Directed by The Purchase Brothers.The Escape From City 17 short film series is an adaptation based on the Half Life computer game saga by Valve Corporation. Originally envisioned as a project to test out numerous post production techniques, as well as a spec commercial, it ballooned into a multi part series. Filmed guerilla style with no money, no time, no crew, no script, the first two episodes were made from beginning to end on a budget of $500.Additional Notes:Valve flew the team out to Seattle last year, and the brothers have been in communication with them since.David and Ian Purchase are commercial directors represented by Sons and Daughters in Toronto. They are also huge fans of HL, since the days of "ivan the space biker'www.purchasebrothers.comRepresented for commercials atwww.sonsandaughters.caUPDATE:Too much traffic to purchasebrothers.com.Getting it back up.

I think I'm the only person that didn't like it. I like the idea of it, but the acting is horrible. "I hate walking ok, ugh". Really?The trailer at the end looks interesting, but it looks like more bad acting.

I never really understood that in Half Life 2. Even Half Life had it. Who the hell puts a M203 on a MP5?!

At least HL1 had the M203. You actually shoot magical grenades (from your face, even... center of the screen) from the gun's hole.
