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

for letting me use your amazing music!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

ending felt rather weird, seeing as how she was about to leave him before she died. But I guess that he felt emotionally at peace when he jumped off. Seeing how before hand no matter how hard he tried to be in the fantasy world he was thrown into darkness. His death


Rated 5 / 5 stars

A little confusing, but main idea was eventually revealed spectacularly. The main issue I had with it is the sheer amount of detail; the design of the scenes sometiems introduced too much visual stimulus and I was left wondering if some things were important to the overall theme or not. I frequently have this problem of over-analyzing so no harm done, though. Don't worry, its not a slight on your video, which is very well done, just something I think you might want to know about.

I absolutely loved this. The idea's behind it and the way all the different animations come together is great. From a film-making point of view was superb, the special effects were great, even better they really caught me by surprise when used. It all came together and lent itself superbly to the entire story and feel of the film. This is by far the best film i have seen on this site. Large file size - worth it! =]

Wow talk about an emotional rollercoaster

Not gonna lie this movie hits me the hardest. It starts off simple and happy go lucky but then as it progresses it where it really starts to make you think about your life for a moment. Kinda leaves you with a sad feeling in your stomach right?

The animation while rather amateurish was actually really fitting for a movie like this. So all in all great work man


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Nice acid trip
