Half Life 2: Short Film
Escape from City 17 - Part 1
The “Purchase Brothers,” a direcing duo, made a really, really good looking short film based on Half Life 2, Valve‘s immensely popular videogame. The general idea of the game is that in the future, nazi aliens come and turn the world as we know it into a sort of dystopian totalitarian society, and you play as this messianic resistance leader. Enough about the game.
The video was done on a fairly low budget. According to Escapist Magazine:
Pretty impressive, if I do say so myself. Only part 1 is out right now, but part 2 should be out shortly. I should warn you that the content of the video is somewhat graphic, with blood and mild violence. You can watch the video in HD on youtube, or you can watch it directly on their website. 5 stars, guys. Really impressive.
