In the growing wake of low-budget, special effect action minis whose audience has become larger and larger on YouTube, Sam and Niko's "Real GTA" steps the game up once more with a perfect assimilation of the popular "Grand Theft Auto" video game into real, Los Angeles life. Complete with sound effects recreated as similarly as possible within the actual game, the same Los Angeles street scenes, and smashing special effects (like the famous wads of cash exploding out of recently killed bystanders), "Real GTA" reminds us both how ridiculous and subsequently fun it is.
In true YouTube VFX-packed action fashion, the duo also included a full behind-the-scenes video for those interested in dissecting the clips and general tools used to make the film.
And if that's not enough, for those interested in supporting the Samandniko YouTube Channel, you can support their Patreon campaigns as outlined in their video below, which can also get you access to all of the finished files, raw files, stock footage, and After Effects files used to make the film. That's so much footage that even some Fstoppers founders might get a bit queasy at the thought (some might remember Fstoppers began as a blog championing BTS footage).
