Are you having trouble finding the right sound to go with your new moving picture? Can’t afford a fancy orchestra? Or even a high school composer? Don’t have the time to waste before you miss an online contest deadline? Well, than you can thank Peter John Ross of Sonnyboo Productions.

He went ahead and made 20 pieces of music that he is offering to the public to use that are royalty free. Unlike most sites that offer royalty free music, Mr. Ross is completely cool with you using the music on films that you are trying to sell and make a profit on.

The catch? Absolutely none. All that he asks in return is that you credit him (which I know you would have done anyway). All of his tunes are instrumental, so you don’t have to worry about cutting around lyrics, and he offers a wide variety of sounds; from an “Ultimate 80’s Anthem”, to “Jazz”, “Techno”, “Soul” and downright “Eerie”. There is something for every genre in the 20 songs. Worse comes to worse, you can start cutting the different songs together or you can use them as a base and add your own beats (from Garage Band or a similar program) over them to create something new.

You can get the free beats here, and view Peter John Ross’ films here.

Reading screenplays before or after viewing a film can teach you a lot of about how a film changes and develops throughout production. It is also a lot of fun to find missing things and figuring out if you should blame the writer or director for particular scenes. One of the best sources for screenplays on the web is Drew’s Script-O-Rama.

Script-O-Rama is a collection of links to film, TV and anime scripts from across the web. The site is a direct path to hundreds of scripts. A lot of the films featured have multiple drafts and there are even completely unproduced screenplays (wanna read Michael Chabon’s Spiderman 2, or how about two different rejected Freddy vs Jason scripts? How do these stack up against the one the studio finally settled on?).

You can check out Drew’s here.
