You’re On by MrLogic

Ah season 2, we’ve come so far from power crazed, deceptive, super powered villains to…

Let’s get to the PMV!  Tonight we have a nicely edited piece that retells the classic S2 finale using a song that share’s a similar theme with the visual story: deciding who’s on whose side.  It’s a very common theme that you’ll find all over the place, but I’d say it’s done in a fresh and dazzling new way right here.

One thing the video does really well to match the song is a simple coloring and glowing edit that lasts the entire time.  It’s really used to identify the style of the music rather than give any emphasis to changes in the music, and it works fantastically well for that.

Angel of Small Death & The Codeine Scene (PMV) by ObbsessiveBookworm

season_5_premiere_starlight_glimmer_by_akatsukikun-d8hyruq

Hey folks, happy Friday! Tonight we have a new PMV from ObbsessiveBookworm. Hope you like evil because this PMV is focused on villains.

Let me say I absolutely love this video. The catchiness of the song combined with the simplistic editing style really makes this an enjoyable vid for me. The effects are restricted to simple color correction, fades and an overlay. Simple and powerful. Now usually I find overlays to be distracting, but the sparing and tasteful use in key areas really adds visual interest to make up for some of the slower parts of the song. I also was pleased by the use of the high-aspect ratio letter boxing in specific areas of the song. Overall the editing gives a very dramatic and professional feel to the whole video.

Also Twilight kicking butt at the end make me very happy. Enjoy the video below!

Unicorn Zombie Apocalypse by MylittleBronieDE

my_little_zombie_apocalypse_team_by_agentbrony-d4pc4it

For a song with only three words, this is quite an engaging PMV. Pulling off long instrumental sections is always tough, but this video uses effects well to really showcase the Season 2 finale and give it an even more actiony feel than it already had (and that’s saying something). The greenish filter definitely adds to the zombie theme, and the punchy kicks of the beat really come through strong with the added effects. This is a fast-paced, energetic anthem that shows off some of the best moments from the Season 2 finale, with an undead spin.

My Little Changeling by FinalCutBrony

Hey everybody! rainbowdashzx here again after a long hiatus! Getting myself organized took awhile, but I’m finally back! And I couldn’t be happier! Tonight I bring you a fantastic PMV by FinalCutBrony. According to the description on the video, this was his first PMV. If this is true.. we’ve definitely got another one to keep an eye on! Great transitions, clip selection, and general feel can be found here. Tied neatly together with an excellent track by OmniPony. It definitely does justice to what in my opinion is the best episode(s) of Friendship is Magic to date. Check it out below!

Alchemist by pixel3000nerd

I’m not too good with music genres so I couldn’t tell you what type of song this is, but I like it! It really kicks up the action of the Canterlot Wedding story about two or three notches, and it was already pretty action packed. This video adds some nice twitch and fading effects to amp it up even further, but the real standout is the custom animations. I really liked the dissolve effect used on the vectors and the addition of the music visualizer.

Fluffle Puff Tales: “Special Someponies” by FluffyMixer

eq_fluffle_puff_happy_by_jailboticus-d6ovuy4

You know, it just wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day (or Hearts and Hooves Day, if you prefer) if we didn’t have a look into the special relationship between our favorite Changeling Queen, and the fluffiest, cuddliest, most verbally-challenged OC in our fandom. Of course, I speak of Fluffle Puff and Chrysalis, stars of a very well-known Tumblr blog, that also occasionally produced great videos just like this one.

And you know what? This is one of the most grounded and just…real videos they’ve ever done. This is the kind of day I like to have with the person who is dearest to me. You don’t have to do anything overly romantic with the time you have (though the thing with the tacos was pretty schmaltzy), just as long as you spend that time together. I thought this video was very nice, and I hope you enjoy it, and that you all enjoy the rest of your special day!

Queen of the Damned by King Hatchet

queen_chrysalis_by_fantazyme-d5ajrdf

For all the great bad guys this show has introduced, I think that Queen Chrysalis may still be my favorite. She had a fantastic design, and she really knew how to make an entrance. That green fire pillar. Amazing. And speaking of green, this video has a ton of it. It’s also very fast-paced, utilizing a very fitting hard rock band known for their speed and power. This PMV also makes great use of all the action/battle scenes that were part of that great season finale. Make sure you take a little time out of your busy day to rock your face off to this awesome PMV, and then head over to Hatchet’s channel for even more meaty, heavy aggressive PMVs.

I Knew You Were Trouble Dubstep by SnowyBrony

 

Usually, I don’t like this genre of music.

When I clicked on this video from my subscriptions, I expected it to be absolutely horrendous.  But this is not just your regular 240p first attempt PMV.  It surprised me in many ways, and even though I had to tone down the volume, there was an elegance and modern style in the visuals that simply can’t be ignored.

 

The small tidbits of custom effects and plentiful green screen usage was appreciated.  But the surprising part is what the vid focused on.  The tone and swing of the visuals DON’T follow the melody like most others, but instead are more associated with the rhythm. It was different and I for one enjoyed that aspect.

 

The only thing I would have SnowyBrony do is focus more on story and extend the PMV for a bit more.  Other than that, not too shabby.  100+ hours of work was put into this, so I hope you’ll enjoy it.
