Dudes, stuff gets dark in MLP if you just think about it. Hypnosis, vampirism, tyrannical enslavement, books without pictures…
What? You guys aren’t afraid of those?
Well this PMV focuses around telling the story of a great song and expanding on it’s message. Darkest Days is about overcoming and pulling through the darkest days of your life, and RDZX certainly makes it clear on how well the mane 6 pull through. Sure, we see the use of typical finale scenes with big scary bad guys, but I also noticed some great normal episodes that had serious thematic importance used with great effect here.
Now that we’re talking effects, lets see what our fellow editor did with these scenes. I know it ain’t just me, but I’ve kind of taken a liking to the widescreen video format that we’ve got going on here. It really makes the video seem more cinematic and epic. Additional effects include the famous white flash and the grunge overlay, both used accordingly. (Although I wouldn’t have minded a change in scenery after a bit with the overlay, it almost reaches a point of distraction.)
Moderately flashy stuff below!
