No matter what kind of films you make, you need great background music, sound effects, foley sound, and more.
If you’re doing action, you will need great gun shot sounds. Machine gun sounds, pistol sounds, shotgun sounds, are all essential, but not easy to find.
Drama and Horror films just do not work, without music. This video will give you a few sound and music source ideas for your next film.

WHY USE PAID SOUND EFFECTS & MUSIC?
Why use paid resources when you can find great free sound effects and music?
Here are 4 good reasons:
1: Sound Quality
Professionally crafted film scores and sound effects usually sound much bigger and better than the audio that people make available online for free.
Searching through free resources online can be very, very time consuming. Having a few dedicated film score and sound effect packs at your disposal makes this process much faster and for me, being always short on time, that’s definitely worth the money.
It can be hard to prove that you have the right to use some music or some audio file you downloaded for free from some website that may no longer even exist. By purchasing your music and your sound effects you get a receipt and a license with your name that you can use to easily prove without doubt that you have the legal rights to use these sounds.
A lot of great paid sound and music packs available are now well within the affordable range for low budget film makers like myself and there are some really great options out there that I highly recommend you check out.
