Valve introduces the Pyro and Source Filmmaker

It’s been a long time coming, but Team Fortress 2 and Valve can finally introduce the Pyro – everybody’s favourite flame loving madman. This is the ninth instalment in the “Meet the” series of web shorts, which also makes it the last.

The clip itself is really funny for about the first minute, then it just becomes really, really sad. Don’t believe me? Hit the jump to find out.

Another introduction from Valve comes in the form of the Source Filmmaker: an application that they’ve made open to all budding film makers. This is the same software tool that Valve uses in-house to make all of their trailers and web shorts, including the “Meet the” series for Team Fortress 2.

You can sign up for the Source Filmmaker beta and start making movies right away. For more details, check out the official website that Valve recently set up. If you want to know a little bit more about the SFM, then hit play on the video below.


And here’s the really depressing Meet The Pyro short.
