Dan Trachtenberg is likely not a name you know. The Philadelphia native is a commercial director who has previously worked for Lexus and Coca-Cola. Now, he’ll be known as the guy who created the world’s most awesome Portal fan film.
“Portal: No Escape” does more in five minutes than most game-to-film adaptations do in their entire running time. The nifty portal effects are top notch and, frankly, look absolutely stunning for a no-budget fan film.
Somebody, whether it be Valve or Hollywood, has to snap this up and give us the Portal movie we’ve always wanted.
