EDIT: Cool! Thanks you guys for the Daily First, Weekly First and Front Page! Couldn't have done it without you guys!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you "Timeless", the first flash animation that took me only one week to create. This was for the NATA 2012 opening round theme, Discovering Time Travel!
INFO:
Animation Program- Adobe Flash CS4
12 FPS (That's why it's a little slow)
I suppose your wondering what the kcuf is going on in this cartoon. The basic synopsis is a scientist wants to find a cure for his wife, finds a time machine and travels to the future. He soon discovers that he can't cheat his way by skipping ahead of time. This time void thingie he's in is a blank field where the laws of physics and time don't apply. This scientist now has to wait for the present to catch up with him. Sort of like writing a book, you can't go far ahead or you'll end up with blank pages. Finally, he goes crazy in a matter of days and starts drawing everywhere.
The main focus is the story, not the animation quality. I'd prefer to see what you guys interpret in terms of a story(I haven't spoiled much of the details) because I've left openings for your own conclusions.
Well that's enough talk from me! Don't forget to rate 5!

Left utterly speechless. Smoothest animation I've seen in quite some time, gripping story, beautiful music that didn't exaggerate the situation he was in... Wonderful piece.

I just have one small question: Was it his grave the wife was visiting, or was she a vision of his deceased wife? It's utterly tragic either way, but...

You expertly revealed his despair, then his loneliness, then his quiet descent into the hopelessness of never being free. For an animation that only took one week, you displayed true talent, sir, and I will never forget this piece.

Great story. It was about love and a man who would risk it to give his wife more time to live. Which ended up with him actually frozen in time for 5 years, not actually sure if he aged or not though. He did eventually come back which he was very happy about, but he found his own grave which his wife visits. But however you look at it he is alive, which gives him a shot at resetting his life back to normal knowing his wife is still alive. Unless she has another man she love, which wouldn't make that much since to visit his grave anymore... So I guess it felt like he should've had a happy ending

Wow, this had some real depth to it. I loved the music, and the story blended so well with such an unique art style. Way to go.
