  • Escape from City 17 - Half Life live action

    Directed by The Purchase Brothers. (David and Ian)

    Made as spec 'advertainment' for their demo reel.

    Filmed guerilla style. No crew. First two episodes made on a $500 budget, not including previous capital. Valve flew the brothers out to Seattle last year. and mentioned they were 'blown away' by the project on Steam.

    It's very good in "HQ".

      So, anyone more knowledgable than myself (shouldn't take much) know or understand how they did this; and within a $500 budget? I'd be interested to hear if so, please.

        By doing their own work for free? From my understanding it's a really great blend of game play mixed with some live action. The costumes wouldn't be all that expensive, and I would imagine the rest of the budget went towards the set.

              I had assumed "previous capital" meant anything from computers, programs, cameras, outfits, etc they already had.

              Impressive nonetheless.

                  It's not even on their website. Maybe when they mentioned a second episode, it meant filming the thing. Maybe they're in editing?

                    I did a thread search for "half life movie" and found this:

                    http://www.tacticalgamer.com/general...vie-kinda.html

                    Is there any chance we could get the search system to set the lower word size limit to 3 instead of 4? That does make the size of the search table go up quite a bit, but also makes it more useful, since there's a whole lot of TLA's used in game names, like HL2 and BF2.
