Team Fortress 2: Meet the Pyro

Valve’s latest promo for Team Fortress 2 proves that sometimes you just need to shift your perspective and voila! — the world is a magical place.

“Meet the Pyro” is part of the long-running Meet the Team video series that introduces gamers to each of the Team Fortress characters. The Pyro was the only character who didn’t have his own video. Until now.

This project was created with Valve’s Source Filmmaker:

The Source Filmmaker (SFM) is the movie-making tool built and used by us here at Valve to make movies inside the Source game engine. Because the SFM uses the same assets as the game, anything that exists in the game can be used in the movie, and vice versa. By utilizing the hardware rendering power of a modern gaming PC, the SFM allows storytellers to work in a what-you-see-is-what-you-get environment so they can iterate in the context of what it will feel like for the final audience.

Now if they would only release Episode 3…
