There are so many interesting ways to do this. One of the easiest ways (in-camera, no post production work) is to use a piece of glass. Film Riot did a tutorial on it, they explain it best, see below: ...

Disclaimer: not a lawyer, but based on the experience from usage (and making) of such tracks - All music is "copyrighted" by default unless the creator explicitly has in writing abandon those rights. The author can also write it's OK to use his music for "anything". Copyright only means that the author has the right to determine the usage of his track. If ...

If you ditch your plan to use moving shots you can do a simple background subtraction which will look a lot cleaner than greenscreen given this is a low cost production. This works by having a shot of your scene without any actor in it e.g. only the background and then film your scene with the actors without moving the camera, afterwards you can use a ...

A boom could be done a zillion ways. If you have a composer and a full orchestra: Timpani coupled with several double basses playing a quick bowed low note or longer depending on how long you want the boom. A "boom" could be interpreted many ways including collecting real sounds and in post production lower the pitch and cut the sound envelope to make a fast ...

A few good options to consider: If you disobey the 180 degree shutter rule, and shoot at a lower shutter speed, you'll get more motion blur in your shot. Whether or not this is what you're going for is up for debate (it'll produce a dream sequence - ghostly like effect), but it's worth trying out. Note that EVERYTHING in your shot with have increased ...

In nearly all countries, copyright protects creative works automatically. Some exceptions and restrictions apply, but unless the author has voluntarily added his work to the public domain or the copyright has expired (common terms are seventy and ninety years after publication or after death of the author), it's safe to assume all songs are copyrighted, ...

If you don't mind using a computer. There is a great solution (for me at least) which is called Blender, if you don't know about it, it is a free sortware that lets you do 3D and mix 3D with video, but it also lets you do video editing and a lot more staff. Google for Blender. With that you don't need to be very precise to record your ghosts, just record ...

No, one offending video won't taint your entire channel. At my workplace, sometimes the youtube algorithms will mistakenly flag some music to which we own the rights as copyright protected. When such an event occurs, the video is automatically un-monetized, and we are asked to demonstrate that we have rights to the music. The video still plays, we just ...

For fixed camera shots, if you plan the shot so that they don't pass over any other actors, you can simply shoot them on one plate and shoot the rest of the actors on another plate. You then mask the one plate over the other so that they appear semi-transparent and possibly use a blurred difference mask for adding an edge glow. Greenscreening overall is ...

By buying it or looking for freely licensed media (such as creative commons). I'm not sure what more you are looking for. Royalty free content still has to be purchased, there are online stores that specialize in it. The only trick with it is that you don't have to pay for each copy you make of the final media that you use it in. There may also be other ...

The royalty free music is still copy-written. You have purchased a right to use it without paying royalties, but YouTube doesn't know that you have those rights. You need to provide the necessary documentation to YouTube that you have the right to use it there (license statement from your purchase) and they should re-activate it for you. They do this to ...

"Royalty free" is funny that way, because the content is actually copyrighted - but you're given permission to use it. If you have your source, and can point to a licence that states 'royalty free' you should be able to get Youtube to reactivate your video. You'd probably need to give credits where credit's due in your about text.

I am not a lawyer, but as far as I know, the commercial vs non-commercial distinction doesn't matter in terms of copyright restrictions unless the music is released under a license that allows non-commercial use. Fair use generally only applies to using a (small) portion of the song. For example, if you had a character that is supposed to hear the song on ...

You can download royalty-free songs for video production or poems free for video production. It is no charge

This is a lot of hard work by a lot of hard working professional people that obviously love what they are doing as witnessed by how easy they made it look. First start with this really talented band that knows their material inside and out. Take a close look, do you see any other mics in the scene beside the one for the lead vocalist? There's no mics on ...

To do a video like that you can use any pro or semi-pro editing suite. But they will not enable you to produce something like that unless you have some experience in directing and in composing. There really is nothing deeply technical required to do this, so unfortunately you won't be able to just buy some software and assume you can do this.
