    Finish the Fight


    For my fellow Halo addicts our there... Check out the short films by Neil Blomkamp here.  He has done an amazing job of bringing it to life.  Gives me hope for the movie, I was blown away! Yes there are Warthogs, Pelican Dropships and even Covenant Brutes.  Watch closely and you can see the Brutes firing off the Needle Gun!

    Oh, and it is also done in Silverlight (1.0 RC1). =) Hence you will get the nice HD quality stream, bookmark navigation, and also fullscreen. Be sure to View Source to check out some of the JavaScript they are using to control playback.  After all what better way to learn some Silverlight than by turning the tide for the UNSC!
