: Description: The Ultimate Stunting Tutorial is a video project that
: I started in 2007. The original goal of the project was to create a
: tutorial video documenting every stunt/trick/glitch on the Halo: Combat
: Evolved multiplayer map Blood Gulch. At the time, I knew only 30 stunts on
: Blood Gulch, and considered this an easy endeavor. However, as I worked on
: the video I learned more. Over the years the list of stunts grew from 30
: to 400. When the list of stunts reached 400, I decided I had to stop
: adding more to the video. The result of this gargantuan effort is the
: massive video project I bring you today. I have put my heart and soul into
: this project. Enjoy. Statistics: Started 04/2007 Completed 08/04/2014
: 400 stunts 4 hours, 45 minutes 2 seconds of video content 43 video parts
: Over 600gb of raw footage Contributions from over 100 stunters Thousands
: of screenshots I don't even play Halo 1, why should I care? You
: certainly don't have to care if you don't want to. However, if you want to
: see some of the crazy things that have been invented over the years by the
: few thousand players that have been a part of the Halo stunting community,
: this is a project you really should see. Stunting/tricking is a lot of
: fun, and has inspired a great many people. You should check it out, to see
: what it's all about. What should I watch? You should start by watching
: the intro videos. There are three of them, and each is around 2 minutes
: long. These videos contain highly edited content presented in a montage
: format. They aren't tutorial videos like the rest of the video. You can
: also check out the "extras", which are sprinkled throughout the
: tutorial sections of the video. See the Guide on the official website for
: where these Extras can be found. Video quality: The video is rendered
: in 1280x960, excluding the intros, which are rendered in 1280x720. The
: source footage is mainly 640x480, though the source footage for the intros
: is around 1280x1024. The reason for this is because this video was
: recorded before I had a powerful computer, so I could only really get
: 30fps on 640x480 when recording with fraps. You won't be able to notice it
: very much, however, save for some slight aliasing along edges. Purpose:
: This project was done by me for a few reasons, but the first and foremost
: reason was to share my knowledge and love for Halo stunting with others.
: Sadly, this project was completed after I and most others have left the
: Halo stunting scene. If this project were to gain enough popularity to
: breathe life back into Halo stunting it would be like a dream come true.
: This project was also created as a means for personal growth. In working
: on this project I have learned about project management (err, project
: procrastination maybe?), video editing, working with people, web design,
: and more. It's been an amazing experience for me, and I wouldn't have it
: any other way. Concerns: Some of you may be concerned about me. Did I
: just waste 7 years of my life doing random things in a video game? Fear
: not, most of those 7 years were spent on other, more important things. My
: family, social life, school, etc. I also don't just play Halo, I play
: Skyrim (and develop mods), League of Legends, Minecraft, and various other
: games. This project, and Halo stunting have both been very important
: aspects of my life, but they are by no means the only things that have
: made me who I am today. :) Additional information: For additional
: information on the project, the video parts, etc., please see the
: official website .

Also not to mention that the THF twitter account tweeted out the news a few minutes ago! Major props Mator. Glad I had something to do with the completion of this (even if it was some minor base pimping and site inspecting) :)
