Fan made films are a common phenomena these days. Just search around Youtube and you will find literally hundreds of short fan made movies based on popular video game franchises. Some of those have appropriately high budgets and some are understandably based on low budgets.
We came across a superb fan made Halo film which was done on a personal budget of less than $200. The entire 4 minute movie was captured using Canon T3i and Sigma lens. The film is titled Halo: The Fallen (Prologue). It features some insane cinematography, visual fx, costuming, sound and prop design.
You can check about the guys who developed this film at their facebook fan page over here.
