An aspiring game developer has decided to use an odd way to try and convince prospective employers of his, obvious, skills.
Using the Half-Life 2 engine the voices of Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson and 2 months of his life, Mr. R. Glass has created a rather impressive remake of the now classic court room scene from A Few Good Men.

Whether you consider his work a stroke of genius or a futile exercise in demonstrating a lack of creativity, you will have to admit that now, having found out about it, you have to watch the video. If you don't choose to watch it you will have to accept that... You Can't Handle The Truth.

The high quality of the effort is the first and most obvious aspect of the movie but as its creator readily admits, There were a few glitches along the way... adding that the more observant of you ...may notice that there isn't hand animation in some shots. Clothing seems to be the other problem but Mr. Glass plans to address both issues in a future version of the movie.

For those of you wishing to recreate a scene from you favorite movie or, even better, create your own story, here is a brief description by the director of how the movie was made:

All of the camera cuts were done in the game (at least 15 point_viewcontrol entities). When you launched the level it went right into the movie and didn't stop until the end credits. I used Cannonfodder's tools to create the animations (with 3DS Max)

ummm.. i watched this... and i kept day dreaming about the movie...as good as the animation is in HL2, and in gaming in general. it still doesnt come close to the level of emotion that is shown in real life actors.i saw no passion let alone felt any passion as i watched this... eventually we will hit that marker, but today in the video.. we did noti digress

I gotta admit I though it would be awesome. Truthfully he's right no passion, no emotion just puppets lip syncing the lines from the movie with an occasional movement. LAME is the only word that fits.

this was great. very well done and kudos to the producer. As for peoples complaints, yes they dont emote as well as real life actors, but I believe the tongue in cheek aspect went right over thier heads. try to remember that. A very cool little movie, showcasing the amazing engine well.

Great work here. I can imagine the effort that went into this.As to emotion, i think the real key is using real actors motion captured. And prehaps increasing the number of different moving muscles in the characters to an even higher level.Not that i'm suggesting it for this, but for fully produced games.

I think it was a very accurate portrayal of the movie, if you haven't seen it go rent it... you won't be dissapointed. The emotion isn't too far off. It's amazing what technology is capable of. Pretty soon we won't need actors anymore... at least other than mocap. and voice... and people to put it all together... =p

Actually that freaking scared me where almost there. but man what great lip movement timing. shaking of the hands the few facial expression. Certainly reminded me of the movie.
