Cupcakes by Scott Rogers
It’s rare to see someone make a video to their own song. It’s very rare for the result to be really good.
So here we have a blend of typography and motion graphics set to a remix of the classic Season 1 song. I’ll be honest – upon checking this out in the submissions I was so happy to see something utilizing typography and rocking it. In PMV’s nowadays, words are generally not the main visual focus. To see a scene set-up with the lyrics in mind is refreshing. We need more typographies in this fandom.
I love how whimsical, bright and vivid the video is. It’s a lot of fun to see creativity flowing like this, and the colourful graphics really fit with the show style. The animation is pretty smooth and the timing is spot on. Yeah, it’s a bit repetitive but that’s to be expected when making a remix of a 24 second song. I appreciate the subtle things added throughout to keep things fresh, like the variations on the song sheets. There’s a few movements which could be refined but overall Scott did a fantastic job for his first PMV. Huge props to him and I’d really love to see more content in this style.
