Jan 25 2011Video Game Fan-Film Mania!: Impressive Half-Life And Fallout Shorts


Okay, so the Black Mesa short is a little higher in production value.

Because independent filmmakers want to send a message to the big studios THAT IT SHOULDN'T TAKE $80 MILLION TO MAKE A SHITTY ROM-COM THAT'LL BLOW REGARDLESS, two different groups took it upon themselves to make these impressive video game inspired shorts. Which, fine -- that wasn't really their reason for making them. I suspect it was just a little thing called passion. You know, like when you're tongue-kissing a girl real deep and squeezin' on her jubblies. Mmmmm, just like that. Anyway, the 12:00 'Beyond Black Mesa' short:

Inspired by the Half-Life Video Game series, this is an action packed short film centering around Adrian Shephard and a band of resistance fighters struggling to get out a warning about the impending invasion.

And the 16:00 'Fallout: Nuka Break':

Join Twig (Zack Finfrock), a former Vault 10 Dweller, as he searches the barren wasteland of eastern California for ice-cold Nuka Cola. Along for the ride is Ben (Aaron Giles), a radiation-ravaged ghoul, and Scarlett (Tybee Diskin), a sexy former slave. Together, the three attempt to survive both the harsh wastes and a relentless group of bounty hunters while trying to find the coveted beverage -- Nuka Cola.

Hit the jump and watch both to spend just under a half-hour sticking it to the man at work. Just make sure to lock your office door and moan real loud like you're masturbating so your boss doesn't think you're watching Youtube videos on the clock. Responsibility.

Hit the jump, do it now.

Thanks to Brian, wilmersama, Jake, Aaron, Fox McCloud (do a barrel roll!), I don't have to work today! and Teresa, who don't make fan-films because they make film-fans. Wait -- like Chinese folding fans out of old movie-reels? You guys are so crafty!

@2 F....A....I....L... now kill yourself

Te fallout one was genious


those were both acutally badass

This is absolutely amazing in every aspect. These are the people that need to make feature length films. I mean comon vault 10, 69 AMAZING

hl2 combined with l4d. i like it

the only way to get people's attention is by making a movie about some commercial brain washing product. American movie trailers are far better than their full length versions. "overcoming adversity, and getting the girl"

WHOOO!!!! YEH!!! FREE SHIT!!! Genius....both shorts were great and i agree with #7 these are the people that need to be making feature length films!! Bring it on!!!

These were both very nice. Someone needs to do Bioshock next!

Twig shoulda bought some Radaway from the merchant.

Perfect length for a joint,
Perfect all round then.

Cool! And I agree with #7&11, you need to have the passion to do good movies, and not just the love for money! And these guys clearly do!

Am I the only one fixed on Scarlet's all?

Both awesome videos. The second one was specially good, but mainly because of Vic Mignona. If you don't know him, watch this interview a couple years ago, I recorded it at an anime convention:


These are both amazing. Had seen the HL one, and already loved that, and I think the Fallout one was even better :D

Wow, I would watch feature length things, which is rare for fan made things.

Someone give these guys some money!

The Half Life one is great! Fallout one had junior high drama class level of humor and acting, though. Thankfully the girl is hot as hell.

Zach(Twig) is the host of Backyard Effects on indymogul and he recently did an episode explaining how they did some of the props in the Fallout video. Here's the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu22XNVtpo8

She can have dibs on MY pipboy, if you know what I mean.

You know what I mean.

Why didn't pick up the weapons from fallen foes? Why didn't they take ALL the weapons? :*(

I do know what you mean.
Both times.

Genius! Both videos kicked ass!

Good God.

Scarlet's ass is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo nice.
I had such a hard time watching that short...

too much faping

I like how they just replace headcrabs with zombies. That's pretty inaccurate...

THAT'S ZACH FROM INDYMOGUL!!!! i remember him talking about this

maybe you can find answers here:
you can find many cheap and fashion stuff

oh shit i forgot all about shephard! that was sick

i'd go zombie on scarlett's ass... NOM NOM NOOOOOOOOM

Shame on you!! You never posted Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy!!!

If it were the apocalypse, I would be all in the Fallout girls vidgy.

Great, more sucky shit by sucky fatass no talent actors

@33 HEY you peice of shit if you can do better i want to see it you fucking TROLL

@34 The only fucking TROLL around here is your mother. Now STFU and go get your Pampers changed.

I kinda just jacked off the whole time over the chick in the Fallout one. I simply couldn't resist them child bearin' hips.

The traveling merchant in "Nuka Break" was fucking fanTAStic! I be lolin' yo.

Robert Thorne's a hotty! Nice.
