Okay, this is probably not the place to put it as there doesn't seem to be one as this is not Sonic related per se. However, SatAM is one of the influences of this film, so here goes: Hi, I'm an animator who owns the studio Woodard Art & Animation. I don't have a website yet outside of my deviantart page (http://www.deviantart.com/smithygcn) and I am working on a traditionally animated film called "God Bless the 80s!". It's a film where humans and animals live together peacefully (usually) and the main characters are trying to solve a mystery where thousands of people are disappearing off the face of the earth. This is a faith based film and I know the stigma surrounding those kind of films. They are normally not animated/directed well and are not entertaining and are too ham-fisted with their message and I'd agree with you! I am working on making this film entertaining first and foremost and trying to make the animation look as good as I can. The message is also "anyone can be redeemed", but it isn't going to be hammer-over-the-head. I hope to make a film all people who love cartoons can enjoy!
I'll be posting concept art when I do them:
Jason Addams - An animator for a third rate animation studio and is tired of his job. He seeks to make his own feature films and push his abilities to the limit of what he can do. Short, ill-tempered, and a smoker; Jason has issues he needs to deal with to mature on his journey. Is a Messianic Jew and is at odds with his family. Is a bit of a perfectionist.
Gabrielle Welder - An artist who hails from Jamaica. She had a troubled history and was saved by her adoptive father Jonathon. Has only recently recovered from mental issues that were brought on by a tragic event in her life and, as a result, desires the same healing in everyone. Is looking after her ailing father.
Luna Paxton - A goth/punk fox who is trying to get all of the main characters of the story together. Despite being of goth culture, she is actually very religious - she just loves the look. Is working with Cain Martinez in trying to solve the mystery of why people are disappearing.
The Deidrich - A beatnik with bad poetry. Gets confused very easily.
Quint Quinson - Man with a VERY big ego and changes jobs often. Works currently as an animation model for Jason's studio. When he introduces himself, something explodes.
Rhodelia - A dragon lady who towers over most people. Has lightning powers she recharges by coming into contact with electricity. Eats everything that isn't tied down or on fire.
Yong Moon - A Korean American who runs the White Lilly Hotel. A very busy woman with no time for herself and has never taken a vacation. Hates her job.
Dean Deanerson - Very strange individual who can cause bizarre things to happen while he's around. Never seems to notice what goes on around him. Obsessed with potatoes.
Cain Martinez - Ex-leader of a gang of four back when he was young. An outlaw being framed for the disappearances of people throughout the city or at least part of an organization behind it. A sharpshooter.
AJ Richardson - Ex-martial artist turned businessman. Runs a ketchup factory in Oregon that is in serious financial trouble. Trying to invent the world's best ketchup to put on hot dogs.
These are not all the characters. I will be posting more as I go.
