    Gobotic Studios present: “Dawn Under Heaven”, an independently produced Halo fan film. We began preproduction in late April of 2010, with principle photography slated for early 2011.

    With the imminent release of the latest and final Halo game from Bungie, now is the time for young creatives to enter the arena with a vision of undiluted awesomeness. Right now we’re working on the props and costumes for the film, as well as getting a polished first draft of the screenplay.

    We'll be posting updates, weekly video blogs, pictures, and much more on our new website.
    dawnunderheaven.com

    To kick off the project we've come up with a little treat for everybody.
    A Reach Trooper Helmet pep file, created and unfolded by yours truly.
    It's under our Content section, waiting to be downloaded.

    As the project continues we'll be releasing more content for everyone to use.

    We're really excited to share this project with all you guys. In the coming months we'll be working on a lot of armor pieces, along with all the other goodies that go along with pre-production, and we can't wait to hear your feedback.

    WOW, This came out of nowhere!

    Looks like a north American Operation Chastity.

    We've had quite a number of fan film prospective, and this is one of the more promising ones.

    Great helmet btw.
    Too bad you're all the way in Minnesota. Too far to come and help.

    i kind of figured the drop pod seat to be at more of an angle. something to keep the trooper in a better position so they can be ready to run. more leaning then actually sitting. i saw more of a 135 degree angle with an almost roller-coaster like restraint to hold them in.

    Drop Pod Update

    Was very productive late last night at the workshop.
    We've mostly put together the seat, finishing up the legs pieces at the bottom.
    Still tons of work to be done, but it's awesome to see something start to come together.

    Still lots and lots of detail to be added.

    Make sure to check out our blog and viblogs. Always enjoy getting feedback.
    Stay Tuned!

    Real Life Drop Pod update!

    Hey everyone, just a quick update. We got the leg pieces painted with a "hammered steel" look to it. turned out pretty nice, and makes the seat pop out more from the rest of the pod.

    stay tuned for our weekly Viblog!

    Progress is looking great, guys! There are very few well done Halo fan films out there, so it's nice to see someone new stepping up to the plate with some great ideas and expertise. Keep it up!
