This is my entry for 1st round of the NMAE tournament (made in 21 days). The theme was "sweet and sour". I wanted to challenge myself a bit, so I decided to go with something film noir-inspired.
To be honest I ended up getting a bit bored with this animation, and no matter how much I stared at it it didn't seem to help. Buuut at least I've got a list of things that worked as well as things that didn't now.

I can recommend watching this in higher quality on my youtube channel: 02

I have to say, there's a surprising amount of quality animation and acting in this. In that regard, it hit the "sweet and sour" thing right on the dot.

However, I feel like the writing is where it falls short. It's a good concept, but it felt really mediocre. Perhaps this was because it was made in 21 days. Perhaps not. Everything else is suburb.

That was great! The style was soft and in simple yet nostalgic design. It was literally like watching an awesome Mystery, Suspense and Noir animation from back in the good old 90's. Audio especially voice acting was very superb. I really love the portrayal of the detective, you have to send him my regards him made my heart throb with nostalgia. He reminded me of Steve Blum for a minute there! It was a nice short, experimental take and story on mystery and a classic dose of suspense. I'm going to bestow you a 4/5 and a 4/5 in voting power. You've done a fantastic job here friend, You and your crew should be very proud on this final product. I hope the recognition picks up the pace for you. Keep practicing, creating and contributing here. I hope you've enjoyed this review friends. Good day.
