This is a music video I've edited for the Portal song "Still Alive" by Jonathan Coulton (from his 2011 album, "Artificial Heart," produced by John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants) using public domain films found on Archive.org. I wanted to avoid making any overt references to the game Portal, or to recreate the video game for this music video (since there are already plenty of those videos to be found online, anyway). My ultimate goal was to make a video that suited this particular version of the song.

"Still Alive" features Sara Quin (of Tegan and Sara) on lead vocals and Dorit Chrysler playing the theremin (please see links below).

"Still Alive" was originally created for the hit video game Portal:

The public domain films used in this video are "The Brain That Wouldn't Die," the original version of "The House On Haunted Hill," and "Pillsbury Cake Mix Commercial."

"'The Brain that Woudn't Die' was the first movie watched by Mike Nelson in 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' (episode 513). 'Jan in the Pan' is the irreverent nickname given to the female lead by the characters on the show." - via Wikipedia
