Flix for Short: Portal: No Escape

Portal: No Escape (Live Action Short Film by Dan Trachtenberg)

[Flix for Short is Flixist’s way of showing off awesome short films we find around the web. Do you have a favorite short you saw? Why not tell us about it in our Community Blogs? We’d love to see what short films you can make and find!]

Odds are, if you’re a gamer, you played Portal 2 and, like me, you probably found it to be one of the best games of the year. There have been a few Portal-themed short films, but Portal: No Escape is my favorite thanks to its high production values (check out the effects around the portals!) and the generally pretty down to earth take on the subject matter. Also, it’s rare to find a Portal video that isn’t funny or based around the infamous GLaDos or Cave Johnson. It’s a nice way to close out a busy day.
