Need more lunchtime viewing? Well, you could do a lot worse than this Shadowrun student film from 1992, made by Topless Roboteer Brian Cain and Gregg Hale (later of The Blair Witch Project). It’s short, but it’s also only several billion times better than that official FASA-made Shadowrun promo I showed you guys a few weeks ago. More after the jump!
? A number of professional VFX artists have gotten together in their spare time to make a fan film called Halo: Faith. The Facebook page is here, which features some art as well as a call for voice actors. You better believe the minute this thing has a promo video I’m running it.
? I’m waaaaay behind on this excellent Killzone fan video, and for that I apologize, because this is far more gripping than the bit of Killzone 3 I’ve played so far. I can’t image how they did the set and explosives; it’s crazy. And it has less people ducking behind waist-high walls, too. Thanks to AfterGlow for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
