check out my website

UPDATE : Wow frontpage! thanks so much :)
Really interesting reading the large variety of reviews.
Keep them coming cause i try my best to read all of them!

Please do not vote zero because of the large filesize.
to quote another user "^^^This is not a flash file, it is a video file. .swf uses vectors, so small, <10 mb files are common. .MP4 VIDEO files are raster, which make for heavier files. When you watch a YouTube video at 720p, I can assure you, it is not 10 mb, so it is the same on Newgrounds." ALSO PLEASE WATCH THE WHOLE FILM BEFORE VOTING.

This file has been heavily compressed so that i could
be uploaded to Newgrounds. If you would like to see it in full 1080P High Definition then go to this link

****** Also thank you very much to Tom Fulp for giving me the .mp4 function so i could upload this. ******

We Just Exist is the story of a young man (Jack Campbell) trying to escape a monotonous reality and a haunting past by throwing himself into a surrealistic childlike fantasy world, but these illusions quickly begin to dissolve as a much darker reality is revealed. The films intent was to create a highly symbolic film than mainly relies on it's visuals and sounds to tell its story rather than lengthy dialogue.

The film was put together over the span of two years on a very very small budget,
originally being created as a film for Turramurra Highschool's Visual Arts HSC when i had just turned 17.
The whole thing was pretty much all done by Marcus Graham, most of it shot
at school or in his bedroom. This is Marcus Graham's first attempt at a proper film, but it certainly isn't his last.

Thanks so much to

Amazing, fantastic and touching. I really enjoyed watching this and even cried at the end T-T


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Rather inconsistent in tone, and lacking of exposition in parts. Jack is living in a mundane world, but we never see his world as mundane, we usually only see the world as he interprets it.

The tone jumps from psychological horror to bouncy imagination without picking which one it would rather be. Seeing the subject matter, I myself would have stuck to a psychological horror. This is a very scary story we're telling here, it's the story of a man literally trying to escape reality and responsibility by hiding inside his head. The bouncy tone of most of the movie doesn't fit in with that theme. Especially since you could argue the film is about a boy learning he can't run from his own issues and has to face them- an allegory for growing up.

Have you ever seen the film adaptation of Pink Floyd's The Wall? I'd look there for more inspiration. It has similar themes and a somewhat related plot.

Overall, though, it was well put together. It just seemed like it wasn't sure what it wanted to be.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

It really is something good to see something that gives a deep message (from what I gathered) in a site like these. Amazing work, really deep story, almost cried at the end. Love it, a total 5 star Movie.
