Halo Landfall Short Film by Neill Blomkamp

Producer Peter Jackson announced in 2007 that completely untested director Neill Blomkamp would be directing a Halo movie. There were funding problems, and creative differences between Microsoft, Bungie, and Jackson. Blomkamp worked on the movie for five months, but stopped his involvement in October 2007 to work on his first full-length movie, District 9, which was released in August 2009. After the Halo movie fell apart, Blomkamp was hired to direct three short films to promote the September 2007 release of the Halo 3 video game. As early as October 2007, fans compiled the three short films into a single film just over six minutes in length, and made the project available as Landfall. This is perhaps the closest thing we have to imagining what his Halo movie would have looked like...

Hunt The Truth

A podcast was created as a prequel to Halo 5, supposedly documenting Master Chief going rogue.

"HUNT the TRUTH is a fictional investigative audio series set in the universe of HALO. Starting just before the events of HALO 5: Guardians, season one of HUNT the TRUTH follows journalist Benjamin Giraud as he investigates the story behind the Master Chief, humanity's greatest and most mysterious hero. As inconsistencies in the story emerge, Ben is faced with toeing the government line or cutting rank and breaking the conspiracy wide open. The second season picks up with rebel leader, FERO. As FERO is forced to confront ghosts from her past, something far more sinister begins to stir in the outer colonies."

"This is like listening to a really good audio book." "When an audio series is so much better than an actual campaign."

"Hunt the Truth" Seasons 1 and 2 on Youtube -- Almost 6 hours of both seasons of the podcast, as a Youtube video (actually just the audio).

"Hunt the Truth" on Youtube -- Three separate playlists of audio-only videos. Season 1 (all 13 episodes plus intro) and Season 2 (all 6 episodes plus intro).
