Recorded Video & Music Resources
The Episcopal Video Network has put together a stellar website that gives many tips, tools, and resources for putting together videos for your church. Please check them out at http://episcopalvideomini.wixsite.com/theguide.
FormaFilms.org: This is a joint project of Forma and with Missional Voices to encourage and inspire people to make and use video to tell their stories and extend the impact of their ministry.
Music for Multimedia Videos:
- https://licensing.jamendo.com/en/catalog: 200,000 royalty free tracks Music library for any project, all rights included.
https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music: The YouTube Audio Library provides free music for videos you create. Some of the music is licensed under Creative Commons and requires attribution, but much of it does not. Click on the particular audio track you’re interested in to get the full details.
http://freemusicarchive.org/curator/video: A royalty free music collection curated by the radio station WFMU, the Free Music Archive allows you to search by genre or by charts reflecting the site’s most popular music for the last week, month, or all time.
ccMixter: This site features original samples and a capella vocal tracks from musicians around the world, with a good sampling of free tracks for commercial use.
Incompetech: Incompetech offers thousands of musical sound effects and longer pieces of music by composer Kevin MacLeod, searchable by genre, feel, tempo, or length, or browsable in collections based on genre and mood.
Freesound.org: Free Sound includes a large collection of sound effects, including some licensed under CC0.
FreePD.com: This collection includes collected public domain music as well as more music and sounds from Kevin MacLeod, the composer behind Incompetech. The difference in MacLeod’s work here is that he has donated his work on this site to the public domain, so you don’t have to credit him in your video.
Musopen.org: Musopen is a collection of public domain music you can search by composer, performer, instrument, style, or century.
