Down the Road hosted by The Collaboratory

img-1439390-1-Applejack_cocked_eyebrow_S1E4

Hello everyone! You’ve probably seen this already, but heck, I’m going to write a post on this video anyway!

Hosted by The Collaboratory, this is their newest PMV collab to Down the Road by C2C.  It focuses primarily on Applejack and the rest of her family.  The colours are warm and the parts flow together nicely.  Even the little things throughout this video are continuous, like the camera flash leading from Jack DC 93’s part into TheAcleps’, the cutie mark that shows up in the same spot in my part that is in the same spot as AJ getting her cutie mark in TheLightLeavesThee’s part, TheeLinker using pieces of other parts for when the song glitches out, and daspacepony used a similar scene of the barn at the end of the video that Littleshy did at the beginning.  Everything in this is all really well done!  Lots of collabs released nowadays are either hit or miss, but this one does not disappoint!

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!

space out~

My Everything [PMV Collab] by GuncaPMV

celestia_and_luna_by_cenit_v-d6kkbcu

Oh Hi there! I’m Soniccrew128. And Today I’m here to show all of you an beautiful collab, My Everything hosted by GuncaPMV.

This collab centers around Celestia and Luna, and it shows about their harsh lives and how much they care about one another. This PMV is just filled with feelings, and emotions that I can even maybe cry. With the help of these amazing collaborators, this was an amazing piece of work, full of great visuals, animation, and typography. And surprisingly no use of show footage, which is awesome! So I hope all of you will check out this collab out and give a round of applause to these guys for working on this :D

I also want to say it’s such an honor being a author here on PMVToday, I always hoped that this site will come back. So until next time, you guys are awesome! *bro-hoof*

Our Story by SnowT

Woah what’s this? Yup, PMVToday is finally back! Man, it’s been a long time since I’ve made a post on this site. It feels good to be bringing you guys some awesome PMVs (even though now we have months of backlog. But if you find something awesome, please send it in!)

Speaking of awesome PMVs, I have a great one for you guys today. This one is a collab organized by SnowT, and featuring a collection of editors. My favorite parts are by SnowT and Particolt1030, you guys were great. But really, everybody in this video was great. All the editing styles blended together really well, and only a few parts felt out-of-place (I kinda get what you were going for with pointy ponies, but it didn’t work for me).  Still, the good stuff is good enough that I can overlook the parts I’m not the biggest fan of, and this video leaves me with a smile every time I watch it.

I’m proud to say PMVToday is back, and you all should go check out Our Story below!

Frame of Mind [Collab] by Alanj2007Games

Aahhh, this made me cry! For about a month, Alanj2007Games coordinated another collaboration PMV, this time to the song “Frame of Mind” by Tristam and Braken. It was originally supposed to be a collab just between him and Nebula Animations, but it was put open as a group collaboration. This allowed me to have the opportunity to work on it, along with some other great PMV creators.

I didn’t see the final product until it was released, which – I admit – allowed for an incredible surprise. The intro immediately left me in awe, giving me chills within the first few seconds. The collab itself contained so many different editing styles and content choices, as well. Two people even did some custom animation for the PMV! Some focused on specific characters like Fluttershy or Rainbow Dash; some used regular (but exciting) motion graphics / typography; and one part, by Nebula, blew me away with the feels in that it used a creative visualization of the Return of Harmony, when Twilight read her old letters to Princess Celestia. It was a blast to work on this PMV, I’m proud of what I came up with, and you definitely will love it too.

Vegas Lights by The Collaboratory

neon_friendship_by_derplight-d66tuv9

Friendship conquers all.

Hello. Jack here again, showcasing a PMV that is, for all intents and purposes, an incredibly special one. This PMV was made for TheLightLeavesThee, a fellow PMV editor (and is also the co-ordinator/founder of The Collaboratory, as well as one of the authors on this site) who has recently been fighting through depression.

Orchestrated by racecarghost, various editors from within The Collaboratory came together to make a PMV with a more personal touch. Each editor used their own editing styles to weave together something with a huge emotional impact, from the inclusion of motion graphics (courtesy of editors such as TheAcleps and daspacepony) to the use of more traditional editing styles (as seen from JakeWhyman and ObsessiveBookworm). There’s even a few off-the-wall and creative moments that inject a bit of humour into the video, courtesy of DrDinosaur.

It’s clear that everyone brought their A-game into this PMV. Everyone who participated in this collab had only one goal in mind: to make a video that can bring a smile to their friend in need, and if this reaction video is anything to go by, then I think everyone succeeded in achieving that goal.

We love you, Dex. <3

Beautiful Now by SnowT (Collab)

What does this image have to do with today’s PMV? It’s simple: the picture is awesome, and the PMV is awesome. That’s the theme of today’s post – awesome things. Because this is an awesome PMV, featuring some awesome editors.

Seriously, every possible style of PMV is present here, and the all flow together into an excellent video. The song choice, while not one I would have thought to make a PMV of, works really well. There is a great blend of typography, motion graphics, clip selection, and even some custom animations. It’s just really good, and you should go check it out below.

Because of You by rainbowdashzx and Friends

You know, happiness and sunshine and flowers doesn’t have to be the one-dimensional state of mind that we think it is.  Unless you’re Derpy over there on the right, then maybe…

ANOTHER COLLABORATION PMV shows this concept in a wonderfully exemplary way.  The song itself is rather happy with a few mixes of emotion coming in every now and then, but the editing keeps up with this perfectly and uses the happiness shown by each of our characters to flavor the entire piece.

Speaking of editing, we do get a lot of videos with fancy effects and sparkles, but it’s always worth noticing when there are edits done with quality.  I’m not saying that big effects bring down the amount of quality, but it isn’t dependent on them.  In this video, for example, we see a fabulously upbeat, speedy and lyric-matching edit in Tygr’s short part at the beginning.  Things aren’t necessarily custom, but the “dominoes” line is constructed in such a manner that I just feel super excited watching it.

Pump yourself up when you go down below, and make sure to sub to all the awesome editors who contributed!

Runaway by Alanj2007 and Friends

my-little-pony-characters-hd-wallpapers-girl-photo-my-little-pony-wallpaper

It’s just like our good mayor said, this stuff really does bring people from all walks of life together.

The same applies to collaborations!

Good evening every pony and welcome to another fabulous featuring of a fantastically frivolous work of art.  The song is Runaway, but don’t do that quite yet until you’ve checked out this new collab!  This particular piece features monumental effort from big names like Alanj2007, all the way to our very own Pixel3000Nerd.

Speaking of whom, it seems like the most noticeable part about this PMV was the timing of everyone’s parts.  I’d say P3N’s style fits perfectly with the huge drop in the song when he comes in, and RDZX makes an incredible crescendo with his slightly shaken camera (and reference to G+).  DaSpacePony gives us a proper and fitting relaxation using their own ‘spaced-out’ style and JackDC93, a contest judge this year, had the perfect atmosphere for the soloed vocals at his part.

Find even more gems of editing below! And don’t forget to subscribe to each of the amazing visual engineers.

Doors by various SFM animators

908179__safe_solo_twilight+sparkle_princess+twilight_artist-colon-silbersternenlicht

Hope everyone is enjoying their Friday night. We got something different from the norm to post tonight. While we don’t normally post SFM videos, this one is really neat. Consisting of 36 (I think) SFM animators, it follows Twilight Sparkle as she side scrolls through a series of door, and all the ridiculous and insane situations that happen between each one.  While I haven’t seen the original it’s based on, the concept is simple enough that it’s not necessary to enjoy this remake.

It’s really quite cool to see so many different interpretations of a pony going through a series of doors. The animation through the various segments is really quite adorable and exciting. It’s a cool video and with so many editors I can only imagine how it was coordinated so well.
