ROUND 20

SPECIAL FORCES


5f4e5a647437385f15a4128a1446a232.jpg


This was not supposed to be the next round theme but after see so much happy feedback after thought that

the "Special Forces" round would be real I decided to move the planned round theme of this month to the next month.


Special Forces Round will accept any entry related to Policial Special Forces, probably the most known Special Forces on the world is the United States "S.W.A.T." (Special Weapons And Tactics)


Almost every country in the world has their own Special Forces unit with a different name. 

Special Units Forces usually intervene in situations where the normal Police forces need back-up of a more trained and equipped unit for the problem.


Console users has enough components in the game for make their own Special Forces videos.


Please, have in mind that Special Forces are not Military units, they usually intervene in serious situations in the own country. 

Special Forces intervenes many times in situations where there's held hostages by a terrorist or violent group.


Any video related to this kind of forces will be allowed to participe. 


Best of luck to all participants!

519791-101_Warning-128.png

NEW RULE IMPLEMENTED


After spoke about this with Final Flame Pro some months ago we both agreed in implement


From now participe with a video which have been participated in 2 previous rounds it will no longer be allowed.

From now participe with a video which have won 1 previous round it will no longer be allowed.


So, if you want participe for the third time with the same video, this one it will not be added to entries list.

And if you try to participe with a video which won a previous competition it will not be added to the entries list either.


I'll check all videos (searching them on this post) before add them on the Entries list.


However this doesn't mean that you cannot share more than 2 times on this topic, you can always share old videos how many

times you want (always with certain time between each sharing for avoid massive spam).


This rule was planned for try to make this contest more equilibrate for all participants and for focus better on the Round Theme.

Some videos have been also featured a lot on the past and now they have huge numbers of views, this is also for try to give

priority to new videos with a small amount of views. Anyways all kind of videos which participe for the first time are still welcome to participe, with 100.000 views or just few it doesn't matter.


We hope you'll agree and follow this new rule.

Is for the best of all

The Takeover I am not too sure could be a submission, you see, in the story, the Agent on board is ex special forces, and CIA. Then the Navy is sending in some top dog special ops in the story (don't want to ruin the plot). But I guess they could be classed as military. 

No big deal if it can't enter, The Takeover is still coming along well ;)

Hi all

Would like to get involved in this but few questions first if you don't mind. On ps4

Do I need to complete the story mode to unlock stuff for rock star editor

Do I need to have other players to help if I want more then 2 actors in same scene

Is there any decent guides out on the Internet for newbies. I'm amazed on some of the videos have been posted on here and it must be a challenge to pull those off on consoles

Hello my friend. I can answer a few of your questions despite me being a PC GTA V film maker. Being as some things you asked apply to all platforms. 

 

1. No you do not need to necessarily complete the story mode to unlock Rock star Editor. All its features are ready to use from the bat. Now.. as you are a PS4 user, if you want to unlock certain characters like... Idk lets say, Solomon Richards, Steve Haines and Devin Weston. Then you need to unlock them in directors mode by completing story mode missions. Now thats not a problem for us PC users as we all use trainers to spawn these characters in. But if your on PS4, I believe you have to do it this way. 

 

2. On PS4? I think so yes.. Unless a console user wants to help me out here? I think you need to go online with buddies to act as other actors on console mode. While PC, allows just the AI to take over actors using a trainer. To be honest, its hard on consoles from what I have seen trying to use multiple actors, unless you have a big online friend group to be your Vinewood Stars. 

 

3. Of course there is sir! Want to know the best way to get a guide? Just ask around here. I've been around for a few months now, and the people I have met are truly fantastic. You can get great help here. And there are also videos and articles on the internet to help too. But I found the best way to learn was to self teach myself. To get you kicked off, ill show you a few tips I use in my videos. 

1. Always have your camera zoomed on 1.30x or more... This might just be a personal preference of mine. But it really gives it a more.. "normal" look. To be honest when I see people use the zoom all the way out, it looks very cinematic, and odd looking, as the FOV really gets to large. Sure, if someone is really creative, it can work for a certain thing. But I would recommend, 1.30x or above. Think the closer the better, especially for up close character shots.

2. Depth of Field.. It really makes a different. I suggest setting it to manual, and using it to blur out unimportant things, and the focus on what the audience should be looking at. Guide their eyes. You see in the movies, that when a character is up close to the camera, he is crystal clear, while the room he is in is blurred behind him.. Then he turns his head, and looks down at a gun, the camera moves and then the gun is crystal clear while the rest of the background is blurred. So the Audience pays attention to whats important, as well as this wonderful "blur" looks very good and cinematic. 

3. Blends and camera shakes. Cameras shouldn't be fixed still. They are usually held by someone, or on a moving cart or machine. I recommend using hand shake for all general shots at 5, and action shots at 6-7. Someone running frantically away from a man with an axe, air turbulence is a great one to show the dramaticness and the camera shaking because of the heavy running of boots. Use Smooth blends in scenes, it gives that nice flow of feel. Of course don't overdo it. 

There are many more things I could tell you, but every director learns best in my opinion from experimenting themselves.. watching movies, old and new. And looking at popular GTA V film makers you tubes, You heard of Duggy? He's great. You can check out my channel too if you wish ;). And there are many other great directors here, AxelEurope, FinalFlamePro, Jacob, Old Snake. And Many more, and Ill tell you this, you'll notice everyone has their own. "style" of filming, thats what makes movies great, they are never the same in how they are made. And you'll have your own style too. I wish you good luck, and check back here if you need any more questions answered! 

 

Stay safe and Well

@Jukie PS4 has limitations, but some of the best Machinimas I've seen have come from console users. Good editing and camera work is more important than lots of mods. You will need friends to help you out with multiple characters in one shot but the smart thing to do is to plan your story around your current set up. There's plenty of great stories to be told with just one character.

@Havs Love the aerial footage of the planes and your creative use of props and smoke.

I think the character movement needs a little fixing. Always watch that your character doesn't make rapid or unnatural movements as it looks a bit odd. Maybe slow down areas which will make things look a bit better.

I cannot accept your entry because I don't think your video it's properly related to the current active round Special Forces, your video would've been a perfect entry for our recently past round 18 Bikers. Sorry :-/

It's not part of the contest but I'd like to share it, some members from GTAF have been helping me big time get this series done and I appreciate it greatly!

I just released episode 3 of my cinematic Machinima web series for GTA V.

GTA Online Stories is a web show that creates a story using the GTA Online characters and the Rockstar Editor on PS4 and cohesively edits it together with the in game cutscenes.

Hey everyone,

Forgive me if this isn't the proper way of introducing oneself here but I just found out about this community today and am pretty stoked to see a group more active than the subreddit. Here's a link to one of my more notable works I did entirely on PS4 with the help of a voice actor:

Also a full project I did awhile back called Calypso:

I really look forward to exploring all of your works since it looks like both console and PC machinimas are equally embraced here and maybe participating in the contests somewhere down the line. Thanks.

Only had time to watch the 1st video. But being as I am a huge fan of the Long Dark, with nearly 300 hours in that game. That spin off video was beautiful! Very well done my friend. Welcome to the community by the way. Its a great one, stories and channels that are all unique and great. If your interested in checking out my work, here's a link: https://www.youtube....9kOdzZy4PwOtFlw

Keep it up! Stay Safe and Well. :)
