The lights are on
If you're not convinced that Valve's mind-bending puzzler would make a good movie, watch up and coming filmmaker Dan Trachtenberg's Hollywood-worthy short film based on Portal.
Trachtenberg originally debuted the film at Comic-Con, but today posted a 1080p version on his YouTube account. We won't spoil the video for you, but it contains some impressive special effects that rival movies with far bigger budgets. We look forward to seeing what Trachtenberg does for his next project – hopefully someone in Hollywood is paying attention, and is willing to give him a budget worthy of his talent.
