Spanish production team Zapruder Pictures has faithfully recreated the "GTA V" trailer using Madrid as backdrop.
The debut trailer for "Grand Theft Auto V" racked up 31 million views following its release 12 months ago and set expectations for the September 2013 title, helping make it the fastest-selling video game of all time.
Now, Spanish outfit Zapruder has compressed the five-minute reveal into a two-minute interpretation, swapping a satirical Los Angeles for real world Madrid.
The montage acts as a promo reel for the team, who have been scoping out space in Almería, a city on the country's south coast, well known as a filming location for a host of productions including "El Cid," "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," Almodóvar's "Talk To Her" and the Serge Leone/Clint Eastwood "Dollars Trilogy."
That's because Zapruder's next project is the creation of a fan film based on "Red Dead Redemption," a revisionist Western from same studio group behind "GTA V," seeking €12,500 via an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in order to get the scheme underway (igg.me/at/rdr).
Previous shorts "Max Payne: Valhalla" and "Modern Warfare: Sunrise" ran at €3,500 and €5,500 apiece, with the more ambitious "Red Dead Redemption: Seth's Gold" to divide the bulk of its reserves between equipment, accomodation, food and travel, production design and set costs.
