I'm not sure if I'm even allowed to ask this. I just came up with an idea I'm really excited to try working with, but there's a couple trailers that I would like audio from, that I feel will really fill it out a bit. One of them is an anime, 3 of them are non-anime.
My first question is, is there a legitimate way to get old movie trailers, without having to buy a disc on which the trailer might possibly be found? (I guess, technically, I'm asking if DLing trailers is acceptable... since they're really advertisements, are they still copyright? But I don't know if maybe there's a third alternative I hadn't thought of, like buying it on iTunes or something?) If even asking about the legitimacy of this route is out of line, then I apologize in advance, but if I'm going to have to buy a bunch of movies in the hopes they have the trailer I'll need, I need to know now, because that's just not possible for me.
The second question (if the answer to the first is "yes") is... Can you pull the voice track from the background tracks in a trailer? I know you can with SOME CD's, but are trailers just smushed into one audio layer.
And the third question, whatever the answer to the first two... How much work is it to either dub my own audio for a trailer, or find someone who might be willing to do it for me? And is payment usually considered appropriate if I ask someone else?
Sorry for the multiple questions at once, but these are all things I'd like hammered out before I begin finalizing my audio tracks.
Thank you. And as I said, if any of this is out of line, I apologize in advance.
