My First Full-Length GTA IV Machinima

#1 Posted by GunGraveTZA (34 posts) -

Hey guys. I used to try and create machinima, but recently I stopped as I just don't have the time or equipment to do it (the only capture card I have is an EasyCap, and that only records at 50Hz and 90% of games use 60Hz, plus it's SD recording). Anyway, I have been started doing voice acting on the side instead. Recently I got offered a part in a GTA IV machinima, but I noticed a few small errors in the script, so I suggested a few changes to improve it.

Long story short, I ended up being credited as the co-writer for it, and it's now finally out after 3 months of work. This is the longest machinima I have ever created by FAR, with a total running time of 67 minutes. I also play the role of the English boxer, Harry.

El Boxeador follows the story of Felipe Chavez, a man whose family moved to NYC a few years ago. But he never got used to it. He always had to turn to a life of crime to make a living. But now, he has a chance to become what he's always wanted to be. One of the greatest fighters of all time.

Feel free to watch it here (sorry about the extremely over-amplified audio). Let me know what you think, constructive critisism is really appreciated.

Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make them a douche man. I jumped through it a little, and it seems alright to be honest. I don't really watch machinima but as I jumped through I noticed the voice acting is among the best I've seen in any machinima videos.

Thanks guys, glad to see you're enjoying it!
 
And yeah, I'm surprised by how good this turned out. I don't watch machinima a LOT, but I do watch it, and this is honestly the most in-depth machinima I know in terms of having a good story.
 
It's still not perfect but definiately head and shoulders above most, IMO.
