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.

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!

When I first saw the title, I didn't know what to think. When I saw the flash. I thought: "Damn, this is some awesome stuff here! Don't worry about your narrartion or animation. I'm sure I'd do worse if I tried.

Good but

Very nice video
You got every interesting new style of drawing here one NG. Story was also good and animation got me in position where i was staring at the screen without mouvement or sound in the end.
But as it is said below me, you could improve your microphone. Voice and narration is great and nicely fits into situation but its hard to understand what exactly are you saying. So pls think about getting better microphone or if you dont want waste money at least add subtitles.
