Prepare to fall out of the sky. The opening cinematic to Halo 5 Guardians is one of the most intense beginnings I’ve seen in video game, and “Flight of the Silverbird” by Two Steps from Hell feels like it was written for it. The slow opening allows for light dialogue to set the stage, then the music builds to match their flight, the battle, and their escape. Out of all the things I’ve edited, this is definitely one of my favorites, and it’s currently my most popular video on YouTube.
