cdbaby has added a way to make your music available to filmmakers. Has anyone had any experience working with filmmakers in this way?
If you don't know about cdbaby I highly recommend it, it's a nice easy way to get distribution online (iTunes, Rhapsody, and Amazon to name a few) with no crappy reoccurring fees.
I digress, as far as music for film goes. I think that the benefits from the increased exposure far outweighs the initial monetary benefit. For 3 reasons:
- You have someone else pouring money into promotion of the end product.
- The listeners are much less likely to get distracted and ignore your music.
- When someone buys the soundtrack, you get to be bundled in (see: more free exposure)
PS - does anyone know if there are musicians who specifically write songs on each album with film in mind?
