Loyalty by Epsi1
As we lurch into another hiatus, Bronycon looms closer and us PMV judges are fighting fiercely over the contest results. Today, I’d like to take a breather and talk about a regular PMV from Epsi1. I’ve previously been acquainted with Epsi through my livestreams, so it’s nice to see him creating his own content.
So here we have an unfinished yet interesting video set to music from Phony. His upbeat style is one I’ve craved from PMV’s for a while, so it’s nice to see a video utilizing this. There’s a lot of different concepts briefly dipped into through the video, but overall it feels slightly bare. For feedback, I would suggest to have more actual editing throughout. While it’s good to let clips “breathe” with timing, the pacing of the music suggests that there could be more going on. With the suggested opening and song theme, it would’ve been nice to see a consistent focus on Dash too. That being said, the effects aren’t too bad and it feels like Epsi may currently be in the experimentation phase with AE. It’s good to see attempts being made rather than nothing at all. Some nice typography motion in the later half.
