If you wanted to make a short film about the American Civil War, what would you use? Because these guys chose GTA 5, and it worked out really well.
GTA 5 crew BranberryMuffin put this video together; it was uploaded by member Sonny Evans. The team has put together a number of short movies in GTA 5, and you can watch them all via this playlist.
I understand this video has caused a certain amount of "feelings" among people who have watched it in full, so closed my eyes and sang "la la la" through most of it. I advise you to do the same.
