A fantastic competition directly from the guys over at Rockstar, a Rockstar Editor contest in which fans of the game have been tasked with creating the OFFICIAL Music Video for “Leave”, a fantastic song by the very talented artists @Wavves, @Alchemist, @ohnothedisrupt and @sweetvvalley

For the wannabe Vinewood Directors out there, you’ve had a couple of weeks to get to grips with the powerful Rockstar Editor and now’s your time to shine – for the opportunity to have your work selected as the official music video for the song, all you need to do is craft a suitable music video!

The song is about leaving a bad situation. Whether that means a criminal enterprise or activity, or a bad romantic relationship, or something else entirely is up to you to interpret as the music video director. Just have fun with it and don’t be afraid to get a little weird along the way. 

We’ve attached the Soundcloud URL for the song you have been tasked to create your Music Video for, have a listen – or just get stuck in straight away and jump into GTA V!

Entering the competition is easy. Simply create a video in the Rockstar Editor using GTAV PC and publish it to the Rockstar Games Social Club via the in-game menu. From there, head to the My Videos page on Social Club, and tag your video with the word “leave” to enter it into the contest. A few important points:

  • The video must feature the song “Leave” by Wavves as its soundtrack, and only that song.
  • Your video must be between 3 and 5 minutes in length.
  • The video must be published to Rockstar Games Social Club and tagged with the word ‘leave’ between now and 11:59pm ET on June 8th to be eligible.
  • For legal reasons, only residents of certain countries are eligible to win. Full terms can be found here
  • The video must be made entirely using the Rockstar Editor, to make it fair on everyone joining

Now this is an incredible competition, make sure you take part and tweet us your entries to @RockstarWire – We would definitely like to check them out!


Finally, PC players – make sure to publish a video using the Rockstar Editor to grab yourself an in-game “The Lonliest Robot in Great Britain” t-shirt, this will be awarded to all eligible participants after the competition ends, and the videos published don’t have to be entries for the competition in order to be eligible for the T-shirt! We have attached the shirt in the post, see what you think – personally, we feel it looks pretty dang cool!

Rockstar will be sitting down with Wavves in June to pick the winners and runners up, so you have until then to get your entries in

Well, what are you waiting for? Get creating!


The shirt on offer, for those who publish videos using the Rockstar Editor over the next few weeks.
