I like fan-films for the most part. Most of them are people playing tribute to something they love and also teaching themselves the craft of film making. But, let's be fare, most of them suck. Badly acted, low production values, and just experiments of wish fullfillment.
Sometimes, though, you get something like the below. It makes more sense if you've played Half-Life 2 but it is not needed. It is also violent.
I am looking forward to future episodes.
