Short and tense Half-Life fan film well worth a watch

Made for $3000 - it wasn't Freeman.

I jumped - this short Half-Life film made me jump. Heavy on the atmosphere, great costumes and make-up, well put together, dark. Enter the Freeman: Half-Life Film is worth a watch (embedded below).

The film was made by fans and shot for $3000 over two nights in a cottage in the middle of Hollywood, the makers explained.

Supplementary videos document how costs were kept down, how Gordon Freeman's HEV suit was made (ooh spoiler spoiler) and the process of making the film (commentary one and commentary two).

The director of Enter the Freeman: Half-Life Film was Ian James Duncan, who co-produced with Berhard Forcher. Great work, guys!
