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!

Very deep :>

Impressive mixture of still frames, mixed media, and camera shots. The different art mediums really helped show the just how intense Jack's sense of reality was falling apart right before he made his confession about his girlfriend's end. For what was made within a two year span and low budget, this is very well put together and it does manage to get it's main point across.

I think I would've liked to had seen a better sense of time passing in between the fantasy shots to show abit more of just how lost in thought Jack was.

Ok so I really did not care for the story. It was slow to develop, had several parts that seemingly paid nothing into the overall message, and even when I did find something to put it all together, it was hard to follow with a message that I dont think I can get behind. That being said, the craftsmanship of putting this together was amazing. While you can never please everyone with your stories, you have a gift for making a movie. I do look forward to seething what may come from you down the line. overall I voted for talent rather than content.

Meh, Reality. Who needs it? *Shrugs and asks for his straight jacket to be tightened*
On a serious note, that was the weirdest thing I've seen since the Small Horse story made for Amnesia. And I'm not sure i understood it.

I love the style and soundtrack. You should consider on directing music videos.
