Soundtracks make stories come alive. They are how you craft the tone of a scene, shape the mood of your film and create something that resonates with your audience long after they've finished watching.
So, when choosing the perfect one for your film or content, where do you begin?
When selecting your soundtrack, ask yourself what emotion you want to provoke in your audience and how music enables you to achieve it. Or, as Hans Zimmer put it: "A great soundtrack is all about communicating with the audience, but we all try to bring something extra to the movie that is not entirely evident on screen."
While those words of wisdom are a great guiding principle — you're still left with the challenge of narrowing a single track when there are infinite choices.
Here we'll show you some easy ways to start whittling down your options, so you can select soundtracks that elevate your film.
