Free online service matches music with films
Sony BMG’s Commercial Music Group has launched a Web-based service for filmmakers and music supervisors that provides assistance in selecting music for visual media.
Titled MovieTunes, and unveiled during the Toronto Film Festival, the site allows filmmakers to submit specific criteria pertaining to music needs. From there, a Sony BMG musicologist helps the filmmaker navigate through the 2 million-plus recordings in the company’s archive. The service is free.
