Music in films: budget is continuing

Music plays an important role to make the best effect for films. When using music in a film, part of the budget should be set aside for owning the music rights.

For example, in a film, if using all a composed song, it can come down. But if it’s all major copyrights, it can go up officially.

Other budget should be paid for kind of films. If it is a blockbuster, the cost for music can go down to 2 or 3%. But if it is a film with medium budget, using big songs can be paid up because the copyright owner can consider that their songs has more valuable than this film. Furthermore, a film can’t use only a song. There are a lot of combination and they can’t be integral to overall a story.

In general, cost of each song in film can determine wildly in other cases depending on other factors and requirements. Depending on purpose of film makers, they will have policy to use tracks properly whether this film goes with mainly profit or not.

The fact that a film maker can’t have list tracks as they expect because they want it. All works should be respected, especially the right of author. Therefore, the rule applies that you want a list soundtrack as your expectation, you have to pay cost for it. You also remember that some major copyrights are strictly rationed to remain their real value. So when you have money, you can’t use a list soundtrack if not you comply the international rule.

Another regulation in using tracks in films is that film maker sells distribution rights for a new nation. He sells total concept of this film so it means you also have to pay an additional music fee. Note it and not miss for a commercial transaction to avoid breaking the rule.
