So chances are if you're an Xbox 360 gamer, you like Halo. The series that made the FPS popular again and brought us the rebounding health meter and limited weapon management, has has seen many iterations by now,and each one has generally been said to have improved upon the last, and that's a sentiment I agree with, especially if you look at the sales numbers which just keep climbing and climbing. So it’s fair to say that most Xbox gamers are Halo fans because the Statistics and the Fan Base both show it. But let me ask you a simple question.
Do you like it this much?
I am proud to announce that XBLG will be exclusively covering the upcoming Halo fan project currently entitled Project Utah. This fan project isn't simply a group of kids acting out their favourite scenes, oh no. This is a high quality production featuring the incredible talents of Devin Graham, or as he is more commonly known "Devin Super Tramp" the film director. And the Musical styling’s of the remarkably skilled Lindsey Stirling. That's not to mention the stunning work and efforts of "The 405th Infantry Division" and their amazing Costume and Prop designs that ranges from the Magnum Pistol and SRS99D-S2 AM Sniper Rifle all the way to the shark toothed Flamethrower and M41 SSR MAV/AW Rocket Launcher. The project contains a Mini Web series which will bring all the elements together, a First Person Shooter styled video similar to the FPS scene in the DOOM Movie adoption and a Music video which will be performed by Lindsey Stirling. The Production will be split into three separate parts, which are to be published online on the channels and pages of all those involved so make sure you give them the support they need and we might just see even more of it in the future.
The Spartans flew out to meet up and begin their adventure together alongside the Directors and Leaders of the project. So after viewing and checking each other’s MJLNIR armor plating and all the weapons from The 405th they began their hike to the remote location where the recording is currently taking place. After a long climb, and a brief lunch, production began and from that point onwards the project has only gotten more and more impressive. Dynamic camera angles, fantastic cinematography as a whole and a superb location are really bringing it all to life in the best way possible.
The Directors of the project are Boston McConnaughey and Devin Graham and from what we've seen so far, this looks to be on par, if not better than the Halo 3 mini film, Landfall. With a dedicated staff of Spartans to take the hits, a crew of cinematographers to bring it to life and some of the best prop work I've seen to date, this is going to be an incredible interpretation of the Halo universe, brought to life through the dedication and love of the franchise. And really, what better way is there to capture the spirit of one of the industry’s most iconic productions on record. So if you think you have what it takes to keep up with the fighting warriors of the UNSC then keep your eyes locked on this site for more updates and exclusive coverage of Project Utah.
