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!

My favorite NATA flash so far. The very end is confusing to me. *Spoiler, obviously* Is that HIM or HER? Out in the rain I mean. The...stone. ;)
Or maybe this is what you're talking about when you say "your own conclusions"...Great flash though. So, so awesome in every way.

Wow, that was pretty damn amazing. I thought the animation was surprisingly well done for being done under a week, even if the fps is set at 12. What I really liked was the flashing words giving us hints as to what was going on and what was being said, plus it appeared later on as his drawings. I'm really curious as to what's going on, as the questions offered in his drawings made me wonder. Nonetheless the story was quite sad and the musical choice for that was excellent. I really have to say that it was a very nice animation with a very interesting and emotional story.
