Originally, I wanted to use an instrumental of Coldplay’s “Charlie Brown”. It’s one of those songs that I think are more enjoyable without the lyrics, and the music itself is very optimistic and bouncy, and I honestly thought it would be perfect for my showreel.
Unfortunately it turns out we cannot use copyrighted music for our showreels, so we have to go looking for the royalty free tracks.
There was one track called “Christmas Rap” on Incompetech.com that I considered using because of it’s bouncy yet chill mood, but it got a little grating on the ears after a while.
In the end I settled with this royalty free track I found on YouTube.
