Escape Studios has been approached to help with some of the CG and VFX work on an exciting new, non-profit project called Operation Chastity.
Operation Chastity is a planned film set in the Halo universe, centring on a platoon of Recon Marines of the 267th Marine Regiment. They operate in Argentina within a UNSC cordon, set up around the wreckage of the CCS-class battlecruiser “Chaste Ascendancy” following its crash-landing on Earth. Operation Chastity is their last mission in this forgotten part of the Human-Covenant War.
The film is being directed by Peter Cooper, a British Halo fan and first-time film maker and produced by accomplished VFX producer Nicola Instone. The film is being crewed by passionate fans and film makers from all around the world, reaching from the production’s home of Britain to as far as the Canada and Singapore. It’s scope is fully intended to be cinematic in ambition, both in story and visually and in general terms will be likened to Band of Brothers, Generation Kill, The Hurt Locker and District 9.
We've seen the first edit and it's going to be a brilliant piece of work and great opportunity for some of our escapees to show their skills in a live project. There's modelling, tracking, compositing and effects to be done so we'll be getting our hands on some really interesting work.
You can find out all about the project here.
I'll update with more news as we get it and we really look forward to being able to show some of our students work in the project when it's completed.
