CGI Armor Testing Trailer

I’ve been meaning to post this for a little while now, but for some inexplicable reason it’s somehow managed to fall beneath the radar. Having recently been reminded of the phenomenal amount of work that’s gone into this, I figured it was high time to do something about it.

Those of you who picked up the Halo Graphic Novel last year will no doubt remember the second short story from the collection, entitled Armor Testing.

Written and illustrated by Ed Lee, Jay Faerber, and Andrew Robinson, it tells the tale of Spartan 062, Maria, as she tests out a suit of MJOLNIR Mark VI armour – by facing off against a team of ODST’s – before it is eventually shipped off to our hero Master Chief Petty Officer John 117 to be used in the field.

Heavy on action and even heavier on cool, animation student MajorDump decided to try his hand at re-creating the story as an animated CGI feature. Below is the mind blowing trailer to his forthcoming project.

A staggering piece of work that’s no doubt caught the watchful eyes of those at Bungie – we can’t wait to see how this progresses.

Hungry for more? Then check out this other MajorDump gem, and CGI remake embedded below – the classic first episode of Red Vs Blue.

Thanks to Louis Wu of halo.bungie.org (with a little help from Laird), you can download both shorts in super high-res mega-HD editions, here. Go feast!
