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,

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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4Y6AZUeZwk

****** 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

A film that has potential, but doesn't quite execute.

The Pros:

-Beautiful atmosphere at times that completely highlights the story.

-Great use of color

-Good sound and quality

Cons

-Bad acting

-Bad direction. I hated everything after 7 minutes of the film because it seemed like you tried to add bits of irony with added black humor to your story and that wasn't needed (At least in my opinion)

But I could see that this overall project took a lot of effort, so congrats to you there! :)

Honestly, I didn't think much of it at first. It was just shotty looking, and didn't draw me in, but I'm glad I kept watching. Loved it. Excellent story. Well done, man. Well done.

I'm reviewing to give you another 5 as well. It was long, but so what. It's not like i couldn't alt-tab or get up and find out what sunlight is for 5 mins, no biggie there. I enjoyed the clay part as well. Very good job sir, especially since it's your first attempt. I really do like it.
