attention all musicians!

Posted by rtil - September 14th, 2009

Blvd-Square and I have been working on a cartoon since February that is very important to us. We are nearing the end of the animation cycle and we've decided to open up the music to a contest!

This cartoon is going to be seen by a lot of important people who have worked with as many musicians as they have animators, and will be sent to scores of festivals across the USA and hopefully beyond - and your name could be on it. And i'm not just saying this, it's going to happen! This would be a great chance to have your music heard by more than just onlookers, playing next to an animated short with a lot of work and care.

If you'd like a shot at this, I only ask three things:
1. you must have samples of previous work
2. you must be reasonably available to make the track within the next month or two
3. please understand you will be composing a track loosely synced to events in an already animated cartoon. it will be about 4 minutes long.

Ready to enter? Here's how it works:
1. Here are 3 screenshots of the cartoon: 1 2 3 . With these 3 screenshots, you can do one of two things: send a 5 or 10 second clip of what you think a soundtrack to this would sound like, OR a song you've made in the past that you think fits.
2. Send your clip or link to lighthouse-music@rmcartoons.com, with some information about yourself, why you think you'd be best for the project, and some samples of previous work. You will receive an automated message if your submission was received. If you don't get one, feel free to PM your entry to me.

DEADLINE: September 28th, 2009(subject to change.)
TIP: we're looking for some lighthearted, adventure-y music. the original track we were going to use was this, which we have permission to use from Sega, but we'd prefer a more personal touch :).

Thanks to all of you! Jenna and I look forward to hearing from you.

NOTICE: we have chosen a winner and are no longer receiving submissions. winner will be announced soon.

attention all musicians!

Wow, really nice graphics. It'd be cool joining, but I've got too much going on right now... Looking forward to see the result, you really fit into Blvd's style and it'll be nice seeing something new from you.

thank you

awesome, reminds me of winsor mccay

I've got plenty of free time, and an entire sixth-form music-department at my disposal, so i'd be glad to put some samples together.

I've only got one of my tracks uploaded to the audio portal currently, but it's scored pretty highly.

It's not a good track for this game, but I thought you should hear some of my work.

I can have some samples ready by the end of the week if you'd like?

this is not a game, it is an animated short. if you'd like to join the contest, please send it to the e-mail or PM.

dirty man. but you should put solid snake in it =_=.


ok bro i'll think about it peace outside =_=

Pretty backgrounds! :3

I'd offer to help with the music, but I'm terribly unreliable.

haha ok well at least you're honest


this scene looks incredible
can't wait to see the finished product!

also seems that some people (example: Rob) copyin my l8s nich lol...


l8s is sweeping tba like the next black plague

Bloody Hell, those graphics look intense o_O

Whoever wins the contest will be one lucky guy.

spy's sappin my l8s

This has to be one of those few delayed cartoons that actually looks worth the wait. If i didn't know any better I'd of thought it was from some big movie judging by the pictures. Good luck with sending it to the festivals.

it has never been delayed. i've never said a release date

Looking good
Good luck with it! :D

This make me want to animate!

get burial to compose it

lighthouse girl : dirty flithy dubstep edition


you guys planning on submitting the completed work to NG as well?

maybe, although the final format will be video, so it will not be easy

rmcartoons.com? How long has that been up? Nice portfolio either way. Btw you have a broken thumbnail in the still art section; the link's fine but the thumbnails broken.

And I know this undermines the entire competition but I think <a href="http://danman87.newgrounds.com/">http://danman87.newgrounds.com/</a>, and I'm sure you've heard of him, could make something that would fit this perfectly. Just in case you don't know who he is <a href="http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/197810">http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/liste n/197810</a>


i've had rmcartoons.com for almost a year now. thanks for the tips

I am not a musician, therefore I do not have to pay attenxione.

But i will anyway. Consider it a donation.

This makes me want to skeet but I don't know where to aim.

Oh sorry my bad, good luck with it in the festivals all the same.

thank you

This looks amazing. Probably the best thing you've ever done. Even better than Freetown.

way better than freetown

those graphics are fucking beautiful, honestly some of the best I've seen. Makes me wish I was a musician, but im not.
