All in This Together by AlanJ2007 Games

my-little-pony-mlp-art-удалённое-549828

Hiya!  My name is chocalicorn, and this is my first post on PMV Today.  I have been making PMV’s for a little while now, and I like to think that I know what I’m doing.  Enough me talk, let’s get on to the video!

This time, AlanJ2007 Games is back with a brand new video.  The video follows friendship, and shows how Twilight and her friends are All in This Together, as the song suggests.  The video also shows how Twilight can rekindle her relationships with old friends.  Now for the technical stuff, first, we get an nice, clean intro, and then it jumps right into some pretty neat visuals.  This video really hits the spot for me, because I’m a sucker for good typography.  Alan has a really good eye for picking which effects to use, and when to use them.  I was sort of expecting more as the intensity of the song gets higher, but that’s just me.

All in all, this is a really well made PMV, and I encourage you all to check it out. down 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.

Madness by Chocalicorn

crazy_chibi_twilight_sparkle_by_alexmakovsky-d4yhv2d

Hello everyone. Jack here again, and I’m gonna start this post off with an apology. You may have noticed that I didn’t post anything last week. Well, it was a result of my depression/social anxiety. I won’t go into too much detail, but I just felt so bad that I kinda wanted to exile myself from everything. I was in a very bad state, but I’m feeling better now. Anyway, enough about me. Let’s get to the PMV.

Made by Chocalicorn, using the song “Madness” by Muse, this PMV focuses mainly on Twilight, and how she has evolved during the show’s progression. Powered by the love she has for her friends, she is able to overcome any obstacle she faces. I feel this story was told well here, and the gradual progression of show clips and filters used led to some good pacing. As the song builds up to its climax, so does the pacing and the effects used, focusing on static typography mixed in of images/clips of Twilight and her friends, showing how much their love really means. I enjoyed the ending scenes to this PMV a lot, as I felt the build-up to that point was there from the beginning, and it definitely carried an emotional and powerful message.

Although some people may consider this PMV simple by nature, I still highly urge people to check this one out. It proves that the best stories don’t have to be told in the fanciest ways. I think Chocalicorn is a talented editor, and I look forward to what he has in store next.

Check out the PMV for Madness 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.

Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC) by Dr_Stables

Hey, everyone! It’s been a few weeks… Where has time gone… Dr_Stables released a new PMV about a month ago, to the song Twin Skeleton’s by Fall Out Boy. His choice of show clips and use of graphics / transitions really fit to the mood of the song. It mostly focused on both dark / grim scenes, and Manehattan. (Twin Skeletons / Hotel in NYC, who would have guessed?) Having been recently introduced to typography and graphics, I now have a better eye for this kind of stuff – and I can tell Dr_Stables is getting good. We actually got to participate in an amazing PMV collab recently! Wonder what PMV? I’ll write about it in a few hours, so keep your eyes open. But first, watch this Twin Skeletons PMV!  It’s right down there. Come on, you know you want to watch it. You are just one click away from paradise. What are you doing reading this post still? There is absolutely no information or entertainment to be gained from these words. It will take away time from your Twin Skeletons! :(

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

The Pass by Drummershy

Hey guys! Abby here, and I have been sick all week, so sorry if this post is a little lackluster. But don’t blame this PMV, which is pretty great.

It’s Rainbow Dash-centric, which I know this fandom loves. Rather than focusing on surface level things like her attitude or speed, though, this video goes more into the emotional, vulnerable aspects of her personality, which I absolutely love. The editing matches the smooth tones of the song, flowing together to let the emotion shine through, rather than focusing on flashy effects. The typography also matches this cool tone. It’s just a well put-together video.

The one thing I am not wild about is that there are a couple of instrumental sections of the song where there were just still images the entire time. I dunno, maybe some show clips or just more images would have helped. Or maybe it’s just a me problem. Either way, it doesn’t stop me from loving this video. Go check it out down below.

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!

5 Years of Friendship is Magic [A PMV Retrospective]

http://baraniruchu.deviantart.com

Today (October 10th 2015) marks the 5th anniversary of the premiere of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, the fourth generation of the My Little Pony franchise. Spearheaded by Lauren Faust, this latest incarnation drew in many fans, including some that were, at the time, unexpected. You have heard this story plenty of times now, but what came after defined the show’s legacy. Some of these unexpected fans, dubbed “bronies”, created their own fan works to show off to the world, including music, art, and video. The video portion of the fandom was headed by a certain type of creation: the PMV, or Pony Music Video.

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
