As far as odd GTA V fan videos go, this takes the cake – and gets nominated for cutest picture in the meantime. The introduction of the Rockstar Editor in GTA V’s PC version led to the appearance of a whole new generation of Grand Theft Auto fan film creators. Not only is gameplay capture much easier on PC than it is on consoles for laymen, the Rockstar Editor cuts out the need for the use of various third-party programs for recording and editing.
The Editor allows players to record their gameplay in GTA V and edit it using a diverse range of tools, effects and props all without having to leave the game. Director mode allows players to set up entire scenes, with NPC actors performing scripted actions. This handed the kind of power to the average gamer that was reserved for those with enough technical know-how to get it done.
Countless fans with the desire to create videos based on and within their favorite game now could do so without too much extra effort required. Those who simply didn’t want to bother with all fuss now had no “excuse” not to make the videos they’ve envisioned.
This led to a boom in the number of GTA V fan videos being shared with the internet every day. When the Editor came to current-gen consoles last year, the potential user-base multiplied once more. All kinds of videos, ranging from recreations to original content have been made over the months.
The video we’re sharing with you today falls in the latter category. A joke trailer for a movie that would be shot within GTA V titled simply “Bunny”, the video goes for a funny tone. This would pair up real nice with the video someone made of a chicken’s daring escape.
Bunny, the protagonist of his or her eponymous film, is a fearless rabbit who braves not only the highest peak of GTA V, but takes the indestructible train head on and even jousts with the jumbo jets on the tarmac of LSIA. The trailer reaches its crux when the scene where Bunny is escaping a frantic shoot-out switches to the shot of two planes exploding at the airport.
Is it a film of self-discovery? It is an action flick for the ages? Well, we’ll never know, since this is more of a one-off joke video than an actual trailer for a longer GTA fan film in the works.
Have any of you guys dallied in the Rockstar Editor? Feel free to share your GTA V fan videos!
