I’m starting to have one of those nights where nothing seems to be going right, so I thought I would take a break from what I was working on and do a post. This was something I saw earlier on G4’s site, and thought was really nifty. It’s a fan made Half Life short film, that looks really damn good. From what I read on their YouTube page, it took them two years and only $1200 to make this. That’s pretty impressive. Here’s what else they had to say:
This film is not HL,HL2 or Opposing Forces. It’s a short fan film that takes place in the Half-Life world. Also, as a completely independent film, we wanted to have a creative voice in the movie and make it a movie that we would enjoy shooting. We took artistic freedoms and liberties, unfortunately most of those decisions were determined by our limited resources.

Sorry, but I’ve never played Half Life before, so I don’t know what the significance of “Black Mesa” is. I have to say that this has perked my interests though. Hopefully soon I’ll come up with my fail proof get rich quick scheme, so I can quit my job and have more time for video games, comic books and, of course, Atomic Moo. There’s always porn I guess… I could buy a camera, hire some girls, grow a mustache… maybe get these kids to do some special effects… High explosive porn? That would be freaking AWESOME!!! Bare boobies, explosions and hard core screwing (and maybe some zombies). To hell with what I was working on tonight, I’m going to start writing up a script!
