AJ Video Services and AudioMicro Music – A Winning Combination

We get a lot of great stories from users about how our services played a key part in their success.  In Carlstadt, New Jersey, AJ Video Services recently used five of our royalty free tracks for a client’s election campaign video. All three men who participated in the video were elected.  Each of the three men credited the video as “the video that won the campaign.”

The video begins with the story of Carstadt’s humble beginnings, and is accompanied by the track “Piano, Old Mexican Style,” which really brings the visual and narrative together.  As the narrative transitions to the present, the track “Dare to Dream” begins to play as it presents all the wonderful progress the city of Carlstadt has made and the beautiful small-town-feel it has preserved.

The next sequence cues the danger-infused track “Deadline,” as it warns how Carlstadt’s beauty is being threatened by the proposal of massive new housing, accommodating for 20,000 new people that would be built on Carlstadt’s coveted meadowlands.  Will Roseman, the mayor who is running for reelection, speaks about his commitment to preserving the beauty of Carlstadt and its natural surroundings while “Deadline” fades out.

Next up in the soundtrack is the inspirational “Shades of Blue”, which progressively builds momentum as city councilman Dennis Ritchie expresses his commitment to the hard work and pride he takes in maintaining the integrity of the city’s financial structure.

Transitioning into “Business World”, the video and music work together to strike an inspiring and triumphant chord as Council Candidate Jim Lenoy talks about the strong and safe community that is Carlstadt and his commitment to its preservation.

Each of the five tracks were placed incredibly well in the 11 minute video, and certainly puts on display the versatility and depth of the AudioMicro Library (Not to mention the fantastic video production services by AJ Video).

Congratulations to AJ Video Services and the three newly elected officials for a great campaign. You can check out the full campaign video here.

Adding music will attract 100% more viewers to your online videos.

Here is a YouTube video we randomly pulled today called “scacchi clay stop motion – chess clay stop motion”.  This video has close to 250,000 views on YouTube, undoubtedly earning rev share money for it’s creator.   It’s a great example of how the music makes the video (or phrased a better way, the music is at least 50% of the entertainment value of this video or more).  Wonder if they legally licensed this track?  Likely so as it came from the YouTube music libary that allows you to overlay certain public domain tracks.  The popularity of videos like this one serve as a powerful reminder of the entertainment value of music when pared with a visual production and the need for a viable outlet for appropriately securing sync licenses for consumer generated videos such as those on YouTube.
