A movie about longing, dreams, loss, and time travel. AWESOME.

So I made this movie a few years ago. It was finished just before I started work on AwesomeRaptor. It remains the longest flash movie I've ever made. There is no dialogue, and it originally didn't even have music. And that's the main reason I never uploaded it.

But it has music now! Thanks to Chris Zito's (amazing NG voice actor and pretty cool artist too) massive music library, I was able to tune this thing up with some... tunes.

I really hope you guys like it, but if not... that's cool. Let me know what you think!

EDIT: Thanks for daily third and front page! I love you Newgrounds, and your leader Tom Fulp. <3

Also, to all you guys claiming the movie has no ending... it does. Know that part where the movie stops and the replay button appears? That's the end. The story has an intentionally ambiguous conclusion that is meant to inspire personal interpretation and conversation. Any more traditional ending I could've included would've robbed the viewer of the opportunity to really think about the movie's message. Thanks for watching!

The animation could've been a tad better but otherwise WONDERFUL, something very disneyesque about that animation, i loved it, It worked very well with no audio.

Not bad

I won't attempt to make an analysis of the ending or anything like that because it would spoil it for others. I will say though, that I liked the animation, and I was able to understand the message conveyed perfectly. Well done.

My interpretation of the end.

What happens is he goes back in time and convinces himself to not build the time machine. But if the time machine was never built, he never goes back in time to stop himself. Therefore creating a never ending paradox, so the universes only choice was to erase the time machine from existence.
