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!

Very deep message with a very unique story to the concept of time travel. I am truly lost for words and emotion to the caliber your mind was able to come up with such an amazing masterpiece. 5/5 5/5 Favorited, one of the greatest animations on newgrounds of all time and deserves to win the NATA competition HANDS DOWN! Not many animations have made me in loss for words and just in a state of contemplation. Well done.

Awesome animation and story, I think you did a great job especially when you only took a week to do it. Keep up the great job and keep showing us what you've got.

This my friend, is by far the best flash I have seen this year. Serious, tragic, emotional, gets people to think. Its amazing that it only took you one week to make. The animation quality fits the movie, since it has the simple appearance of something made with a marker.

Awesome music, especially at the end, made me swallow a tear.

Very nice aproach on the time mechanics. I have wondered about this principle too;)

all in all, you get my vote for the NATA 2012 1st place
