Portal: The Bleak (But Awesome) Short Film

It’s not nearly as heartwarming as yesterday’s Portal proposal, but you should definitely check out this short Portal flick, titled “No Escape,” by commercial director Dan Trachtenberg. The portal effects themselves are pretty astounding, and the whole thing is just damned entertaining, even if it’s a bit dark (well, dark dark, not funny dark, like Portal normally is). You’ll see why I had 30 email tips telling me to post this vid immediately upon awakening (and thank you all for that).
