The Halo CE Chronicles Season 3 trailer

At the conclusion of season two I received numerous emails: Some praising the series and others asking if this was the end of the story. At the time I honestly didn’t know if there would be more of Commander Harrington and his AI Andrea. The story, you see, was not about heroics and epic battles but about finding oneself while the word around you was in upheaval. It was a story about less than average individuals faced with insurmountable odds and finding strength in each other. The quotation from episode 18 says it all:
No human relation gives one possession in another - every two souls are absolutely different. In friendship or in love, the two side by side raise hands and together find what on cannot reach alone." - Kahlil Gibran
The story was complete. Both characters had come to terms with their deficiencies overcome all odds and found purpose in each other. And that was the story I wanted to tell. In October of last year one viewer posted a comment that "I'm starting to have a hard time believing that the station commander isn't becoming a true Spartan now" and it got me to thinking. I had gone to great pains with subtle hints within the story line and finally with the character himself in episode 16 just saying "I am not really a Spartan." to get people to understand the subtext of the story. Sometimes it takes a two-by-four for people to get subtlety. But it made me think that there really could be more to the development of the characters. After all Andrea is only a one year old AI exploring the world she was never meant to see and the Commander is a military officer: One who has been scarred by the battle that destroyed his world. So I set to work and fleshed out a story and then contacted the author of the maps I wanted to use to see if he would assist in some "extra" features. In November thanks to the talents of Matt (Arteen) McGlone the maps and assets were in place to start filming. So yes there will be a full season three of The Halo CE Chronicles. This season though we will not have episodes per say. Season three is a single feature over 80 minutes long that will be broken up into parts for download. It is one story, a story that will once again focus on the characters and their personal development. Once again I will set out to try and prove that "Good Halo machinima need not be about blowing things up." You can download the teaser trailer in WMP9, QuickTime and Streaming Flash formats in the season three the video section of the website..
ps: Before you write to ask: no we do not need any assistance. the feature is nearly finished and we are all set with what we have. Thank you.
