Lost Heart, Found Danger

Thanks to everyone who helped me make this possible! Namely Ty Bucek, Jeff Lupetin, Kevin Czarnecki and Katelyn Foley. Without you guys there is no way this would have been nearly as good as it is!

This is my submission for the Tournament of Flash Animators (TOFA) 2011 First Round. The theme was "Lost and Found". I decided to go with a stylized Noire not only because it fits the theme so well, but because I've been wanting to do something involving detectives ever since I finished watching Twin Peaks, and just recently beating L.A. Noire certainly helped fuel that some more.

This is my first animation working with professional voice actors and not lending a voice myself. You may all know Kevin Czarnecki here on Newgrounds, his name seems to get around alot. He is one of my friends from College and was happy to lend a hand, he also found Katelyn Foley for me, who had just the most perfect voice for this! Jeff Lupetin is a veteran when it comes to voice acting, he's starred in Radio Dramas and video games (like "Red Faction" and more cult notably, Hideo Kojima's "Snatcher".) Ironically, I met Jeff and Kevin in the same place, as Jeff was my Voice Acting for Animation teacher.

Hope you enjoy!



some of the best i have seen on newgrounds

Good ol' classics.

I love it man. The animation fit well for the setting, and the voice acting was superb. The only problem I see is that you didn't list the music you used. (or maybe I missed it) Seriously though, what was that song at the credits? It was awesome.

People find this review helpful!

All the music was from a CD called "Royalty Free Music Revolution" and the name of the song in the credits was called "Nightwalk" and it is super cool! lol


The fact that you had "gum shoe" in your dialogue made this flash even better. Way to go, slick.


A really nice flash with great voice acting. *Spoilers below*

(I somewhat question the detective calling Mackey the brains in the whole brawn vs brain thing if he leaves the detective a gun after shooting him, even if he thought he was dead)


he only shot once mlg pro shot :D
