There are plenty of fan-made films based on videogame franchises, but few better than this pair based off the Half-Life universe. Above is a seven minute piece of awesome, Dan Trachtenberg’s Portal: No Escape. I’m a big fan of the Portal series and it’s great to see filmmakers creating such wonderful work based on that source material.
The second film is David and Ian Purchase’s Escape from City 17: Part 2, which I’ve been waiting for since 2009 when the first half blew me away. That awaits you after the break. Enjoy!
It’s too bad feature-length films based on games aren’t this amazing. Imagine what these guys could do with an actual budget, compared to what we see in theaters every now and again. Every new Paul W.S. Anderson Resident Evil film is like a stab in the chest.
