A dedicated group of Halo fans have set out to create a live-action, episodic webseries called Halo: Helljumpers, based on the Halo short story “Dirt,” written by Tobias S. Buckell. Judging from the project’s trailer below, you would think these filmmakers had a bottomless budget courtesy of Microsoft. Think again.
Halo: Helljumpers is a wholly-independent project funded by the filmmakers themselves, and it looks like they’re sparing no expense. You can watch the trailer for the series below, and prepare for the first episode to drop in January 2012.
