Hey guys. In the coming weeks I'm planning to create a movie, and I'm gonna need some help. I've got a really great piece of music that every time I hear it, a battle plays out in my head. It's a great piece, (Freedom Battle by Michael W. Smith if you music downloaders want to hear it) and I finally realized a while ago that with Halo 2 and my capture card I now have a way to make my daydreams into a movie. Yay!

Anyway, the premise of this movie will be a small group of Spartans (7 perhaps?) that are besieged at Headlong. We'll start with the Spartans going about their business in the city, when suddenly Covenant forces are spotted advancing on the base. During a fierce battle set to the music, most of the Spartans will die. I've not yet decided how many will survive, but I'll say 1-3 will make it. The ending of the piece allows for a nice dramatic/heroic end, so I'll have to emphasize that as best I can.

If you've seen Biohazard or the movie 117 that was released today, this project should be similar to those. No dialogue so I won't have a chance to ruin anything with bad voice acting. Minimal sound effects, if any, so the music really works with the visuals.

I don't really have a timeframe yet for filming because I need to put schoolwork first, but I hope to get started within a week. If you're interested in acting, I'll need a few Spartans of basic colors (sage, blue, red, steel) nothing to bright (like pink or yellow). Also, make sure there's no emblem on them. Covenant forces should be blue and red, and then I'll need one steel colored elite for a special ops guy. These also should have no emblem.

All right, that's pretty much all the concrete information I have right now. As we get some of it filmed, I'll update you on progress and we can share some ideas. If you're interested, let me know here, and I'll set up some times to film. And thanks in advance if you help out.

No pink, damn it. I guess I could change my color, just this once.

Wow, thanks for the help. I should be setting up a session to film sometime after Sunday. (I'm at home in St. Louis right now so my capture card is 400 miles away). I'm thinking Wednesday-Friday nights are good, and probably Saturday, too. Let me know what times you can make it. I'll probably be able to come up with some scenes to shoot even if not everyone is there.

N1NJ4, I'm sure you'll survive without the pink. Trust me, there is hope. Smile

djstan, I'm sure you could be the Spec Ops Elite. He'll feature in part of the movie as an assassin (who gets it in the end, of course). And don't worry about talking. I won't be using the sound from the game anyway, so it won't matter. Plus the letterboxes I put on the movie should block out the names of who is talking.
