Halo 5: Guardians Intro
This opening cinematic for Halo 5: Guardians takes us on a wild ride. After an exhilarating fall through a mid-air battlefield, we get to travel alongside the spartans as they ski their way down the slopes of a tumultuous war zone. Composed almost entirely of one long take, the team developed a sequence that was based on a solid, procedural pipeline that allowed for iteration and more automated integration.
