I bet in the next two years Hollywood will come with a movie related to Unicorns.. and then unicorn movies and tv series will become huge just as gay vampires did!

so far i know. episode 3 was on a hold. vavle had some other projects that were more profitable. there was no date or info given if they were continue 3 or not. this information is about 6 months old. lost interest while waiting for episode 3. thats why i aint up to date with it.
Valve did promise some a date of release but that was around 2 years ago

This shows what independent people can do without the money and resources of Hollywood. Excellent effort, keep working! Incidentally, it reminds me of the work of Moebius in Heavy Metal / Metal Hurlant from the 70's.

Carl Erik Rinsch is the director of this short film. (Sidenote: he almost got chosen to direct an upcoming Alien sequel.) It was a part of a Philips commercial campaign to advertise their LCD & LED TVs back in 2010.

#21 As far as I'm concerned it was Philips' budget that made it possible. :)
