Pah, no.... sarcasm perhaps? When I started making films, actually the first time I wanted to show one at a screening, I wanted to use a piece of phillip glass music for a film. It toiok ages but i eventually managed to phone the rights holder in the US. They said I could have a festival liscence for 50 quid, but also said that there really was no need as long I was not makin any money. Other film makers have also told me that no one ever gets hassled as it is considored 'art' if no money is made and that rights holders accept it goes on and as long as it is non profit will never chase it up.
I hope to do corperate stuff for a living soon (fingers crossed) and would clearly NEVER use comercial stuff for that. I have a friend who is a composer who will wrtie me original music, as he has done for a few other of my films.
