It isn’t every day you see a cool, well-constructed film crafted from video game footage but this GTA V movie trailer achieved just that. Check out the short film below, and take a comprehensive look at what GTA V’s game engine has to offer. The filmmaker used a modded version of Grand Theft Auto V, but it’s still a pretty cool video.
You’re looking at the work of Los Angeles-based filmmaker Matt MacDonald, here. The short film, called ‘Not Normal,’ is a movie about a string of frightening Los Santos murders. The story is intriguing, and its dark vibe definitely highlights the game’s gritty feel. While GTA V has a slew of options capable of making an explosive, long-haul epic, the filmmaker relied on its darker undertones, creepy scenes and hyper-realistic lighting to make an impact.
Even better: The film takes advantage of excellent voice acting to bring the film to new heights. Because the GTA V engine can be molded to meet a number of digital “actor” needs, Matt MacDonald was able to mold an entire cast to the selected dialogue. The film is absolutely stunning, and it’s a testament to how far someone can go if they’re handling a modded GTA V copy. Sure, you’ll find the typical gunshots, car chases and action-packed adventures, but you should watch the film for its noir-type vibe, gritty realism and slow-roast action.
As per the GTA V tradition, you’ll definitely see some blood. The film tones down GTA V’s gory splendor, however, wrapping it up nicely with some juicy car chases.
