Strangers by MrKupKake
Hey guys, I’m Sambohh. I haven’t been around too long so I doubt many of you have heard of me. And come to think of it, the only PMV content I’ve ever made is a 20 second section for the Collaboratory’s latest PMV. But that doesn’t matter, what matters is the fact that I have around 3 years of video editing knowledge, so that’s a plus. Either way, I’m glad to be a part of the PMVToday team, and hope I can throw out many PMV posts for you guys to enjoy in the future. Let’s get started shall we?
Well first off we have this beautiful PMV Animation from Mr KupKake, for the song strangers by Scratch21 (feat.EileMonty). Honestly, this video was destined to be a hit from the get go. Because it features Button Mash, a popular character that we have seen little of since the JanAnimations takedown. Not only that, but the song featured is sung by none other than ShadyVox, the voice actor for Button Mash. It was just begging to be made, and KupKake stepped up to the challenge.
This video is much more than just a simple animation with show characters lip synched up to a good song. The creator made sure to use particular lighting, transitions and camera placements, to capture the feel of the song as much as possible. It speaks to the viewer on an emotional level, and really pulls at your heartstrings. Clever effects were used, such as a white vignette to clarify that the characters are reminiscing on their past. The animation links with the lyrics very well, without going off them completely. And the ending is just stunning. The way they hang their heads and cry really hits you hard.
It’s just such a well though out, well made and memorable video that I think will go very far, and become a classic that will be remembered years in the future.
