Episode 21: Los Angeles Premiere of Hand-Cut

From the Dances With Films festival, inside the famous TCL Chinese Theatres, Griffin presents the Hollywood premiere of his film Hand-cut. Nick shares Apple’s updated computer lineup. Plus, your questions about using Creative Commons music, deep focus vs. infinity focus, and raising funds for your film.

 I used three  Pedco Ultra Clamps  for this podcast setup. One for the light, clamped to a chair. Clamped my shotgun mic TO the Zoom H5 recorder, which itself is clamped to the tripod.

Finding the Right Music
I frequently use these subscription libraries—Audio Network and Jingle Punks

But for free music, look for Creative Commons. Avoid “noncommercial” licenses for paid and monetized videos—I often use Creative Commons “attribution” licenses. Super prolific composer Kevin MacLeod is a popular choice among YouTubers.

And I really like Chris Zabriskie. I also search Free Music Archive.
