Green light to show you some work I've done with Darren Wall's Planet Jump Productions as part of Halo 4 launch campaign!
Characters designed by Calum Watt, un maestro!
The Halo 4: Spartan Ops animated teaser was directed by Stuart Aitken and produced by Debbie Ross at Axis Animation alongside directors Billy Elliott, Ben Hibon and producer Caroline Wall at Planet Jump Productions.
Planet Jump Productions in association with 343 Industries and Axis Animation are delighted to present the Halo® 4: Spartan Ops animated teaser which was revealed as part of the Halo 4 campaign during E3 2012.
The final version of episode one can be seen here; HYPERLINK "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d66NOXhwfoI" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d66NOXhwfoI
This teaser was created for closed-door media showings of the Halo 4: Spartan Ops experience at the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo. This high tempo 2 minute sequence is a 2d pre-vis interpretation of the opening sequence of the first episode in the series. The teaser introduces Fireteam Majestic, as they report for duty upon the largest starship in the UNSC fleet – the UNSC Infinity. The Infinity and its crew engage a Covenant fleet as they exit slipspace and the Spartan Fireteams prepare for deployment to the Forerunner world known as Requiem.

THE "Red Death" had long devastated the country. No crisis had ever been so fatal, or so hideous.
There were sharp pains, and sudden dizziness, and then profuse bleeding at the pores, with dissolution.
But the Prime Minister (B) was happy and dauntless and sagacious. When his dominions were half depopulated, he summoned to his presence a thousand hale and light-hearted friends from among the knights of labor and whores of his court, and with these retired to the deep seclusion of one of his castellated abbeys. This was an extensive and magnificent structure, the creation of the Prime Minister's own eccentric yet august taste. A strong and lofty wall made of policemen girdled it in. This wall had tanks made of iron. The courtiers, having entered, brought furnaces and massy hammers and welded themselves to the chairs and benches. They resolved to leave means neither of ingress or egress to the sudden impulses of despair or of frenzy from within. Montecitorio, because that was the name of the fortress was amply provisioned. With such precautions the courtiers might bid defiance to contagion. The external world could take care of itself. In the meantime it was folly to grieve, or to think.
The Prime Minister had provided all the appliances of pleasure. There were buffoons, there were improvisatori, there were whores, there were musicians, there was Beauty, there was wine. All these and security were within. Without was the "Red Death."
