Stunning GTA V short film shows off potential of the in-game director mode
Since GTA V’s PC release, its director mode has given players the potential to create videos from gameplay footage they’ve recorded using the in-game recording software. I, for one, am happy that this feature hasn’t just been used to make videos of pedestrians being mown down by a clown with a minigun (as fun as that may sound).
Enter ‘The Two Scotsmen - Hoodoo Operator’, a youTube movie maker who’s known for his cinematic Battlefield 4 videos. Let him loose in GTA V and you have a short film worthy of a release at Cannes. What’s most impressive, isn’t just the jaw-dropping visuals we’re treated to from Rockstar’s engine, but the way in which Hoodoo_Operator has used the director mode to frame and craft each scene. Everything from the cinematography to the behaviour of the ‘actors’ is expertly manipulated and is a testament to the power and flexibility of Rockstar’s editor. More of this please.
