Director Statement

I was inspired to make this fan film when GTA San Andreas had just gotten released on the iPad app store. This game was a huge part of my childhood, so I just had to try it out the mobile version. After playing it, I felt nostalgic and the thought of making a real life version hit me. My goal was to make the video as accurate as possible to the gameplay. After wrapping up everything, we released it online. So far we've received an overwhelming amount of positive response, and in Bangladesh it has become a beloved creation. Hopefully you all will like it as well.
