Newgrounds OC Theme Song Contest 2019-10-04 11:09:17


Back in May we started a competition with the idea of creating a new newgrounds character base and animation. So far we have held a writing competition in which @Unabated won with their story Discount Detectives: Dicked Twice.


We then moved on to an art competition to try and bring on some artists or at the very least some concept art for the animator. We had a ton of great turn outs which you can view on my playlist here, but in the end @Unabated decided that @MrShmoods had the right vision with the following piece.



There were also a lot of honorable mentions there so I highly recommend checking out the playlist mentioned above.


Now we move on to the next steps. The voice acting and theme song sections! Find the voice acting section here. If you're also a voice actor or want to team up with a voice actor feel free to organize that. You can include voice acting in your theme song or music in their voice acting. etc...


Rules:


Only 2 submissions per person.


Nothing really. Just check out the story, the concept art, and what the artist was feeling for the concept art and make something that you think could fit to an introduction or credit scene to this animation. I know it's a bit challenging because you don't have an animation to work off of, but think of it as your contribution will actually help dictate what the final animations will look like!


You can use an older submissions as long as you think they would fit the theme, but we do recommend creating something new. The whole concept is to create an original piece.


Submit to the audio portal and link here by the deadline.


Any other audio rules apply here as well.


Deadline:


11/4/19 - Midnight EST


Prizes:


1st Place: Supporter Status, you get to join the team of judges for the next stages of the competition. Your audio will be used in the animation or you will have the chance to create something new for the animation when the time comes.


2nd Place: Supporter Status


3rd Place: Supporter Status


Other:


Just because you aren't chosen to be the 1st place doesn't mean that you might not get asked to help out with the final product. Perhaps something will fall through or there are different opportunities throughout the process where different audio would be desired.


At the end of the day @Unabated and @MrShmoods have the final say. This is more about community building and coming together to make something original.

Hmm... sounds fun. I have no idea if I understood everything cause the post is kinda vague, but having just 1 character to write a tune for seems pretty limiting. Wait, so... the goal is to make an intro/outro for the story or a theme song for the 'Guy' character? Cause these two options can be approached in two different ways.

Sorry, didn't realize that it was unclear. I can see where it could be unclear though. The idea is to make an intro/outro to this script. Basically a piece of music that could dictate to an animator what their introduction would look like. Instead of making music to an already existing intro to an animation, you're instead making music to shape what an intro to the animation could look like. I hope that kind of makes sense. I might not be wording it the right way.

The Guy character was just included in the post to give a bit of background on what has been done so far.

Wait, so are participants making a musical piece or voice acting just for that character picture you linked?

I think Fro made it clear now. You gotta make an intro/outro tune for a cartoon based on the winning story. The character is just for inspiration. Am I right?

Correct.


The character is just there to show the background of the competition so far. We held a writing competition and then an art competition. Now we are on to the theme song or intro/outro to the script.


I mention the voice acting just because there's another thread in the voice acting forum and thought if someone wanted voices in their theme they could check out that thread and message someone to collaborate. Just a thought. Didn't mean to confuse anyone.

So, we're the ones writing the story, then. That's even better.

In that case, I'm going to write a gangsta story. Because I can. That's why.

Wait how did you get that out of what I said? Its pretty clear in the opening post. There's already a story. There's already art. You're making a theme song based off of these already existing products just like the opening post states. I'm confused at what I said wrong in the opening post to cause so much confusion.

Oh, fuck...

Oh, duh, what the hell is wrong with me?

I understand now. I pick one of the winning stories or OCs. Music or voice acting based on that.

There's one winning story. The one linked to by @unabated in my original post.


Imagine that winning story is an animation. In this thread create a theme song for that animation.


The the voice acting thread in the voice acting forum is a seperate competition.

Okay then. Thank you for being patient with me on this.

EDIT: screw the music, I might just do the voice acting. If I have time.
