Dawn Under Heaven is a futuristic war film based on the Halo franchise. It takes place during the fall of planet Reach by the Covenant Armada in the year 2552. It’s a story about hope, teamwork, and sacrifice in light of overwhelming odds. And it’s a film created by those who care about it the most: diehard Halo fans.

The team behind Dawn Under Heaven is a dedicated one, putting in countless hours to research, prop-making, editing, effects creation, and branding to bring the Halo community a fan-film that everyone can be proud of. The film is entirely non-profit and funded by donations, our own pockets, and blood, sweat, and tears. We couldn’t do what we do without a wonderful support network of passionate super fans and professionals.
