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!

Definatly See the Noire

I felt like I was watching an old Noire movie. I definitly see inspiration from L.A. Noire and other detective classics. Good work, and I look forward to seeing you move onto the next round.

That voice! It's the voice of Spike Spiegel! It is, isn't it?

ScaredyDave responds:

Further proof no one reads the Author's Comments lol, you're not the only one to think that so don't fret lol. The guy who plays Spike's name is Steven Blum, and while I didn't get him, I did get a relatively famous voice actor to play Vic Aces. His name is Jeff Lupetin, and he's been in games like Red Faction, most notably he played the main character in Hideo Kojima's game "Snatcher".

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!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This would make for a great series.

The character development was top notch, the animation (as always) was as fluid as ever, and the whole story was enticing from begining to end. Good show, Dave. Good show.
