Red Dead Redemption Fan Film Captures Old Western Aesthetic
A few good fans of Red Dead Redemption have created a short film in tribute to the aforementioned game.
Production company Silk Dog Films combines the content and subject matter of Red Dead Redemption with a spaghetti western-meets-grindhouse style, and have since released the film: “Red Dead Redemption – The Hanging of Bonnie McFarlane.” Watch it below.
“This film is an irreverent approach to the ‘Red Dead’ franchise, that borrows the aesthetics of our favorite directors of yesteryear. For instance; the smash zooms are a homage to Corbucci’s Django. The oddly paced slow motion & brightly colored squibs pays tribute to Sam Peckinpahs ‘The Wild Bunch’.”
Silk Dog Films is made up of Adam Flohr and David Lambert of Temecula, CA, whom according to their press release “slaved” over the film, which was mostly recorded in 2012, for many months to give it its 70′s film aesthetic.
