Fan Vids Round-up: GTA Online Cunning Stunts Showcases, When Nature Calls & More

Posted 4 weeks, 2 days ago | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Games

The latest collection of Fan Videos showcases folks working wonders with GTA Online: Cunning Stunts, some of Los Santos' finest auteurs continuing to dazzle with the Rockstar Editor and more. This round-up features a beautifully-shot piece that will leave you wanting to run straight to Vespucci Beach, new music from an old friend, and a graphic Western homage. Check out these and more visual treats below.


GTA 5 - Cunning Stunts DLC | Vehicle Showcase #2 by EvolveStunting

Last seen at the Newswire in February with some impressive BMX trickery, the Evolve gang is back at it with their second Cunning Stunts vehicle showcase. Having already released one Cunning Stunts showcase, watch this time around as these stunters take it to the limit and get top level performances out of the ETR1, RE-7B, BF400 and all the rest.


Low Tide (GTA 5 Rockstar Editor Machinima) by Logic-Films

As a collective, Logic-Films are known primarily for stylish showcases of GTA Online vehicles. This time around, editor Drowsy mixes things up with a tribute to summer. Set to XY & O's song of the same name, the video - according to the group's blog - was "inspired by different photographers/video makers who do very beautiful lifestyle/travel work." With mesmerizing sunrises, enticing waves and shots of Los Santos beach bums in their natural habitat, the warm and sunny vibes of this clip make for a perfect epilogue in the last fleeting days of summer.


Power Unlimited - GTA V Rockstar Editor by K Mountilla

K Mountilla sent us this tribute to the vehicles of Los Santos, captured during a PS4 car meet and sporting a deep roster of cars and motorcycles from GTA Online. K combines sexy close-ups, first-person POV and shots that change velocity, dancing along to the soundtrack. Particularly exhilarating is this lightning-fast sequence from behind the wheel.


GTA V - When Nature Calls (Rockstar Editor) by Duggy

Previously featured at the Newswire, for his use of GTAV as an inspired backdrop for Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot soliloquy - this time Duggy addresses the seemingly innocent and victimless act of relieving oneself in the woods. Watch as Michael peacefully breaks the seal, only for it to give him the scare of a lifetime. Think the Fighting Trees from The Wizard of Oz, only weirder...


Mission Music [Original] by SquidPhysics

Long-time Rockstar theme song cover wizard Squid Physics, known for epic one-man-band versions of the music from GTA III, GTAV and everything in between, has decided to branch out into the world of originals. First releasing the theme from an imagined GTA set in Las Venturas in June, Squid then released this music which is supposed to be the accompaniment to an imaginary Grand Theft Auto desert mission. Broken into three parts - "a stealth bit, firefight and getaway" - this piece at times has hints of Middle Eastern, Western and even free jazz influences. Also worth a listen is Squid's recent Vice City-inspired theme, which uses the original as a starting point and takes it to maximum levels of funkiness.


GTA V - Ricochet [Rockstar Editor Short] by Zadrium

The REBL Crew's Zadrium is responsible for this homage to the Western film genre. Kicking things off with "Man with a Harmonica" (off the staple Once Upon a Time in the West and by Spaghetti Western soundtrack king Ennio Morricone), it's evident from the start that the standoff won't end in a handshake, even when the soundtrack shifts to Andrea Bocelli's "Con te Partirò," a song with a rich cinematic history of its own.


Lampshades (PC Rockstar Editor) by Lu Iggy

Modest Mouse fan Lu Iggy took inspiration from the video to their 2014 hit "Lampshades on Fire" and the result is an excellent reimagining. Mr. Iggy, who's The Raid made it into a previous Newswire round-up this past March (definitely check out Part 2 here), uses a similar cutting style as the original and takes it a step further with all sorts of unsavory characters.


GTA Online: Sumo by Channel V

Inspired by the traditional Japanese sport of Sumo itself, Channel V's tribute to the GTA Online Sumo Mode features two Vapid Slamvans wrestling it out for supremacy. The producers put some brilliant touches on this one - from the use of the Oriental Theater location in Downtown Vinewood to the Eastern-flavored soundtrack and clever nods to Shiko (the routine stamping of the legs by Sumo wrestlers for intimidation), to the full grappling bout.
