I'm reletivly new to the business so help me out. Heres what someone I know sent me:

    I will need a 4 min hip-hop score for a video that I am working on. It can be a simulation of some of the hip-hop hits (remix or whatever) but can not contain any original artist music. This is for a professional dance studio, and must be free and clear of royalties and lawsuits.

    Can you tell me what would you charge me for that and can you give me a short sample of something like that?

    I was wondering

    on average, how much would something like that go for?

    help me out

    what do u think I, a new person into the business, charge?

    I'm in Orange County, near LA, so, is pricing different from region to region?

    Any input appreciated

    I don't see why they can't just either pay royalties or get permission from the owner of the resale rights...

    Try http://www.productiontrax.com. Shameless plug, but still. There are also plenty of other places to go for hip hop music that's rights-cleared.

    You can also produce your own - or hire a music production company or composer (like One Light Music -- sorry, another shameless plug) and have them sign a waiver or licensing contract that allows you to distribute how you need.

    The main thing here is that music takes time and skill to produce, so don't short change your composers. Prices for custom music vary from composer to composer, and on the terms of the deal.
