You have heard about it and you might have tried to stay awake to watch it but you missed it because you fell asleep or maybe you forgot to program the DVR. Whatever the case we bring you the Red Dead Redemption Short Film in it’s entirety right here and that’s not all the short film we have here is the extended version. But first here is a little background about the short film.
The full Red Dead Redemption short film, directed by John Hillcoat (director of The Proposition and The Road). The 30 minute short is a glimpse inside the life of partially reformed outlaw John Marston as he journeys through the vanishing American west seeking out his former brothers in arms, all in the name of justice. A varied cast of characters and morally ambiguous situations greet John at every turn, continuously testing his resolve and commitment. 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.
OK I stalled enough here is the short film, enjoy!
