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
Cloud Cult

for letting me use your amazing music!

Contacted Tom about it.

This is so nicely done. And the way you make RL movie turn into a cartoon and make it seem good. This video has so much work in it. It would be wrong to give any other than top score.

This couldn't been done better!

Wow man. Its refreshing to be reminded how much hard work really pays off. So many techniques executed within this privately produced piece and awesome production quality; from camera work, perspectives, animation, to rotoscoping, claymation, and stop motion. You did really well here and the story along with the visuals and music tied everything together perfectly. Perhaps a feeling you didn't intend to impart but like I said, if we as individuals are willing to put in the work we can acheive great things (like your piece here). A lesson we lazy Americans are gonna need to learn sooner or later. Well done Marcus.
