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!

I'm serious, one of my favorite animations so far.
First off, the music fit incredibly well with the animation, and im surprised it wasnt your work, while the lack of vocals help dramatize it.
The animation was amazing in itself and reminded me of Dextors laboratory i a spooky way XD
and the storyline blew me away. it wasn't to lengthy, yet no to short. it taught a lesson while still having loss and pain. the ending can be interpreted so many different ways... it just blows my mind, frankly.
once again, great job.

Great mix of animation and music to evoke emotions...

This was incredible! The art, the story, the music, it all tied together so smoothly. I wish I could give you a higher rating.You now have one more loyal fan. I can't wait to see more of your work.

Great movie. But, how did he survive? He didn't get any water or anything! Did anyone even find out he was missing? Well, still... that doesn't matter. I love this movie!

That was incredible, but sad. Reading your description after I watched it, I could already guess most of it right, but I don't completely understand the ending. Was the grave his, or his wife's? Well... Very good; I hope to see more.
