This new short film, Beyond Black Mesa, is set in the world of Half Life 2 and does a super job of taking us back into this world in a live action way. With the settings, effects and sounds all reinforcing the characters and logic. While the combine and zombies are nifty, I thought the environments were a standout, they did a fantastic job of bringing the map essence and detail from the game to us as real sets. Great stuff for all fans of the game and clearly a heap of work:

Oh, be warned we have zombies here again – just a warning for the ill-prepared.
