What is Forge?
What We Do:
- To help pair top-quality music, audio, and visual assets with motion picture, television, advertising, gaming, and other multimedia productions.
- We help independent composers and artists further their personal careers.
- We provide content and tools to independent photographers and videographers to help increase their business.
- We educate and help businesses, schools, and churches incorporate multimedia into their operations, legally and ethically.
There’s an ancient proverb that says, “As iron sharpens iron, so a person sharpens his friend.” With that wisdom in mind, Forge was built around the concept of collaboration and mutual success. We continually strive to create a content library that is more than just a pile of stock music by faceless creators. Yes, music is our livelihood, but we refuse to treat our composers, artists, and creators as just another commodity with a dollar sign attached. Rather, we are a family that learns from each other, grows alongside each other, and sharpens each other. Together, we share in each other’s successes, complement each other’s weaknesses, and create something that is truly greater than our individual selves. When Forge can help our music users succeed, then we also succeed. If we can help our composers and artists succeed, then we succeed along with them. We take a great deal of pride in the incredibly talented creators who put their faith in us and work with us.
Our goal is simple: to serve our users with content of the highest quality, as quickly and as friendly as we possibly can. We don’t have hundreds of thousands of tracks like the “mega libraries” (yet). On the other hand, what we lack in numbers, we make up for in the knowledge of our content and in the warmth and efficiency of our service to you.
We personally curate our catalog, so we’re intimately acquainted with the music. We know our composers personally, and we know their work well. If you need something, we’ll probably already have a song or composer in mind that will fit your project. And, if we don’t have what you’re looking for, we’ll help you find it, even if it’s from our competitor. We feel that’s what provides a better experience, not only to our clients, but also to our composers and artists.
