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!
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!

nice animation and selection of music to go along with it.The way you animated it and the use of the music made me feel the dramatic effect of the story/

One thought: you cannot cheat time!

Very well animated well done. Although some parts were not really clear to me (like at the end when he's wife sees he's grave and ficeversa). but the main thought i understood (as stated above). I also felt very bad afterwards, as if i was missing someone or something.

Anyway, hope to see more of you in the future and take your time.

did anyone notice "herp derp" on the chalkboard?

that was very sad

This was very well writen and I can say this because I cried, I felt emotion when he was stuck in the time machine and when the wife dies. Great movie, Bravo, Encore and good luck in your future movies.
