The Halo: Reach live-action short, Deliver Hope, turned heads when it debuted two weeks ago, and now you can view a special extended version.
Sometimes in the face of unfathomable odds, the only way to accomplish a mission is to pay the ultimate price. This two minute and 15 second extended cut of the Halo: Reach live action film Deliver Hope is a dramatic depiction of the sacrifice paid by Noble Team. Itâ€™s a more in-depth look into the type of courage and heroism required of all soldiers during the battle of Reach, and includes footage not seen in the original 60 second version of the film.
Deliver Hope is the dramatic capstone to the series of live-action ads from acclaimed director Noam Murro (Smart People), who also directed the Halo: Reach Birth of a Spartan short and a collection of live-action vignettes housed at RememberReach.com.
Deliver Hope features an original musical score written and produced by Human, with Brian Emerich (The Wrestler) as sound designer. The short was edited by Angus Wall (The Social Network), and was filmed on location in Prague. For the production of Deliver Hope, Microsoft and Bungie partnered with top industry talent including ad agency agencytwofifteen, Legacy Effects (props) and Method Studios (visual effects).
Developed by award-winning studio Bungie exclusively for Xbox 360, â€śHalo: Reachâ€ť launches worldwide on Sept. 14, 2010, and in Japan on Sept. 15.
