When filmmaker Jesse Brass first stumbled upon the Faux Fetus artist Welcome Wizard, he discovered three seperate tracks that helped him profile a painter and her work. The first song "MLU" had an energy, demonstrating how passion can spark interest. To show the seriousness of the artwork, he was drawn to a dark and contemplative track called "Sheep Asleep." For the closing track, "Twelve Diseases," he found the motion and movement, "helped emphasize that her career is ahead of her and helps inspire people in the closing of her story."
His profile of how painter Melanie Norris sees beauty was recently selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick, and his next project about Toronto artists is currently up on Kickstarter. To find more Creative Commons Attribution tracks from Welcome Wizard, you can find their artist page here.

When Brett Wiese Saunders finished filming his documentary Slipping: Skate's Impact on Egypt, he needed a soundtrack for it.. and found it while browsing the FMA.
Unfortunately, a number of songs were perfect for the film but were licensed as non-commercial. Even though his documentary was a commercial venture, artists who had licensed their music as non-commercial, such as Blue Swerver, Good Old Neon, and Learning Music, gave Brett permission for their music to appear in the spirit of creation.
Brett is raising funds through Kickstarter to get his doc released on DVD, paying for production costs and also passing a portion of the funding onto the musicians.
Meanwhile, since the soundtrack was sourced from tracks found on FMA, you can download it for free as a preview:
