Friends Don’t Let Friends Play with Portal Guns [Video]

Many Portal fan films are sci-fi stories in their own right; this humorous video is simply focused on what happens when three guys get their hands on a portal gun.

Jason Craft, the video’s director, explains:

My interpretation of what a real POrtal gun would be like if one existed. Based on the video game, POrtal. I tried to match the game as close as possible. This was the most challenging project I have ever undertaken, consisting of 3D tracking, seamless camera cuts and 3D camera projection. ENJOY!

We certainly wish our goofing around with friends videos came off this polished. For those of you wondering how he got such an awesome Portal Gun prop, it’s all CGI (you can check out his model here).

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Gee! I wonder what they might do if they got hold of Jak & Daxters morphing gun. Or how about Doom’s “BFG”?!

    I still hate Jiff for fooling me for a half second (when I was a kid) that I could spread a handful of peanuts on a piece of bread and actually make it turn into peanut butter. This is ten times worse.
