Amazing 3d portal video from jason craft

Amazing 3d portal video from jason craft

Filmmaker Jason Craft has created a brilliant video, revolving around the iconic gun from the hit video game, Portal. The clip depicts the director's vision as to what will happen if the Portal gun actually existed. Reportedly, a lot of complex technologies including 3D tracking, seamless camera cuts, and 3D camera projection have gone into making this piece. For Jason, this was the most challenging project and his hard work reflects in the video.


I've heard that  a lot of Portal game fans thought that the gun featured in video is a physical object that can be purchased. However, Jason has cleared the air, saying that it has been created entirely using CGI(Computer Generated Imagery).

Here is the Video Link, Enjoy the fun with 3D.
