I, as a lot of people out there, am a huge fan of the Half-Life series. Well, last night I was presented with a Half Life short film called Escape From City 17. I can’t believe how awesome this short is. The film is focused around the rebels trying to escape city 17. The time frame is based on events right before Dr. Freeman destroys the dark energy reactor at the top of the citadel.
The short film is directed by The Purchase brothers, and had a budget of $500 to create both shorts. Part One was created a little over a year ago, and I think it was just an experimental project, and more of a tribute to the Half-Life series. As to Part Two, focuses more on creating a solid idea that a Half-Life Movie, can actually become reality in the years to come.
