Gear shootouts pop up on YouTube all the time, usually touting the benefits of this bit of kit over another. But this particular video doesn’t do any of that. Instead, this “shootout” is a bit more literal, with a little gang warfare using weaponised cameras and a not-entirely-unexpected twist at the end.
It was posted to the YouTube channel Mediastorm影视飓风 (which apparently means “Mediastorm film and television hurricane”, according to Google), and while the audio is Chinese, it features English subtitles. It goes on for about five minutes, but it’s just awesome. Really nicely done effects, a few good jokes and fantastic filming and editing.
They also posted up a behind the scenes video, although YouTube doesn’t want to auto-generate subtitles, so if you don’t speak the language (I don’t), it may be difficult to follow. Perhaps you’ll be able to pick up a few tips and ideas from the visuals, though.
If you are able to translate it and submit subtitles to YouTube, I’m sure a lot of people would appreciate it.
But for now, just enjoy the hilarity and brilliance of the final video. They did a fantastic job.
