Valve Interviews

PC Gamer now offers some interviews conducted during a visit to Valve's headquarters to observe what they are up to. They talk with Gabe, Doug, and Erik about why Valve would want to make a Half-Life movie themselves. They also interview programmer Josh Weier and writer Erik Wolpaw "on their insane Portal 2 ideas." Finally, their interview with Jonathan Sutton discusses why Alien Swarm was a free release: "This is an experiment for Valve to see what would happen if we released a free game, with all of the tools and the SDK, and we could see what results came out of it, how quickly people start using the tools and building things with it. Historically Valve have had great success with mods, from Counterstrike to TF, so this was really something they wanted to encourage, so that’s why we did it for free."

Lets that that $200 million number from Toy story, what percentage of that number is to pay big name voice talent? 25% 30? I believe Valve could turn out a high quality movie for a fraction of the 200 million price tag on toy story. What fraction who knows, 2nd we have no idea how much of there own money they are putting up for the movie, they will most likely have 3rd party investment for the movie, again depending on the overall budget. Lastly the stinky ness of game movies.. I would suggest to you its not just game movies but all movies out of Hollywood. There is a large percentage of just random crap coming out of Hollywood and if you want to know why just watch the interview of Kevin Smith and his dealing with the superman movie. Basically a outsider like Valve has a better change of making a good movie than anyone coming from the inside.. less baggage.
