How That Stunning Halo 3: ODST Live Action Short Was Made

Halo 3: ODST's amazing live action trailer didn't just happen by itself. No, it took dozens of people, hundreds of man hours and a light sprinkling of movie magic to create. Here's how.

This behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the Halo 3: ODST spot offers more than just a peek at how Brute's are made into living, breathing, tiny motor-driven things. There's also a brief live action sequence from the spot left on the cutting room floor, one that Halo fans will probably want to watch frame by frame.


    Its amazing that they went to such extreme locations for a trailer! A trailer that, yes is a amazing, but a trailer! LOL it's great!

    They could have done it anywhere and it would have looked as great as it did. But they went INSIDE the Cooling Tower of an ACTIVE Nuclear Plant! Like WTF.

    I know watching it now and knowing where did it makes it feel so awesome. But they could have done that scene ANYWHERE! It just adds that extra coolness. I mean imagine the locations and the settings of a real Halo Live-action Movie!

    Only problem with the trailer is the quick edits and shaky camera. It is used to make it more realistic. Different angles, quick changes so the viewer sees it in a more realistic way rather than an explosive seem unrealistic or the Brute looking fake. Its good - but i don't want a real Halo movie to look like that.

    PS: ODST helmets are waaaay better than Recon, no?
