Fan Vids: Original GTAV Trailer in Madrid, Undead Marston Make-Up Tutorial, Pet Shop Boys Tribute & More

This week's installment of impressive and innovative fan videos includes a live-action rendition of GTAV's original trailer set against the beautiful backdrop of Madrid, a radiant makeup maestro who knows just how to breathe life into an undead cowboy, a Pet Shop Boys ode to the almighty dollar and enough stunts by land and air to make your head spin. Grand Theft Auto: Madrid - Real Life Trailer by Zapruder Pictures The Zapruder Pictures team of Guillermo de Oliveira and Javier Esteban first caught our eye with their 2012 fan-film, Max Payne: Valhalla. In Grand Theft Auto: Madrid, they've used the sun-soaked streets of Madrid, Spain to create an impressive homage to the original GTAV Trailer. Those unfamiliar with the region should be pleasantly surprised at how well the Spanish capital accommodates this re-creation. From the congested traffic grid of Downtown LS (Alcobendas Burgos) to the RON Alternates Wind Farm along the Senora Freeway, each scene is paralleled quite impressively.       ​Undead Marston // Maquillaje Cosplay Makeup FX // Red Dead Redemption // DIY Tutorial by Keevanski (en Español w/subtitles) "Cosplay done right" is an expression often reserved for individuals who truly excel at this style of costume-based fan art. We certainly believe that catchphrase suits the multi-talented and exceptional Keevanski - known for her spot on portrayals of popular game characters, hair dressing tutorials and painstakingly hand-crafted and highly detailed game props. In this slick and fun to watch presentation, we see her literally transform into the spitting image of an Undead John Marston with a few well-placed strokes of the make-up sponge, masterful application of studio-quality prosthetics and some great hand-crafted props. Also Check Out:Sarah Reese // Maquillaje Cosplay Makeup FX // Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare // DIY Tutorial GTA 5 - "Emergence" | Amazing BMX Stunt Montage by ConsistentHD & ErasableNinja Previously, we witnessed ErasableNinja bring his A-game in "The BMX Flow" a stylish production with second-to-none bike trick sorcery. In "Emergence", ErasableNinja lends an editing hand to ConsistentHD's first BMX montage. This debut effort features gravity defying wall rides, sick combo rail grinds, perfect plants and flamboyant flips - we also get some truly massive ground-level bowl to bowl transfers at the Rearwall skatepark near the Olympic Freeway overpass.     Also Check Out:GTA 5 BMX - "Statement" A Freestyle BMX Montage by Fishy Dizzle​ Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money) - A GTA Online Music Video by vader2K As the ethereal synths cue up, fans of the 80's may feel Vice City level nostalgic chills running up their spine while watching this totally rad throwback video tribute to The Pet Shop Boys classic hit, "Opportunities". In this greed-is-good visualization, we see a pair of down on their luck friends go from rags to riches, jet setting in the finest accommodations and transport, literally filling up swimming pools with expensive watercraft and dominating the LSI tarmac with their personal Luxor Jets. Also Check Out:Digitalism - Wolves (GTA Music Video) by StudioGTA "DANGER ZONE 3" | GTA 5 Jet Stunt Montage #5 by vSubFire Ace pilot vSubFire certainly wowed us with prior installments of the DANGER ZONE series. In this round, vSub opens by carving an impossibly sharp arc through a docking bay in the Port of South Los Santos. He then proceeds to spin clockwise with a single clipped wing slow and steady against the counter-clockwise spinning blades of the turbines within the RON wind farm and emerges on the other side of the field without a scratch. Top that off with a daring one take sideways navigation of the LS skyline and a precarious pass through the bridges and tree lines of Blaine County and we have another worthy entry in this riveting aerial series. ​​Also Check Out:GTA 5 Mallard Plane Stunt Montage | "Feather" by Venus & NightMare   MORE RECOMMENDED VIEWING Also don’t miss these fun vids that we recently spotted and shouted out on Twitter or simply took note of – make sure you’re following us there to see some great videos shared on the regular: GTA 5 Stunts - Stunt Montage 13 (300k subscribers special) by Kwebbelkop: Le Kops Crew Leader and notable stunter Kwebbelkop goes all out to celebrate his channel's acquisition of 300K subscribers in a dazzling display of spectacular stunts and fantastic feats.   GTAV Online FEED ME Montage by DropDeadOmix: Drop Dead Omix uses two and a half weeks of stellar game footage from GTAV and Max Payne 3 to straight up devour the competition in a face-blasting array of color and sound. Above & Beyond "Satellite / Stealing Time" by Михаил Терехин: An avid GTA fan uses greater Los Santos as the canvas and overall backdrop to make a quite unexpectedly poignant and touching music video tribute for his wife. Shine Thugz - "Hood gone love it" GTA music vidéo (By Jay Rock) by ShineThugz: From the Bolingbroke Penitentiary rec yard to the set-tripping streets of South LS the Shine Thugz show once again they know how to put it down and get proper recognition from the streets. GTA 5 IMPOSSIBLE STUNTS 2 | Nomad Union Stunt Montage - Omega by RedKeyMon: RKM and the rest of the Nomad Union stunting team are back at it, serving as the veritable alpha and omega of innovative high-quality stunts in GTAV.

Fan Vids: Other Places - São Paulo Edition, Iconic Film Remakes, Musical Horn Fun & More

The latest batch of auspicious and audacious fan created videos includes a journey back to the sun soaked urban horizon of São Paulo in Max Payne 3, awesomely inspired movie and television videos making the rounds, the use of Los Santos Customs as an impromptu music studio of sorts and more.     Other Places: Sao Paulo (Max Payne 3) by ultrabrilliant We've been dazzled before by ultrabrilliant's "Other Places" video series (check out Grand Theft Auto V's San Andreas here). In this video, he takes a stroll down through the bullet-ridden back alleys and winding thoroughfares of Max Payne's 3's rendition of São Paulo, Brazil. From the stark poverty of the favelas in Nova Esperança, to the seedy aftermath of a gunfight in the O Paliaca Strip Club, enjoy a quiet moment alone with the scenery and see the vast economic contrast therein on the neon soaked dance floors and opulent modern interiors of places like Club Moderno, the Branco residence and the glaring floodlights of the Galatians Stadium. Also Check Out: GTA V: Time-lapse by KATE DAWG     GTA 5: Terminator 2: Judgment Day Remake (Truck Chase Scene) by John Chapman Few cinematic chase scenes are as memorable and iconic as John Connor's desperate dirt bike flight from the menacing and seemingly indestructible T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. From his narrow parking garage escape to the harrowing semi-truck chase through the storm drain, a large portion of the film's original shots and camera angles are recaptured faithfully in this heart-pumping presentation. We hope film editor and director John Chapman and the Legendary Gaming family will "be back" with something clever like this again sometime in the near future.     GTA Online "Kill Thrill" vol.1 montage | GTA 5 free aim multiplayer HD PS3 by El Serpe In an ode to Quentin Tarantino's two-volume epic, Aegis Legion's accomplished film editor and director takes on the persona of The Bride to unleash a reign of death and dismemberment. Subbing in the Heavy Sniper rifle for the Hattori Hanzō katana and a powerful Combat MG that would surely give the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique a run for its money, we see all of El_Serpe's enemies get crossed off the "Death List Five".​ Also Check Out:The Sopranos (Intro Credits) by 8-BIT BASTARD     GTA 5 - Car Horn Playing Thunderstruck by LUKENBACHER The addition of the Do Re Mi Car Horn Scale to Los Santos Customs in the High Life Update has generated some fantastic musical creations, including this inspired rendition of one of AC/DC's classic rock anthems.

GTA Fan Pics: Los Santos Bullet Street Art, Homemade GTA Action Figure Diorama, Franklin’s Snapmatic

In this week's roundup of awesome Grand Theft Auto inspired fan art, the GTAAdventures subreddit puts on a Daft Punk tribute concert in Los Santos, an Italian artist shows off his amazing custom-made GTA character action figures and dioramas, plus dispatches from the fan fic San Andreas Alternative News, an illustrative imagining of Franklin's Snapmatic feed and more. As always, should you find (or create) any awe-inspiring GTA or Rockstar-related art or photos that you think other fans need to see, make sure to send them our way via Mouthoff and follow us at instagram.com/rockstargames for all our latest official pics.Social Club member schoolboy129 gives new meaning to the term "shot for shot remake" here, using the AP Pistol  and some very accurate targeting to muralize a few familiar faces on the streets of Los Santos. In addition to popular GTA characters like Trevor and Ryder seen above, there are also some fun tributes to Springfield's most notorious problem child and lots of others amidst schoolboy's Snapmatic gallery. ​Daniele D'Adamo, known as DDJunior on the Italian GTA-Expert fan forum, has been working on a GTA-inspired miniature series for quite some time. Following the release of the limited-edition Claude action figure as a part of the Grand Theft Auto III 10 Year Anniversary Collection a few years back, Daniele worked to provide Claude with a proper habitat by recreating the original Portland safe house from GTA3. Daniele then took it to the next level with homemade Niko Bellic and Michael De Santa action figures seen above, along with a highly detailed diorama set based on the Vangelico Heist mission in GTAV. Source: GTA-Expert.it Shanen, the talented artist formerly known for the radiopappa tumblr (now epsee.tumblr) responsible for the GTAV Bullworth Alternate Universe continues to amaze with her original creative pieces. Enjoy the above illos of Franklin's imagined Snapmatic posts, and she's also been featuring a very fun 'GTAV anime' series as well. Source: epsee.tumblr. "Oh Show me the way to Sandy Shores I've spent all my money on meth and whores." Illustrator Rotzlöffel did this striking piece at loeffeldraws.tumblr entitled "What a Trevor dreams of" - originally in black-and-white, then brought to an appropriate fever pitch with awesomely vivid coloring as seen above. The /r/GTAA community has been pulling off some legendary Snapmatic homages for quite a while now, and there's no signs of them slowing down given this recent photo shoot combining the motorcycle masks, the Jazz Hands toasts coming from the audience and the orange exhaust smoke (cleverly emanating from an offscreen car) to make for an epic Daft Punk tribute concert. Via redditor: Shiftex Graphic designer Ollie Hoff shared his stylish GTAV fan art with us on Twitter that also received some love on reddit as well. Hoff even made a handy portrait version that works very nicely as a mobile wallpaper.  Looking for all the latest news the San Andreas "mainstream" media doesn't want you to know about?

I take my chances..." Speaking of the 80s, those of a certain age may fondly remember the network TV series The Fall Guy for its campy humor, over-the-top stunts and glamorous celebrity cameos. German YouTuber ODog HBDogs, working in collaboration with members of the GTA V Fall Guys and PainKillaZz Crews, has put together a delightfully nostalgic homage filmed on location in Los Santos and Blaine County that matches up well against the original with big explosions and set-piece spills to match.

There’s tons of Trevor sketches out there, but Finnish artist @Nurmink’s stuck out to us for its detail and pathos. Trevor as the proverbial sad and tormented clown. There’s also perhaps a bit of Michael in there - intentional?    In the grand tradition of Rockstar and GTA themed cakes and confectionaries, comes this epic multi-layered GTAV cake shared by @nothin_but_truckz on IG.

We had to parachute while avoiding the gunfire, and eventually regroup with our teammates." By redditor gunslingerx64: “Prison Bus Heist action! Most fun I’ve had online!”  THE HYDRA HAS LANDED GTA fans have been pining for the VTOL Hydra jet for quite a while now, and wasted no time putting it to its paces once unlocked by completing the EMP Setup mission during the Humane Labs Raid Heist. Ace pilots from the GTA stunting scene are capitalizing on the Hydra’s unique and versatile hover abilities to pull off some jaw dropping stuff.
