You have to admit that a video game, movie, or comic has reached a new level when there are fans out there making films based on their favorite stories. It means the story broke through and pushed them to make new material. That’s pretty powerful. CG animator Alex Zemke loves Portal. In fact, he adores the franchise so much that he’s making an unofficial short animated fan film titled Companionship.
Right away it’s pretty obvious that this won’t look like a typical fan film. The in-progress shots show that this is being handled by a professional. I realize visuals aren’t the only factor; he still has to have a good story to go with these test renders. We’ll be staying tuned for more news.
