If you’re racking your brains over music while finishing your film, here’s a recording of the lecture Music in Film / Copyright for you!
As a related event of My Street Films, the project partner hudebnibanka.cz gave a lecture on August 14, 2014 in AVOID Gallery. Music manager Jan Nedvěd was on the microphone, presenting the principles of legal use of music in film and the basics of copyright related to music. The lecture was followed by a lively debate and a public screening of selected films held right on Prague’s waterfront. My Street Films competitors have a chance to use the music from the extensive music bank in their films for free!
