Forums: Index Machinema, Anyone?
Note: This topic has been unedited for 708 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

Just an Idea that popped into my head. Here we are, some Halo fan fiction writers, that all have long stories about Halo, why don't we put our minds together and make a fanfiction machinema?! I bet most of you have got intresting ideas for one, and I sure go too, so who's with me? [[User:Vtar 'Kakumee|Vtar]] 12:57, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

I think plot and cast are easily debatable. However, of must importance is getting a capture card or else we'll all be acting for nothing. Regards, RelentlessRecusant 'o the Halopedia Team GDI2.jpg TALKMESSAGE 20:09, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

It looks like we're gonna use this Geevee Grab thing, not actually usable yet? --Dragonclaws(talk) 22:47, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Interesting idea, I would join gladly if I knew of someone who had a capture device, and a good one, and if we had a good camera man and director, so it wouldn't suck. I know I'm neither. I am making a couple of fanon comics though, which actually tie in with the books somewhat.

Sure, sounds good....Just Another GruntConverse 06:46, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Nice that so many liked it. My idea is this: After defeating the Covenant, the Humans and Elites started mopping up the survivors. But the Elites don't care about the Humans, they don't even talk to them, even more less help them in combat. They just walk right past the. And after every species that once was part of the Covenant surrendered (execpt the Brutes and Drones, who's had to be all extinct) the Elites turn on the Humans and attack them.

Luckily for the Humans, they are prepared. Noticing the Elites behavior, they started another SPARTAN program (Note that all your fanon about other spartan programs are not part of this story arc) codenamned only SPARTAN. They now have a much bigger number of armor to choose and is better trained than the others.

A big war is closing in and no-one can say who will be vicorios.

That's my idea, post your others [[User:Vtar 'Kakumee|Vtar]] 12:17, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Uh, forgive me, I'm only a newbie, but the Sangheili have never seemed like ones to do that kind of thing to allies. Now, if it was Prophets or something, I could understand. But the Elites? They're just too... honorable. Hell, I understand that the Human-Sangheili Alliance was rather heated, but that's extreme. But I don't have Machinima, so I hardly have a say in this.-Anno 'Rhculee(Recieve Commands from me)(My lance) 14:14, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

I guess you're right. I was just trying to make it fit in that Human Spartans were fighting Elites, but after what you say... I guess they wouldn't.[[User:Vtar 'Kakumee|Vtar]] 14:37, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Well, it doesn't have to take place during or after Halo 3, does it?-Anno 'Rhculee(Recieve Commands from me)(My lance) 15:59, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

I thought machinama was outside of all canon, in the realm of multiplayer. --Lordofmonsterisland"Roar to me" "See my footprints" 16:02, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Well, you can do that, like Red vs Blue, or you can try to work it into canon, like The Codex(Yes, I know elements of it cannot be considered canon any longer, but bear with me).-Anno 'Rhculee(Recieve Commands from me)(My lance) 16:05, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

I just remembered one thing: you can't put your weapon down in Xbox LIVE. Taht could be a problem. [[User:Vtar 'Kakumee|Vtar]] 16:24, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

There's a no weapon glitch thing I found on Youtube. --Dragonclaws(talk) 18:14, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Never the less, it should be problem, but the no weapon glitch could be useful

Well, as soon as I get Halo 3, I'll be able to act in it. Probably not voice acting, 'cause I'm only forteen, and that would be weird to try and voice-act.-Anno 'Rhculee(Recieve Commands from me)(My lance)

Yeah, i'm inly fourteen to, maybe it would sound bad, or maybe not... IDK. But does anyone have capture card?! I have a thing at home so in can record it on a VHS-tape, but i'm not sure about how to get it over to my computer then... [[User:Vtar 'Kakumee|Vtar]] 18:34, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Since it seems as no-one has a capture card, why not use GeeVee? It lets you convert your saved films to a normal movie. Maybe that's an idea. [[User:Vtar 'Kakumee|Vtar]] 19:26, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

From the look of the GeeVee site, you still need a capture card? --Dragonclaws(talk) 06:00, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Yeah i wouldn,t mind being the camera man!!! Mabye we could use forge? Also is this going to be serious or comedy, because sometimes comedy doesn't work and it makes you look like a noob but if you do it serious it works just as well but with less effort? I could also help with scripting? What do you say:

Supreme Councillor Parkster Holo-Com My Empire

I've had an amazing (well soi think) idea for machinema: What happens is that there are 5 or six different spartans who are in different custom game lobbies and then play spartan soccer (with the big ball) as a hobby (notice that this is slightly comedy but with good carayography) and somehow all meet up together in the same lobby. Then they all become friends.

Or a better idea is that there are 5 or 6 spartans who are at a training camp and in there spare time they play spartan soccer (more on the game later). Now before i go on, this may sound lame but, i'm being vauge so we can play around with the begining and how they become friends. So then they are all on foundry and decide to make a halo fanon, or just a random named, soccer team. They then recreate foundry to a football stadium (like seen in one of the bungie weekly updates) and start to train their team and organise fixtures with different teams. This will probably take about one or mabye two episodes. they then play a certain team every episode with some maches going over two episodes and some other stuff happening instead of soccer; so the viewers don't get spammed with soccer games! But underneath all of these different games and stuff; there is an under-lying main plot line (like mabye winning the galatic boom ball cup!). Yeah, mabye we could call it Boom Ball (as you use gravity hammers and the soccer ball)?

To be honest the possibilities are endless and its up to all of us but this idea, i think, will be a great, and most importantly origonal, machinema. So what do you say because i would love doing something like that?

P.S: you never know we could even invite the red vs blue team to play against us in their very own specialised episode! Supreme Councillor Parkster Holo-Com My Empire


I don't know if it's gonna be serious or comedy, we should vote about that before voting for your idea Parkster, not that I don't like it. I'll start a vote on that too just above your vote. Myself I think serious instead of comedy, It just feels like we could do it good, after looking at all the stories, think we could come up with something really good.

You are all getting off subject, this is supposed to be OUTSIDE Halo, like RvB or TSL, which means we use the game Halo 3, which is about enough help from Halo.

Before Halo 3 was released, there was some talk about that some of the Elites didn't join the Humans,but instead rebelled. Maybe we could make a machinema about this?

It's before the Battle of Reach, so there's more SPARTANs that are alive.

A group of at least three SPARTANs are hanging out at the beach on the map "High Ground", when there's an explosion (possibly caused by a pile of fuel rod cells and propane tanks :D) in the base. A firefight in the base breaks out. The SPARTANs go in, kill what they think are all of the attacking Elites (possible 00:30+ fight scene), but an Elite pops out of a building, throws a grenade, then goes back into hiding.

The SPARTANs chase after him into the building. <Location switches to the tunnels at "Isolation".> They end up in a series of tunnels, of which have multiple machine gun turrets at the end, and plenty of grenades (so the actors can cause a lot of explosions to keep the SPARTANs at bay).

... ... ... And that's all I've thought up so far. Somehow the SPARTANs kill the Elites, and something for the resolution. (Total duration of video: 2:00 to 5:00-ish.) Chiafriend12my works

Post-war setting on Sangheilos. Several pacifistic Human scientists have chosen to live there for a while to study the Sangheili people and promote relations between their people. However, a group of Sangheili radicals, who oppose the alliance, are pushing their way into parliament (or what have you). Soon the Sangheili politician supporting the Human scientists finds his policies under fire, and he takes every effort to ensure that they do not end up being deported, including a few illicit favors. Meanwhile, the Humans find themselves subjected to racism from numerous Sangheili civilians.

Eventually, the radicals get fed up trying to win slow political battles, and when most of the Sangheili are at a big event they send out people to attack the Humans. The scientists, who never wanted to hurt anybody, are forced to take up arms to defend themselves. However, the radicals put a different spin on it and report that the Humans have gone rampant and attacked harmless technicians, giving them the power to command Government militia. The Humans are forced into guerrilla tactics while they try desperately to contact their friendly politician guy so that the truth can come out.

A very inspiring idea, Dragonclaws. It has had me thinking very intently for the past few days -- I'm thinking on the general lines: I love the delicate political element. What I'm considering is as follows: the Elite peoples on Sangheilios are considering a truce with the UNSC. Despite the Battle of the Ark and the death of the Prophet of Truth, there are still are fierce Elite patriots that refuse to defile themselves with the human presence. Meanwhile, ONI recieves intelligence about the ultranationalist leader, who also had strong terrorist ties and has been disturbing the fragile peace. An ONI reconnaissance team is sent to investigate a private camp set up by the ultranationalist, and the situation erupts into a tremendous conflagaration. The ONI agents, killed, are hailed by the ultranationalists by human spies, despite the fact that the camp they were surveilling was questionable. Human and Elite patriots alike begin to denounce the peace, and an ONI special-operator team has been surrepitously dispatched to handle the situation before it sweeps from ultranationalists to the whole of the population. They're an autonomous command, and are sent to eliminate the Sangheili ultranationalist leader and UNSC senior officials that disagree with the truce. My description is very quick and messed up, but I sincerely hope it's a viable and discussable one.

Ok... scraped WWIV Idea, how bout theirs a small team of Spartans attempting to stop the Elites from gaining all the Keys to unlock a mechinism on a forerunner Installation (From the Map Valhalla) That can destroy entire planets, The team must travel to 3 maps in order to gain the keys, though just by having 1 they can stop the Elites, Travelling to the 1st known location (The Map Construct), the key in a hidden Forerunner Installation, They find a rampant Monitor, who has also been attempting to gain the key their, and uploads its AI into a computer carried by One of the Spartans, The Elites have allready constructed a lift to reach the key, though the Spartans still beat them to it, in their attempt to escape they are surrounded, with several team members injured and are forced to hand over their Key, The Spartans then escape as the Rampant Monitor attempts to attack the Elites.

After the Failure the Spartans discover the Elites also have another piece, on one of their ships (displayed by the level Epitaph) The Spartans launch a quick assualt, though one of their soldiers is captured, the group manages to escape with the key.

When they return to their own base however, (The map Pit) They find the Elites have laid an ambush and the Spartan carrying the Key is killed as the others escape.

With no idea where the final piece is the Spartans hatch a plan to break out a known terrorist, who also happens to be the leading expert on these keys, having studied them for years. The terrorist is in a Captured UNSC Base converted into a maximum security prison by the Elites,(Done on the Map High Ground) but the Spartans succeed in breaking in, rescuing him and escaping.

They then suceed in locating the final Key, (In the Sandtrap Map) Only to be captured by a splintercell group of Humans, who want to use the Key as a bargaining chip with the UNSC, they eventually do get the Chip, with the Elites in Hot Pursuit, though the Spartans are then left for dead in the middle of the desert as the Splinter Cell attempts to escape, only to be quickly killed by the Elites and the Key taken.

Returning to Valhalla, the Spartans launch a desperate last attempt to defeat the Elites, the Spartan Previously captured escapes and kills the Elite Leader, though his second Command activates 2 of the three Keys, before being killed by the main hero, the Terrorist However still manages to activate the last Key, and attempts to destroy as much of the Both UNSC and Covenant controlled planets as possible, though after a bloody battle he is felled, and the Spartan deactivate the machine, deciding it best that noone have complete control of it, as a cliff hanger the Monitor shown at the start will appear and start fixing the equiptment on Valhalla, now with a large army of Spartan Robots his AI has been downloaded into thanks to the Computer he hacked into near the start.


Sounds intresting, but what object would be the key? And how would the elites activate it? Otherwise, I like the idea. [[User:Vtar 'Kakumee|Vtar]] 12:48, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

I wasn't yet 100%.... Ive been thinkin having Sentinel Beams cuz they're all forerunnery then hav them shooting at the top of 1 of the strucures on Valhalla, and after some experimenting I found through Forge that in the lower level of the structure if u put a computer (or weapons holder, cuz they look all covvie) on a fusion coil against the wall in the middle, then destroy it, the computer looks like its sticking out of the wall, and I thought, hopefully with the no weapons glitch, we could make it look like it controls the sentinel beams.

117649 AR

The storyline would be about the struggle of a group of SPARTANs and Elites on a very obscure UNSC border colony. Isolated on the small world, the SPARTANs have been waging war with the Elites even after the start of the Civil War (the Colony had been officially classified as glassed, although many areas of the planet were still intact). However, as events take place, (the destruction of the Ark, or something other), ancient Forerunner machinery begins to go into motion, and a secondary fail-safe for activating the Halos is discovered. The Monitor strives to get each opposing side to aid him in activating the fail-safe, (I'd happily oblige to be the Monitor, which can be achieved in Forge) and when true intentions are discovered, things begin to go horribly wrong.


Thats prolly 1 of the best ideas so far :) Just Another GruntConverse 06:15, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Post-war setting. A Human vessel taking a Human and a Sangheili diplomat (and all of their guards) to Sangheilos makes a 'brief' detour after receiving a distress call on a nearby planet, currently undergoing terraforming transformation. On the planet, they find a smashed-up Phantom containing what looks like their shipboard AI, calling for help. "I'm sorry," she mutters to the bemused crew, before executing a command obliterating all traces of her from the system. Suddenly, a group of (Human) savages assault them, taking many of them prisoner.

The ship is forced to stay to launch a rescue attempt. But when they try to call for help from the UNSC, they find themselves utterly incapable of breaching Slipspace due to some local anomaly. They must land and fight off the savages themselves. However, some conflicts arise between the Sangheili and Humans regarding the proper course of action - the Sangheili have no problem with (and indeed want) killing all the Human criminals, while the Humans think they should be captured and brought back for the courts to take care of. Some of the Sangheili then end up killing some savages just to make a point.

Meanwhile, the captured team is brought to the savages' religious leader, who seeks to indoctrinate them in their belief - one eerily similar to the Covenant's. He states that the Forerunners were once mortals quite like humanity, but created a path to the divine realm and ascended into gods. The prisoners cautiously explain the myth of Halo, but the savage laughs, saying Halo has nothing to do with the Great Journey. They are shortly rescued, not by their crewmembers who were actually attacking the wrong place, but by a group of colonists who still maintain their Abrahamic beliefs, and were hunted down by the Forerunner-worshipers as heretics.

They explain to our guys what happened. During earlier stages of transformation, a Forerunner building was detected underground. As ONI wished to examine everything carefully but could not while the planet was still partially terraformed, they had the local government branch build their facility directly above the site to ensure no civilian interference. After Installation-05 sent out its pulse, the once-dead equipment became charged. The government leader tried to interpret the hieroglyphs on his own, using a program he had developed based on its similarity to Mayan script, and came to the conclusion that the Forerunners ascended into gods with a mystical pathway only he knew how to find. His charisma spawned a fast-growing cult, one that readily took over the population.

Meanwhile, the cultists wage war with the UNSC/Sangheili, using a hodgepodge of pistols and sentinel beams. The leader makes a big display of how the gods are for them and will punish all heretics, before activating a colossal EMP that fries all Human electronics, permanently grounding their ship (and destroying the terraforming machines). His plan is to make everyone entirely dependent on his Forerunner artifacts. However, a Sangheili sniper manages to mortally wound him, forcing him to make a hasty retreat into the Forerunner facility to ascend to godhood and immortality.

Our guys, aided by the 'heretics', press onward and pursue the leader. They manage to corner him in the caves when he activates a portal, what he calls the beginning of the Great Journey. He runs through the portal, along with several of his minions. Our guys know that it's just a wormhole, but also know that the cult-leader could seriously mess things up with whatever is on the other side. They make a team willing to go in, including some heretics and reformed cultists, and leave to either save the world or just find a way to contact the outside.

I haven't figured out what's on the other side yet, but it would have some weird time travel twist at the end.


This has the potential to work as an ensemble drama with a scifi plot and room for character development. The different factions of Humans could be accomplished using different armor; samurai would work well for the cultists, I think. --Dragonclaws(talk) 20:51, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Yea, this could work well... cept it would be hard to make the "savages" look like barbarians who haven't seen Human society in years..... Evrything else bout it sounds good. Just Another GruntConverse 21:16, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Alternatively, the time travel plot could be discarded and just replaced with a heretic beacon. That would simplify things. --Dragonclaws(talk) 05:46, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

In my opinion, this is the best idea so far. I assume Sandtrap would be the crashed Phantom site? simon rjhVALKYRIE 20:41, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

The whole Sandtrap area could probably pass for the planet with its rundown terraforming equipment as long we don't get too close to anything distinctly Forerunner. --Dragonclaws(talk) 01:35, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Specops306's Idea.

"The year is 2552. And for humanity, it will soon be the dawn of a new age.
Hundreds of worlds glassed. Billions dead. And now, all that stands between humanity and extinction is Earth...and one Spartan.
But there are other fights raging across the stars. Fights no less important, no less desperate.
―concept summary.

In Halo 2, we see the Master Chief destroy a Covenant Assault Carrier with one of their own bombs. Well, what if it wasnt destroyed? What if it was badly crippled, forced to flee...dragging a human Carrier, with two Marine battalions and a Naval air squadron with it? And what if they found a former human colony world now controlled by what's left of the URF? What if the Covenant Civil War forces a mutiny, splitting the alien ships crew into rival factions - one led by the Elites, one led by the Prophet and his Brutes?

And what if, underneath, an ancient evil waits to awaken?


It will have all the facets that I consider important in a story: Scope (human and covenant, enemy and ally), struggle (a five-sided battle between), and a strong theme (the thermopylae concept - few standing against many, with the UNSC and Elites uniting against everyone else). I have alist of characters, and am writing my own fanfiction. But I originally envisaged it as a machinima.

The focus would be on the humans struggle to escape their own doomed ship, set up base, survive until reinforcements come, and then to ally themselves with the Elites, examining the relationships between various Marines and ODST's. It will also focus on a Special Operations Commander, Kora 'Morhekee (:P), and his struggle to find a holy "relic" - a Flood research facility. And it will culminate with a battle for control of the Covenant Carrier, the only means of escape from Ares IV for everyone - Separatists and Loyalists, Covenant, human,and Flood.

Any takers?

Grey Team

All of us who read the books remember Grey Team. the team who had been missing for a year that was mentioned when the spartans got the Mark V MJOLNIR armour. whatever happened to them? I say we tell their Story. In Our Story they had been issued in advance a special prototype E.V.A. armour (E.V.A. Helmet, E.O.D. Chest, E.V.A. Shoulders) They are trailing a Covenent battle cruiser trying to find out were its going in deep space, well beyond UNSC Borders, they stop at an unknown planet where the cruiser discovers them and attempts to capture them. The Planet happens to be a forerunner Intell Relay with it's own moniter (so we would play in forge) known as The Speaker. We would need 3 Spartans with the above armour parts and a multitude of Elites who will be the captors. the machinima showcase's the Last Stand of the three spartans of Grey Team. My Gamertag is either XittikalNation or something else (I'm about to change it, I'll let people know when I do) and I hope enough people are interested.

Just thought we could... =

Can we kinda sort this out we have here a flurry of ideas, for plots, characters, music... I just think we need to get this sorted out, say we take a vote on all the current Plot ideas, and then expand upon that idea, that way we're at least progressing towards our goal of making some good machinema, From there we can build up the characters, and through XboxLive, audition those who've allready signed up, we can then draft up storylines, or expand upon the allready existing ones, and then sync in some music, and together, judge what best suits the moment. U don't hav 2 agree with any of this, I just thought it could kinda get the ball rolling. Thnx 4 botherin 2 read this Just Another GruntConverse 09:24, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

I'd say give people another week to post story ideas, then set up a vote. As for the voice-acting, wouldn't it be better for people to read lines into Audacity (or whatever) and post it with Megaupload or something? I mean, Rooster Teeth doesn't record the lines as they bob their characters' heads, they record each separately. --Dragonclaws(talk) 18:41, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

A week is to long, we've allready had ages, and we've allready got heaps of ideas, but I like ure idea on doing the voices ovr Megaupload, or possibly some other site, it would allow more people to do voices, allowing for a wider range of characters who don't sound the same... Just Another GruntConverse 05:05, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

I suppose that's so. Alright, I'm willing to start voting on plot ideas, or whatever. Can we agree on the rule that you can't vote for something you suggested? I mean, otherwise most people will just vote for theirs. --Dragonclaws(talk) 22:01, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

New thoughts

Since RR has moved forward with production of a machinima irregardless of the whole voting scheme, I propose a different system. I say that we create certain project pages for each specific machinima project that people want to make, and have people just sign up to contribute to the projects if they want to. This would be more in-line with the nature of a wiki than this current hierarchy-based system. --Dragonclaws(talk) 07:43, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

(If with Flood.)

Flood: "We have had many names, in many tongues, all forgotten as their speakers withered and were consumed. But those who came before, the ones who built this place and sealed us within this hushed casket, presumed to name us...the Flood."

Flood: "You seek to understand what is beyond your comprehension. To define what is infinite. To stop what is inevitable. We have consumed a thousand worlds, left entire galaxies barren. We are the Alpha and the Omega - the beginning and the end. We watched as the first stars were kindled, flickered, and died to be replaced by the new. Who are you to define us? Who are you to judge us? Who are stop us."

Common Denominator

Dear all,

I've already been working on a script for Dragonclaws's first idea -- Common Denominator. I was already discussing it yesterday with Dragonclaws, JWR, and CommanderTony, and so far they concur with the concept and my makeshift script. I apologize that the script is unformatted and wholly incomplete. Tony's begun designing the maps already and JWR and Tony have begun outfitting the characters.

This is the concept: the Human-Covenant War has ended, and Halo 3 is finished. However, despite the cooperation of Fleet Master Rtas 'Vadum and Shadow of Intent battlegroup with the UNSC Home Fleet in the Second Battle of Earth and the Battle of the Ark, the Elites are still at ill ease with the humans. Many humans remember that it was the Elites that begun the war thirty years ago, and the Elites feel warm antagonism to the barbaric infidel and apeish vermin. The UNSC is on the Elite homeworld, Sangheilios, to negotiate a truce. However, most of the Elite population is opposed to a formal truce between the humans and the Elites. The most extremist resistance lays in the Ultranationalists, zealous Elites who will do anything to prevent a permanent ceasefire to be negotiated. Meanwhile, a small UNSC research team is on Sangheilios, led by two PhDs, and guarded by three UNSC soldiers: an ONI lieutenant by the name of Wakes and a pair of Marine guards. The Ultranationalists mob the UNSC team, and they are forced to flee in a guerilla fashion and defend themselves, killing Elites, and giving justification for the Ultranationalists to demand that the humans are barbarians who are fully willing to kill Elites. Meanwhile, the onus lays on the research team: they must get back in contact with the UNSC embassy and tell them of the falsehoods being perpetrated. For ONI, the situation is irreconcilable: as long as the researchers live, and Ultranationalists will continue to stir a fervor with the already difficult Elite population. The objective of Bravo Team is the covertly assassinate the members of the hideaway researchers, and conclude the whole situation.

Of course, it gets more complicated. I have written each "normal" scene so there doesn't need to be more than five or six actors in a scene. Battle scenes might require more actors. Acting will occur through Xbox Live. Voice parts can be coordinated over Skype + Audacity. Contact RelentlessRecusant to join or for more information. Discussions for Common Denominator occur on #halopedia and #gearspedia. Actual actors will require Halo 3 and Xbox Live Gold. Voice actors only need to download Skype and get in touch with me.

Hi, I wonder, can someone who's not helping in the creation of the Machinima (I really wished I could help, but I don't have the neccessary equipment) request a character or two to be in the machinima? If so, then I got a few requests.


  • Sophie Jackson - really mean ODST chick, smokes Cuba Cigars, acts overall like a drill instructor. (Encountered briefly)
  • Jack Jackson - Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps. (Encountered briefly, perhaps as a Marine in one of the teams)

  • special forces troops: not seen much and I haven't desided if they should specops or mrecenaries.

people in the squad (goes by there codenames)

  • big boss: the leader wears standard mk VI armor but has a CQB chestplate
  • hellfire: the heavy weapons solder of the group wears EOD helmet, CQB chestplate, and security shoulder pads
  • deathstalker: the sniper wears all scout
  • HUNK: the groups tank or tank driver

  • No name yet, but some guy in the fashion of Lord Hood who is heard trough the Intercom and helping the soldiers


  • Ameigh Broley - just a reference, as actually showing her is not possible. Perhaps have one of the good guys (possibly an Elite?) say "if only Ameigh Broley were here. Her assistance would be helpful."

...Just wonderin if it would b ok 4 a brief scene showing what's happend 2 another group of humans, and how owned they've gotten by the Elite Ultranationalists, with them being built up as characters with distinct and in-depth personalities, rather than your usual gun-ho marines

I was thinking a large group of human soldiers, with an Elite Guide getting ambushed and all but two dying, who could later be encountered by the main guys briefly, before either dying or leaving.

Also this scene could b used 2 introduce an upcoming enemy the main characters will eventually face, e.g: Ultranationalist Elites emotionless field commander.

I was thinkin of a 7 minute scene, a few minutes to build up the characters, the rest to kill them off. If u guys r ok wit this idea, then I wouldnt mind expandin it (Not the time it'll take/ more a indepth script for the scene)...thnx

Also I've been thinking of a human traitor (I know we hav the merc but this is different) I was thinkin of a captured marine, one who's shown to now be in a pitiful and cowardly state after torture, who tells the Sangheli what he knows about the locations and plans the main characters may use, though he appears Weak and Powerless, hopefully i was thinking of eventually having him snap, and hold many of the Elite leaders hostage (Maybe long enough for the main characters 2 get out of a situation) and have him desperatly attempt to hold control over them, before being torn apart by gaurds.

This is more a bunch of guys working on something than an official wiki project or what not. --Dragonclaws(talk) 08:43, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
To be honest, I'm guessing this is somewhat-or-less an independent project -- I looked at Dragonclaws's idea and was inspired to go forward with production. All Halopedians and HFFW Wikians are welcome to join, but if the rest of y'all want to start on a second machinima that's fine too. However, if you want to endorse Common Denominator as an 'official' project that'd be welcomed too. :P Regards, RelentlessRecusant 'o the Halopedia Team GDI2.jpg TALKMESSAGE 16:46, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Meh... I'm fine with it... the scripts actually pretty darn good. More or less wonderin if u guys had contemplated it bein outvoted... didnt realise this was outside the votes.... though no1 seems 2 b noticing them now anyways... Just Another GruntConverse 11:02, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
I started it on my own initiative because Dragonclaws's was the one I was most interested in, so thus I started it with my own initiative; I've never said it was an 'official' project. =] Regards, RelentlessRecusant 'o the Halopedia Team GDI2.jpg TALKMESSAGE 14:23, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

I have a capture card

Hello friends! This is eatpie from halopedia (im a friend of RR) and i own a capture card. I just need to dig it up, but i have alot of experience with film, and id be willing to capture, direct, edit if you want. (I direct movies IRL, legit movies, not just crap ones.) Email me at skype: eatpie47 LIVE: eatpie47

I should have it in a few days, we moved and i need to open up some boxes :P


update on the card!

Found it! woohoo! Im thinking we should try some filming this weekend and i can capture it and edit it! I use Final Cut Studio 2 for my editing so its very professional. You guys can contact me via: Email me at skype: eatpie47 LIVE: eatpie47

Yes! This means that we can go trough with the idea! Great! Add your GT to the list and youre in! [[User:Vtar 'Kakumee|Vtar]] 20:28, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Capture card? We don't need a capture card for Halo 3!--0'Ma11ey| Say mean things| My evil devices| My kills] 17:38, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Actually, I can't figure out how to download from the Geevee site. So, I think we do. --Dragonclaws(talk) 19:04, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Guys, how is this going to be organized? Everyone is trying to figure out what is going to happen when you get the capture card. Rainbow_Dash.pngRainbow Dash (Talk)(Contribs)  

Summary, so far

I just thougt that someone should make a summary of what we have done so far, and since I have not done much for the machinema I took the responability.


It has been suggested to use some of the Halo music from all three of the games, wich should be good if we try to create a feel of it actually being in the Halo universe, but also some other suggestions, mainly with melodical themes.

Level Design

H*bad has said he could do the level designing in forge, and Canis Lupus added that CT (Not sure who that is) appereantly was working on that.


After the vote (Or is it not over?) Dragonclaws idea had the most votes and RelentlessRecusant started working on a script about it, called Common Denominator.

Voice acting

This will be done over Skype or any other way you can record and send your addition to the machinema.


Many Suggestions For characters have been made, some including voice overs only. I would be very happy is someone could come up with an idea how sort out the ones that will and will not be in the Machinema.


Allright, here it's kinda empty. A few is up, but we need more. Use Relenteless'/Dragonclaws' idea and make some cool scenes and nice quotes from that.


Finally, eatpie has got a capture we can use for the filming and capturing. He also has a good editing program so, if he's up for the task, he will get to do that. Are you willingly to do that, eatpie? Additionally, for the Credits it has been suggested that we used screenshot from the machinema.

That was pretty much everything. For more info check the forum. If you want so say something about what I wrote, something you don't agree with or want to add, don't be afraid to do so.

So, there has been a fair amount of progress. Okay. Thats really good progress, especally with so few people on-board for the project. I am still working on making some good halo-mix music. If anyone want it (for fanon purposes), i will be happy to send it to you or if there is another way, please tell me. Rainbow_Dash.pngRainbow Dash (Talk)(Contribs)

well, if we use your Characters, of course we'll be able to use the scenes! Vtar Talk to me 15:24, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
