    I have the best idea for a commercial for Halo 4. We open with a panning shot of a spectacular cave filled with glowing shit, like lava but also luminescent moss and crystal formations (who knows why they’re glowing. Nobody cares). Choral voices sing a string of vowels. Or maybe there are lyrics, but they’re sung in such a way that the vocalist might be at the dentist. Whatever. 
    As the shot pans left and down into a central, circular cavern, we see Cortana, who is invisible where she would be wearing clothing. She is straddling an 8-foot tall, hugely broad and veiny stalagmite, which looks slicked by fanboy saliva. She slides up and down the turgid length, propelled by.. computers or something.
    Cut to shots of alien heads exploding and rad premium pre-order gear.

      I like where you’re going with this. You just forgot to mention that it has to be shot in the kind of desaturated tones popularized by “Battlestar Galactica”, with lots of grays and blacks. Also needs images of people in uniform looking tense, rapid jump cuts to random explosions and armored figures glimpsed in flickering light.

      But then that’s pretty much standard these days, so maybe you just took it as a given.

    Why do I  always love concept art better than the final product? I guess it’s the incomplete nature that lets me imagine infinite possibilities.
