And I Think To Myself by TheLightLeavesThee

Equestria is certainly a ‘wonderful world’ until you consider the amount of explosions, mythological carnivores, and traveling salesmen it contains.  Yikes.

Luckily, we’re here on earth, with the internet, so that we can view this lovely video by an editor who was long thought to be eaten by a traveling salesman from Equestria.  TheLightLeavesThee returns in an epic and super-dramatic PMV that really puts a new perspective on our fantastic fiction of frivolous horses.

One of my favorite parts of this video is indeed how TLLT puts a spin on the classic land of ponies.  But another is how he used the epic finale scenes from the show and how he balanced those with effects and showed constraint.  It’s easy for everyone to shove in their favorite scenes from FiM along with their favorite song.  However, this video starts with smaller scenes and crescendos into the big ones, which really helps build an epic sense of progression.  This is an important thing to learn if you plan on doing pony music videos of your own one day, and this particular piece is something worth looking at carefully.

Turn your sunshiny Equestria into a world of action and creepy piano notes below!

Please Don’t Break Me by HARUS STUDIO

We need an entire season of only Best Pony Fluttershy.  I’d settle for just a movie though. Or a side series.

As for today we’ll have to be content with a lovely PMV by a relatively new editor: HARUS STUDIO.  Apparently this is only their third pony music video and it’s powerful, professional, and pretty promising.

The amazing thing about this video is its sense of atmosphere.  The movement and effects are absolutely stunning when combined with the music, and there’s such a great use of background and foreground.  It also has a style very suitable for build-ups in the beginning and when the break down hits we find an incredibly appropriate change to straight videos of the best pony in the world.  All of these things really get you into the video when combined with toned lighting and smooth colors.

Enjoy a well edited, well thought out, and well presented PMV below!

P.S. If you’re wondering why Fluttershy is so sad, she saw that this editor only has a couple of subs. :(  Go subscribe!

Celestia Loves You by Terriccota Pie

832400__safe_princess+luna_princess+celestia_meme_animated_upvotes+galore_image+macro_stool_spinning_artist-colon-anticularpony

So let me be honest- I have no idea what is going on in this video or what Terricotta Pie had going through his head when he made it. I do however know that it is wonderfully silly.

I really don’t even know what to else write about this other than Celestia loves you, Twilight has a very Russian accent, and Pinkie is silly.

Just watch it.

Lost by Alanj2007 Games

Holy editing workflows Batman!  Alanj2007 is back with another video less than a week after his previous Scribble piece.  Apparently, love is in the air this February as this new one centers around the ship you see above^^.

Something that our editor seems to be fond of in his own style is the particle generated stars that provide a nice flare, and of course, typography.  The particles fit really nicely with the song and the atmosphere of the video in general.  The typography movement can be a bit too jumpy or too smooth at times, but overall it’s a nice thing to watch.

Set sail in your favorite canon-equipped ship and expect a mix of ponies, words, humans with oddly shaped bodies, and more below!

Tranquilize by Dr_Stables

Hope everybody is having a lovely late very late Monday evening!

Tonight we have a surprising treat: the doctor is in!  That’s right folks, Dr_Stables has returned with another fantastically fabulous PMV for everyone to enjoy (unless you’re not fond of flashing lights, major epileptic warning here).

The best feature of this vid is the effects, regardless of their pulsating qualities.  All of the T.V. distortion and general wave movement makes the whole thing really fit into The Killers’ style of music.  If there is one problem with the video though, it’s also the effects.  We get so much of this awesome editing that it can be extremely overwhelming.  Perhaps if there had been a lesser variety of different stylizations, it would have been easier to follow.

Check out some sibling building below, and don’t forget to sub to the doc!

[PMV] Scribble by AlanJ2007 Games

It's still technically Valentines Day!
It’s still technically Valentines Day!

Here’s to another first PMV! This time by AlanJ2007.  Clearly this isn’t this editor’s first go-round with an editing program or After Effects, as the video is very polished and glitzy. As seems to be the more recent standard, text and color correction are very prominent but are well done.  According to him it’s been heavily inspired by many editors works and it certainly shows.

Enjoy this upbeat PMV by AlanJ2007!

Die by J woody

One of the best parts of this fandom is crossovers.  It leaves literally infinite possibilities for ponies!

If you’re into a show that stars four colorful characters abbreviated in the form of R.W.B.Y., then you’ll love what we have tonight.  While the title of the video is slightly blunt, it’s the title of a song from the show that’s being crossed with MLP, and no ponies were harmed in the making (we think).

The visuals rely heavily on some literal interpretation, so it’s great that the singer here has a clear voice for ease of understanding.  It’s also easy to see that the song style matches extremely well with our pony friends; each is both aesthetically cute and clean while thematically presenting some darker aspects.  In this respect, the editor gets bonus points for a nice matchup.  The effects were short and simple when used, and one of the only problems I had with this was that it might be too literal at times and that the HUB logos are always sticking out at the corners of the screen.

So whether you’re for primarily pure ponies or a criss cross of crossovers, you should check out the nice PMV by J woody below!

Sword Art Online 2 – Courage by SpectraPony

twilight_sword_art_online___commission__by_derpylover-d6a0443

Sword Art Online and Ponies. Yes! Today, I bring you a PMV based of the anime series “Sword Art Online”. The video parodies the opening of the series and it fits really well. The transitions and custom animations are impressive. It represents SAO’s concept very well with the ‘next-gen, futuristic, virtual gaming’ style.

It has begun by Hash Metal

Purple smart does not look like a happy friendship pony from this angle.  Maybe it’s the lighting.

Either way, she does kick flank, and so does this PMV from the relatively unknown editor: Hash Metal.  As you can tell by the name, this video is going to feature some rockin’ music with fittingly similar effects, so if you have a fear of flashy feature films, this might not be for you.

However if you can handle the well-placed white flashes, scene changes, and other effects, you’ll probably enjoy this.  My only displeasure with it is that it uses all of the overused scenes in the PMV world.  I think we might literally see things from all finales except for the Gala.  But unlike most videos, the song actually fits with the epic visuals and everything seems to be well in order.

Get your dose of power-packed ponies below!
