Youtube Sensation: A lesson in editing

An interesting find for today. One of the latest Youtube sensations  is a wonderful bit of editing work on the part of one “MichaelBarnes.” Barnes has taken the infamous “No Russian” mission from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, as well as numerous scenes revolving around it, and turned out this piece of cinematic gaming glory. Also, if you had any doubt before of why the mission was so controversial at the time, well, you can certainly see why in this first hand look.

The video has its little twitches and flaws, but those are mostly issues in the game itself. The work is wonderful and I really want to see what else this Barnes fellow can do. Seriously, to all you splicers out there–this is how you edit!

Here’s the video:
