This is probably the best GTA Live Action short movie I have ever saw. The video was filmed in Los Angeles (city that Los Santos was inspired on), the sound effects are all taken from the game and the song used is by exceptional artist Carpenter Brut and fits perfectly into the video, as GTA V (game inspired on to make the video) always had a bit of 80s feel to it with the background score..
Although it looks like it, the whole thing was not recorded on a drone. It was recorded with a GoPro.
The most impressive thing about the video is clearly the camera work. It really makes you feel you're looking at a video game taking place in real life.
If there is something bad about this video, the only thing I can point out is the ending and how the shootout didn't last much. The ending (spoilers) is having the main character getting hit by a car. While I do think it was a good idea to not have the actor hit by a real car, I have to say that the digital ragdoll they used just looked stupid and weightless. And the shootout, although well made, was too short. I'm sure they could have made it at least 30 seconds longer and a bit more intense and GTA-ish by having the protagonist pull a rocket launcher from his pants and explode something.
Apart from those two minor complaints, this is a must watch for any GTA Fan out there.
