Portal: No Escape Fan Made Film


“Portal: No Escape,” is a new fan film by Dan Trachtenberg, director for Lexus, Nike, and Coca Cola commercials, stars Danielle Rayne, a TV actress, as Chell, and features special effects by Jon Chesson, who has worked on V, Falling Skys, True Blood, as well as Resistance 3, Ratchet and Clank, Mod Nation Racers, and Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier.

I am a big fan of good “Fan Films”, and this one is very good. It does start a little slow, but picks up and definitely leaves me wanting more.

    Pretty well made, but I didn’t understand where the portal gun comes from…

    Think she read a code ? Not sure either lol

    Ya it was a code telling her that it was there. The only issue I had was when she blasts the portals the first time, the ‘infinite loop’ image that was actually IN the portals wasn’t the appropriate distance. Like in the orange portal, it was just where the camera was, not where the blue one was, cause in the wide shots, you can see she was far from the blue portal. Other than that it was good, and I loved how they did the ‘Illusion’ wall.

    Obvious problems as mentioned….but this seems to be the best so far! Easily!

    I had just assumed she was the one counting days, maybe she wasn’t? Those could be a binary code or something… anyone interested in checking that out? possible Easter egg or something.

    Thought it was pretty cool and nice effects, but people have gone crazy about this on twitter.
