Review

This video-game-like film is the feature-length debut by a gamer and amateur filmmaker Mathieu Weschler. He worked on a number of French commercials and music videos before, and filmed this animation using the 3D engine of and assembling Grand Theft Auto(GTA). The film seems less polished compared to animation films we could easily watch in movie theaters, but that does not affect the audience’s understanding of the narrative and their enjoyment. This film is a super-low budget film cost about 600 Euros. Most of the production cost was spent on buying the hard drive, and the director could reduce the labor fees that could take up the bulk of the production cost. The director comments that this reduction was possible because the original game GTA was well made, and its characters, background, and the contents could be used to sufficiently convey the story. The shortcomings of this film are the limitation within the game’s engine to perform the characters’ movements naturally and the awkward voice acting, which could be a barrier to some viewers; however, young generations who are familiar with video games will find this animation enjoyable and as an exciting adventure. The plot is simple. Here is the rundown of this film: A trash car driver in New York moonlights as a vigilante, collecting other forms of trash in NYC streets. One day, he finds his favorite dancer is killed and chases after this twisted serial killer.The film can just be an independent long animation, but we hope this machinima is viable and brings more active animation film creation.
