In my previous post, I listed some genres and video styles where I could utilize and edit the stock-footage I have in different ways. Some acquaintances of mine added to the list “Travel Channel-reality-tv-style opener” and “News show opener”.
Can you think of any others? Here’s a link to the list I’ve already created.
Now, considering music and sound is half of your picture, I scoured the web looking for that perfect sound. I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, but I did find the Free Music Archive. They have a ton of songs separated into different genres and I stumbled upon a category called Old-Time/Historic. It has a great jazzy/ragtime collection. Then it hit me! I can’t believe I didn’t think of this sooner!…
I could use this boogie-woogie, ragtime-y music with my modern footage and create a video with an old film look and feature another video genre! Perfect! There’s this tutorial on Creative Cow that explains what to do perfectly!
