Escape From City 17, a Half-Life Inspired Fan-Film by the Purchase Brothers

The Purchase Brothers (David and Ian) are commercial directors who created this fan-film adaptation of the uber-popular video game Half-Life called Escape from City 17. As you watch this, keep in mind that it is filmed guerilla-style with "no money, no time, no crew, no script." The first two episodes were done on a budget of $500. Imagine what they could do with a Hollywood-sized budget!

I have been talking to my daughter about making a movie of this by using video capture of the gameplay but this is Sooooooo much better. Please let them make a full length movie of Half-Life2......

Made for $500 -- using thousands of dollars worth of computers, software and equipment that they have at their disposal as professional directors..?

Outstanding CG though. Would like to see them go somewhere with this, with a budget for sets and actors.
