The Very Cool Half-Life-Inspired Escape From City 17 Movie (Part One)
From the makers of “Escape From City 17″ The Escape From City 17 short film series is an adaptation based on the Half Life computer game saga by Valve Corporation. Originally envisioned as a project to test out numerous post production techniques, as well as a spec commercial, it ballooned into a multi part series. Filmed guerilla style with no money, no time, no crew, no script, the first two episodes were made from beginning to end on a budget of $500.
This thing is so good, the people at Valve actually flew the directors, brothers David and Ian Purchase, out to meet with them, although there is no word if this thing will ever turn into an actual movie or not. Check out www.purchasebrothers.com for more info.
