Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy
Viewed as the tour de force of video game fan films by many game experts, MGS: Philanthropy is a feat in amateur filmmaking. Under a budget of $10,000, director Giacomo Talamini pulled a Guillermo del Toro, and squeezed every inch of his narrow cash flow to produce some amazing cinematography and a robust array of visual effects. The character development and storyline are also well crafted. Hey, when series creator Hideo Kojima gives it thumbs up, that should automatically trigger the exclamation sound effect in your head.
