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!

One of the best films new grounds has to offer. I do have to say that the tunnel of love looks like vagina though.

Incredibly moving and insightful. The style, tone everything was spot on! Its rare to see the human condition so well portrayed through visuals and music. I love'd it. thank you!

I'm pretty sure they gave him DMT, which is an extremely powerful hallucinogenic substance. DNT would have broken down your hemoglobin and reconverted it into methemoglobin that only contains Fe3+ and not the Fe2+ which is essential for the transport of oxygen. Beautiful piece overall though.

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! =]
