Good music for a time lapse of animals on a trail? on 03/11/2014 11:43:54 MDT Print View

Now that I picked a computer, got a DVD burner, found the right software and...backed up my pictures...I am working on a couple of time lapse videos. Two of my trail cameras have stayed at the same location for four months now and I have accumulated hundreds of photos of wildlife passing by, day and night. I have been using Imovie to stitch the pictures together and adjust the duration of each frame, between .5 and 1.5 seconds, depending on the shot.
Can you suggest some music that might work well with my project? One video should end up being fifteen minutes and the other one about a half an hour. The photos are of cats ( mountain lions, bobcats and a couple of me) foxes, deer, skunks, a couple of squirrels, a couple of rabbits, a mouse or two, some quail, jays etc.

I recommend that you do a Google search for "Incompetech royalty free".

There are many music pieces available there, and they are royalty free. Without music being royalty free, you might be in violation of the copyright laws if you use it.

You never know.

A year from now you may have sold your video rights to the Purina company for them to sell cat food or something. It is nice if the original work is completely legal from the get-go.

Incompetech royalty free music is free. If nothing else, that is a good place to start. I've listened to some of that music for hours and hours.
