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

Just had to sign in to give you an awesome rating... There was one downside to it though, but I won't let the rating down because of it, the ending... he over reacted and killed her. He did a noble thing in the end, but, really don't think that it should be seen as him accepting her again and looking down on her, he did something worse, he should be the one afraid to approach her, and lower himself to her level.

Phenomenal. All I can say.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great film man I was able to undestand most of waht you were telling through the visuals (some left me scratching my head). I loved how you were able to transition from claymation, catroon drawings, and then real life characters. The moral I see in this is that you cannot escape reality and you have to face your demons. I don't give it a 5 though because I belive its truly impossible to attain a perfect score. Though I loved your film and it really suprised me compared to what other videos you will see on Newgrounds. Continue your art man; and don't stop no matter what anyone says. :)
P.S. Should see how many different meanings and morals people will get from this film :3
