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 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

for letting me use your amazing music!


I don't usually write a review for anything anymore because it's usually the same stuff, different presentation, but I must say this is the most EXCELLENT video I have seen in over a decade! I am absolutely astounded at how it was put together, the originality, and even the choice of music was immaculate. I was so impressed with this production that I simply just had to write something that let everyone know that this is absolutely worth it's weight in gold (figuratively speaking). I truly think you should go into movie production. You most obviously excel in the arts according to the results of this creation. Excellent job!

Thanks so much man for the kind reviews, in fact thank you to everyone reading this who left a review. Messages like this keep me passionate for creating new films. I have a new film currently in pre-production stages that'll be even more amazing than We Just Exist (I promise).
If you want to see any of my other work or be the first to hear about my new film

Once again.. thank you for the encouragement.

Epic..... Just Epic, Dont stop!!!!!!!!

Moving story about love, there are some depressing parts though.

I really liked this movie. A for effor, the switches between real and animation were well done. Although some might find it too random, trying to connect the dots in different ways to find a meaning is what makes it great in my oppinion. I think the point was to make it like a dream, where when you wake up its like wtf? Not all of it makes sense to you but it still reflects on your reality.

The characters were well done aswell, some comment bad acting but in my opinion it was great. It might feel akward at times but thats what truly makes them unique.

The only thing I didn't like is the title, but still 5 stars!

Get this shit on tv.
