    Halo Live-Action Short - Landfall - from director of District 9

    Just before Halo 3 came out Bungie hired a little-known director to direct a series of short movies for the upcoming game. The shorts gave us something we'd never seen before - the Halo story in live-action. Realistic ODST troopers, warthogs and pelicans are all included... and they look great. Even the Brutes are recreated to a realism that rivals most big-budget Hollywood productions.

    Based off these director Neill Blomkamp was able to obtain financing and film his new movie District 9. Blomkamp had been in the industry for over a decade as a special effects designer and his skills show in both this short Halo movie called "Landfall" and in his movie currently in theaters.

    Many of us missed the original Halo shorts so I'm posting it here for your enjoyment.

     yeah man when these came out I thought they were real. Like they were really going to come out with a movie. I think if they made a movie now I think it wouldn't be accepted like it would have like a year ago.
