5 BLADES A 10 miniute ninja/ samurai action animation
[/color][size=2][color=red]We are on the look out for Character Concept Artists & Environment Artists, Organic Modellers & Enviroment Modellers, Riggers, Animators, Compositors, Voice Artists and Web Admin.
The Concept is a sengoku period action sequence involving samurai and assasins, fighting a life and death battle which traverses locations such as a Japanese castle, Wooden Bridge, River and Forest. The scene is set around the Edo period.
The characters are two avenging samurai: Hanzo Masamune, a 51 year old master swordsman and his daughter Suki, a 28 year old female warrior & archer. They are being pursued by a group only known as the [color=red]Dark Path, a group of merciless mercinary ninja who’s secret operations have been, up untill now uncovered. Their latest Client, [/color][/color][/size][size=2]Murusama,[/size][size=2][color=yellow] a man in shadows, has a desire to see the Masamune line ended. Will this battle be the last for an old master at arms, or can his daughter tip the balance of the brutal ambush Hanzo finds himself in, and to prevent it from becoming fatal.
We currently have 1 concept artist working on the project, but need lots more help.
