Halo 5: A Hero Reborn
343 Industries . Halo 5 . June 2015
Following the world premiere of “Halo 5: Guardians” gameplay at E3 2015, developer 343 Industries today elaborated on the story of the hotly-anticipated Xbox One exclusive.
After three years of doing some different work at Microsoft, I tackled the challenge of making a documentary for Halo 5. It touches on a lot of the feelings and decisions that went into making the game. This took about a month to make and much more footage was shot than used. In all, it was about 45 interviews from people all around the team. I ended up using about 25 and focused the story more on the big bets that were taken narratively and gameplay-wise versus the technology behind the hood.
The interviews and opening were shot entirely on RED, a lot of the footage is from 2011-2013.
Cinema 4D R16 was used for the main title.
