Polynoid Opens for Halo 4

The new series of live action web films for Halo 4 Forward Unto Dawn open with tense, dark and atmospheric CG sequences from Berlin’s Polynoid collective. This montage of all the opens forms “a seamless narrative, closing the gap between the end of Halo 3 and the beginning of Halo 4.”

Polynoid member Jan Bitzer: “For us, [the AI entity] Cortana was the centerpiece around which we spun our story. When we started working out the scenes and shots we did it under the premise that Cortana is the only ‘alive’ being we could play with.”

“Technically the time lapse sequence was most challenging. We spent a lot of time tweaking it; trying to improve every shot simultaneously to guarantee a consistent quality for the overall piece.”
