Recreational videography

Hello filmmaking community!

How many recreational videographers are here?

By recreational I mean just starting out, doing if for fun and that kind of videographers

Let's chat and share experiences, the voyage is awesome but the struggle is real

Yeah well, money is always welcome!

What do you think is the hardest part of it all?

For me it's finding good music. And I don't mean where but finding the right track for the overall vibe I want to transfer to the viewer.

Any tips on that?

It's just LOTS and LOTS of listening. Also, a bit of formal music knowledge (history, appreciation, etc.) will be an asset. There is also whether you are using copyrighted works (as many YouTubers do) or looking for "new" "original" tracks; your search parameters will be different.

When I wear my music supervisors hat I first look for well known tracks that work (or temp music that has already been supplied by the client), then start in on similar sounding music my clients can afford - there are many indie music sites where bands will let you use their material for just credit(s) and, sometimes, a small fee. As you are a hobbyist this doesn't completely apply to you, but most definitely should be kept in mind.

Have Fun, and Good Luck!!!

Wel... Im also a DJ as a hobby. If I have a event or person I try to capture the feeling of the vibe of that person in music.
Like this edit. For this person I get this funky, fun and ritmic feeling. So I look for music that captures that. Its a bit of trial and error.



For Marth Kinder I get this feeling of dreams from her performances but she also feels very grounded and adventures in how she presented herself. I slowt the music down 10% to match the feeling of her performance and how she is.



Kevin Macleod made a fun side with good stuff to work with.

Yeah, I guess there isn't a shortcut to getting some good tunes, lots of listening and searching can't be avoided

Thanks!
