Will Christiansen, a Bungie contracted animator currently working on Halo: Reach, posted an animation reel sharing examples of his recent work, including clips of what many speculate are rough bits from the upcoming Halo: Combat Evolved prequel.

The relevant scenes in the video show a UNSC soldier introducing himself to an enemy Jackal, and another soldier taking a shot to the stomach. The reel shows off footage from other projects, too, such as Lair, which Christiansen helped animate during his time at Factor 5.

Bungie announced Halo: Reach at E3 but revealed very little for the game aside from its planned release in Fall 2010. Gamers who purchase this Fall's Halo 3: ODST, however, will receive an invitation to Reach's open multiplayer beta.
