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!

Great Animation!

This was incredible, loved the music, loved the different scenes, the animation was smooth, and had a soft, but cool feeling to it. The story was great too!
I liked how you didn't have to use voice acting to portray your thoughts and idea's. Great flash, great work!

The Future Wasn't There, sir or madam. I can't make a sequel. It's over. Whatever happens next is beyond the scope of this movie... and would ruin the impact of the ambiguous ending.
But I think that wanting to see more is a good thing. It means I'm doing something right. Thanks for watching!

Good movie

An enjoyable movie, the first I've watched on this site for a while, it just caught my eye. I liked the message, or what I gathered from it, that he became to dedicated, to caught up in his machine that he ignored everything else in his life, sacrificing the future he was trying to reach. I'm probably wrong, but still an enjoyable movie, the lack of dialouge served it well and if there had of been any it would have hurt the movie's flow I think, the scenes spoke for themselves.
