Fan films can make you cringe, and then there are fan films like Portal: Survive! from Colin and Connor McGuire. The McGuire brothers have hit this one right out of the Fan-Film-Park. Bet you didn’t know such a park existed did you?
It’s more of a Thunder-Dome than a Park really. Anyone can enter, but few survive to exit in triumph. What truly makes this noteworthy, besides the overall quality and beautifully captured mood of the Portal universe, is that it cost less than $500 to make. Now I’m willing to bet that a lot of the work, as with many fan films was done pro bono or at cost by those involved. Jimmy Burns from Angry Dog Studios received special note for building the GLaDOS prop used in the film.
