Metal Gear Solid in Real Life - Behind the Scenes

Immersion: Metal Gear Solid in Real Life - Behind the Scenes

The cast and crew of Immersion have found themselves lost in an abandoned warehouse with nothing but an abundant supply of boxes and limited supply of wits. As the days drag on some find themselves drawn to a more base nature while others hold onto the facade of civilization, causing a rift between friends as two separate factions arise. The strong prey on the weak and the weak prey on the boxes. Spoilers: The whole thing is a strange metaphor for purgatory.

    Thanks for making these Behind the Scenes bits! I always love seeing how a production comes together, and this one gave me a new appreciation for the amount of work you guys put into it. I didn't even notice how slick the lighting was until this video pointed it out. WOW. Don't know how you guys do it, but you do it well!

    All of these Immersion episodes lately have been few of the best videos period, including Fallout, Metal Gear, Five Nights and of course Mothership Gus. Cannot wait what's more planned, as these have been way too amazing.

    I could watch RT Behind the Scenes all day long, it would be awesome for a lot more. It would also be amazing if there was a whole bunch of old unused b-roll and behind the scenes footage to be edited together as a larger behind the scenes.

    I really like these behind the scenes stuff, gives recognition to all the crew at Roosterteeth that don't regularly appear on camera, but are still a vital part of all the entertainment.


    Also Marcus is awesome.

    New immersion idea in a similar thread: Batman Arkham Immersion. They have to take out a room of armed guards while sneaking around with grappling hooks swinging on gargoyles. Perhaps this idea is too ambitious... and dangerous... and implausible...be cool tho.

    • Jaysin_D FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      This is something that could probably actually be done. They would have to set up a warehouse much like they did here, with platforms (gargoyles) safely rigged up with ladders leading up to them, they could repurpose the shelving used here to some degree, and rope swings or zip-lines (grappling hooks) leading to other platforms. Batarangs could be made with some sort of soft boomerang. The goons could wear safety gear as well as the lab rats, and a safety harness for when they are in the air. However it would be rather risky still, and money and time consuming.

    I love this, Marcus and the crew are goddamn artists. The set looked beautiful! It kills me that so so much effort and time and love went into this and 99% of the youtube comments were "boo I liked Michael better." I hope everyone can appreciate the goddamn artistry that went into this with this video. You guys rock!!

    I hope they do more BTS like this, because there like many documentary's that really make you see all the time and effort put into them.

      No worries, the BTS episodes have been well received, and I imagine they will only get more in depth and robust.

    I had to re-watch 0:20 3 times because it looked like Gavin turned into a manaquinn. He reeally good at planking as a panic response.

    I presumed they were just reusing a Lazer Team set, not constructing one from scratch just for this episode.

    • MLaPorte FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RT's Production Designer

      1 year ago

      Nope, we really did make that set from scratch. We do this for virtually every project. We do try to recycle as much as possible, but usually each project is so different things can't be used but every once in awhile. I can say that we did use this warehouse for some training sequences in Lazer Team. Keep an eye out for it!

    I never even thought about the fact that they'd have to build all those boxes and put the logo on. Well done to Marcus and the team! It looks awesome.

      Making the boxes was probably the easiest part. Getting the graphics to match our cardboard color so it would look printed on the box was not so easy. Took about 10 test prints before I was able to dial in the correct brown color.
