Moby Offers Up Free Music to Filmmakers

A lit­tle gift from Moby to film­mak­ers. If you’re an indie film­mak­er, non-prof­it film­mak­er or film stu­dent, you can head to, reg­is­ter for the site, and then start brows­ing through a fair­ly exten­sive cat­a­logue of record­ings — 150 record­ings in total.

As Moby tells us, you can “down­load what­ev­er you want to use in your film or video or short. The music is free as long as it’s being used in a non-com­mer­cial or non-prof­it film, video, or short.”

If you’re a com­mer­cial film­mak­er, don’t fret. Moby gives you the option to license the music, and the mon­ey will be donat­ed to the humane soci­ety.

Final­ly, film lovers, don’t miss our col­lec­tion of 1100 Free Movies Online. It includes all kinds of good clas­sics, west­erns, doc­u­men­taries, noir films and more.

Moby fans will also want to see this oth­er free­bie: Moby Lets You Down­load 4 Hours of Ambi­ent Music to Help You Sleep, Med­i­tate, Do Yoga & Not Pan­ic

    Dear, I am a moviemak­er and I am going to parte­ci­pate to an ital­ian con­test in a week. That is why I would like to use some songs of your web­site in my videos. How much do I have to pay to use the songs? Wait­ing for an answer.

    Best regards,
    Lucia Parisel­la

    I am the own­er of a very small busi­ness. I made a pro­mo­tion­al video for a tech­nol­o­gy that my com­pa­ny devel­oped that will help the envi­ron­ment by sens­ing leaks in oil and gas pipelines before they become a prob­lem. I would like to use part of your song Inside and part of Everlov­ing. Is this pos­si­ble? I will look for your reply.

    Thank you
