To watch more of my stuff
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!

You know, I cant believe I haven't seen this sooner. I've milled around newgrounds since the 90's without an acount. I never felt the real need for one until this year. I have seen some interesting stuff here, and I've also seen some real crap. I can honestly say that I have never once seen anything quite like this here. This is probably one of the best short films that I have ever watched and I feel fortunate that I have found it here. This would make a great full length film.

This was amazing! A fantastic piece with a gamut of art styles that blend into a brilliant film. Very inspirational and a great deal of talent by everyone from the actors to musicians. Marcus Graham you should be a proud filmmaker!
