When do you add music?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious as to other designers process, especially when it comes to adding music. At what point do you add music to your comps? Do you usually have a song picked out before you start anything? Or is it more of an after thought? Do you collaborate with a sound designer?

For myself, I find importing music helps get me started. But depending on the project I might just add something in last minute. Of course adding to the complication is working with budget and getting permissions. For my personal reel though, picking the music was an interesting exercise I did early on which heavily influenced me. I wonder in what situations you would just start making something without any music, really.

When you do have a song, what do you do next? I usually listen to the song on loop, adding markers, taking notes on things I think are important. What's your process?

I try and be in charge of the music , I usually have a theme for my animation and pick a music to go with that . Iblock my animation then pick the song and start fine tuning my animation to match any hits , bursts , stretching , etc .. in the music but to start with I have a clear vision of how the piece will look , is it Grandiose ? Is it fast ? Is it funky ? etc .. all can help you pick the music
