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!

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!

As an conclusion, it seems that either his wife survived dispite her husband's dissapearance and eventual death call, or the scientist ran out to find his wife's grave, only to wish that he could take that moment of discovery of the time machine and all those years of research in limbo if only to have those last few moments with his wife.

As I believe he was a scientist in the research of the cure that his wife needed, theoretically speaking, being stuck in limbo would give him ample time to do his 5 year research, however it seems that destiny plays it's cards no matter what trump you have.

This movie puts a great spin off the saying "how far would you go for the one you love?"

Great animation, keep it up!
