Filmmaking & Videography Music Licensing & Copyright

Falling in love with a track that you can’t license is a heartbreaking phenomenon that all filmmakers and creators have experienced. Whether you’ve heard a song and built a scene around it, or stumbled across the perfect track that is unattainable, we know the struggle. That’s why we’ve partnered up with cinematographer and YouTuber Rob Ellis to talk about the issue of Temp Love, and how you can find similar tracks to your reference track within minutes with Audiosocket. Who knows, there might even be a discount code in it for you!

Audiosocket x Rob Ellis: What Is Temp Love In Filmmaking?

Before we jump into Rob’s video, let’s talk about Temp Love!

Temp Love is essentially temporary music that creators, filmmakers and editors use when creating videos. When working on videos, creators usually includes a placeholder track to edit to. This often has to be replaced as it was too difficult or costly to secure the license. Temp Love refers to the temporary attachment that creators have to music that they practice with, edit to or temporarily add in that they then can’t use in the final product. Picture it: you’ve edited your video. The music has the exact feel you envisioned, and highlights poignant moments just perfectly… but the track is a huge commercial track that you have no chance of licensing. What do you do now?

Enter Rob Ellis to explain more!
