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!

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!

Fancy by TheLightLeavesThee

Today, I bring what is probably, no joke, no exaggeration, one of the best PMVs this fandom has produced. It really is that good.

It was created by TheLightLeavesThee, who, in my experience, has two staples – using clips from the show instead of motion graphics, and emotional videos that make me want to cry. Fancy actually leaves behind the latter, and it is great to see him take on a more upbeat, fun PMV. Everything about this works. The show clips are perfectly chosen. The use of masking is top notch, especially as a way of transitioning between clips. The filters and effects are beyond amazing. The typography is great. All of the pieces fit together, making a great final product.

If I had to make a complaint, it would be the Equestria Girls clips, but it’s just a personal preference of mine to keep humans and horses in separate PMVs. But really – just go watch this thing. Right now. And while you’re at it, subscribe. I’ve been watching Dex for a while now, and every video of his gets better and better. I can’t wait to see what he has in store next.

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.

I See Fire by tigresss

Here is a new Feel-Good PMV for you all, with some nice color effects and typography. It is set to the song by Ed Sheeran under the same name, and utilizes clips from various episodes throughout the show. Most of them involve enemies like Chrysalis, Discord and Nightmare Moon; but what I found intereating was their decision to include several shots from the episode Dragonshy.

I find this PMV to be very calming. Tigresss’ use of slow, cinematic shots and transitions were perfect for the song. After a day of stress, I am deeply enjoying watching this video on repeat. Especially if you like calming music and videos, I would recommend watching this. This guy is very good.

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!

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.

Super Sonic Racing by Soniccrew128

Gotta go fast! Hey guys, Pixel3000nerd here! Today bringing you with another of the entries made for the PMV Contest 2015. This one, made by Soniccrew128 is a great one! I myself love fast paced music, and I love it when the PMV itself matches it’s rhythm too. This one does it’s job well. Ranging from some typography, to clips from various sources, show and from Ponies IRL. The transitions and animation are perfectly timed with the rhythm of the song, which by itself the lyrics is super catchy too. Actually, it’s from Sonic Generations! I’ve been dancing and bobbing my head to his :3 In short words, a great fast paced PMV. If you haven’t watched it yet, go watch it here down below. Congrats on winning 3rd place in Action category!
