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!

sad D: but really good thumbs up :D

Off we go my friend
lost in time to mend
without hope, help, or choice
we lose our grasp and voice
and meet a brand new end.

From time we are free,
Cannot speak, hear, see, or touch,
Empty entity.

Broken through the wall,
Found a brand new sight.
Finding knowledge, standing tall,
Want to learn with all your might,
Can bring back the truth and break it,
The secret is there, so take it.

There's a break from time,
The world is not prime,
Unfocused deaf and blind,
Locked inside the mind,
The universe, open on all sides,
Find the idea where it hides,
Running from both sky and sea,
Vacant of humanity.

That was very moving.

plot is fucking amazing, all my 5 r belong this, i think the moral is:
"do what you have to do before what you want to do"

I must say, that this animation it's really impressive, I like so much the plot.
A pretty good lesson came from it, keep the excellent work man :D
