I love the Half-Life games and I have spent several hours, days and weeks playing the series. It has to be one of the most entertaining FPS games ever, well, in my opinion. I still find myself going back and playing these games. [singlepic id=1485 w=320 h=240 float=right]
After watching ‘Beyond Black Mesa’ I may just break out the game again.
Beyond Black Mesa is a short Independent fan film Inspired by the Half-Life Video Game series. This is an action packed short film centering around Adrian Shephard and a band of resistance fighters struggling to get out a warning about the impending invasion.

From the creators:
– Independent short film – 2 years in the making – Endless hours of post
– 1 Canon HV20
– 7 Friends
– $1,200 budget for the full short film.
This film is not HL,HL2 or Opposing Forces. It’s a short fan film that takes place in the Half-Life world. Also, as a completely independent film, we wanted to have a creative voice in the movie and make it a movie that we would enjoy shooting. We took artistic freedoms and liberties, unfortunately most of those decisions were determined by our limited resources.
