The lights are on
Half-Life and Portal have been frequently used as the backdrop for fan films. Portal: Survive! takes us to a moment not often seen, though: the moment of GLaDOS' awakening.
The film was created by Colin and Connor McGuire at YouTube Space LA. The pair state that the entire production budget was under $500, including the GLaDOS prop created by Angry Dog Studios' Jimmy Burns.
You might recognize the one crafty scientist from the Portal 2 tie-in comic called Lab Rat. You can read that here and watch Portal: Survive! below.
