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

Absolutely brilliant.

Everything from the animation to the live action scenes were amazingly performed. The rythm, the story-telling, the music and the many different animation techniques played a perfectly synchronized role in this short film. There's still have a long way to go, and I'm sure we'll see nothing short of spectacular in the future from you.

I really like the stopmotion work with the claymation stuff and as you watched on it filled in the cracks of the fantasy world. The transitions were very well done. The flash was ok, acting good for home made. Thank you for sticking to your guns and finishing this massive project. Very touching.
