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!


Better than TV.

That was amazing.

The casting,
the colours,
the art style,
the story.

Honestly it's a little too good for this website.

This was a great short film that managed to tell a good story in its short but decent timeline. I found this style of flash a lot like the movie Sin City with the color and concept except no yellow blood of course lol. Nothing short of awesome work so keep it up!

it really made me feel like watching a movie from the noir time.The voices were amazing,but Ace's was the best.
Overall 10/10 5/5

p.s happyhobo123: it was "brains might beat brawns, but hot lead sure as hell beats brains"

Unlike LAN this had a great ending.
