Rockstar Games Presents a Red Dead Redemption Short Film

By Josh Wright

June 9, 2010

Developers rarely go into so much detail to tell the back story of a game and it’s characters. Rockstar Games isn’t just any game developer and Red Dead Redemption isn’t just any game. Directed by John Hillcoat, the 30 minute short is a glimpse inside the life of partially reformed outlaw John Marston as he journeys through the vanishing American west.  

Playing out against the modernizing frontier and the emergence of the federal government, John’s story takes him everywhere from the American west to south of the border in Mexico. Using only in-game assets and original camera work and editing, Hillcoat re-imagines the massive world of Red Dead Redemption and brings the story to a brand new audience. Check it out now!
