I listened to few and then I found ‘plastic_man’ by ‘wentilators’. Hear’s the trimed version of ‘Plastic Man’ theres no words but it’s a very up beat tune, which is what I wanted for the ending of my documentary.

As well as script making Celtx has also help with scheduling the date on when I would be able to film, again with a documentary you can’t really have a schedule, but I created one anyway just to keep me on track from film to editing.

I used YouTube mostly to re-search films and Documentaries, And then embed that video on to my blog.
