Photo Party by AgrolChannel

What’s one word to describe this next PMV?  Blissful.

That’s right ladies and colts, we have a very happy and heartwarming animation coming up from the one and only Agrol who should definitely be posting more often.  The best part about it is that there is a wonderful and relaxing story that compliments the animation style beautifully.

And what is that style you ask?  The first few seconds were in the typical fan-animation tweening process that tend to plague amateur animations.  However, we then move on to a series of pictures (not dissimilar to Fimflamfilosophy) strung together as a representation of Pinkie’s photo collection.  It’s nostalgic, funny, and it also doesn’t take itself too seriously, which seems to be a problem in more and more videos.

The story is pretty simple, but also fun.  Pinkie runs around town to invite the Mane 6 crew to her photo party and gives the invitations in creative ways.  Casually happy acoustic tunes flow right along with the actions and everything has the best possible prosody.

Find it below for a fun springtime treat!

Strangers by MrKupKake

button_mash_and_sweetie_belle_by_silverfox057-d75ifip

Hey guys, I’m Sambohh. I haven’t been around too long so I doubt many of you have heard of me. And come to think of it, the only PMV content I’ve ever made is a 20 second section for the Collaboratory’s latest PMV. But that doesn’t matter, what matters is the fact that I have around 3 years of video editing knowledge, so that’s a plus. Either way, I’m glad to be a part of the PMVToday team, and hope I can throw out many PMV posts for you guys to enjoy in the future. Let’s get started shall we?

Well first off we have this beautiful PMV Animation from Mr KupKake, for the song strangers by Scratch21 (feat.EileMonty). Honestly, this video was destined to be a hit from the get go. Because it features Button Mash, a popular character that we have seen little of since the JanAnimations takedown. Not only that, but the song featured is sung by none other than ShadyVox, the voice actor for Button Mash. It was just begging to be made, and KupKake stepped up to the challenge.

This video is much more than just a simple animation with show characters lip synched up to a good song. The creator made sure to use particular lighting, transitions and camera placements, to capture the feel of the song as much as possible. It speaks to the viewer on an emotional level, and really pulls at your heartstrings. Clever effects were used, such as a white vignette to clarify that the characters are reminiscing on their past. The animation links with the lyrics very well, without going off them completely. And the ending is just stunning. The way they hang their heads and cry really hits you hard.

It’s just such a well though out, well made and memorable video that I think will go very far, and become a classic that will be remembered years in the future.

Lyra’s Gift by AgrolChannel

Hello everyone, and today I’m bringing you not with a PMV, but an animation. A really touchy one too. Focusing on Lyra (my second favorite background pony) as the main focus in this animation, along with a small filly. Well… it’s better to watch the video then me explaining about the story. But anyways, it starts all normal and then funny, and then at the end I was like “Awwwww!!” Great animation by Agrol, really liked it!

Ponyville Falls Episode 1 by Daga Yemar

Hello everyone, Dae314 here to brighten up your Saturday evening once again using the awesome power of LED ligh– I mean recut pony videos! Tonight is a bit of a departure from the normal musical numbers. I’m not going to lie; I have neither seen nor heard of the show that is used for the audio track in this video before today. I don’t think I will be watching the show either. I’d be better off just listening to the audio of it and substituting fitting pony visuals like Daga Yemar has done for us. It makes the dialog that much more entertaining to listen to and wonder just what must have been going on in the actual show to generate those comments and sounds. Anyway, not much more I can say that you can’t see! Just be prepared, this is a recut of the entire first episode so it’s almost 30 minutes long (includes commercials)!

Twily’s New School by ABitSillyPony

Happy Thursday night guys!

Anyone else remember this show? If not, all you need to know is that it was incredible.

ABitSillyPony has done an absolutely incredible job of “ponifying” this TV intro. What I tend to so when people take on projects like this, is the effects and scenes are from mop and more fit what they are saying in the lyrics, instead of what was in the actual intro video. I really loved this PMV because all the scenes were actually based off those from the show. Instead of just finding scenes that kinda fit. ABitSillyPony made the scenes using some very good custom animation. I really have nothing else to say, I really liked it.

If you are looking for more, or just something to do. Drop by the authors channel and show some love. Channel

Everything Wrong With Dusk’s Dawn in 4 Minutes or Less by LittleshyFiM

LittleshyFiM brings us a new Cinema Sins parody, based in the fan-made animation: Dusk’s Dawn, this animation doesn’t have a “very” good reception in the fandom, all this maybe is for the mistakes of animation/sounds/editings/etc….

But whatever, in a more personal view for the original video and the creators, I recommend this phrase: “The quality is always better than quantity”. These different errors can work as an intuition and experience for make better animations and videos.

So… keep it up your work guys! persistence is the key to success.

Prepare your popcorn, because you will have a funny parody that’s below.

_101__rainbow_dash_and_twilight__teach_me_to_fly_by_doktorrainbowfridge-d64v90y

Hello everyone~ Tonight for you we have a special SFM animation by the user named Nutrafin. This honestly seems like something that’d actually be done in the show, with the slapstick and timing of the comedy being spot on. It’s short, but it’s definitely worth your time, and it’ll totally make your day (or night.) Head on down below to watch it!
