Five Night’s At Pinkies 4 – The Nightmare by JollyOldCinema

Hello everyone! We’re about a month or two away from Halloween. So how about a spooky video? A Source Filmmaker PMV! Oooo ^_^ This one is well made. The animations and visuals are great. The cinematography and character’s expressions matches the creepy ambient of the song (and the video itself). As you can tell from the title, this is based on the horror game series: “Five Nights at Freddy’s”. Even if you’re not a fan of the game series, you should really check this video out. Especially if you like spooky vids. The song is catchy too, it made me dance along with the video, even while the creepy pony animatronics moved around and sing. I gotta say, I love the animatronic models on this one. Anyways, go watch the video yourself down below!

And I Think To Myself by TheLightLeavesThee

Equestria is certainly a ‘wonderful world’ until you consider the amount of explosions, mythological carnivores, and traveling salesmen it contains.  Yikes.

Luckily, we’re here on earth, with the internet, so that we can view this lovely video by an editor who was long thought to be eaten by a traveling salesman from Equestria.  TheLightLeavesThee returns in an epic and super-dramatic PMV that really puts a new perspective on our fantastic fiction of frivolous horses.

One of my favorite parts of this video is indeed how TLLT puts a spin on the classic land of ponies.  But another is how he used the epic finale scenes from the show and how he balanced those with effects and showed constraint.  It’s easy for everyone to shove in their favorite scenes from FiM along with their favorite song.  However, this video starts with smaller scenes and crescendos into the big ones, which really helps build an epic sense of progression.  This is an important thing to learn if you plan on doing pony music videos of your own one day, and this particular piece is something worth looking at carefully.

Turn your sunshiny Equestria into a world of action and creepy piano notes below!

King of the Discothèque by Pinkemena Tuxedo Pie

 

Always remember, kids, when searching “Crazy Pinkemena” on Google images, keep the safe search ON.          0_0

That aside, I have been waiting forever to watch a new PMV from the good old PTP, and this really doesn’t disappoint.  There are some wicked effect layerings that might not seem too bad at first glance, but you gotta realize that these things take massive time.  Clipping and masking and even just the coloring must have taken the majority of the six months that it took to do this piece, but I’d say it was well worth it in the end.

The ingenuity and use of the effects is so great that I can’t do them justice by reviewing them.  So instead, I must say that the intensity of the visuals was properly matched for the most part.  There were some times where it seemed like all the crazy fuel was burned up in the beginning, but I really appreciated the careful application of the white-walled room and the 3-D breakthrough.  Some other things to note about this video are how PTP keeps a consistent theme and style throughout the time-consuming process, and the creation of an isolated atmosphere.

Slight flashiness warning, so Czech it out below if you dare!
