The City by The Collaboratory


Look, don’t tell the others but I’m totally breaking the rules to post this. This isn’t even the proper posting time or date for me. “Schedule all posts for 7pm” he says. Well, guess what? I’m BRITISH! It’s 7pm over here for me! I have found the ultimate loophole! AHAHA!

Ahem, no, but really. I just wanted to give some promotion to this awesome collaborative effort. Considering there’s like 4 of the staff who worked on this, I’m sure exceptions can be made.

We recently released our second collaborative PMV for The Collaboratory. I’ll let you be the judge of my own contribution, but I think you’ll agree with me that everyone involved did a really great job. We strived to get a better sense of structure and theme this time around, generally focusing on Rarity and Manehattan. I think it’s nice how there’s such a variety of creators involved in the channel. Simplistic show footage, motion graphics, full blown animation – it’s a nice mix and we tried to make the parts flow together well. We certainly still have much to improve, but we’re having a lot of fun working on these videos. Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed working on it!

Hello folks, we have a treat for you tonight. I hope you like bright light induced seizures because this will certainly give you them.

This is what happens when you give 10 PMV editors too much time and let them go wild. I don’t think I have much else to say much on this… I’ll let it explain itself.


Caution: It might Talk Dirty to you

Centuries by rainbowdashzx And Friends

These horses look like they are %120 ready to listen to some Fall Out Boy save Equestria and be forever recognized for it in a stained glass window somewhere!

That’s pretty much their job description, right?  Anyway, the collab scene in the world of PMVs had slowed down for a good bit before we hit this wonderful piece of editing.  And now that rainbowdashzx and the crew have brought it back together I’m just anxious to see some more great editing like this!

My favorite part is probably the effects and continuity, which are hard to achieve when not everybody uses the same program nor has the same capabilities.  Even in this video, we’ll find that some of the editors used that fancy shmancy AE CC 2014, and others were caught with free (although flexible) video stringers.  With this in mind, it seems like everybody worked extra hard to continue a flow that should be almost impossible to keep.  The only part that didn’t seem necessary was the almost excessive use of typography in place of ponies, but what can you do when #Season5 doesn’t even have a release date yet?  We’re running out of scenes, yo!

Regardless, check out this exceptional video that you could watch on repeat for centuries! Or until Season 5, whichever comes first.
