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

I love it, I know you want everyone to see it, but you could have sent this to festivals first.
So, you are 19 now... What is next? Is this something you want to be doing or it was just for fun?
Again, congrats!

What's not to like? An original work, with all your work and energy really shining through. I'm not sure if the transitions between the real life and the animated world were necessary, but it helped with telling the story. In a more internet-like word: "Awesomesauce"

Great movie and I think instead of DNT it was supposed to be DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) I say this because he was tripping for sure ahha.

This might very well be the best animation I've ever seen not being made by pixar or such. The combination of the different styles really adds another dimension to it. Keep up the good work and you might have a future in the movie industry.
