Make a better home video
This blog is about new paperless reading materials like downloadable audio books, ebooks, and online magazines, made available to you through the Appleton Public Library. I plan to provide helpful tips on using these new products, along with reviews of audio books, music on cd, and movies on DVD and Blu-ray. There may even be an occasional post on genealogy. The library is changing as rapidly as your access to media and the Internet. We want to keep on top of the trends and bring you information and entertainment in a way that fits your life today. -Diana
You have plenty of footage from holiday parties and family get-togethers; maybe even a family wedding. As you begin to splice scenes together on your home computer to form a video, you realize that you could use background music to bind together different events or as a background for credits.
There are plenty of things available on the web, but if you are looking for royalty free, copyright safe music to add to your video, check out Soundzabound. This music library contains a wide variety of music, audio clips and sound effects.
Search by type of music or sound, or by length of clip, to find great audio for your projects. The clips are perfect for business presentations, school projects, digital storytelling, animation, gaming and web design. If you are unfamiliar with how to use sound clips, there are links to tutorials available on the main Soundzabound page.
This great resource is available for free, through Badgerlink, using your Appleton Public Library card.
To access, go to www.apl.org, choose eLibrary, then Badgerlink. Soundzabound is number 42 on the list. This will allow you access to thousands of sound clips to use for your next project!
