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.

Deep inside me, I could feel something different, a gentle and warm whisper telling me that I am…alive.
Today, my muse was an android. This video was created using the song “Cry” by Thomas Bergersen and the teaser trailer for Detroit: Become Human by Quantic Dream. I wasn’t aware of this game until I went hunting for this trailer, and it led me to a fascinating story of how Detroit: Become Human came to be. First, there was this short film, which was created entirely using a video game engine. Then that led to the production of this trailer that spawned the creation of this video game. Then I found it and set it to Thomas Bergersen’s “Cry” from the album Illusions.
