The Convenience Store, 2018, machinima from Grand Theft Auto V in-game editor (PC), voice-over by Jonne Hansson, August Bällgren and Evelina Maria Odette Jönsson, sound design by Agatha Lewandowski, special thanks to Mattis Lindmark and Jon Svensson (HUMlab, Umeå University)
In Jonne Hansson's latest machinima, three recently graduated artists who attended Umeå Academy of Fine Arts in Sweden move to the fictional city of Los Santos (a virtual replica of Los Angeles) hoping to make it big in the Artworld. But the American dream soon turns into a nightmare: they all hit a brick wall. One day, they accidentally meet each other in a convenience store. A meta-referential conversation among simulacra ensues.
