Right now as far as GTA IV news updates goes, we’re going through a real “calm before the storm”. Stay tuned though, the next magazine preview that we know of will come from OPM that goes on sale next week, May 2nd, in the United Kingdom. To keep us busy until then, Jordan from our partner site, PlanetGTA, released yet another Grand Theft Auto video.
You might remember a few weeks back he released the GTA Wii Trailer as an April fools joke, which in fact did fool a few people. Since then, he’s worked on something much bigger than that.
Most of you will probably not know that the song used in the first GTA IV trailer is from the 1982 documentary film Koyaanisqatsi, with the actual song composed by Philip Glass. To view a segment of the film, view this YouTube video.
Based on Koyaanisqatsi, the GTA video follows this concept and uses footage from previous Grand Theft Auto titles to recreate this portion of the film. Here’s the description…
How do you convey to someone the dramatic leap between the old GTA games and GTA IV? What do you do if you want to be as effective as possible? What do you do to give people the maximum visual possible experience and take it to the next level?
The first trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV contained a song called ‘Pruitt Igoe’ from the 1982 film KOYAANISQATSI. The style of the trailer mimicked the ‘Pruitt Igoe’ portion of the film. The aim of the following video is to recreate that portion of the film using GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas.
Now, onto the actual video. There’s an array of links where you can get this from, also be sure to check out the discussion topic on our forum over here and leave a comment if you like.
