The Turret Anthem: A Portal Music Video

Whether you’re a fan of the Portal video game series or not, this artfully executed computer animated music video is sure to entertain.

This video was shot on black void, using a rebuild version of glados’ chamber that I put together by hand. Fun story about this video, I’ve been trying to make it for about 6 months, it’s a super late Turret Week video. I kept overthinking it, and had much of the principal synchronization done but couldnt’ figure out how I wanted to shoot it, well I sat down this weekend and knocked it out in two days, and I’m pretty sure nobody will have any problem with the results. The name of this video is The Turret Anthem, but throughout production I always referred to it by it’s secret codename, Megadub, and so it sticks.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
