Our Story by SnowT

Woah what’s this? Yup, PMVToday is finally back! Man, it’s been a long time since I’ve made a post on this site. It feels good to be bringing you guys some awesome PMVs (even though now we have months of backlog. But if you find something awesome, please send it in!)

Speaking of awesome PMVs, I have a great one for you guys today. This one is a collab organized by SnowT, and featuring a collection of editors. My favorite parts are by SnowT and Particolt1030, you guys were great. But really, everybody in this video was great. All the editing styles blended together really well, and only a few parts felt out-of-place (I kinda get what you were going for with pointy ponies, but it didn’t work for me).  Still, the good stuff is good enough that I can overlook the parts I’m not the biggest fan of, and this video leaves me with a smile every time I watch it.

I’m proud to say PMVToday is back, and you all should go check out Our Story below!

Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC) by Dr_Stables

Hey, everyone! It’s been a few weeks… Where has time gone… Dr_Stables released a new PMV about a month ago, to the song Twin Skeleton’s by Fall Out Boy. His choice of show clips and use of graphics / transitions really fit to the mood of the song. It mostly focused on both dark / grim scenes, and Manehattan. (Twin Skeletons / Hotel in NYC, who would have guessed?) Having been recently introduced to typography and graphics, I now have a better eye for this kind of stuff – and I can tell Dr_Stables is getting good. We actually got to participate in an amazing PMV collab recently! Wonder what PMV? I’ll write about it in a few hours, so keep your eyes open. But first, watch this Twin Skeletons PMV!  It’s right down there. Come on, you know you want to watch it. You are just one click away from paradise. What are you doing reading this post still? There is absolutely no information or entertainment to be gained from these words. It will take away time from your Twin Skeletons! :(

Remembrance by Argodaemon

Hello guys and gals. You ready to go on a feels trip? If you haven’t watched this, you better be ready for some feels. This new video by Argodaemon is really amazing. According to him, the idea and work of this started around 2 years ago. It’s impressive. The ambient in which is portrayed is very cinematic and combining with the small concept story about Twilight’s immortality and wanting to have her friends back really captures the emotions here. No joke, tears were shed when I watched this. I swear there’s some ninjas cutting onions in my room. Twilight’s immortality is something that the fans has been debating now that she’s an alicorn, but has been confirmed by official staff that Twilight will not outlive her friends. Though this concept is still really interesting to get into and make story with it, and sad indeed. Go watch it down below.

Smile by Amanie4cures

smile__mlp__by_aquagalaxy-d74mpie

Hey guys, got a lovely little PMV today from Amanie4cures.

We have another simply edited video, and the slow pace really does fit the song. I think the nice choice of clips coupled with the song itself is really uplifting. The creator did attempt some lipsync, and with more practice this could work really well. The creator also added a little more spice to the video with lens flares and simple but clever transitions between the clips. The editing itself is really well timed. I’m surprised this person doesn’t have more subs, because they certainly deserve them.

Overall I found this PMV very enjoyable, and hope you do too.

Lovers On The Sun by Athil MV

Hello guys and gals! Bringing you with a neat simple PMV by Athil MV and with a David Guetta song! This is one of those simple PMVs where it doesn’t use filters like barely or at all, and this one is that but it’s really good. The scenes used fit well with the song’s atmosphere and mood. And I like when the style changed quite a bit with the small scenes passing by and a lens flary background as well as the hearts transition around the second beat drop of the song. It’s a really nice touch to a great simple but satisfying PMV. Go watch it down below!

100% + 20% by UnmuteChannel

cutie_mark____mane_6_by_ilifeloser-d7bglin

Hey everyone! I often find myself drawn to story over visuals. That’s not to say I don’t appreciate motion graphics, it’s more that I find a stronger emotional connection in a narrative. That being said, this mini PMV by Unmute Channel has some awesome visual work going on. There’s a lot of variety and everything is executed incredibly smoothly. It’s short, punchy and stylistic. I’m loving the use of coloured shapes and backgrounds. It’s simple in concept but works well. I’m also a huge sucker for SimGretina music.

It’s always a breath of fresh air to see a new editor on the scene, and it seems Unmute already has a strong grasp of how to edit effectively. One minor point of improvement I’d bring up is the white stroke and motion blur combination. AE tends to be awkward and puts a thicker line around the blur, causing a weird blending effect. Having experienced this issue myself, I’d suggest looking into pre-comps and fixing it that way. Anywho, I’d definitely say keep an eye out on Unmute. I think if he keeps making these, he’s gonna make it big in the fandom. Great job!

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!

Untouchable by Alanj2007Games [Collab]

Here’s an incredible collab that came out yesterday, set to the song “Untouchable” by Tritonal and Cash Cash. Each part was beautiful, had their own styles, and transitioned into the next fluidly. This collaboration actually contains one of our own staff, JackDC93!

It was interesting to see how each person interpreted the lyrics. Most of them were unique, and some that were notable were the use of the mane 6 rainbow powers and Equestria girls; and my personal favorite, DASpacePony’s use of ponies from the S5 premiere. I only wish that they also included the Power Ponies. :(

You may recognize Alanj2007Games, and a few of his collab partners, from other groups such as The Collaboratory. And I hope this video is a success, because I’d love to see more from them. If you agree, why don’tcha go ahead and check it out, and maybe even share with your friends! I could go on rambling about this PMV, but hopefully I’ve gotten you excited enough to watch it now!

(EXPLICIT) A Very Special Message For a Very Special Someone by chocalicorn

pouting rarity

Hello, I’m NameGoes, and I am one of the writers here on PMV Today. You probably don’t know who I am, and that’s because I don’t make content for the fandom. Anyways, let’s get to this fun PMV by chocalicorn.

So, this video is obviously pointed at a certain ‘special’ someone, and I’m sure that he/she ‘enjoyed’ it. It features all of the mane six at some time or another (though not so much with Rarity and AJ) and boasts a very catchy song. I would definitely say it has a lighthearted feel through it, but it is rather difficult to categorize aside from saying its fun.

Something I really like about this PMV is the use of character expressions, body language, faces, etc, which definitely shows that chocalicorn knows the show and its scenes well. I also liked the presentation in general, the jolly and rather casual mood throughout really speaks for chocalicorn’s ability to carry a tone, and while the typography was somewhat simple, it was still well done for what it is, and is by no means lacking.

Overall, I really liked this PMV, and I hope you do too, go check it out below!

Super Sonic Racing by Soniccrew128

Gotta go fast! Hey guys, Pixel3000nerd here! Today bringing you with another of the entries made for the PMV Contest 2015. This one, made by Soniccrew128 is a great one! I myself love fast paced music, and I love it when the PMV itself matches it’s rhythm too. This one does it’s job well. Ranging from some typography, to clips from various sources, show and from Ponies IRL. The transitions and animation are perfectly timed with the rhythm of the song, which by itself the lyrics is super catchy too. Actually, it’s from Sonic Generations! I’ve been dancing and bobbing my head to his :3 In short words, a great fast paced PMV. If you haven’t watched it yet, go watch it here down below. Congrats on winning 3rd place in Action category!
