Action-packed shorts

The Purchase Bros. garner huge hype with YouTube short.

“Escape from City 17” is the first in a series of video game-based shorts from The Purchase Brothers, a Torontonian film directing duo that are sure to score big points with Half-Life video gamers. The YouTube short, initially intended as a spec piece for the bros’ portfolio, gained status as the #1 top-rated YouTube vid of all time. With a miniscule budget of $500, the bros performed all filming and post-production duties. Low budget + gun fights + stormtrooper-esque bad guys + eye of mordor type thinger + zombies = helllllls yeah!
