Moby relaunches free film music site
Musician Moby has relaunched his free music resource for independent filmmakers, Mobygratis.
The site includes an extensive archive of free tracks for use by non-profit, student and indie filmmakers. The music includes Moby’s own unreleased music and remixes.
The revamped site also includes a community area for the 150,000 registered users in 212 different countries.
If a film project using the tracks becomes profitable, Moby’s licence fee is donated to animal charity the Humane Society.
Filmmaker Lucy Walker said: “I love Mobygratis! It provides a fantastic resource for independent and not-for-profit filmmakers. The music for a movie is the most vital, integral part of a film’s mood, emotion, and impact, but a decent soundtrack can often end up being unaffordable by anyone except big budget studio films. It’s amazing that Moby has created this archive of fantastic, soundtrack-suitable film for filmmakers to use completely for free. If a project becomes commercially successful then Moby’s preferred charity just benefits too, so it’s a win-win great project all round.”
