    I'm trying to make a "60's style sex-ed"-esque commercial and had a few questions.

    I'm using iMovie, and so far everything is black and white and has the aged film look, but I'm looking for suggestions on music and where I could get the music (hopefully for free).

    Also, i'm looking for a countdown time reel clip (4, 3, 2, 1) and was wondering where i might find one - also free preferably.

    Thanks!

    archive.org has a lot of the actual movies and you are allowed to download and use them. You might try just using the real thing! :)

    well, it's not actually a sex-ed commercial, it's a 1 minute commercial about racism...school makes us do some lame stuff so i wanted to at least add a little creativity to the mix.

    thanks for the suggestion, i'll check it out

    feel free to post any more =]

    Try the "Lunch Break" track from the Moody Blues' Days of Future Passed. I always thought it belonged in one of those edjumakashunul films.

    Here's your resource

    I use www.freeplaymusic.com whenever I am creating a video with my students. Great content broken down into 10, 20 30 60 1:00 and full length increments. Easily searchable. Completely free to use and no copyright restrictions.

    Have fun.:)

    Here's my final result...

    You Tube

    I filmed it in about 5 minutes and the kids in it wanted to go eat lunch so it was a bit of a rush job. Some of the sound is low in spots, but I worked with what I had - my Mac pretty much dominated every other person's video.

    The assignment was to make a short video showing racism so of course everyone went buck wild and had a good time with it.

    Criticism is always accepted =]
