A tilt shifted GTA 5 looks a lot like a violent SimCity

The world of GTA 5 (opens in new tab) feels positively massive, so it takes some impressive trickery to make it feel tiny. That's the whole idea behind Tilt Shift, the latest video from prolific Rockstar Editor filmographer ehmaysi. It uses the eponymous photography technique coupled with a low frame rate to simulate stop motion, making it feel like a bunch of those little plastic figurines are living their lives and doing crimes instead of high-res 3D models.

My other favorite selection from ehmaysi is this video about a Martian's struggle with feelings of irrelevance, eventually finding their identity in a filthy strip club and emerging like a butterfly as a beautiful astronaut. Or that's how I choose to interpret it, anyway.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
