Besides Dan Trachtenberg's marvelous "No Escape" (which I realized I have not covered in The Video Game Tome as of yet, but will soon) this is one of the best fan-made "Portal"-inspired shorts I've stumbled across. It is going viral in a major way today. Jason Craft posted this to Vimeo just over a day ago and the major gaming sites are already sharing it.
This is an enjoyable look at what it would be like to have a Portal gun in real life, y'know, the stuff geek reveries are made of. What these guys lack in acting they definitely make up for in special effects. This 3-minute clip has better special effects than some Hollywood productions! As a faux-home movie it reminded me a lot of "Chronicle," which hit theaters earlier this year. Anyways, enjoy! This is inspiring to indie filmmakers and "Portal" gamers alike.
