Half-Life: Singularity Collapse (rendered as HALF-LIFE - Singularity Collapse) is a short independent fan film based on the Half-Life 2 story arc. It was released on YouTube on July 12, 2011.
The story follows a Citizen who has his apartment raided by Civil Protection and wife killed. He wakes up in a Memory Replacement device, and is saved by the Resistance who attack the building. He joins them in Combine occupation of Earth, in an attempt to eliminate a massive Superportal that the Combine is attempting to open artificially outside of City 17. The rebels are all eventually killed, but he manages to destroy the portal, and escapes with a Scout Car, but crashes and ends up in front of Gordon Freeman, standing on a debris mound with his crowbar.
Singularity Collapse took more than a year to be made, with a total budget of around $1,000. The soundtrack was composed by Danny Baranowsky, who also composed Super Meat Boy's soundtrack. Most of the special effects were made with Adobe After Effects.
