A group of optimistic Halo fans are looking to raise half a million dollars to fund a fan movie detailing the creation of Noble Team. They intend to produce a movie/series titled Halo: Team Noble that will tie up the plot holes created by the introduction of Noble team in Halo:Reach.
Seeing as how they're hoping to raise about fifty times what you might usually expect for a fan-movie, I figured they could use all the publicity they can get.
If you feel like helping out some fellow Halo fans then pop on over to their Kickstarter page to donate.
As always with a Kickstarter there's a tiered pledging structure:
$15 gets you a DVD of the finished movie/series
$35 gets you a signed Blu-Ray
$250 gets you a poster signed by the cast and crew
$1000 gets you a personalised Halo helmet (you can choose your own design)
$5000 gets you a speaking part in the film including flights to the set
$10000 gets you a full suit of Spartan Armour and an Executive Producer credit.
There are some nice rewards there, but considering the mammoth budget they're seeking it's likely they won't get all the backing they need from this Kickstarter. That's not to say we shouldn't show them a bit of solidarity and pledge them a small amount though, eh?
$500k would require 33,000 people to pledge $15 to get the DVD. That's more than the total number who've pledged against the current Kickstarter flavour-of-the-month "Ouya", so they've definitely got their work cut out for them to hit their target.
If you're the generous sort, or maybe you've been desperate to know the origin story of Noble Team then head on over to their Kickstarter page and pledge!
And remember, as Director Alex May says in his fundraiser video, $500k sounds like a lot, but Transformers cost $200m.
[For reference, you could make Napoleon Dynamite, Paranormal Activity, Catfish & Blair Witch Project for $500k and still have change.]
