Intense New Live-Action 'Halo 4' Trailer Produced by David Fincher
Ever since the extremely successful Halo 3: ODST live-action trailer, Microsoft has been commissioning beautiful live-action trailers for their Halo video game series. This latest one is for Halo 4, the new sequel to the FPS game series not made by Bungie, and it brings back Master Chief. Produced by the one-and-only David Fincher and directed by Blur Studios' Creative Director Tim Miller, the trailer explores the history of Master Chief and introduces a new "ancient evil", which we get a glimpse of at the end. Even though it's all for a video game, this is some outstanding work and worth sharing with movie fans as well. Check it out!
"Master Chief's mind is violated by a powerful new enemy, who in searching for Chief's weaknesses, finds the source of his strength. Halo 4 Live-Action & CGI Trailer produced by David Fincher and directed by Tim Miller." The trailer was unveiled this week in advance of Halo 4's November 6th launch date. Tim Miller is the Creative Director of VFX house Blur Studios, and worked on certain sequences like the opening to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the in-the-works Goon adaptation. I love what AICN's Quint says about this - it shows: "how great the universe of Halo can look when translated into another art form." Indeed.
Read the full story behind how Tim Miller and David Fincher got involved with Microsoft to make this, and how the trailer came together on Fast Co: "He can look at something you’ve done and say, like, If you move that to the right and change that cut that’ll make it so much better. You can instantly see that he’s right."
