One of my friends is working on a film project and he wants me to make some music that leads up to an epic fight in the movie. Anyone have any suggestions on chord progressions (or anything else) that I can use to give that effect? I'm using the tones on my keyboard so I have a wide array of "instruments" I can use.

do you know how often we have people asking "how do i write an epic song?"

try the searchbar, you should get about a hundred threads.
Drop D and lots of gain, shouldnt be hard. Movie scores are rarely too intricate (think jaws).

Unless its electronic drums.

Check out the song "One Winged Angel" from the movie "Final Fantasy 7 : Advent Children", it's perfect for what you need.
