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 my friend, is by far the best flash I have seen this year. Serious, tragic, emotional, gets people to think. Its amazing that it only took you one week to make. The animation quality fits the movie, since it has the simple appearance of something made with a marker.

Awesome music, especially at the end, made me swallow a tear.

Very nice aproach on the time mechanics. I have wondered about this principle too;)

all in all, you get my vote for the NATA 2012 1st place

Very deep message with a very unique story to the concept of time travel. I am truly lost for words and emotion to the caliber your mind was able to come up with such an amazing masterpiece. 5/5 5/5 Favorited, one of the greatest animations on newgrounds of all time and deserves to win the NATA competition HANDS DOWN! Not many animations have made me in loss for words and just in a state of contemplation. Well done.

Let me just say right now that if there's any flash that made me cry, this would be as close as it could possibly get. While I didn't cry, this video did really push it. Not only is this a brilliant and dark idea, it really takes something as simple as time travel and completely changes the average formula of it. I like to think that some of this idea was inspired by the saying that time isn't set in stone, and we can change it. But though this video is really good, it does raise a few questions. First off, does the time machine thingy only go forwards or does it go backwards as well? Second, how did the guys how made the newspaper know when the cure was going to be made? Is the inventor just lazy or what? Third: Why would the scientist go into a room that someone else was running away from? Did he even see the poor guy? And Fourth: Why was the guy running anyway? Did he use it and just came back? Or was there a test subject that went missing and didn't come back? Did the machine malfunction? What happened? Of course this all is from the main scientist's point-of-view, so a lot of these questions could've been going going through his head too.

Anyways, brilliant video. Can't wait to see what else you got in store.
