SCORING FOR VIDEOS AND TRAILERS

 

Nightengale Media creates video and trailer music at reasonable rates and within reasonable timelines for completion. Whether the  video or trailer requires a song with lyrics or only an instrumental background, we will work closely with and for you, the videographer/producer, to bring your video or trailer to life.

 

Like commercials, videos and trailers often tell short stories in increments of 1-minute to 5-minute lengths. The music may weave in and out during the video or trailer message, or it may support the visuals throughout. Some videos and trailers are supported by musical background, and others are supported by a musical theme that runs beneath the message voice-over. The variety in musical presentation is endless, given the relatively short time a video runs. Some are long enough for a full song, others benefit most from instrumental scores. But in all cases, music is essential to an effective video or trailer every time.

Videos for all seasons: 

Commemorative videos (as for weddings, anniversaries, celebrations of life, retirements etc...) are very popular. We work closely with the videographer to create the perfect musical setting in these videos.

Small Business videos (as for product promotional videos, website music, tradeshow marketing etc...) are useful and can generate sales of product and services offered by any small business.

Film and Book trailers are useful to film makers and authors alike in promoting their works to the general public.

 

WHAT'S INCLUDED

One video OR trailer, whether to commemorate life events, to promote a novel or a movie, or tell the world about a small business, designed to function as an effective tool in marketing virtually everything.  The visual is supported by a musical theme that runs beneath the message voice-over. We will also provide front and back bumpers as well as clips of 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds and 60 seconds. Pricing varies slightly according to the length of the video. A final mix synced to the video from 1 minute to 5 minutes or longer.

Audio files of all music in Mp3. ACC and Mp4 formats which may be copied as many times as needed. 

Copyright remains with Nightengale Media LLC however, the client has full permission to use it indefinitely. Details negotiated before project begins.

 

THE PROCESS

Project Interview with essential members of the client's creative team to keep the creative process on track with their expectations and to learn what message the video/trailer's music needs to convey, as well as the client's taste in music and vision for the project before we begin.

DEMO PHASE Listening Sessions occurring as the project moves forward. First, with the piano version of the music as it is created. Once the client listens and approves (or makes helpful suggestions about the sample version), we return to the studio to make any necessary changes. Then the client listens to the sample version once again. This process is applied to the video/trailer music until the demo phase music is approved.

ORCHESTRATION PHASE Listening Sessions occur after the initial orchestration is made for the video/trailer music. The client may request minor changes at this point. If need be, we go back into the studio to make the changes, and then the final listening session for the video/trailer music occurs. Then the final mix of all the music synced to the video is made and a master version is provided to the client.

 

WHY WE DO THINGS THIS WAY

We believe the client videographer/producer of the video or trailer is best suited to inspire the composer, allowing the composer to write effective music for the visual. The composer's job is multi-faceted, and the intent and the vision of the client are helpful to the composer as the music is created. Our process allows for an on-going interaction between the client and the composer to best serve the creative process and the to provide the best music possible for your project.

 

The scope of each project

(budget, time required to score the video/trailer, changes editing, etc...)

determines the cost of our services.

We'll settle these requirements together before starting the project.
