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!

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.
-SilverWhirl, 2010

That was incredible, great story telling, reeled me in emotionally, and great quality, could very well have been a Cartoon Network cartoon (well, back in Cartoon Network's prime!)

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.

Left utterly speechless. Smoothest animation I've seen in quite some time, gripping story, beautiful music that didn't exaggerate the situation he was in... Wonderful piece.

I just have one small question: Was it his grave the wife was visiting, or was she a vision of his deceased wife? It's utterly tragic either way, but...


Rated 5 / 5 stars

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
