This is my submission for the Open Round of NATA 2012.

I think it was DonkeyBazooka who once said "I hate deadlines.", and I kinda agree with him. Granted this if the very first deadline I had to work on; but from the lack of color and some general faults, I think you can tell it was a bit rushed.

But, it's done. And while I'm not sure if I can say I'm proud of it, I am sure that no one else could think of it.

Farmer is tilling his land to get ready for the next set of crops, when his hoe gets stuck; accidentally activating a time machine that has been under his land for many years, completely unaware of it. Onto which he discovers Time Travel, too bad he doesn't know how to control it.

Wow. I really liked this. It had its own unique style that grabbed me from the very start and immediatelyhad me hooked. I'm not sure why you decided to redraw every frame, even still backgrounds, but it certainly gave the animation a strange naturalness that sits in exciting juxtaposition to the smooth edges, gradient fills and tweens most commonly found in flash animations.
I thought the sound was pretty great too, from the opening ambient sounds of rural life to the sudden monstrous drone that built and built as we saw the future flash by in a dionysian mess.
I would reccomend you try animating some parts with a lower frame rate. The animation needn't be so smooth for stiller movements (the ending for example should have been much slower paced, there were far too many cuts in too far short a time for the viewer to really see what was going on).
Definitely an interesting animation, keep it up!

Not too bad, would've been better with some color. I was a little confused on which was going on as it was hard to understand. Clean up your lines and you will have a good animation.
Keep up the good work!
