I am making a machinima movie with Halo 2 and I need advice. I've gotten the whole script written out, most of the equipment needed to start filming, and I have the actors, but I have one problem: I dont know how to get the movie out in the open. sad.gif How can I get people to know about my movie without spending to much money?(preferably $50 or less)

Right now, there is a sniper rifle aimed at your head.

1. Find Cheap host (or even better FREE)
2. Get a site (with forum if possible)
3. Start telling people on other halo/machinima forums
4. wait and see tongue.gif

Modded Hosting (Free/Cheap)

soccerboi11 CS is absolutely correct about the need to get the word out. I've done some fanfiction myself, and I can tell you that getting involved in the community is really important. Review and comment upon the works of others (constructive criticism, of course!), post on message boards, and just generally make your presence known. Releasing a trailer probably wouldn't hurt either.

Check out my Fanfiction.Net Page at:

"Mighty Warlord Vermek Skab is dead, killed in a terrible accident involving a loaded crossbow and an exploding donkey." Grey Seer Thanquol, Skavenslayer
"I need to save a planet just to have a girlfriend?" Vergyl Tantor, Dune: The Bulterian Jihad
"Says 'hit any key'. Well, which one's the any key?" UED Marine, Starcraft: Brood War
Better to say nothing at all, than to say nothing using many words.
