1. I was working on one of my other projects, fortunatly I have completed the CGI scenes for the episodes that need it and now I am spending my time working on the blade!
2. Now, today I would have something nice up for you guys, however I was quite sick and ummm, I kinda screwed up on the scene which is a slight delay in the overall process.
3. Finally, all of my time now shall be dedicated to the blade unless some other project pops up 0_o, and that is a 50/50 chance, but just know that I'll be working on the blade now.
When I get something done, I'll put up a WIP. But I have also been learning alot so I can make the CGI all the better for the audience!
Until another update from me or Aglor, have a happy new year!

...Finally gotten back on track! The crew of The Blade has been on vacation playing Halo 3 for the past few weeks, and that vacation ended (for most of us, at least) last Friday. On Sunday, filming resumed, and some great warthog/ghost footage was captured. More filming will be done this Saturday, and there's more! At my last check, The Blade is the last Halo 2 machinima in production! Now, I'm not 100% sure about that, but until I find another machinima, or someone tells me otherwise (send this information to firstname.lastname@example.org), I will continue to call The Blade the last of Halo 2 machinima, and the last of an era. Quite a title, don't you think?

First up, the questions. These are from Spartan 501 on the Codex Forums. Why the Codex, you ask? Because they're special, that's why. Okay, on to the Q&A.
- How soon will the blade be done? I'm shooting for September 25 to have filming done, but no exact date has been set.
- Can you give us any hints to the storyline? Well, not really. It might ruin the effect of seeing the movie. However, I can give you the background on one of the characters (see below).
- This one is for Mcdoogleh: What is the status of the CGI? (Answered by our good ol' CG guy) Since I am redoing ALL of the CGI, I have gotten one scene redone XD. But don't worry, it will be done quicker XD.
Pretty awsome, huh? I think so, at least. Anyway, on to the bio. Which character will it be? Trey Smith, Alpha, the High General, maybe even Nom Sut-Dun. Who is it? Drum roll, please.
It is Commander Corona! So far you guys have heard nothing of Commander James Corona, an ODST and old friend of our main hero, Trey Smith. But here he is, or at least his biography. What I can reveal, at least.
Name: Commander James Martin Corona
Born: October 6, 2518
Early History: Commander James Martin Corona was born October 6, 2518 to John and Jackie Corona (deceased). At the age of six, James began his schooling at the Shaw Acadamy. He graduated from the Academy in 2536 at the age of 18. His parents are killed by Covenant forces while vacationing on the planet Rayon, provoking James to join the United Nations Space Command Navy.
Military History: James Corona rose in rank quickly, after several engagements with Covenant forces, and Human rebels. He left the Navy after reaching the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He then joined his childhood friend Commander Trey Smith in the United Nations Space Command Special Operations Branch (seal above) in 2542. Corona served with Smith on several occasions, the last of which was on New London. During an operation on New London, Corona was wounded and hospitalized. He left the Service one year later in 2547 and rejoined the Navy. He fought in several more battles, and achieved the rank of Commander. He is currently stationed on the planet Yarous VII in the Theleta System, operations commander of the forces in Victoria City and under the direct command of Colonel George Lock.
That's all for this update. If anyone has any more questions they want answered in the next update, either post them on the Codex forums in The Blade topic, or send them to Aglor123@gmail.com with a subject line reading "The Blade Questions". Any questions are welcome, so don't hesitate to ask if you want to know something.

Dawn Under Heaven was also upgraded with honeycombed Titanium A and having a total of 40 archer pods which fire 5 archer missiles at a time when running at top power. The ship is quite manuoeverable in combat situations. She is currently under the command of Captain Diez, a capable captain who was well known for saving Admiral Jason Sonic during Harvest.
