My name is Matt Tornero, and I am about to enter production on a machinima short I am directing called The Search. I am looking for some Halo 5 users to assist in the production of this film, both in front of and behind the camera.Premise: A lowly soldier in charge of patrolling an evacuated city discovers a portal to another place, where society’s wrongs have been righted and peace reigns. Through the people they meet and the actions they take, the soldier must make a choice between staying in this perfect world or returning to the role they once played.Those who sign up will be given IMDB credit on the film. The following positions are needed:
