The gang at T.A.G., San Francisco team up with director Rupert Sanders and Stan Winston Studios again to create another epic commercial for Halo.


To bring the story to life, ODST was shot in various locations throughout Eastern Europe in underground caves and in one case, and old nuclear reactor...battling over 100 degree temperatures and adverse weather conditions. The epic production brought some of the Halo 3 Believe team back together again--with Stan Winston's team working their hand carved masterpieces, and Rupert Sanders directing, the Halo ODST film is another in a line of entertaining journey's through the lives of Halo's heroes.
