|A GTA V ad was shot during the weekend in front of my building. This are some photos I took.|
|I've updated the album with 2 more photos, the last photo shows some guys wearing colorful hoodies, they walked behind the suit guy at all times.|
I can't seem to find these anymore. Anyone have a link?
From this topic.
From the OP over there:
|Brief description of the ad:|
The guy in the suit of the last photo exits the totaled car while talking to the camera, as he makes his way out, the car explodes and he walks by the car under the trees while some other effects are set behind him (I managed to see these in a monitor) The shooting took place on Saturday April 20th and lasted until late Sunday.
|The staff was very open about people walking by and taking pictures. Since the shooting blocked my garage door for quite some time, they offered me to sit in the... tent? where they keep the monitors and watch the end result, they even offered some coffee!|
|They were all very nice people, offered the neighbors apologies for all the noise during the night and gave the admins of the building some money for the trouble (around 450USD if my conversion is right, This was in México) so, overall it was a nice experience.|
Another thing i noticed is that people thought they were shooting a movie, it wasn't until the GTA V banner was put that a few realized what they were looking at but for most people it didn't ring a bell.
|One of my friends took a video during a rehearsal, I'll ask him to upload and i'll post later!|
Update on the video:
|My friend is in school right now As soon as he gets it uploaded i'll deliver.|
On why he's sure why it's for an advertisement, and not for example something similar to the GTA 2 live action stuff:
|I asked to the staff that was around.|
On the subject of car brands:
|Yea, the totaled car had no brands, the police car also didn't have any logos on it. There was also an old-Charger-like car that I didn't managed to get a picture of.|
The chevy on the 3rd picture wasn't part of the ad, it was a guy trying to get his car into the garage.
On the crashed car:
|They had an already crashed car towed in, the pole is a prop. So as the trees that cover the car, they also had some fake rubble (styrofoam) that reminded me of the leaked pictures from Transformers 3 back in the day.|
The ever enigmatic Adriaan had this to say:
|This is a SONY commercial for PlayStation. It has nothing to do with Rockstar Games or GTAV.|
Sony decided to place the V logo in their ad.
When confronted with Adriaan's post, Reddit's OP has this to say:
|I asked one of the guys in the crew and they told me it was a GTA V ad, that's all I know :S|
|They were pretty open to talk about what they were shooting, don't know where he gets that. At the end of the day i just posted this because i know GTA is big around here thought you guys might like it.|
This is why the photos were removed from imgur by the OP on reddit:
|Sorry guys, I just had a visit from the production company that asked me very politely to take the photos down. He said this was just a quarter of the whole effort and therefore they would like to keep it under wraps. I'm taking down the pictures as i type.|
