    #6. Hardcore: A Movie Shot Entirely Like a First-Person Shooter
    Doom blew. If someone videotaped Karl Urban getting a CT scan for two hours, wrote the word "Doom" on the VHS, and then walked around New York violently throwing copies at people, it would have been better received than the actual film. That is, with the exception of that pretty sweet first-person POV scene way late in the movie. Wouldn't it be great if someone just did that for two hours?

    Film fan tip: tiny GIFs don't do awesome footage justice.

    Yeeeees. Currently raising funds on Indiegogo, Hardcore features samurai alien Matt-Damon-puncher Sharlto Copley as the sidekick to a cyborg trying to save his creator/spouse from an evil telekinetic leader of mercenaries -- so basically the slam dunk of film plots to shoot with a camera rig that looks like a robot gimp mask:

    They shot it in first-person because third-person would be torture porn.

    If you think that first-person gunfighting and parkour can't possibly last a few hours, go ahead and watch the trailer and see how long it takes you to look away. We're guessing it will be the exact length of watching it ten times on a loop. Or better yet, check out the short music video the director already did in this style and see if you don't come out of it wanting to mail him all your money, limbs, and kids, in case he needs child extras and body parts to finish his masterpiece.

    If I recall correctly, the SAS went into a mission with a very light kit and armed themselves with the weapons of the people they killed.

    If that helps your immersion any...

    Watch the Bad Motherfucker video. The first minute is a tad slow, but that is a genius video.

    boognishstern, if you like good action videos, this one is fucking incredible.

    The main antagonist is a horrible actor. Horrible. But if you can get past him, the video is one of the best indie films I have seen on YouTube. I recommend sitting through the whole thing. But it gets absolutely epic from about 4:20 on.

    One last one. Another first person video. Lots of tits, ass, and violence. Not work safe whatsoever.

    NSFW

    Interesting idea. It's going to take some great writing to hold the viewers' attention because of the weird way they're telling the story.

    I would be interested in seeing a movie done like this is you had a top of the line writer, director, cinematographer, etc.

    Maybe I'm too old, but there's no way in hell I could sit through more than 90 seconds of a movie like this.
    Makes my brain hurt

    First person is great for games, but it's only good in small doses for movies or TV. Feels gimmicky very quickly.

    tried watching the test footage makes me feel old cause i cant imagine watching a whole movie done like this. I guess CRANK tried for that and mostly succeeded but it was very gimmicky. CRANK 2 couldn't recapture the same weirdo magic.
