Director creates a full-length film with Grand Theft Auto IV
Gamer/Amateur filmmaker Mathieu Weschler must love him some "Grand Theft Auto." The French commercials director wrote a script and spent over two years using the "Grand Theft Auto IV" engine to bring his movie to life. Yes, the movie is created within the world of the game and then edited together to fit the script.
The film is called THE TRASHMASTERS and this is how Weschler describes it:
"The "trashmaster" divides his time between collecting garbage and cleaning up other forms of trash fouling up New York City's streets: dealers, small-time criminals... When the dancers in his favorite strip club are mysteriously killed, the trashmaster finds himself hot on the trail of a particularly twisted serial killer."
Weschler hired an American actor to dub over all the dialogue in the film so that's one actor playing all the voices you hear. Lest you think this was just some paltry internet machinima project, THE TRASHMASTER will be screening at the San Francisco Independent Film Festival in February.
I've embedded the video below but know in advance, it's a full 88-minutes so you're going to need some time to watch the entire thing. I'm about halfway through now though and I'm impressed at the amount of work that went into this and how professional it looks. Take a look below.
