Gather round, and witness the newest creation of the legendary film-smith, Merfish. Having become quasi famous on the web due to his recreations of the openings of various 90’s family shows, such as Arthur and Full House, Merfish now tackles another well known show from that era.
Though toned down a tad (not accounting for the ending, of course), the presence of significantly more violence than in the source material which has become a staple of Merfish’s work is apparent here too. Check out The Fresh Prince of Rockford Hills.
For those of you unfamiliar with the series, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was a sitcom that ran for 6 seasons from 1990 to 1996. The series stars Will Smith, who after getting in a tassel with a few thugs in a basketball court, needs to move into the mansion of his dirty-rich uncle. Sucks, right? The show was the first step in Will Smith’s acting career, who now is most known for his roles in several high-profile films. Merfish went into painstaking detail to get his recreation as accurate as possible, whilst filling it with enough deviation to make the whole endeavour more comical. Check out a side-by-side comparison below and see for yourself.
Merfish isn’t the only one out there who knows how to make good use of the extremely versatile Rockstar Editor. The gameplay capture and video editing software, available with the PC versions of GTA V, has been used to recreate game and movie trailers such as Need for Speed and Mad Max, alongside Merfish’s cute, family-friendly 90′ sitcoms. These recreations are possible thanks to the director mode of the software, allowing players to view recorded scenes from different camera angles and under various lighting condition, and mods, making new, fan-created assets available to use.
What do you guys think of this recreation? Have you ever made a video with the Rockstar Editor?
