One of the downsides to broadcasting is that sometimes, no matter how much you like something, you have to cut it for time.
Such was the case the our story on today’s Morning Edition about Halo 4. As part of the research for the piece I had an excellent discussion with Stewart Hendler, the director of the webseries Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn which can be found on Machinima Prime. Hendler is an on-the-rise director who was turned his career on its head. He’s gone from making feature films inside the studio system that got a modest amount of attention to making web series like Forward Unto Dawn and H+ The Digital Series that cannot be ignored.
Hendler and I spoke at the NPR West Studios in Culver City.
