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!

Thank you, truly. I know you may not think the video would do anything, or perhaps you did, nnetheless, I have been having trouble in my own relationship and your video makes me recap and think more deeply. Thank you. So much.

Amazing. Great animation, art-style... I love how every other dream/world/chapter has its own touch (sound-effects, art). This really feels like a trip to one's mind. We can try to guess what we see and why we see it, but in the end, we remain nothing but spectators. The glass stops us from entering the dream. One of my favourite movies so far on this site.

Wow, this was really something else.

I never would have quite expect to find content like this on Newgrounds.

It just confuses me how the mind altering pills exactly come into play, did they do good for him?

Also I enjoyed all the counter-culture/drug references, thats something new on Newgrounds

I started to cry uncontrollably near the end. At first, I was like "This is totally F.U.B.A.R." But then I was like "Oh God how can any human being excrete this many tears." Kudos, man. You're awesome.
