Destiny | daspacepony (PMV Contest Best In Show)
It’s been a while.
Hi everyone, TheLightLeavesThee here, and I have been bestowed the honor of writing about the Best In Show winner of the recent BronyCon PMV contest.
(and by bestowed, I meant I saw the list of videos and exclaimed “MINEMINEMINE I WILL WRITE ABOUT THI-” *cough*)
So, this video here is called Destiny, and it’s by the amazingly talented and super underappreciated “Daspacepony.”
And let me tell you. This video didn’t really help my Post Con Depression after BronyCon was over.
Destiny is the kind of video you don’t realize how truly amazing it is until multiple viewings, but holy hell, this video gets to me. Every time I watch it I feel something. I don’t get that too often from the PMV Community anymore. I’m glad to see some people still pride themselves in making me feel like crying into my popcorn (you jerks.)
So from a technical standpoint, it’s solid, good cuts and editing throughout with little details here and there to keep things fresh. Excellent pacing throughout as well, using just the right moments from the show at just the right time, with nothing ever quite feeling like “filler.” I like the bits of motion graphics at the end, incredibly smooth and well done, not to mention a way to pad out the ending with emotional impact that again, does not feel like filler.
I want more videos like this from our community, guys, videos with meaning, passion and heart put into them. I haven’t felt so strongly in love with a PMV like this since “The Stars Will Aid In Her Escape.”
It’s THAT good guys. Watch it if you haven’t already.
