Halo: Landfall directed by Neill Blomkamp

In 2007, Neill Blomkamp, who shot to fame after his feature film directorial début District 9 released to rave reviews, directed a series of short films to promote Halo 3. These films, set in the Halo universe and collectively known as Landfall, blend live action with photo-realistic computer animation, a style that Blomkamp has become known for in the commercial advertisements he has directed and exemplified in District 9. Named to direct a live action adaptation of the Halo franchise, with Peter Jackson to produce, the funding for the project fell through. The Lord of the Rings director then produced District 9 for Blomkamp instead as one hell of a consolation prize. Presented here as a complete film is Neill Blomkamp’s Halo: Landfall.
