I am heading in to my senior year of the University of the Arts and I am preparing the beginnings of my senior thesis animation. It'll be a ~5 minute action, fighting theme cartoon, with emphasis of high-energy, stylish fight scenes.
I have gone over possible scenes in head many times and I find myself listening to tracks from the Guilty Gear and BlazBlu video game series. Example:
I also want to try something unique and throw a dash of 90s dance music to the mix.
I really like it when the music compliments the blows and impacts of fight scenes, as well as having defining character themes. There are two protagonists, one being an unarmed 20 something fighter dude with powers based on the sun and the other being a twin sword wielding young woman based off the moon. The antagonist is a burly, black-hole based 30 something power freak. I like to be cheezy, so each character will have a short intro/fight theme.
I also plan to submit it to festivals, so I want as much exposure as possible.
I am rather picky though. If you think you have a good grasp of this style or KNOW an artist on this website or wherever who enjoys a style like this, feel free to let me know. Now I'm also a college student and will not be producing this for profit form the getgo, so I am not prepared to be spending money every direction to find the right talent, but if I go with your style and it really gives me goosebumps when played with the animation, I can most certainly consider a small form of compensation.
