(( Thank you, Newgrounds, for the Daily 5th, front page and very encouraging reviews! :D ))

(( A weekly third? I am deeply honored. Thank you everyone. :D ))

This is a music video I created for Valve's Music Video competition that ended more than a month ago.

Needless to say, I didn't turn it on in time. But oh well.
I finished it a couple weeks after the competition was over.
The due date was July 15th. I finished it August 6th. ._.

I had it uploaded to youtube weeks before today but have been wondering whether I should upload it to Newgrounds or not. Well, I decided to do so.

Using a combination of Stop-Motion Animation, Live-Action footage and After Effects, this music video was possible. (Special thanks again to my mother for creating the costume for my puppet.)

Hope you guys enjoy this video as much as I have enjoyed making it.

(PS: Thank you for Valve for holding to allow me to be inspired to create this video. Continue to make awesome games guys! (Like they're ever gonna read this...))

Rated 5 / 5 stars

awsome but...

awsome but even though you must have read the lab ratt webcomic to get it so accurate but he didn't die on the flore in the end he fell into a test participant cryosleep chamber after rerouting almost all of the cryosleep chambers power grid network to the one that chell was in as for the one he fell in he might've fell in one that didn't have been drain but still awsome wish i could give you a 99999999999999-bzzzz-/10!! (really i want to give you a 1000000/10 the "999-bzz" part was a portal 2 reference from the very begining of the game)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Just awesome

Very good atmosphere you got there.
Loved this OST, as for original comics.

Spent time was worth it, Hae-Joon Lee. :)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Sent chills down my spine Ratman was running down the corridoor to save Chell. This gave me the exact same feeling as reading the Ratman comic after completing Portal 2.. just more intense. Captured the (tragic) story of Ratman perfectly. Not to mention I loved the animation style, and I can tell it was a huge achievement... where you got the inspiration for doing this I don't know.
