Half Life 2 machinima, Shadows of the Dead, looks better than 28 Weeks Later

Something is wrong when a trailer for a machinima film is more exciting than that of a "real" movie. Or maybe, something is so very right.
 
This trailer for a Half Life 2 machinima film, Shadows of the Dead, hits the spot on many levels. Zombies, solid editing, intense music ... an extremely hokey voice over. Okay, I'll let that slide.
 
The trailer is a finalist in Liongate's The Condemned (the movie starring "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, not game) machinima contest, and was produced by the folks over at Mighty Crane Films.
 
You might recognize Mighty Crane's name or work -- we posted another one of their short films, "The Ballad of Black Mesa," a few months ago.

This 20:41 speedrun of Half-Life is a joy to watch

Segmented or not, this record-breaking 20:41 speedrun of Half-Life is seriously impressive. But as mind-blowing and enjoyable as it is to watch without context, the more you read up on the run, the crazier it all seems. Take...more
