    Video background music

    Hi Guys,

    I have been given a task to make a "day in the life video" of one of my primary schools.

    Its only going to be about 10-15min filled with video clips that im recording next week.

    Any ideas for back ground tracks i could use?

    Cheers

    Cooper

    Got be Pink Floyd "Another brick in the wall"

    Remember you can't just take commercially available music and use that, especially if you plan to sell the end result.

    Cheers

    Its only for internal use and to be shown a couple of times.

    Looking through my music collection i have found a few tracks on a mos chillout album that could do the trick.

    Röyksopp being one of them.

    It depends a lot on the "shape" of your film and the "feel" of the school. If it starts frenetic, and winds down after lunch, then so should the music. And other arty-farty thoughts...

    Do you have a school song? You could record the children singing it and use that.

    A few more substantive ideas:-

    My daughter's primary school used "Fields Of Gold" for their leavers' evening. Evocative of time passing.


    "Meet On The Ledge"
    Fairport Convention, another 'time passing us by'
    song. Same daughter and I were somewhere in the audience...

    "Time", Pink Floyd. If that is Earls Court, I was there too!

    "Schools Out" Alice Cooper - Need I say more? That was the year I left Elementary School in the States. Brings back a few memories.
