Animated noir advert for hair dye! I did everything from storyboards to voices to composition - excluding the music of course, which is by Kevin Macleod.

= Guy looking in his late 40 with unshaven face for a job as a gum shoe? [Check]

Right off the bat you threw me into the world of what i didn't expect to see, if there's anything that inspires me more its noire styled genres, they are classical memories that should never be neglected because of the limit of the colour, The animation was very good, the sense of direction was perfect, such include motive and camera perception like the scene in the kitchen and the fan light that seems to be within a slight range, the voice acting is ok, and could of been done better,

You also made it clear that this was intended for a commercial use, Strangely i think it was too long for one, but that's shown potential.

It started as a much longer (less narrated) short film but I had to squeeze it into a commercial, which come in 15 second iterations. That might explain the length. Either way thank you I appreciate a well planned review!

Awesome! Loved the acting and the animation! Fantastic job. And the joke at the end was great. Good job

Seems more like an ad than an actual animation.
