If you love the look of Half-Life 2 - and really, who doesn't - Viktor Antonov is the man to thank. But the art director for Valve's masterpiece doesn't just do games. He does movies, too.

For a few years now - since his last project, The Crossing, was canned - Antonov has been working as design director on The Prodigies, an old book which is being made into both an animated film and a video game.

Due out in March 2011, it'll be screened in stereoscopic 3D, and is about five teenagers who, after being assaulted, take it all out on the world at large.

In addition to his work on the film Antonov will also be directing the game adaptation. Be interesting to see how much of the development side of things he picked up while working with Valve.

My, those are some gorgeous pictures. I hope Valve updates their aging yet reliable Source engine so that Antonov's artistry can be reflected through level design.

In fact, I think that's what is taking Episode 3 so long. Perhaps Valve is overhauling the Source engine? Or better yet, maybe they're making a new game engine!
