UPDATE: Uuuuh, front page?? Thanks a ton. :] And thanks for all the votes and reviews and advice. I've updated the movie with subtitles to make up for over processed audio garble.

My first newgrounds entry ever, as well as my first animation in years. It was made in part to get myself playing around with Flash again. It was also so I could get some sort of little intro for this story I've been working on, but have no intentions of animating(if it were, the style would be way different. Frame by frame awesomness that I'm not capable of now). Therefore this animations raises faaaar more questions than it answers. I worry that it won't stand too well on it's own because of that, but hey, twas a good exercise and stuff.

My apologies for the Frankenstein-esque mess that is the narration. I compiled all the clips in the most unorganized way ever, so in the end it turned into a hodgepodge of different volumes, voices, effects, and noise that was hard to fix after the fact. Blargle. Welp, lesson learned for next time.

So yep, I'm no animator(nor a voice actor, apparently), but it was fun to do. So will probably try some more stuff in the future...with less vibration inducing textures...and better audio.

Really enjoyed it!

My only disdain is with the poor audio; please invest in a better microphone, artistic expression should not be hindered by technical capacity but should be fueled by the storehouses of inspiration and creativity (of which you seem well stocked). Keep it up!

Nice Teaser

But now, you have to make the full story! Wait... Your not going to animate it? Don't worry, we like good story no matter how you make them.

I Really Enjoyed This

Look Animation is simply telling a story in a vivid manner. The style and the animation was pretty cool for this particular story and i really enjoyed it. Creepy and dark but very cool.

Sound isn't any animator's strength so don't beat your self up for it. i think if anything when not sure about your sound its always safer to add subtitles, you pulled off the look so am sure you can pull off some cool subtle subtitles along that style.

well done on your first story telling!

ps. your characters are very pretty.

I was enthralled by this short film, more of a teaser or book summary, but still enticing to the viewer who is into murder/mysteries, I would watch this film if made, but...my only complaint is that it *SPOILER DETECTED > TEXT ALTERED > RESUMING NORMAL FUNTIONALITY* but that's just a minor hiccup in a good flash entry

Good stuff

I always love 2D, paper-like animations. There's just something so simple, yet unique about the style.

I also dig the black and white goodness. Love me some black and white.

So yeah, I'm not good at expressing my opinion on things. Just know that I really liked it!
