Below are several tools for getting your message out there.  Be sure to stay in control of the quality of your video, wherever it is being shown.

APM MUSIC:  https://www.apmmusic.com/

This is a Hollywood music library.  In order to work with this service, a producer needs to establish a relationship with them FIRST.  If the producer of your video wants to use APM music in a non-profit production, you can negotiate a special price. 

 

For a flat fee, as long as the video is under 15 minutes, I can use as many tracks from the library in my production as I want.  It can be displayed anywhere online, put on videos that are GIVEN away, and shown to private groups… forever.  If I want the video to play on TV, or to sell the DVD's, that will cost extra!!

 

Why go the extra mile to get access to this music? 

Because it’s better music.  In many cases it’s designed for storytelling, rather than being just a generic track it may have many versions and variations so you can create a musical theme throughout your video. Ask for Bruce Amdur.
