At Cut Media music is definitely a huge part of our films.  We literally spend hours searching through tracks to find the perfect fit for our edits and vision for the films.  For us the music accompanying a film is a huge character in what we’re creating and can really add another dimension to the viewing experience.


Music is an, erm, big part of studio life… :)

Music is something lots of people ask us about, both how we found it and also ‘what was the song you used in that film?’ so we’re most certainly flattered that people are interested to explore the songs further and inspired to buy them, download them and listen to the music in their own time.  We love the fact that people discover music through films, growing up as an avid fan of certain films, or watching the latest ‘action sports’ film would always inspire us to physically go to the shop and by the cd (showing our age :-)..).

So we decided to put together a Spotify playlist of music from some of our films and particularly our favourite films we’ve worked on over the years.  So hopefully if you didn’t know the track, then you do now, or alternatively we’ve created a handy list so you can look out the video if you hadn’t seen it before!  The playlist link is below and at the bottom of the page you can find all the details of which films (or not) the tracks featured!

    Thanks for sharing. Would love to know the music from the Horizons film with Hazel and Steve Findlay. Was hoping I’d find it on this list, but sadly not. :( Any clues about that one?

    Thanks for sharing. I’m wondering what music was used for the Hazel & Steve Findlay video – hoped to see it here but its not on this list. Inquiring minds want to know!
