ABOUT

+ WHO?

Music X Film is a passionate team of music professionals and composers providing an array of flexible music services for your film, TV and online productions.

+ WHY?

We felt the library music landscape was getting a little bland, so we started Music X Film to inject a bit of colour. We’re constantly adding exciting new tracks to our library, from the latest flavours to the old favourites.

Your time is precious and in short supply! Which is why we wanted to streamline the process of choosing music for your film by offering a range of musical solutions. The flexibility of our services, combined with the fact that we work both, directly with brands and directors as well as with agencies, means we can often cut out the links that slow the process down.


+ WHAT?

We offer multiple solutions when looking for music for your project, including:

  • Searchable library of pre-cleared tracks, ready to license (with free music search)
  • Bespoke composition
  • Music supervision/rightsholder research & clearance
  • Sync agent for a number of labels and artists (commercial track licensing)

  • + HOW?

    If you need music for your project, why not start by browsing our library. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, drop us a line.


    + WHERE?

    We’re based in Sheffield, voted one of the happiest places in the UK. Feel free to drop by for a cuppa some time!
