Filmstro & cinema5D “Music Month” – Learn About Music for Film & Win Prizes

We’re happy to announce that today, we are launching a month-long collaboration with our friends from Filmstro, “Music Month”. Music Month is a 3-part video series teaching you about the relationship between Music and Film. Filmstro is a brilliant piece of software that makes scoring for movies easy. We’ve used Filmstro on my rhino preservation documentary “Through the Thick” (watch here) earlier this year.

Watch the first episode below!!

Film Scoring Competition

Please head over to Filmstro.com for details on how to enter the competition. Using the Filmstro app, you will be able to score one of 5 pieces of sample footage. The submissions will be reviewed by a jury and the best submissions will win the following prizes:

  • RØDE Boompole Pro, SM4-R, NTG4+ and Newsshooter Kit
  • Zhiyun-Tech Crane-M Camera Stabiliser Gimbal
  • Zacuto $650 Gift voucher
  • 10 FilmConvert licenses
  • 4 x $250 bundles from Mister Horse
  • 10 Filmstro For-Profit Licenses

All the details on the Filmstro page!

Music Month Episode 1 – Seeing Music

And now without further ado, please join Seb Jaeger from Filmstro and me for the first episode of “Music Month”. We sit and analyse the fundamental building blocks of music: momentum, depth and power. Using example scenes from famous movies such as Harry Potter, Transformers, Star Wars and many more, we dissect how these building blocks work and how they interact.

Join us and enjoy!

On next week’s episode, we will put into practise what we learned today, and score footage using these three musical elements.

I just have to publish the link of the video on Twitter with the text? Until when can I post it? I have doubt questions, can I insert some voice over? Can I edit parts of the video? Or the video has to be exactly as it’s for download? Thanks!

Hi there,

Yes, just paste the pre-written text as a twitter post including a link to your video. You can insert some voiceover. However, we’ll be listening to the way you have used Filmstro Pro to score your film. Please keep the footage as it is. Hope this helps and good luck :D

Thank you so much for this. One thing that a lot of new video editors have trouble with is the choice of music for their videos to help tell their story. I shared the video link with a small community of consumer editors. I know this will help them in improving their understanding to music and how important it really is.
Again, thanks so much! Looking forward for the next video!
