The Rockstar Editor has been used in the past to make some fairly impressive and amazing things. All kinds of videos have been filmed within the world of GTA 5 ranging from original productions to trailer remakes. Coupled with mods, the versatility of the Editor allows for seemingly infinite possibility in terms of fan videos.
By mods we don’t only mean various skins for characters or vehicles. Stuff like Scene Director or those green screen mods add to the movie making experience in a functional way. The community is still bustling with new ideas and is easily the largest active fan-video crowd for any video game out there.
However, we’ve never come across anything quite like this video we’ll be sharing with you today. We feel this project deserves significantly more views than what it has. The creator has been building hype for this video for some time now with short clips used as trailers.
The creator, 88Jackob88 has more than a little experience with GTA fan videos, since he’s been uploading San Andreas related content for over 6 years now. He also dabbles in modding, as shown by those of his videos which show off custom maps.
This particular video is the one that will earn him fame, most likely. The Hungarian content creator has spent 3 months working on a project called “Rover”, which he has now completed and uploaded.
But what is Rover?
A 25 minute, high-quality, masterfully edited sci-fi short film, is what. The plot of the film revolves around a humanoid alien astronaut, who is travelling through the universe exploring various planets. He discovers a downed human ship and extracts the location of Earth from one of the survivors. He travels to the planet and bears witness to 5000 years of history.
It is obvious from the start that there are more than a few mods being used here, in order to create the locations which represent the various planets. The shots are detailed, intricate and well edited. The whole video shows the signs of a professional touch. The editing work is phenomenal and the choice of music is spot on.
The video has been getting overwhelmingly positive feedback on YouTube, with pretty much every comment declaring Rover as the best GTA 5 machinima ever made. Fans and other film-making enthusiasts both praise the video for the great effort put into making it.
What do you think of this GTA 5 fan film?
