We've seen a slew of unofficial Portal
films cross our monitors in recent years, but this most recent short from The
Totally Rad Show host and filmmaker Daniel Trachtenberg
definitely takes the, uh, sugary baked dessert.
Portal: No Escape made its debut
during The Totally Rad Show panel at last month's Comic-Con in San Diego. It
features Portal's main heroine Chell (played by TV and short film actress Danielle Rayne) in an original 'origins'-esque story inspired
by Valve's portal-hopping puzzle franchise. According to a recent tweet from Trachtenberg, the
film's production began before the release of Portal 2, which would explain the
absence of Propulsion Gels, Hard Light Bridges, or sidekick robots.
Dan Trachtenberg's previous
works include the short film Kickin'; an ARG campaign for Hellboy II: The
Golden Army; and commercials for Nike, Coca-Cola and Diggnation.
