What’s up, cool kids? I’m MrDeLoop! I’ve been making PMV’s and various pony videos in the fandom since 2011. You might know me for making the Bring it all Back PMV, Discord Kinetic Typography or even the craziness that is EQG: Day of the Flutter. Either way, I’m super excited to be joining the PMV Today author team from here on out. I’ve always felt passionate about PMV’s and it’ll be pretty damn cool to ramble about them over here. They are my friends, after all.
So, let’s kick this party off with perhaps one of my biggest editing inspirations in the fandom – Shiropoint. His Mane 6 series of videos made back in 2011 do an incredible job of capturing the personality, style and energy of each pony. Play Like Pinkie Pie is one of the gems that stuck out for me back when I first joined. The sense of pace, mix of show footage and custom visuals, the perfectly fitting song… It all flows together to create an awesome video that completely captures the essence of Pinkie. It’s a high octane burst of pure sugar filled craziness. And I love it.
With hundreds of thousands of views on these musical homages, Shiro’s earned his place as one of the more notable classic MLP editors. I’m sure he’s inspired many of us to go forth and just be creative because it’s FUN. Even if he’s recently taken an interest in other creative endeavors, I’ll always look up to his video-making talent and rewatch these videos to fuel my own motivation.
Oh, and in case you haven’t seen it – check out [this remake] made by NoPonyZone. It’s a really cool modern take on an old classic.
