Machinima/animated paintings, 2016

HALO is a series of machinima reenactments and re-visualizations of the military science fiction video game franchise, Halo. The characters are taken or modeled after avatars from Halo and the 2005 era 3D stripper game Dream Stripper.

Each piece moves the characters through found/stock "dying" animation loops. Koi, dining chairs, asteroids, guns, flowers, torches, pinball machines, pillows, and remnants of suburbia explode around them.

HALO is a series of 6 videos, each formatted for both vertical and horizontal video displays. The series was commissioned by Electric Objects, and is formated for the E01 here.

Each video is interchangable with the others, and all share the same title.
