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!

This was a really great cartoon and it worked because it was so emotional. The animation is still pretty high in terms of quality. I am glad you included a synopsis in the author comments. It certainly didn't make a lot of sense to me at first, but that's never stopped me from liking something before. I like how you really try to appeal to our place in the Universe and not just how science works. I think the stuff the scientist draws on the chalkboard are actual scientific equations.

Of course, I doubt they're about time travel. The music was just gorgeous in this. It's something like this that makes you realize you don't need to have dialogue because the music gives you all you need. It's an interesting and profound cartoon and it's great you're getting recognized for it. Hard to believe it took only a week to make!
