This Fan-Made Mass Effect Film is Shaping Up Nicely

The folks at The Sneaky Zebra are making a short film based on the Mass Effect universe, and have sent along three new character trailers for the game. The one up top is for a renegade character named "Hale," which I would imagine (or at least hope!) is a reference to voice actor Jennifer Hale, who plays the female version of the game's protagonist Commander Shepard. (You may recall I had an opportunity to interview Hale at PAX this year).

They've also made a couple of other character intro videos: One for a gent namedMeer and another for a smuggler named Defoe. The woods and look in that second one remind me of the woods of Kobol from Battlestar Galactica, for some reason.

Respect to these guys for putting a lot of work into something purely out of love for the game. I'm looking forward to seeing the full short once it launches.

Clearly, they aren't rocking the kind of budget that, say, Fallout: Nuka Break or Dragon Age Redemption had; however, it looks like it has a lot of potential. Also, overall, I think it's too early to tell what the final product will look like. For now, I'll simply give my respect to them for having the love and will to put together something like this. It's easy to bash Fan Films, but, often, people who do never bother to even try to do it better themselves despite indicating that they could. I wish them the best of luck. Hope it scores big with the ME Fan Community. Also, Ms. Roberts is rather pretty.
