Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn receives Emmy Nomination
We have done it! Something video game related has been nominated for an Emmy! To go along with the Grammy the industry has already won, we now have an Emmy nomination for the Main Title sequence from Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. The industry won a Grammy back in 2010 with “Baba Yetu” from Civilization IV, composed by Christopher Tin. Along side Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, nerd and geek favorite, Game of Thrones is up for several nominations as well. The third season of Game of Thrones is by far my favorite and was incredibly well done and very powerful. We will find out if Forward Unto Dawn wins its nomination on September 22nd. If you have not check out the series yet, please do. It has a couple of ruff acting spots, but for the budget they had, it is simply the best translation of a video game to film out there. You can check out all episodes in two parts at Machinima’s YouTube page, or you can pick up the Blu-Ray or DVD at a local retailer. If you have Netflix, the title is on their as well in its entirety. Hooray for gaming! Hooray for Halo! Hooray for progress! Sorry, that was kind of unprofessional. Congratulations to everyone involved with the making of the series, would love to see a second one.
