How to Utilize Music for Your Movie

People are finding more and more creative ways to improve their storytelling in movies, and music is one of those ways. Whether it’s incredible soundtracks emphasizing powerful moments, or even editing to the beat of the music. But what about not using any music at all? Editor Elísabet Ronaldsdóttir edited an entire 12 minute sequence in Atomic Blonde without any music.

Youtuber This Guy Edits wanted to see if he could re-edit the scene with music to try and improve it. His three rules are to use any music, not change the edit at all, and definitely not make it suck. The end result is quite good!

“I really believe there is music in the editing itself. And if you get the editing correct, you can put any music to it and it’s gonna work.”

It’s incredible how the use of music can aid in storytelling. Whether it’s letting the music drive the scene completely, or not using any music at all, give this video a watch. And keep your eyes peeled for more sequences in popular movies that use music in incredible ways.
