Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn
Design, Original Programming
In 2012, Herzog & Co. partnered with 343 Industries and Microsoft Studios to produce the five-part digital series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn for Machinima. As the first-ever authorized scripted content set in the canon of the Halo universe, this series follows cadet Thomas Lasky as he trains at a military academy in 2526, 31 years before the events of Halo 4. Our Design Department worked closely with the filmmakers throughout the entire production creating early concept art, matte paintings, location models and creature effects. Once in post production, the Design team created all of the virtual screen displays, Helmet HUDS and motion graphics, totaling over 80 visual effects shots and trailer graphics in all.
