With all the creative videos, trailers and recreations of movie scenes players have been creating with the GTA V video editor, currently available only on PC, it’s rare to find a video about the game making the rounds on the internet that was recorded outside of the cyberverse.
While real-life fan adaptations of the Grand Theft Auto franchise are hardly an innovation, the team over at Corridor Digital took it to the next level with their extremely authentic video shot in Los Angeles, the city that inspired GTA: San Andreas’ and GTA V’s Los Santos. Featuring many of the landmarks that appear in the digital rendition of the city, this video accurately captures the camera angles of the game, as well as some of the mechanics (if you beat someone up, stacks of money explode from their body which you collect by walking over them).
The special effects used in the video are great, and it’s really well choreographed. Check out the team’s other videos here.
