Operation Chastity: Halo’s Grand Opus
What’s up, Truthers. It’s been awhile since I’ve graced the halls of GAMINGtruth, but I do so not only with a great sense of joy, but also with a great sense of epicness. I’ve been informed of something that I have thus far not shared with you and I take full responsibility of that, but the cause is so awesome, I needed to drop it to you post haste.
You could be forgiven if you’d never heard of Operation Chastity, but if you’ve ever been a Halo fan, you should. Why? It’s simple:
Operation Chastity is a film set in the Halo Universe made without Microsoft or any studios related to the franchise. It’s completely fan-made. They even make sure to let you know this on their website:
Operation Chastity is a completely independent work, not financed by or affiliated with the Microsoft Corporation, Microsoft Game Studios, Bungie Studios, Wingnut Films, Weta Studios, Ensemble Studios or any other parties linked to the Halo computer games. Operation Chastity is a completely original film set in the world of the Halo computer games and is being made as a non profit fan production – by fans, for fans. Halo, its related images and designs are Copyright of Microsoft Game Studios.
So why do I feel so horrible on being so late on offering up such awesomeness? Because there’s a tournament being done by the team. Here’s what the winners of the Operation Chastity Grand Tournament can take home:
- Sets of OC UNSC Marine patches
- Sets of original 18″x11″ OC concept art prints
- Copies of the OC teaser with lots of behind the scenes material
- Screen-used UNSC Marine combat shirts used in the film
- AND a special team prize – a Reach goodie bag filled with action figures, novels and a copy of Halo Legends!
When does the tournament start? Tomorrow. So, yea. I feel pretty horrible for not getting it to you sooner. (Sorry, Carocat!)
