Gametrailers has some cam footage
of Peter Jackson taking about the Halo movie. Ok, is it me or does he
look very hobbit like in the video? I mean that hair and the face...
put a ring around his neck and some ragged clothes and he'd be a
fine citizen of Middle Earth. I wouldn't be suprised if he stands in
front of the fireplace at night and repeats, "The ring is mine." over
and over again. Anyways, not much about the movie but if you're a PJ
fan and/or a Halo fan, check out the very short film footage.
In related news, this article on Stuff
talks about how WETA will be handling the special effects and the shop
is comprised of dual-processor IBM Blade servers running Fedora core
I wonder if Microsoft would try to convince Mr. Jackson to switch over
to Windows Server 2003. I know the movie's going to be using Massive
the animation tool that was used so successfully on the Lord of the
Rings triology for the battle scenes runs on Fedora so a switch to a
Windows platform wouldn't be possible in the time frame. But you gotta
figure Microsoft probably doesn't want to get the word out too much the
movie's sfx is being done on a free OS.
