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


9:50 PM on 05.01.2007



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.

Valve database lists Left 4 Dead 3, Half-Life 3 teams

Yesterday's discovery of Valve's trademark of Half-Life 3 in Europe didn't do much for me. This latest story, however, is an entirely different matter. The company's JIRA database for project management was publicly accessibl...more
