It's time to celebrate the heroes of Southern San Andreas who risked life and limb to protect the LS way of life. The courageous misfits who stormed missile bases, sabotaged submarines and shot Cargo Planes out of the sky with the kind of reckless abandon that would make Solomon Richards proud. After reviewing each and every eligible entry, we're proud to present the very best from the #DOOMSDAY Rockstar Editor Contest.
Congratulations are in order for our grand prize winner .GHOST.RIDER., who will soon be in possession of the coveted Rockstar Editor Trophy, customized Director's Chair and the GTAV Varsity Jacket, complete with customized Director's Patch, thanks to his entry "#DOOMSDAY."
#DOOMSDAY by .GHOST.RIDER.
Set to the rumbling drums of the trap hit "Work" by Young Scooter & Gucci Mane, Ghost floats the camera through the scene and slips through shadows picking off guards before storming the Server Farm in Act I of The Doomsday Heist. Alternating between high contrast colorful images and first-person night vision footage (achieved with the Game Over Man filter), Ghost brings the audience in close for a front-row seat to this thrilling Doomsday Heist showpiece.
Congrats to our two runners up, each of whom will receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse Gift Card as well as a deluxe GTAV prize pack of collectible items.

The Doomsday Scenario by KILL3RWAFFL3Z

After setting the scene with an explosive opening, KILL3RWAFFL3Z winds back the clock to tell the story of how a crack team of misfits saved the state of San Andreas.

Congratulations to grand prize winner Give-Me-Liberty, who will soon be in possession of the coveted Rockstar Editor Trophy, customized Director's Chair and the GTAV Varsity Jacket, complete with customized Director's Patch, thanks to his entry "TRYING ANYWAY."
TRYING ANYWAY by Give-Me-Liberty
In his first ever Rockstar Editor Contest entry, Give-Me-Liberty delivers a rollicking and action-packed lesson in how to smuggle in style. "Answer to Yourself" by The Softpack provides the perfect soundtrack as Liberty's squad smashes through Source and Sell Missions across the state, expertly piloting virtually every aircraft from the Smuggler's Run update — from the Alpha-Z1 to the Tula to Seabreeze — racking up cargo and laying waste to anyone foolish enough to try and share airspace.
RED IS DEAD by laurent.do
A veteran creator from both the Rockstar Editor and Snapmatic scenes, laurent.do delivers the goods once again with the vintage stylized "RED IS DEAD". The Racing Club co-Lieutenant's cinematic talents shine through with some gorgeous framing and excellent use of the Rockstar Editor's filters. Echoing vibes of the granddaddy of film contest champions, 1927's dogfight drama and first ever Best Picture winner "Wings" - a badass heroine pilot in the mold of Amelia Earhart vibe takes to the skies in Stockpile mode scoring some epic aerial takedowns.
DREAMSCAPE by Venzee
The Vainglorious member Venzee rises to the occasion with this sentimental story-driven entry about a Grapeseed farmer who realizes his dream of becoming a pilot. After proving he's got the stones to stunt in the Howard NX-25, Venzee heads back to the training room before revealing his full fleet at Fort Zancudo. As a bonus, Venzee is all about the details, providing a thorough backstory you can read here.

It’s time to honor the Rockstar Editor filmmakers who rose to the challenge in capturing the illicit and explosive dealings of this summer’s Gunrunning action. Congratulations to SocialOfficer, who will be taking home the elusive Rockstar Editor Trophy, customized Director's Chair and the coveted GTAV Varsity Jacket with customized Director's Patch (seen here), thanks to their Grand Prize winning entry "LOCK AND LOAD".
Check out all of the chosen videos below, and look for the announcement of our #SMUGGLERS Rockstar Editor contest very soon...
LOCK AND LOAD by SocialOfficer
SocialOfficer portrays seemingly every little bit of Gunrunning action to compose four minutes of non-stop thrills that could serve as a veritable alternative trailer for the update. There's glorious adrenaline-pumping action shots captured from M.O.C. Missions like Data Breach, Work Dispute and Severe Weather Patterns, along with cameos from Research Technicians, Workshops, burly new Mk II weapons, Weaponized Vehicles and much more. An action montage this carefully shot and composed is a feat in and of itself - but it's the perfectly selected soundtrack of "Lock & Load" (by MNDR featuring Killer Mike from the Welcome to Los Santos soundtrack) that it was impeccably edited to that helps push this piece to unique dramatic heights.
Our two runner ups, ii_sNipezZ01 and The-DST, will each receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse gift card and deluxe prize pack with official GTAV gear and collectibles for their stellar efforts.
COLD AIR by ii_sNipezZ01
And now for something completely different, ii_sNipezZ01 uses the action of Gunrunning as a backdrop to tell the heartbreaking story of Vespa - a military wife who believes her husband was killed in action. Following Vespa as she struggles to cope with the seeming loss of her husband, it may not be the feel good hit of the season, but it's a truly well-made and edited piece that is unique and worthy of recognition.
GUNRUNNING DECADE by The-DST
Having earned an honorable mention in the #WARSTOCK Special Vehicles Editor contest, this time around The-DST levels up and dials up the insanity to 11 with a driving soundtrack that compliments everything from Bunker target practice to the considerable destruction caused at the hands of the Weaponized Tampa, Insurgent Pick-Up Custom and other militarized vehicles.
A special shout out as well to these superb quality entries that caught our eye:
BRAND NEW REVOLUTION by senorkickurass
senorkickurass takes a funkified approach in this effort with unique angles, sexy Dune shots and a shot with extraterrestrial vibes certain to put you over the moon.
Gunrunning Strong by ShredderGG
Relive the most heart-pounding moments of Gunrunning Missions through the eyes of ShredderGG, with some magnificent shots.
Not the Same by SNEAKEE_P
Tough as nails female bosses rule the land in this entry from BUCKET-HAT-HittaGaNG Commissioner SNEAKEE_P.
