GTA Fan Vids: Bird Stunting, Things You Don’t See in Superhero Movies & More

Posted on February 13 2015, 1:39pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

This week, check out some inspired new productions from the creative 8-Bit Bastard troupe as well as Commandoflauge's new machinima superhero parody filmed in Los Santos - plus the latest jaw-dropping feats from the stunting scene.
 


GTA 5 Bird Stunt Montage | Animal Stuntage Spoof by 8-BIT BASTARD
It’s stupid pet tricks – Los Santos Style. A new group of stunting naturals have swooped in to show all would-be ace pilots how it's done. Whether it's flying through a narrow parking garage or simply eyeing up the bread crumbs falling off of your Bleeder Burger, these birds are worth watching.

GTA 5 - Stunt Montage - "A Stunters Path" by Hazardous
Hazardous has wowed before with dynamic stunt montages, collaborative all-star videos featuring fellow daredevil and friend Kwebbelkop, and the more lighthearted Shit GTA 5 People Say! series. Now he's back with a vengeance, sporting a fresh arsenal of sick tricks (now featuring first-person vantages) to celebrate hitting 200K Subscribers on his YouTube channel. There are many impressive tricks in this presentation but Hazard's full backflip into a spot-on sticky bomb helicopter takedown near the two minute mark simply has to be seen to be believed.

Things You Don't See in: Superhero Movies - Part 1 & Part 2 by Commandoflauge
The Commandoflauge squad offers up some seriously silly super-hero inspired outtakes. This hilarious original machinima series follows the trials and misadventures of a shadowy, vigilante known as "Pigman", exposing the less glamorous sides of superhero work such as answering awkward costume material billing inquiries from Maze Bank’s fraud prevention department and the realities of executing those dramatic in-the-nick-of-time rescues.
 


GTA 5 THE CAR (1977) Movie Trailer by gigerbrick
This is certainly one of the weirder selections of the movie trailer recreations we’ve featured here at the Newswire – but just as impeccably produced. Horror film connoisseur gigerbrick brings us this shot-for-shot recreation of the trailer for eerie late 70’s cult flick “The Car” - where an unmanned black sedan terrorizes a small Southwestern town in a seemingly unstoppable rampage.

Fan Vids: Jaw-Dropping BMX Stunts from ErasableNinja, Santa Monica VS Del Perro POV and More

Posted on January 27 2015, 9:43am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

This week’s round-up of recommended viewing from the wide world of GTA video creators on YouTube showcases avid videographers using Los Santos as their creative backdrop. From action movies, to intricate stunts, to artful real-life versus game-world comparisons, check out the fantastic array of new fan creations below.
 



GTA 5 - Best of 2014 BMX Stunt Montage by ErasableNinja
Erasable's latest montage showcases some of his finest work to date. As well as insane chained grind combos and wall rides on just about every surface available, ridiculous power slides through impossibly tiny gaps will really have your eyes popping. The epic over-the-bridge backflip onto a moving truck bed at the 56 second mark is a stunt for the ages.
 



GTAV Car Meet and Drift / PS4 by 88:88 Productions
GTA Online car meets are a hugely popular free mode activity for casual vehicle enthusiasts and dedicated car clubs alike. This super stylish video of one such rendezvous hosted by a Representative of the PS4 Car Meets Crew is capped off by a spirited spin-cycle drifting session at an empty basketball court in which the front-wheel-drive Blista Compact makes a notable cameo appearance.

Trigger List - GTA 5 Online Machinima Short Film by Angros Creations
Angel Rosario's action-packed short film depicts "a professional hit man named Marcus Novak taking on the task of eliminating a narcotics dealer and smuggler named Roy Parker, who betrayed him a few years ago during a contract killing." With a slick cinematic presentation, we're hoping to see more episodes from Marcus Novak's "Trigger List" in the near future.
 



Like A Flying Boss (Skydiving GTA 5 Stunt Montage) by RedKeyMon
Back at it from the stunting scene, renowned fan favorite and Nomad Union alumni, RKM returns with a serious skydiving montage. Going above and beyond the typical dives, RKM flat-out raises the bar here. We won't give anything away but if the jaw-dropping passthrough in the grand finale dive doesn't make you a believer, nothing will.

GTA 5 Santa Monica VS Real Life POV by Brett Rosenberg
In a poetic and serene presentation, bicyclist and actor Brett Rosenberg uses a GoPro and a game controller to intercut a leisurely ride along the Del Perro Pier boardwalk with its IRL counterpart in Santa Monica, CA. With cleverly, almost surreally edited pedestrian dialogue audio, enjoy the vistas, scenery and the daily comings and goings of the denizens of these dual beachfront worlds.

The latest round-up of eye-catching excellence from the GTA fan community features a recreation of iconic scenes from a Kubrick classic, a couple of videos that artfully convey the contrast between the mean streets of Los Santos and the picturesque scenery of Blaine County, as well as some other great clips we've spotted.

GTA Online - A Clockwork Orange by GTA Series Videos 
The droogs at GTA Series Videos bring us this impressive homage to many of the classic scenes in Kubrick's film adaptation of A Clockwork Orange. Especially ingenious is the recreation of the film's driving scene via a creative 'green screen' approach.

The Beauty of Blaine County & The Streets of Los Santos by SA96HD
A study of the two very distinct sides of Southern San Andreas, this pair of videos from SA96HD capture both the dark underbelly of Los Santos and the comely countryside of Blaine County.

Here, 8-BIT BASTARD uses the tilt-shift technique to turn Los Santos into a battleground for tiny toy soldiers.

When a botched break-in ends in an explosive public disaster the two find themselves on the run from Federal agents as the "most wanted" pair in Los Santos.

A rusty Tornado rests on the dock at Lago Zancudo. Taken by colognemitch

Kokonitos does an excellent job here of capturing the colorful flora residing in Paleto Cove.

This wide-open beachside parking lot off of Red Desert Ave is a popular spot for car show enthusiasts to meet up and compare rides. Taken by ProVelvet

A subtle application of shadow and light creates this intimate and candid portrait. Taken by Kokonitos

Trevor's idea of interior design leaves much to be desired. This shot by ProVelvet, however, does not.

The Tivoli Cinema box office seems like an unlikely display case for a Shitzu Hakuchou, nevertheless quaid86 makes it work rather nicely.

 oO-GTA-FREAK-Oo focuses in on the rear emblems of this stunning Grotti Turismo R.

Auryn_ dubbed this one "Heaven is a Halfpipe" when it was posted in the Newswire comments of a previous Snapmatic gallery.

Quaid86 is going to have one whopper of a fish story after reeling this one in.

ChaosZake captures the really cool effect of a silhouette against a nearly shattered windshield.

LambentBunny seemed to be in the right place at the right time to frame this painted on quality scene in the Paleto Forest.

After a long day in Los Santos, we imagine SadCrazyman enjoys a sip of this fine port in his West Winewood (er.. Vinewood) apartment.

This ominous looking shot by former Snapmatic Contest winner ZazDillinger is simply titled, "Promising".

A solid view of the rain pooling along the asphalt in Palomino Ave from Kokonitos.

This rough looking character blasts off a round from his AP pistol. Taken by EaziG-

MrTohoto captures this biker popping a front wheelie... with flare.

We're not entirely sure how these Blaine County locals made their way to Vespucci Beach but they seem to enjoy soaking up the sun and sand, just the same. Taken by Banjabi

quaid86 went for a slightly unconventional approach here, creating a cool and nearly seamless two paneled shot.

Still Lifes, Car Shows and More Amazing Snapmatics from GTAV on PS4 & Xbox One

Posted on December 3 2014, 4:34pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

We continue to be amazed by the deluge of impressive Snapmatic shots pouring in to the GTAV section of the Social Club. The community continues to outdo themselves with these picturesque shots taken on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Scroll down the page for a sampling of spectacular images that include unique perspectives and fresh takes on some familiar locales.

In the two shots above Deltakeks captures an old-timey nautical vibe in the area appropriately dubbed "Catfish View".

s_morrison95 snapped this precocious looking black pug preparing for a daily jog with his owner.

HandsomeHustlerr's Imponte Dukes is all ready for the car show in the cheekily titled, "Open For Business".

Some Snapmatic photos have an almost postcard-like quality to them, this one from LambentBunny fits the bill.

BLK95TA uses the new red underglow vehicle mod and a custom plate to really drive home the nostalgia.

There's a familiar, gritty, 80's film noir feeling to this excellent studio backlot shot in Downtown Vinewood. Taken by JimnyCGRL.

SilverFox1 presents us with an excellent close-up view of Franklin's turntables.

Stunning rays of sunlight spill across the front window and dashboard as this Hotknife pulls onto Innocence Boulevard. Taken by Banjabi.

Deltakeks' topless Invetero Coquette Classic convertible idles comfortably on the grass in a Vinewood Hills park.  

We get the sneaking suspicion that lethal138... of the Hells Angels America Crew isn't signaling "you're number one" to rival MCs in this shot.

IVY_JO3 shows off an array of color choices at the starting line in this pic, with an up-close on an emerald green Shitzu Hakuchou.

HandsomeHustlerr continues with his "open" treatments - here it's a jet black Declasse Stallion.

Out for a casual Sunday drive or perhaps something more perilous? The passenger's bandanna says it all. Taken by R1CHIEC.

A modern customized take on a classic whip, at the Burton based LS Customs. Bonus points for SilverFox1's custom plate.

WetworkMerc's simple application of a soft black and white filter makes this subtle scene fit for framing.

This Vapid Hotknife glides through the air in Rockford Hills. Taken by colognemitch.

DTizMusiK utilizes the in-game meme options to create a perfect still frame for his favorite YouTube music channel.

A beautiful all around shot by kingcozzie, but check out the detail in the cracked earth's mirror reflection off the hood.

Officially, this was taken on the coast near Tongva Hills by LambentBunny but if you squint your eyes just a bit it feels like the perfect "wish you were here" sentiment from the Ocean View Hotel in Vice City. 

The highly detailed contrast of the foliage here against the seemingly painted on silhouette of the LS skyline really caught our eye. Taken by kingcozzie 

Deltakeks goes out of his way to show that there's more than just roaming sharks cutting their top fins through the choppy waters of the Pacific. 

up-daz's pristine, white-walled Bravado Buffalo looks rather comfortable nestled in amongst the reeds here.

Has R1CHIEC captured an intimate exchange here or simply given us a sneak preview of the latest shot for a Le Chien high-end fragrance ad?

Chrome finish may not feel like the appropriate selection for every vehicle class but it's an absolute match for this Truffade Z-Type. Taken by Yanochkina

Violate You Get It Crew Leader Black Shogun utilizes a bit of forced perspective to get his point across.

HairyHole is living the "HIGHLIFE" with the custom license plate earned in the High Life Snapmatic Contest back in May. 

We'd be highly interested to find out where exactly in East Vinewood ChaosZake took this excellent shot of a 9F Cabrio reflecting off the glass in front of an onlooker.

quaid86 captured this rather candid shot of a LS Custom's mechanic servicing a fierce looking Shitzu Hakuchou.

The bold application of red, running adjacent to the mysterious IAA building makes this one taken by cyfly030 particularly striking.
