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

Thank you, truly. I know you may not think the video would do anything, or perhaps you did, nnetheless, I have been having trouble in my own relationship and your video makes me recap and think more deeply. Thank you. So much.

its really alot of nothing, the best way i could describe it is a film that tryes so hard to have no meaning that its interpreted as "deep"

What this video has taught me:
-Don't take drugs; It will mess you up
-We are human, we always make mistakes
-Love can be difficult to understand, but satisfactory with the right person
-Don't listen to commercials; they can be misleading
-Don't mix your fantasy with your reality, and to be sure to know what is real and what isn't

I loved the sense of surrealism that you have put in this video/flash. It made me ponder of what this video's message is. Now that I have watched it, it is true what your title says. We exist, and there's nothing more to that.
