So Awesome Job to HanZh and Congratulations to him for winning First Place!

Heathens by Sambohh

mlp___awakening_of_twilight_sparkle__s_dark_side_by_unknownhedgehog-d4xjoxo

Hey guys, I’m back with another PMV made by the great Sambohh :)

After years of editing experience and making a bunch of collab parts, Sam has finally made his first solo PMV. And must I say, he did an amazing job! It did great with starting off all calm and it really starts to build up at the end, with very nice clip selection and great lip-syncing. My favorite part was the clips matted with the text and Twilight falling down into the Crystal Mines. And all of that action going on at the end of the video was amazing as well. So great job to Sam, and I can’t wait for what he will do next :D

(Also BronyCon is almost here! #HYPE)

Bad Machine | PMV Collab by Tisteve

vinyl_scratch___dj_pon3___gr4p_ica1_by_rariedash

Hey, this is daspacepony! I’m another new author on PMVToday and have been making PMVs and joining PMV collabs since January 2015, here to showcase another amazing PMV!

Do you like crazy glitch effects? Dubstep? Fancy visuals? Collaborations? Then boy, do we have a good one here. Long time PMV maker, Tisteve has hopped on the collab-ing bandwagon and has surely brought the best people in for this style of PMV. Especially Pixel3000nerd and Alanj2007games who are known to make the best “glitch effect” PMVs around, did their parts wonderfully. Not forgetting HarmonicWind’s lovely typography and custom scenes for the rap part of the song; TiMan, Ashie and Tisteve, all bringing their own unique twists to their part of the collab, which is what being in a collab is all about. Besides the slightly too frequent use of typography and little use of visuals in HarmonicWind’s part that felt a little off within the PMV’s heavy effect, heavy visual feel, the whole PMV just blended wonderfully together with the song it went and that’s pretty much the most important thing about a PMV to me. :D

I can’t wait to see more amazing PMVs like this one in the community! Check out the PMV below!

The CMC Never Stopped Believin’ by Eldonde

we_got_our_cutie_marks__by_dennybutt-d9cm4zt

I can’t be the only one who got insane chills seeing these three achieve their goals. And what better way to celebrate than with a montage set to a Journey classic?

Here we have a pretty great PMV from Eldonde that quite frankly needed to happen. It’s the typical clip-show of the CMC that you’d expect but there’s quite a bit of thought behind it. It remains faithful to the lyrics, shows off some crucial scenes of the three and has some nice sync. I will say it’s a tad slower paced than I’d expect, which works well for the intro but I think it’d be nice to get more cuts in there for the sake of impact. Still, the decision to leave shots “breathe” is always refreshing. It feels natural rather than overdone. And besides, the sheer meaning and emotion behind this redeems it. Great job!

The CMC never stopped believing. And so they achieved their dreams. <3

MLP Indonesian Intro by Animerge

mlpwhole

I got stuck in a time travelling washing machine. Probably not a good enough excuse, but alas I make my glorious return with a flash bang and whallop. Hello! Hi. Yes. Okay. Let me hang my coat up and take my shoes off.

I’ll be honest with you, my motivation for this site kinda dwindles when there’s a bunch of life stuff that gets in the way. But like a fish to water, you guys are my addiction that I always come crawling back to. So here we have a really underappreciated yet neat fanmade intro for the show! Reminiscent of many Japanese animoo openings (not that I’m an expert), the video has a great sense of presentation and style. There’s some nice masking, a great showcase of the episodes and some visuals that really shine. The ending kinda reminded me of Feedsy’s work yet added a breath of fresh air to it, a twist to the concept of 3D colored lights twirling around one another. Always nice to see this type of content – it really gives the editor a chance to impress.

All in all, this was a delight to watch. 5 years of pony, 5 years of remarkable talent. I want this site to really put a spotlight on those who deserve it, and it’s really hard to think that this guy only has 146 views and 2 subscribers to his name. I’m not sure this site will send him spiraling into horse fame, but I hope it does help at least a bit. Give him some love!

Worlds Collide by RainbowdashZx

the_burden_you_bear_by_huussii-d7i0gq7

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back. Today I present to you a brand new PMV from RainbowdashZx.

I like this PMV. The visuals are pretty stunning, and it feels good to review something a little more complex after clearing out the backlog of simple PMV’s. Not that simple PMV’s are bad by any means, this one actually has some simplistic elements to it, it’s just good to have a change once in a while. It is very similar to all his other PMV’s, but this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s generic and uninspired, just that the creator has found a style they can work with effectively.

The colour correction and editing as a whole are pretty fantastic. But however there are a couple things bugging me here and there. Call it nitpicking, but the lipsync isn’t quite on point. Maybe they were pushed for time, or the scenes they chose were quite awkward to work with. Other than noticing a few masking errors, and some obviously repeated backgrounds, this was a nice PMV all things considered.

Loyalty by The White Piano Key Productions

Today I have some awesome typography for you guys. This was actually entered in the PMV contest for BronyCon, but sadly didn’t place. Don’t let that deter you, though, ’cause it is great.

Loyalty is probably one of the most iconic songs in the brony fandom, and this editor definitely does it justice. The editing is fast-paced to match the song, and captures the spirit of the music very well. The graphics flow together very well, and of course there is a lot of Rainbow Dash.

Apparently White Piano Key made this over a year ago, but only uploaded it recently. Though there are a few things I would have changed (namely, the bits with Rainbow and Soarin, which I don’t feel fit the overall theme of friendship), it is still a lot of fun, and leaves you feeling good.

Heart by omgilikeapples

paper_pinkie_by_nickyv917-d5wngn5

Woo, paper ponies!

Looks like we’re kickstarting another week, huh? Unfortunately, University has just started for me so I’ll likely be wrapped up with that for a bit. Education: Just say no.

Anywho, I found a pleasant surprise in my subscription box on Saturday. The return of omgilikeapples! I remember him fondly from his 2012 PMV – “Dear Princess Celestia…” The unique stop-motion paper style made that PMV stand out from a lot of others back then. It’s really nice to see a return to form utilizing that effect again in 2015 with a Porter Robinson song.

The video seems to be focused on the Season 2 finale, a recreation of the events throughout the two parter. It’s very neat to see it all brought together in this musical homage with some custom scenes to boot. For criticism, I’m left with wanting a bit more than just a recap of the episode in a different style. It’d be really cool to have more custom elements throughout! Still, what we get is great. The stop-motion style of editing is one that I’d love to see more of in PMV’s. Just imagine that done with custom art too… Oh wait, TheeLinker jumped on that train with La Da Dee…

I personally think it’d be awesome to see omgilikeapples make more stuff, so please go give them your support!

Find You by Alanj2007Games

rainbow_dash_by_mercurycraft7-d92uysn

Hello again, people and horses from all walks of life. Jack here, telling you about a new PMV from up-and-coming editor, Alanj2007Games.

What’s instantly noticeable about this PMV is the 3D backgrounds and the heavy use of typography. The unique look of the backgrounds is a very nice touch, and the typography is, for the most part, very fluent. There are motion graphics thrown in there too, and that, combined with some rather stunning effects and visuals, makes this a PMV that is a treat for the eyes.

My only complaint that I have with this PMV is that it is incredibly short. Not even lasting a minute, the PMV feels like it’s building up to something spectacular, then suddenly, it’s over. This did disappoint me a little, as I feel the whole song could fit the editing style that Alanj was going for here, and to see only a glimpse of it makes me want more. Such a tease, that guy.

Still, for what it is, this PMV is visually impressive, and I can’t wait for more. Check out the PMV for Find You below!

100% + 20% by UnmuteChannel

cutie_mark____mane_6_by_ilifeloser-d7bglin

Hey everyone! I often find myself drawn to story over visuals. That’s not to say I don’t appreciate motion graphics, it’s more that I find a stronger emotional connection in a narrative. That being said, this mini PMV by Unmute Channel has some awesome visual work going on. There’s a lot of variety and everything is executed incredibly smoothly. It’s short, punchy and stylistic. I’m loving the use of coloured shapes and backgrounds. It’s simple in concept but works well. I’m also a huge sucker for SimGretina music.

It’s always a breath of fresh air to see a new editor on the scene, and it seems Unmute already has a strong grasp of how to edit effectively. One minor point of improvement I’d bring up is the white stroke and motion blur combination. AE tends to be awkward and puts a thicker line around the blur, causing a weird blending effect. Having experienced this issue myself, I’d suggest looking into pre-comps and fixing it that way. Anywho, I’d definitely say keep an eye out on Unmute. I think if he keeps making these, he’s gonna make it big in the fandom. Great job!
