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!
