Royalty Free: The Music of Kevin MacLeod

Directed by Ryan Camarda
Documentary Feature
USA | 91 min | 2019

A documentary on composer Kevin MacLeod of Incompetech.com, his practice of releasing all his music for free and how he unwittingly became one of the most heard living composers in the world with his work ending up in millions of videos, thousands of films, and many odd places.

The current project utilizes Camarda’s direct cinematic approach to expand upon broader tangible economic issues facing our evolving technological landscape. He highly values the Creative Commons work he was able to utilize in his own films over the years and wanted to take a deep dive into the world of technology, music, and video production. As an artist and content creator, Camarda brings experience from both sides of the issue to the table and appreciates the engagement he’s received from across the globe..

Director

Ryan Camarda is a disabled filmmaker who has worked as a freelance Director, DP, and Producer. He graduated with honors from Binghamton University with a degree in Cinema and History. He was a curator for the Unwavering Truth exhibit at the Queens Museum (Exhibit bio here: http://bit.ly/2p4RWRh), in addition to having his work shown as said exhibit. In combination with the exhibit, he made an accompanying film, Unwavering Truth (seen here: http://bit.ly/2FsotLZ; keep captions enabled when viewing). Unwavering Truth is a short documentary about two women and their struggles with Neurofibromatosis Type 2, a neurological disorder that causes tumors throughout the body, causing disfigurement and sometimes causing death. Ryan approached the creation of the film with an intent to show the disorder under stark terms usually not displayed by films about illness. Additionally his short, The Craigslist Files: Episode 1 – Donnie and Charlotte, was selected as a Best of New York film in the 48 Hour Film Project festival. His short, Departure, was selected for the Melbourne International Student Film Festival.
