Spirit of Success by GuncaPMV

Back again guys, and today we have a great PMV from Gunca. Now we don’t normally post unfinished PMVs, but this one seems to give an excellent atmosphere regardless.

Now the first thing you notice about this PMV is just how great the lighting effects are. And the shading on the backgrounds matches it perfectly. This is what gives this PMV that great atmosphere. The creator has used animation loops with stunning visuals to great effect. You don’t need to know much about editing to see that this video is absolutely beautiful.

The scenery seems to be composed in 3D space, which becomes evident when the camera moves around the scene. I love how the color overlay changes with the type of lighting used as well. For example in the first scene, at night the color is much cooler with a blue tint. But as the sun rises, it gradually changes to orange, to match the change from night sky to sun.

I think that’s the main selling point for this PMV, just how good the lighting is, and how well the style matches up to the song. Although I’m sure we would have preferred a full length PMV, what we have here is better than nothing.

One Last Wish by Gunca PMV

Pie is a little known weakness of the changelings, particularly Pinkie’s passionfruit pies.

Pies, ponies and PMVs are all prevalent in this next gem from GuncaPMV.  Except I might have lied about the pies.  The pie is a lie.

Moving on, this video was a one week challenge from our editor, who is back in the scene after a bit of a hiatus.  There’s a bunch of lovely camera movement and lighting going on in this piece, and this would be incredible if there was more time put into it.  As it stands right now in the world of editing, there were a lot of rough patches in the placement and general technical details.  Wings may seem disconnected, prolonged and slightly pretentious introductions and texts appear where they might should not, and where pictures could have easily told the story.

But that’s the important part: the story.  It’s a fantastic find after a small drought of pony music videos and you should check it out now for a simple hypothetical changeling war and some great editing ideas.

Please Don’t Break Me by HARUS STUDIO

We need an entire season of only Best Pony Fluttershy.  I’d settle for just a movie though. Or a side series.

As for today we’ll have to be content with a lovely PMV by a relatively new editor: HARUS STUDIO.  Apparently this is only their third pony music video and it’s powerful, professional, and pretty promising.

The amazing thing about this video is its sense of atmosphere.  The movement and effects are absolutely stunning when combined with the music, and there’s such a great use of background and foreground.  It also has a style very suitable for build-ups in the beginning and when the break down hits we find an incredibly appropriate change to straight videos of the best pony in the world.  All of these things really get you into the video when combined with toned lighting and smooth colors.

Enjoy a well edited, well thought out, and well presented PMV below!

P.S. If you’re wondering why Fluttershy is so sad, she saw that this editor only has a couple of subs. :(  Go subscribe!
