hello everyone, i have got into an arguement with one of my friends about the music at the end of each of my videos, here they are, watch them and answer the question below







QUESTION:
Does the music at the end ruin the effect of the film? Should i use sound effects at the end (when the credits screen comes up) or should i use different versions of that song i use?
help please, thank you every one, if you can come up with a good sujestion that i end up using, you will be in the next credits!
(@ hitfilm, i hope all those links won't annoy you!) ;)

    I think the music is fine. I don't see why it would hurt.

    I say leave it. It's up beat but I don't think it detracts from the overall feel of the video. In fact, if I didn't hear it for a hundred years and then heard it, the first thing I would think is Froi productions and Charlie. Besides, there have been plenty of movies that have music at the end that have nothing to do with the movie, how is this any different? As to using different versions of the music, it is said, variety is the spice of life!

    Have you named the blonde guy? To me he looks like a Petey or Peter. I don't know why. :-?

    I'm also thinking about using different versions of the song, like an acoustic version, you recon it's a good idea?

    Nah, just keep it as it is, I think you should tell your friend how many dedicated community fans are loving your vids the way they are. Or of course just throw him under a bus... @-)

    No, keep it, but it's a little narrow, musically. It needs something, but I don't know what. It's good though.:)
    P.S. Some of your dialog was subpar. Sounded like the gain was too high during recording.

    Yeah!
    Did you make that? How did you do it? MiDi?
    "Charlie Bites #5" is good! Great job.

    Hey Froi, seems you're busy at the moment but look for my PM. You need a good free sound engineer, like ME! :)
    P.S. I'm remastering Charlie5 right now to full epic cinematic glory, then your "FroiSound".
    Peace, Out.

    Hello, all, sorry for late reply, I am gunna keep the music, and I am using classical ones in the latest ones I have made (exploding lights are thing duel lol) yeah the sound isn't too good but I don't have a good mic but I getting rode video mic soon with new camera. I would say yes I would like you as a sound engineer but I have a friend who owns a sound business with amazing equipment that I will use for my skyrim video (made with real people and hopefully amazing sound and VFX)
    And I am looking forward to see what u have done with charle bites episode 5, I'll need to watch it again as I forgot which one ep 5 is haha
    Thanks all! ;)

    Think everyone is right, keep the music. Man you have more patience than me doing stop motion filming. I think it would make me pull my hair out if I had any B-) . Like the videos, keep the creative juices flowing....

    Yes stop motion is unbelievably anoying, especially when my camera doesn't focus properly, or the Lego people don't stay in the right position! Lol. But I will soon stop my stopmotion and go to proper short films :)
