Just one of the excellent Special Vehicles action sequences from Welwelkouill’s winning clip – chock full of blasting Rocket Voltics, Ramp Buggy launch pads and more.
Warstock Cache and Carry called out to Los Santos' greatest filmmakers to help showcase their new inventory of Special Vehicles, and to no surprise, the Rockstar Editor community delivered the goods. The bar for creativity and the penchant for carnage both reached new heights, with many of you pulling off stunts that previously seemed unimaginable. Congratulations to Welwelkouill for winning the grand prize with "IMPORT–EXPORT". Aside from etching their name in the annals of Rockstar Editor contests, Wel will receive the customized Director's Chair, the highly coveted GTAV Varsity Jacket complete with a Director's patch and the illustrious Rockstar Editor trophy.
IMPORT–EXPORT by Welwelkouill
The art of the music video is a tough one to master, but Welwelkouill hits all the right notes in this bombastic Special Vehicles montage set to the Welcome to Los Santos track "Fast Life." The dancehall jam proves just the right pick for this over-the-top Los Santos tour, complete with adrenaline-filled Voltic drag races, Ramp Buggys and Phantom Wedges serving as high-octane launch pads with some truly awesomely edited action sequences. Topped off with flashy clothes, fast cars and death-defying stunts, IMPORT-EXPORT deservedly takes the top spot.
Our two runner ups, BloodLust180 and jKashh, will each receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse gift card and deluxe prize pack with official GTAV gear and collectibles.
UNFORGIVEN #WARSTOCK by BloodLust180
Love is a dangerous drug and BloodLust180 risks life and limb to get her fix. In this explosive revenge thriller, BloodLust savages through waves of masked mad men in a race to save a kidnapped lover. The chase flows from the seas through the deserts as this previously acclaimed editor eviscerates foes from behind the wheel of a Ruiner 2000.
#WARSTOCK by jKashh
jKashh and The BadWolf Council Crew may be dressed to the nines, but their antics are straight up dirty in this funk-infused adventure powered by B.T. Express' "Do It ('Til You're Satisfied)". Packed with slick transitions and scenes worthy of Vinewood blockbusters, jKashh and company outdid themselves with this one.
While we can only award three entries, we'd be remiss if we didn't show some love to a couple of other honorable mentions:
REDEMPTION by Jaymz_Death
After a failed escape attempt, Jaymz_Death and his car stealing partner in crime are given an ultimatum: rot in prison or complete a dangerous task for a billionaire megalomaniac. Take a stab at which option they chose.
FEEL THE SAME by The-DST
This femme fatale has got a thirst for mayhem and a bevy of Special Vehicles to help her dish out some pain.
Previously:GTA Online: Import/Export Now Available#ImportExport and #FestiveSurprise2016 Snapmatic Photo Challenge WinnersWatch the Winning Video of the #CEO Rockstar Editor Contest: "Sellin' Dope" BY BILL_BENEDICT
The streets of Los Santos are swarming with some of the baddest Motorcycle Clubs and independent riders you’ve ever seen and as proof, we’ve gathered some of the best videos, GIFs and Snapmatics from members of the GTA Online community.
Zadrium and other members of the prolific REBL Crew got right to test driving some of the vehicles, weapons and businesses from the new update. Similar to his work on the Western-themed Ricochet that we featured in August, Zadrium perfectly captures the tone and feel of what it means to be an outlaw.
Only able to sit idle around their Clubhouse for so long, members of Western Brothers MC take their bikes for a twilight ride. Watch for a solid melee attack at the end, causing a rival member of The Lost to eat dirt.
There's no better way to spend your day off than racing through traffic on two wheels. DeejayJeanP of Logic Films suits up and puts the new Shitzu Hakuchou Drag bike through its paces across the sunny streets of Los Santos.
This new grenade launcher is a handy little gun.
A "biker" in his own right, Redditor AllUpNSmoke demonstrates what a capable little killing machine the new Compact Grenade Launcher can be in this GIF. With a bank shot even Michael Jordan and Larry Bird would be envious of, AllUpNSmoke takes it from behind cover and off the wall for nothing but death.
Even those with the roughest of edges can't be hardcore all of the time. From the throne of his Faggio Mod, Vine's Koopapoopascoopa proves that under all that macho posturing is just a man in heart-emblazoned boxers.

Previously:Cunning Stunts Come Alive: Incredible Saves, Vehicle Showcases & More From the GTA Online CommunityCunning Stunts: Choice GIFs, Videos and More
The latest collection of Fan Videos showcases folks working wonders with GTA Online: Cunning Stunts, some of Los Santos' finest auteurs continuing to dazzle with the Rockstar Editor and more. This round-up features a beautifully-shot piece that will leave you wanting to run straight to Vespucci Beach, new music from an old friend, and a graphic Western homage. Check out these and more visual treats below.
GTA 5 - Cunning Stunts DLC | Vehicle Showcase #2 by EvolveStunting
Last seen at the Newswire in February with some impressive BMX trickery, the Evolve gang is back at it with their second Cunning Stunts vehicle showcase. Having already released one Cunning Stunts showcase, watch this time around as these stunters take it to the limit and get top level performances out of the ETR1, RE-7B, BF400 and all the rest.
Low Tide (GTA 5 Rockstar Editor Machinima) by Logic-Films
As a collective, Logic-Films are known primarily for stylish showcases of GTA Online vehicles. This time around, editor Drowsy mixes things up with a tribute to summer. Set to XY & O's song of the same name, the video - according to the group's blog - was "inspired by different photographers/video makers who do very beautiful lifestyle/travel work." With mesmerizing sunrises, enticing waves and shots of Los Santos beach bums in their natural habitat, the warm and sunny vibes of this clip make for a perfect epilogue in the last fleeting days of summer.
Power Unlimited - GTA V Rockstar Editor by K Mountilla
K Mountilla sent us this tribute to the vehicles of Los Santos, captured during a PS4 car meet and sporting a deep roster of cars and motorcycles from GTA Online. K combines sexy close-ups, first-person POV and shots that change velocity, dancing along to the soundtrack. Particularly exhilarating is this lightning-fast sequence from behind the wheel.
GTA V - When Nature Calls (Rockstar Editor) by Duggy
Previously featured at the Newswire, for his use of GTAV as an inspired backdrop for Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot soliloquy - this time Duggy addresses the seemingly innocent and victimless act of relieving oneself in the woods. Watch as Michael peacefully breaks the seal, only for it to give him the scare of a lifetime. Think the Fighting Trees from The Wizard of Oz, only weirder...
Mission Music [Original] by SquidPhysics
Long-time Rockstar theme song cover wizard Squid Physics, known for epic one-man-band versions of the music from GTA III, GTAV and everything in between, has decided to branch out into the world of originals. First releasing the theme from an imagined GTA set in Las Venturas in June, Squid then released this music which is supposed to be the accompaniment to an imaginary Grand Theft Auto desert mission. Broken into three parts - "a stealth bit, firefight and getaway" - this piece at times has hints of Middle Eastern, Western and even free jazz influences. Also worth a listen is Squid's recent Vice City-inspired theme, which uses the original as a starting point and takes it to maximum levels of funkiness.
GTA V - Ricochet [Rockstar Editor Short] by Zadrium
The REBL Crew's Zadrium is responsible for this homage to the Western film genre. Kicking things off with "Man with a Harmonica" (off the staple Once Upon a Time in the West and by Spaghetti Western soundtrack king Ennio Morricone), it's evident from the start that the standoff won't end in a handshake, even when the soundtrack shifts to Andrea Bocelli's "Con te Partirò," a song with a rich cinematic history of its own.
Lampshades (PC Rockstar Editor) by Lu Iggy
Modest Mouse fan Lu Iggy took inspiration from the video to their 2014 hit "Lampshades on Fire" and the result is an excellent reimagining. Mr. Iggy, who's The Raid made it into a previous Newswire round-up this past March (definitely check out Part 2 here), uses a similar cutting style as the original and takes it a step further with all sorts of unsavory characters.
GTA Online: Sumo by Channel V
Inspired by the traditional Japanese sport of Sumo itself, Channel V's tribute to the GTA Online Sumo Mode features two Vapid Slamvans wrestling it out for supremacy. The producers put some brilliant touches on this one - from the use of the Oriental Theater location in Downtown Vinewood to the Eastern-flavored soundtrack and clever nods to Shiko (the routine stamping of the legs by Sumo wrestlers for intimidation), to the full grappling bout.

Building a criminal empire is no small feat; building a silver screen masterpiece that documents the endeavor ain't easy either. Shout out to every filmmaker from the Social Club community who submitted their creative criminal antics to the #CEO Rockstar Editor contest. After watching every single entry there can be only one winner: a huge congratulations to Social Club member Bill_BENEDICT for his grand jury prize winning entry, “SELLIN' DOPE.” Along with inalienable bragging rights, Bill will be receiving the customized Director's Chair, the super rare GTAV Varsity Jacket complete with Director's patch and the coveted Rockstar Editor trophy.
So kick back on your Office couch, pour yourself an Executive-style liquid lunch, and enjoy these #CEO winner, runner-up and honorable mention entries.
SELLIN' DOPE by Bill_BENEDICT
The lifestyle of a successful Los Santos CEO is a fast paced cocktail of glamour and danger - details Bill_BENEDICT delivers with gusto in his prize-winning vid featuring luxurious Yachts and choppers, fast cars, beautiful women, tense glimpses of Buy missions with drop point flares burning, and stacks endlessly accumulating in the CEO's Office. However, it is not just the content of this video that made it the judges' favorite, but the fantastic visual style, employing impeccable composition, innovative camera tricks and lighting effects to make exceptional use of the Rockstar Editor tool. Bill also exhibits a keen understanding of how to edit to a soundtrack, matching the style and pacing of his clip to the titular song.
The two talented runners-up, ChronicBuzz187 and -tdr81, will each receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse gift card and deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear and collectibles.
WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND by ChronicBuzz187
A radical departure in style from Bill_BENEDICT's entry, ChronicBuzz187 is more Terrence Malick than Tarantino. Atmospheric lingering vignetted shots (including a masterful sequence depicting a Brickade Sell mission), a nuanced narrative about a CEO with a target on his back, and a hypnotizing soundtrack courtesy of The Hics. Be sure to watch through to the end for a brooding finale that ruminates on the true cost of a life of crime.
HY LIFE by -tdr81
An arresting opening POV shot makes for a clever framing device in -tdr81's whirlwind story of the trials and tribulations of a Southern San Andreas criminal Organization mastermind. While -tdr81’s CEO is out living the good life, his henchmen meet a myriad of missteps in their attempts to move high-priced Contraband. In the end however, the CEO takes extreme measures to make sure the job gets done.
Don’t miss a few fantastic honorable mentions that are definitely worth a watch.
BE A CEO by --EVOLUT7ON--

#CEO CASH KINGS LS IN FINANCE AND FELONY by DmC213Cash Kings LS Leader DmC213 rounds up his Executive staff for the ultimate takeover of the Los Santos underworld. With all the mischief and mayhem the Crew cause on the city streets, it can be hard to stay under the radar of the LSPD - leading to a climactic standoff.
Previously:The #CEO Rockstar Editor Contest (Announcement)Presenting the Official Music Video for "Wanderer" by Little Dragon (Rockstar Editor Contest Winner)
The GTA Online Community has risen to the occasion of capturing great footage and Snapmatics of all things Cunning Stunts. From folks like XpertThief maneuvering all the crazy loops and turns of Rockstar-created Stunt Races to GTASeriesVideos showcasing the vehicles, below are some of the most entertaining clips, GIFs and Snapmatics we came across.
Fresh off the official Rockstar Cunning Stunts live stream they did with us a couple of weeks back, the gang from Achievement Hunter continue the thrills and hilarity in a stream of their own. AH go through Racing Alley, Turbine, Downtown Loop and Threading the Needle, all part of what appears to be their new favorite GTA Online update.
From GTASeriesVideos, here's a showcase of the three newest Cunning Stunts vehicles, with a full walkthrough of all customization options AND a showcase of the interior view and performance on the streets of Los Santos. If you're in the market for something with power and considering the Bravado Sprunk Buffalo, MTL Dune or Vapid Contender, check this video out. You can also peruse some other recent rides our old friends tested out here.

About halfway through Point to Point Stunt Race Zebra and sitting in fourth place, Alton Mclawhorn (aka 911 NYC Crew Leader nikobellic250000) clipped a fellow racer mid-jump, a circumstance that easily could have taken him out of contention. Instead - and to his surprise - Alton stuck the landing and moved into first place. Watch here for the full Race and Alton's ultimate victory.

Racing maestro Broughy1322 also found himself in a bit of an airy situation. After completely overshooting a jump, Broughy hung tight through several revolutions and was able to straighten out post-landing and regain composure. That was indeed one hell of a save.

MODESTMOUSE89 risks it all with a perfectly timed shortcut -- complete with a barrel roll -- to blitz past two other hopeful racers in East Coast. By their own admission, they only managed to land this trick once, so you might want to think twice before trying this one at home!
With a penchant for highlighting new GTA Online vehicles, Logic-Films and DeejayJeanP are back, this time honoring the sleek and powerful Emperor ETR1. Deejay intercuts flattering angles of the ETR1 with beautiful shots of a sun-soaked San Andreas to show the obvious appeal of this new Super.

It's time to get the public relations arm of your GTA Online Organization spinning with a piece of cinematic propaganda to play at the AGM and distribute to shareholders and partners. And while cheery stock footage of families waving and co-workers shaking hands may be the traditional approach for such corporate videos, we're looking for a more accurate representation of the types of aggressive venture capitalism your enterprise specializes in. We’ve got some slick prizes fit for any underworld boss to feature in his or her Executive penthouse, so gather your trusted staff and show us what your Organization is made of.
THE CREATIVE BRIEF
Now that both GTA Online: Further Adventures in Finance and Felony and Executives and Other Criminals have launched, we're looking for short films made purely with the Rockstar Editor showcasing your Organization's criminal endeavors.

Remember that you must feature content from GTA Online: Further Adventures in Finance and Felony and/or Executives and Other Criminals in addition to meeting the other requirements detailed below.
The grand prize winning director will receive three exclusive prizes each customized with their Social Club ID. For the first time ever, we are giving away the Rockstar Editor trophy bearing the Rockstar Editor logo, to sit proudly on the mantel of our winner alongside future BAFTAs, Oscars and Palme d'Ors. As if that wasn't enough, the winning director will also be calling the shots for their next epic from the comfort of a customized director's chair, bearing the winner's Social Club ID and the Rockstar Editor logo. Finally, the ultra-rare and exclusive GTAV Varsity Jacket will be yours to wear on set or on location. It also will be customized with your Social Club ID on a special custom patch confirming your status as an award-winning Rockstar Editor auteur.
Two runners-up will each receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse gift card and a deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear, as well as being featured here at the Rockstar Newswire.
