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!


Great !

His voice is like Spike's from Cowboy Bebop!


Everything really fit together in this animation. I like the way you used the colors of the characters to show the mood of each character. The music was excellent and the voice acting was amazing. The voices were some of the best that I heard on Newgrounds. Great job!

Holy Sh*t!

Xerxes 911 was right, one of the best flashes in a long time. Art wasn't the best I've seen, but the style definitely made up for it. Story was spot on, music was perfect, but what really got me was the writing. In NO OTHER FLASH have I EVER SEEN such good writing or dialogue. To me, it was on par (make that better than) most TV shows. Fantastic job, Dave. Please, for the love of God, keep making more.


That ending was efin awsome.


One of the best flashes ive seen in a loooooooong time. Hope to see u makin another one of these in the near future......All in all GOOD JOB *claps*
