Halo 3: ODST's Live Action Trailer

Halo 3: ODST's Live Action Trailer

In the same vein as James Cameron’s immersive experience with the 3D filmmaking of “Avatar” are recent works by commercial director Rupert Sanders.

Whether it’s first-person point-of-view or simply focusing on one character, these spots take you right into their world with a simple, opinionated constraint. Take the “Halo 3: ODST” live action trailer as a perfect example of the viewer feeling the experience, even though it’s a video game trailer minus the video game.

Sanders is a name to keep watching. (The “Halo” film, slated for 2012, doesn’t yet have a director.) He’s already racked up a couple Grand Prix awards at Cannes 2008 and two best director nom’s at DGA 2006 and 2008, respectively.
