The Nukazooka YouTube channel teamed up with Amazon to create a pretty awesome short for the upcoming Jack Ryan series on Amazon’s Prime network. The short showcases what it’d be like to be Jack Ryan from a first person perspective, and the camera work and effects used to bring it to life are pretty impressive. The first person view is achieved when Ryan is sent a pair of contact lenses that give him technological overlays to work with as he tries to protect a secret briefcase, which in turn allows the viewer to see the world has he sees it.
The short then proceeds into a series of action beats that are accented with some solid VFX work. It’s just a well done YouTube action short that I think most people who read posts on this site will enjoy. Head on up above to do just that.
The Jack Ryan series from Amazon starts streaming on August 31, 2018.
