EDIT: pre-loader doesn't seem to be animating, but the file still loads just fine. Please wait for the Play button.

This short film was an experiment in a favorite style: Film Noir. It serves as a precursor to our upcoming film Chalk Outlines. Hope you enjoy.

Although this is a live-action piece, the credits were animated in Flash. They're some of my favorite credits I've done, so I thought I'd post it here.

Sorry about the filesize, I drilled it down for hours and this is the best I could get it without really weird/gross things happening with the video or audio. Added a preloader with a play button so you can just let it load and click "Play" when your ready.

I love the transition from B&W to Color, very smooth. Love the twist at the end- also very smooth and unexpected.
Great Job, Joe! I can't wait for Chalk Outlines!

this is awesome!

wow, i can't wait for Chalk Outlines! great work.

this is a pretty good

video, but i dont really think it should count as a flash, you know?

You did it yoooouuur way.

And that is great.
What you dit is realy amazing and unique and it would be a shame if it where voted away from Newgrounds just because you did'nt draw your video.

The thing that impresses me the most is that your video has such a good quality compared to filesize.
Very good job you did there lad.
More sir!
