This project was always about a triumphant return to Halo origins. Uncovering the legacy of Master Chief. Master Chief has always been unreadable. Here we have a chance to deep dive into the emotional currents of people who helped make him. Who crafted his armor. Built his weaponry. Thematically we touch on committed heroism of Unspoken, blind dedication in Magnes and sacrifice in Lightbringers. Three stories that help Halo  leap into the infinite.

Below are the full films, that make up, Infinite.




HALO "LIGHTBRINGERS"


XBOX | 215 McCann

The process for this script is two-fold. To immerse ourselves in the claustrophobia of the trapped mine on an outer colony. And expand the human and psychological world while we do it. A DISASTER FILM AT ITS HEROIC ENDING.  






HALO "MAGNUS"


XBOX | 215 McCann

Magnus is a mother daughter story. That was the key, to know who our hero, Rivas, is. This human connection, amidst a genre film of discovery, drive, and achievement, is anchored in this narrative. This was a special project, as I loved working with Lubina Azabal and @priyablackburn. The dialogue, arriving from each of their strengths, becoming personal in their ability to complete each others thoughts.





HALO "UNSPOKEN"


XBOX | 215 McCann

A MOVING PORTRAIT OF TRAUMA. Of expression without words, but with a captivating performance. One that is delivered an elegant dance of the hands.  



Here are a few of Fiona’s sketches for the sets.
And last item -- a sweet reaction video the 215 folks put togethere...
