Rockstar Editor Powered Videos: "The Hunt", "GTA vs Predator", "Siren" & More

Posted 3 days, 16 hours ago | Author: R*N | Filed Under: Games

Rockstar Editor cinematic epics don't come more visually thrilling than in our latest fan-created video round-up; from the exploits of rogues and spies, to an episodic Mafioso family saga and a heady journey down Mount Chiliad via a GoPro-style view. Get ready for some excellently crafted narratives and visuals that tick all the filmmaking boxes.


'Siren' by ash0191

Giving some of moviedom's most infamous criminal duos a run for their money, ash0191's Siren and BloodLust180's Wolf weave a tale of crime, passion and betrayal. With an atmospheric soundtrack backing up some truly tense and explosive moments, the titular and enigmatic Siren shows off her skills and nerves, as the duo leave havoc in their wake. The cliff-hanger ending will have you champing at the bit for a sequel. This video combines footage from Xbox One and PC, enhanced with some creative usage of Story Mode mods and other clever techniques (kudos to Ash for meticulously recreating BloodLust180's character to a T in her second character slot and making use of elsewhat's Scene Director PC mod to make both actors appear side by side in Director Mode).

Also check out: M.I.A by BloodLust180 (where Ash returns the favor, playing a supporting role in BloodLust's taut short action film)


GTA vs Predator! (Rockstar Editor Cinematic) by Duggy

Duggy's cinematic epics continue to impress as Michael, Trevor and Franklin encounter an other-worldy force on a hunting trip. Using jdw7440's Predator mod and nnuu's Green Screen mod as a base, Duggy creates one of the most intense mashups seen to date.


'The Hunt' by OriFilmsGTA

Taking over 3 weeks to create, OriFilmsGTA's short film is a chilling thriller that is well worth the watch for those seeking '"tension, anxiety and a little fear". What begins as an innocent hunting trip on a sunny day for the film's protagonist descends into a menacing, frightening nightmare, when he accidentally witnesses a murder. Soon, the tables are turned and the hunter becomes the hunted. The twist at the end, with nature lending a helping hand, is a profound touch.  


Mercoledi (Wednesday) by Wrinkly Blink Games

The family drama heightens in Wrinkly Blink Games' latest episode of a 7-part series and loving homage to classic Mafioso-themed films. Making use of the Albany Roosevelt, Be My Valentine's outfits, oh-so-familiar musical strings and a sepia lighting filter, the life of a "made man" gets a proper nostalgic treatment. Mercoledi is the 3rd episode in the installment so far, but be sure to catch up with previous chapters Lunedi (Monday) and Martedi (Tuesday) before the next episode.


GoPro Be A Hero by EK2

Going on a different tone and track is EK2's visually impressive short - seen from a 'GoPro' style view - of some "extreme downhill biking on Mount Chiliad". The upbeat soundtrack mixes perfectly with the stunning scenery around Mount Chiliad during sunrise, not to mention some seriously head-spinning views and cool bike tricks to boot. 

BONUS VIDEO:


Grand Theft Auto Theme Cover (Joyride by Da Shootaz) by SquidPhysics

While this is obviously not a Rockstar Editor powered video, it's another amazing live-action clip from the talented SquidPhysics that we just had to share. Covering Da Shootaz' Joyride - the theme song from the very first Grand Theft Auto back in 1997 - SquidPhysics hits all the right notes, even pitch-shifting his voice to rap the verses. You can check out an ever-growing playlist of The One Man Orchestra's GTA Soundtrack covers here.

Rockstar Games Presents the Red Hook Criterium Brooklyn No.9

Posted 5 days, 17 hours ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar

We are looking forward to kicking off the 2016 season of world-class racing with the Red Hook Crit Brooklyn No.9, this Saturday at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal.

375 cyclists and 350 runners hailing from 48 countries are descending on Red Hook to participate in the annual 5k running race and feature bike races. We’re excited to see the familiar faces of elite veterans, as well as imposing newcomers, registered in the men’s and women’s start lists.  

There are also exciting new changes to the racing format. This year’s start line introduces the “YVO Grid”, an arrow shaped starting grid where the fastest qualifier takes lone wolf pole position as the tip of the spear, while the remaining 94 racers are spread no more than 5 riders per row. The circuit itself has been shortened to 1.13km per lap, giving spectators an improved field of view, with a new double hairpin added in turns 2 and 3. 

We’re also proud to bring back the Rockstar Award for Top Antagonist for both the men’s and women’s races, rewarding the athlete who without consideration for their final position most affects the outcome of the race through a combination of tactics, aggressiveness and strength. 

For an in-depth look at the race details, athletes and more, check out the Official Strava Race Guide and for all things Red Hook Crit, visit redhookcrit.com or check them out on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Crew Cut: Custom Classics Car Meets, Arthouse Collectives & More

Posted 1 week, 4 days ago | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The Crew Cut highlights exceptional grassroots community activity, events, accomplishments and other happenings across the thriving Social Club Crew scene. If your Crew is doing something special that you think the Social Club community needs to know about, tell us all about it at mouthoff@rockstargames.com  – you might see your Crew featured in an upcoming edition of the Crew Cut.

This week, check out Crews who have been actively hosting Car Meets to show off their latest customized Lowriders, a spotlight on prominent arthouse collective Crews, a currently active grassroots tournament and more.


NEW CREW MANAGEMENT FEATURES

First off, we’d like to let all you Crew Leaders, Commissioners and Muscle alike know that there are some new oft-requested updates to the Crew Management page on Social Club, adding the ability to filter Friends and Crew Hierarchies by Online Service (e.g. PSN, XBL or Facebook), and search by Gamertag / PSN ID within them.

We've also made it easier for you to see other Crew Members’ Gamertags / PSN IDs and Active Crews when managing the Crew Hierarchy. It's now much simpler to promote or demote Crew Members, review pending Join Requests and scan for applicants playing on a particular platform. If there are any further improvements you'd like to see made to Crew Management or any other aspect of GTA Online, be sure to hit us up at gtaonline@rockstargames.com with your suggestions.


CAR MEETS GET SLAMMED

GKstance98 and his PS4-based Crew, Stance Lovers Only, rallied together to show the Slamvan some serious love at a recent car meet. Be sure to keep an eye on Power GK's YouTube channel for upcoming live streams of Stance Lovers Only's car meets.

RL.Angel and the G A N G S T A N C E Crew held one of their recent car meets on a hazy day out at Vespucci Beach; see a glimpse above cozying up close to the interior dash and hydraulics of the Vapid Slamvan via the Rockstar Editor.

Then there's AZcrAZydog from the Xbox One chapter of the reddit-based GTAAdventures Crew, who injected some aerial stunting and a raucous demolition derby into their Lowriders Meet before scaling Mount Chiliad in their Willard Faction Custom Donks.

Never ones to shy from their ongoing obsession with dropped vehicles, TheLowlyGentlemen Crew recently went all out to celebrate the new Custom Classic Vapid Slamvan at an official car meet. Pimping out their rides with every imaginable livery and color variation, and driving models that appear both antique and fully refurbished, TheLowlyGentlemen stay true to their name in this stylish video.

If you and your Crew have some awesome Lowriders Custom Classics car meet footage or Snaps, share ‘em in comments below.


ARTHOUSE CREWS

Beyond some of the pre-eminent and long-standing Snapmatic Crews such as Snapography and GTAPhotographers, we wanted to shine a light on some other Crews that have been pushing the creative boundaries of the medium from pure photography into something best described as "Snapmatic Art." Using Snapmatics as a source asset, these Crews take Snapmatics to the next level by applying creative photo editing, experimenting and innovating with in-game Meme Text, creating original images with bullets and even applying their own coloring techniques and illustration skills to existing photos.

Presenting two particularly prolific arthouse collective Crews whose members inspire and innovate day in and day out:


The Magnificent Team

Referring to themselves as an "exclusive Snapmatic movement," The Magnificent Team have attracted the likes of prestigious Snapographers Basimatic, Sariska and FirewoodDog,meme art manipulator xX19scorpius83Xx and bullet art maestro aizakkusan to their ranks. With a booming community on Twitter and Instagram, a special congratulations goes out to TMGT (and their fearless leader empiretimes aka Snaplord_TMT) as they recently celebrated their one-year anniversary. Here’s just a scant bit of some of the talent among their 100+ member roster.


 

xX19scorpius83Xx makes clever use of filters and layering techniques to create stunning scenes and an amusing hand-drawn self-portrait in the Meme Text editor. 

 
 

An unconventional marksman, aizakkusan's amazing work with bullets involves carving out everything from familiar faces to pop icons, and even a spot on recreation of their affiliate Crew Visual Moods Central's emblem. 

TMGT member Basimatic is an accomplished Snapmatic photographer, Rockstar Editor and much more – here, she camped out and photographed the same vista across several times of day and night to display a stunning color palette along the LS skyline. You’re going to want to follow her on Twitter to keep up with the amazing things she shares every day.


CREATIVE R6 INC

Another artistic collective impressing on a daily basis is mitar0su's CREATIVE R6 INC, housing incredible talents such as ryophotolicWolf_Gang776, and ARIBABABAN. From 3D GIFs to stylized, cel-shaded style Snapmatics, RSIX's Crew Members are constantly looking to push the envelope.

 

You can find more eye-catching work like this on ryophotolic's official Twitter account, and additional artwork and snaps at #creativeR6inc.

Yu-nosuke aka TeamGoliath_RP applied some eye-catching filters on this shot showing off the new Compact Rifle that makes for the look of a fully sketched color pencil drawing.

Gorgeous and creative car photography is also a specialty; enjoy this stunning play on the color spectrum in this piece by R6 member mitar0su


REBL ONE YEAR CREW ANNIVERSARY

Another prominent Crew celebrating their one-year is REBL PC. These guys have consistently impressed with fun presentations like their REBL - GTA Yacht Parties and REBL - The Lowriders. In this Crew video, the REBLs have an absolute free-for-all blast, engaging in a massive Karin Rebel demolition derby and shooting fireworks from the top of the Rebel Radio station to celebrate their first anniversary in true REBL style.


CREW TOURNAMENT UNDERWAY: DETESTED FOUR BRACKET

CHEEkSx0x0 of the battle Crew Detested reached out recently to let us know they are hosting a Free Aim (PS4) tournament, and have been working exhaustively to put together elite Crews for the first round such as ineffable arts, CAP PILLAS, Cureless Aim and the Temple Drive Ballas. Tournament rounds will be routinely streamed on the BAETRED | RED7 YouTube channel, along with highlights of best moments. Upcoming Crew brackets are posted in the video description here. Contact PreciousYvette @ kik or yv.xo Baetred @ kik .babez for further details.

Round 1 Results: In the first round, 7DeadlyGlobalHiTaz took a narrow, one-kill lead against The Classic Crew, but DOPE turned it around considerably in the second round to take the match win. Cureless Aim soundly trounced The Damned Brotherhood in the initial round, but faced a disqualification for breaking agreed-upon tournament rules. Finally, the Temple Drive Ballas squared off against Baggy Nation, squashing and shutting down their opponents in both rounds for an uncontestable win.
