Hello to whomever I'm speaking to!
My name is Alexander Emenheiser, animator and musician, and I'm working vigilantly and laboriously on an animated music video of Ninja Sex Party's new song "Road Trip".
DISCLAIMER: *The animation and music that goes along with it are pretty risque, so if you have a faint heart or a strong reputation to protect, I would recommend not taking part in this project. However, if you don't mind, then great!*
WHAT IS IT? The animation is a mixture of Disney and anime styles and its something that looks rather unique. It is also highly detailed because of this; lots of facial expressions and it is fairly realistic looking for cartoon's standards.www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxC68s…
Because of the highly detailed animation, I think that the backgrounds should reflect that. If you look at the background paintings for anime and for old Disney films, you'll notice that they are very beautiful and vibrant. That is the feel that I want to achieve with this project: detailed and vibrant.
As for how many backgrounds there will be, I cannot say for certain right now. I'll let you know as soon as I can, but the video is about 2:40 long and the scenes are pretty snappy, so there will be a lot.
TIME SCHEDULE: At the rate I go at with the animation (considering the animation is about 2:40 long), I get about four to six seconds finished every two weeks. So at around twenty weeks, the animation should be completely finished. (Keep in mind, there's some days that I spend one hour working and others where I spend ten hours working so that's subject to change).
LEGALITY: The artist will be allowed to own their own art and the rights to it, but for as long that I have the art in my possession, I will use it for the use of this animation in particular. Basically put, I solemnly swear that I will respect your art once it is in my possession. Once the animation is published to the internet, I will not take it down for any reason. The video will appear on YouTube, DeviantArt, and Newgrounds (and maybe Vimeo).
BONUS: You're name of choice will appear in the credits, of course. If you want any other information in the credits like your internet alias or your website or contact info, just say so. And hey, if you want, I can make you a character in the cartoon as a personal "thank you" for helping me.
PAYMENT: I will talk with the artist on how much I can pay them.
Thank you for your time and I hope to hear back from someone.
