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 Work

Original story, and "good" animation, and very entertaining. Dialogs sounded natural, smooth, and pretty clever. I really enjoyed the ending, since it's so simple you don't see it coming. Some people try to make their story so complicated and with so many plot twits that just becomes a big mess. Keep it simple, runs natural, keep it coming :D! YOU SCORE A 10!

What a twist!

This detective is diffrent from the others, because he isn't clever, or book smart on any way. But he's a good fighter, a great shot, and knows his way around the street gangs like the back of his hand. Is there a reason for that? Or has he been doing this long enough to know all the kingpins in the city? we may never know. :D A good flash all around.

What I liked about this one the most is that you got Gillian Seed's voice actor to perform the main character. I didn't think he was still doing voice acting and Snatcher is one of my favorite games.
It was animated quite well, especially the voice acting, except for Katelyn's role. She needed to act more realistic, but overall, she did a good job.

I'm adding this to my faves.

The only word i find capable of desribing this is phenomenal

Simply Wonderful.

I've always been an avid fan of Noire movies, so it should come as no suprise that i love this, but this was exceptionally well done, and I deeply look forward to seeing more animations of this caliber from you. Great work!
