This Homemade Portal Video Is Pretty Darn Amazing

If you’ve enjoyed the game Portal in the past, you understand the allure of being able to open wormholes in space. Filmmaker Jason Craft decided he wanted to recreate that experience with his goofy friends so he created a CG movie that is on par with anything you can see at the theatre these days. His short, Portal: Terminal Velocity, shows us what would happen if a bunch of dudes had a gun that could instantly transport you through space and time.

The video is pretty amazing and even more amazing is their “working” portal gun. Sadly, it too isn’t real:

For those of you that think the gun is a physical prop you can buy, well…..sorry to break the news to you, but it’s entirely CG. The 3D Portal gun was replacing/covering up a painted up coffee can with tracking markers.

I like when he makes his friend fall on the stairs. Human injury is funny.
