    As a massive Halo fan it kills me to hear Niell talk about what could have been if that movie was allowed to run its course!

    I have always liked both dude soup and filmhaus as well as its previous renditions because its a chance to peek behind a curtain, so to speak, and get a look at what the funhaus guys are like when they aren't in character. I might be the only one but I enjoy watching them be super funny in all their videos, and yet share their honest and educated opinions on relevant topics; this is a nice change from everyone else on the internet who just shout like neanderthals (with exceptions of course). That being said, I wasn't really a fan of the interview. It just wasn't a topic I found interesting and that's likely why, perhaps if it was on a topic I was educated on things would be different. However I do remember Adam noting that this was the direction he wanted to show to go, and I appreciate that the funhaus team is trying new things and changing their own format. the mark of true failure is when people stop trying new things.

    okay I've been saying this for years MAKE CORTANA THE MAIN CHARACTER. People keep saying oh MC doesn't talk then hey just make Cortana the main character, she literally in his head and can be a perfect guide/voice for the story and she'll make non fans care about MC. She could also outline the spartan project and Halsy choosing the spartans (and other things chief wouldn't know about) and even tell other stories from around the universe by her hacking into ONI and other things!!! We could have the entire first contact story from Harvest and Johnson in there ONI report that cortana somehow revealed!!!

    Such an incredible interview, very educational and also seeing how big producers are listening and taking advice about the platform which Funhaus and Rooster Teeth have adapted is very intriguing and fascinating. Excellent work Funhaus can not praise you enough!

    The best part about interviews like this is that Funhaus obviously have their own personal interest and their own questions to ask, whereas mainstream media interviews typically ask the same questions to everyone, worded slightly differently like a madlibs, and ask the general and accessible questions the mass audience wants. Funhaus here felt a little more personal, as if an average-joe movie enthusiast finally got to ask a creative and talented person really deep and thoughtful questions about his work, and their perspective on his work.

    This was a pretty good interview, I really liked D9 and Elysium and I'm embarrased to admit that I didn't know that BlomKamp has his own studio. I will definitely take a look at his short films.


    Thanks Funhaus

    Interesting variation on Filmhaus. I can't say I'd want it like this every time, but something like this from time to time is nice.


    On the subject of a Halo movie, I'd actually rather they didn't do the Fall of Reach. The current environment is pretty saturated with super-human origin stories, and the MC's origin story has been reasonably touched on several times in various Halo mediums already. Maybe it's just me, but I think the First Strike novel would serve as a better basis for a Halo movie. That, or a re-imagined version of Halo:CE/The Flood, since that's kind of the series' most iconic story.

    • DarkTempler7 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      They've also already done a Fall of Reach movie, so it'd be redundant to do another.

    Would you guys consider adding the unedited version of this interview? I imagine not cause of everything that goes on behind the scenes

    I think this video was great! Between the great interview with Blomkamp to the great ad reads by Adam, I think that this type of ad read should be used more often, and I know it might be perceived as "lazy" but I do not think that is true at all! But anyway the interview was amazing! I hope you can get more cool people in the future!

  • Frostlandia FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    I think the absence of Lawrence (who can occasionally get caught up in smaller details) and the presence of someone that Funhaus has film respect for (so that they want to make an especially positive and interesting experience) have created the best episode of Filmhaus yet! 

    • divine_remix FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      2 months ago

      I agree but I am not sure how Lawrence reacts with a genuine interview. It is different to filming a review with your buddies than with an actual person in that production, maybe in this setting Lawrence would show a more genuine side than his FH persona. But I have to agree with your opinion that this group made the interview better with their dynamic. Also there is a point where too many people talking to Neill would be more counterproductive and clunkier.

    As much as the other Filmhaus episodes can be entertaining, this one was fascinating! I loved it and hope more like this are possible going forward.

    that was amazing! i loved landfall when it first showed up. its been a dream to have a Halo movie and i think he would be perfect to make it. If only he was given a change again. i also had purchased RAKKA when it came out on Steam as well... came with a lot of other videos too.... some cooking with Bill...? idk what that is.. ANYWAY! Thank you guys for getting an interview with him! best of luck with getting a lot of more projects off the ground!

      After this interview I went and watched Rakka and Firebase. They're both fucking awesome and super well done. They're also Free on Steam now apparently.

      Going back now to look at the store page, it does say free but i'm not sure if thats because i already bought it or not, it says "Buy this video as a gift for a friend" but theres no option to purchase again. when it first came out on steam, they had a few tiers to purchase to support them, and i think thats what i bought, i would love to see more

    This was so fantastic guys, thanks for putting this together!


    Oats reminds me a bit of what Joseph Gordon-Levitt is doing with HitRecord, where it's like an open source community of creators that throw all their resources in for free just to see what other people can do with them. I totally understand that it isn't exactly the most financially lucrative or stable idea but I'd love to see more of that sort of stuff in the future. I think what James said about young creators having access to that sort of material should be encouraging to anyone who wants to try out a model like this, just to see what all these brilliant new minds can pump out.
