Our friends over at Machinima.com have sent over a surprisingly well put together short film called "Half-Life: Origins" that retreads the… wait for it… origins of the original Half-life using a blend of live-action and CGI filmmaking.

The project was created by filmmaker Infectious Designer and does a pretty bang-up job giving plenty of winks and nods to not only Half-Life fans, but fans of Valve in general (notice the name tag for Portal’s Cave Johnson in the train).

Give the video a watch and let us know what you think in the comments below. Our only complaint is that it was over too quickly.
