Uncategorized Mar 10, 2021

Imagine your favorite television show or movie without background music. How different would the tone or mood of specific scenes be if they didn’t have any? Whether it’s a romantic, comedic, action or horror film, music helps to create the overall tone of motion pictures.

Music is a powerful tool that can influence the way people feel when they’re watching a video. Using music in your videos is a great way to evoke emotion and send a specific message to your audience. It also helps keep the audience engaged throughout your entire video, it makes it more exciting to the viewer!

Here are some tips for adding background music to your videos:

Match the Mood

Make sure the music you pick matches the mood of the video. Music can help create the energy of a moment, so you want to make sure you pick something that matches the initial tone of your video. For example, say that you are creating a video as a Veteran’s Day tribute. You don’t want the music to be super upbeat and happy since the topic is about Veterans. Instead choose music that has more of a serious and emotional feel.

Keep the Volume Subtle

When you use music in your videos and you’re talking, you want to make sure to lower the volume of the background music. You don’t want the music to overpower your voice. You are sharing important information so you want to make sure that your viewers hear what you have to say!
