Papercut (Collab) by Dazzl and Kooper

Image1

Hey guys, chocalicorn here, and today I’m back with a lovely PMV collab by Dazzl and Kooper called Papercut.

This video focuses a lot on Twilight Sparkle and the rest of the Mane 6, and their struggles with friendship as a group.  The video is very story-driven, but it also has a lot of attractive effects, which is something I’d really like to see more of.  This video earned a well-deserved spot on the Top Ten Pony Videos of April 2016.

That being said, PMVers often feel the need to visualize every single word when making typography.  This might just be personal preference, but I don’t think you need to make typography of “ahh.”  Again, I’m nitpicking.  This video is really cool.

Five Night’s At Pinkies 4 – The Nightmare by JollyOldCinema

Hello everyone! We’re about a month or two away from Halloween. So how about a spooky video? A Source Filmmaker PMV! Oooo ^_^ This one is well made. The animations and visuals are great. The cinematography and character’s expressions matches the creepy ambient of the song (and the video itself). As you can tell from the title, this is based on the horror game series: “Five Nights at Freddy’s”. Even if you’re not a fan of the game series, you should really check this video out. Especially if you like spooky vids. The song is catchy too, it made me dance along with the video, even while the creepy pony animatronics moved around and sing. I gotta say, I love the animatronic models on this one. Anyways, go watch the video yourself down below!

Orbital Friendship Laser by LittleshyFiM

To continue with our contest highlights, we have the Action entry by LittleshyFiM which made 2nd place in our very own contest.

Basically, this is visually insane. Almost a year of work brings a short rapidfire burst of crazy visual effects. Seemingly related to the [Orbital Friendship Cannon] video back from 2011, the video toys with the idea of Celestia having a weapon of mass destruction, or in this case, friendship. This time around we seem to have a more consistent theme, with the objective being to wipe out all those pesky changelings with the assistance of Miss Sparkle.

While short, the video certainly packs an array of punches. I found it to be almost stunningly well done. It was a pretty hard decision for this not to steal first place, but Acleps brought some tough competition into the fray. I feel that this epitomizes the Action category in more ways than one. The combination of 3D animation, lens flares and lighting creates a compelling cinematic style which stands out over the rest of the entries. I have to compliment Littleshy for how hard he must’ve worked to get a lot of the effects to work. These are effects you’d typically see in movies, so to match them up with a fun pastel-coloured horse cartoon can’t be an easy feat. It’s incredibly well done and proves how great an artist LS can be with HitFilm.

Check out some awesome intensity below!

A novel, by Dr. Hooves.

ANYWAY welcome back everybody it’s time to get the PMV train rolling again after our amazing contest at Bronycon!  Check out the contest page up top to find the results for that, and over the next few weeks we’ll be posting all the incredible submissions that we received.  Be sure to give them all lots of love for their hard efforts!

And today we have an especially fantastic collaboration between the famed editors of Ye Olde YouTube Lore.  That’s right folks, everyone from Acleps to DeLoop has joined in on this fantastic celebration of our favorite little ponies.  Sure it might lack a little focus other than the Mane crew and some general pony counterparts, but the effects are VERY SHINY, the transitions are fast and furious, and the song is well matched.  Check it out below and let the gang over at the Collaboratory know what you think!

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.

Die by J woody

One of the best parts of this fandom is crossovers.  It leaves literally infinite possibilities for ponies!

If you’re into a show that stars four colorful characters abbreviated in the form of R.W.B.Y., then you’ll love what we have tonight.  While the title of the video is slightly blunt, it’s the title of a song from the show that’s being crossed with MLP, and no ponies were harmed in the making (we think).

The visuals rely heavily on some literal interpretation, so it’s great that the singer here has a clear voice for ease of understanding.  It’s also easy to see that the song style matches extremely well with our pony friends; each is both aesthetically cute and clean while thematically presenting some darker aspects.  In this respect, the editor gets bonus points for a nice matchup.  The effects were short and simple when used, and one of the only problems I had with this was that it might be too literal at times and that the HUB logos are always sticking out at the corners of the screen.

So whether you’re for primarily pure ponies or a criss cross of crossovers, you should check out the nice PMV by J woody below!
