This was made for the open round of the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation. The theme was "discovery of time travel."

This is the first time I've participated in anything like this, so I ended up working like crazy in case I didn't finish in time. It turns out, after spending pretty much all my free time working and temporarily forgetting about having a social life, I got it done right on time. See, I'm actually leaving to go to Waterloo for the Skills Ontario 2D animation competition soon, where I will only have access to a computer while I'm working on my animation for that competition, so I wouldn't be able to work on my NATA entry. My entry is done now, though, so I no longer need to worry about that.

As for the theme, I didn't want to do a typical time travel story, so I interpreted the theme a little differently. I recalled that scene from Back to the Future 2 where Doc draws a graph showing multiple timelines for Marty. I took this idea where, rather than moving along the forwards/backwards axis (x), I would move along the timelines axis (y), or in the case of this video, squish them all together into one timeline using a package that was supposed to be delivered to the mad scientist next door. It's a stretch in terms of adherence to the theme, but I think it still works.

Anyway, it looks like NATA's going to be a blast this year. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's entries!

I really liked this, and for some reason the little bit at the very end with Doctor Red made me like it even more. Excellent job.

Thanks! Also, glad you like the part at the end. I sort of threw it on at the end to try to explain where the package came from, which was sort of a mystery for the rest of the movie, but when I showed my parents they were a bit confused about what what was happening. Hopefully that was just them.

Thanks! ...I mean, what's a flash without a good explosion every once in a while?

Wow, I though I saw your work at the Skills Canada competition, if I remember, yours was about an injured person and his doctor... or something. I was fond of the blue color scheme that you displayed. lol, I was in team 20, but have no chance of winning. Also, the award ceremony is tomorrow, and I'd attend, but my school board is full of red tape; I was lucky to go at all. I hope you win Gold, and represent Ontario, and hopefully Canada! Also, I enjoyed this animation.

Very nice one.
I liked the idea - it was simple yet entertaining. And woah it's long too! Good job on that.
Good luck with NATA ;D Now you've got me motivated even more ^^
