Inside Out (Parody Trailer) by Bridleway462GHA

the_voices_in_our_heads_by_vcm1824-d8y3549

We don’t usually post trailer parodies on PMV Today, so lets change things up a little this time around. Since both trailer parodies and PMV’s require similar editing techniques, this review shouldn’t feel too irregular.

The creator chose fitting clips, which is always essential. Although the lipsync wasn’t perfect at some points, a good attempt was made. I feel like they chose good characters to represent each emotion, definitely one of the strongest points for this video. The jokes were funny, and the good choice of footage reinforced this fact with visual humor.

The only thing that bugged me about this video is that I found it hard to distinguish between what was going on in the real world, and what was going on inside their heads. They could’ve made the transition between the two settings a little clearer.

All in all this was a fun, simple and well executed trailer parody.

Cutie Mark Quests Trailer by MysteryMelt

We didn’t get to posting this a while ago :( But it is a worthy piece of work that shows the fan animation and trailers department is still very much alive!

So take a gander at the epic and dramatic story creation that goes on in MysteryMelt’s video as we journey through a hypothetical season 5 plot point.  The best part about this trailer is that it makes its own original story out of just custom animation and show clips that come together so dramatically with the music.

Yes, the fan-made part is a bit subpar.  Animation movements are heavily tweened and the art style isn’t quite like the show.  There’s some fairly out of key edits made every now and then that, when contrasted with the clips from the show, seem to stand out particularly short.  However, if you look past the aesthetic edits and further into the mind of the editor, there are great things at work here and it’s definitely worth checking out.

A Million Ways to Die in Appaloosa by DagaYemar

tumblr_n34oqhoaRQ1rztoafo1_500

Tonight’s PMV is another adaptation of a movie theme from a very proficient editor by the name of “DagaYemar,” who has gained notoriety throughout our fandom for creating pony videos from the scores of countless classic films. Sort of a…”Movie Brony,” if you will.

Anyway, for this modern classic, the role of lead singer is performed by the Apples’ favorite cousin, Braeburn (and before you ask, that IS an apple in my pocket), aptly fitting the western motif of the theme song. The use of contrast is phenomenal in this video; Braeburn’s massive smile while singing about the many ways the Wild West can kill you is quite hilarious, thanks to (or perhaps in spite of) the limited screen time that Braeburn actually got. But overall, it’s a very charming video that uses a fan-favorite character to tell the story, so I have a hard time believing people would object.

Twilight’s Kingdom Cinematic Trailer by formuladash

mlp___the_burden_you_bear_by_huussii-d7i0gq7

Cinematic Trailers, one of my favorite forms of video. They take any form of media, cut it up, and make it seem very exciting. And in this case, the excitement wouldn’t be for nothing, as we all know the Season 4 finale was fantastic. formuladash did a fantastic job creating a great cinematic trailer for the Season 4 Finale. Everything is here. Hype, suspense, action, all tied together very precisely! The Season 4 finale brought out chills in me. This video doubled down on them. Check it out below!

Texhnolyze | While waiting for new season by Terriccota Pie

First up today is a ponification of the opening to the anime Texhnolyze. Don’t ask me how to pronounce that. This one has a really cool gritty look with the use of static and some film effects, and also does a great job overlaying scenes on top of one another for some interesting combinations.

Second up is a nice transition video from the previous seasons to the new one, showing many of the most heartwarming scenes from earlier episodes before teasing us with some previews from season 4. Only a few short days before we get to see the new episodes for ourselves!

MLP:FIM S4 Teaser Trailer by rspectcopyrightmyass

Season 4 is just a short time away, are you hyped? If by some chance you aren’t then I have just the video for you! It takes the real season 4 trailer and replaces the audio with a more suitably epic soundtrack (from the Catching Fire trailer). If the past 3 season openers are any indication, we’re in for something great come November 23rd!

Nightime Eternal by rainbowdashzx

epicponywarofthedistanttuesday6_by_davionx-d5xwf99

I like epic ponies. I really do. How I wish there was an actual spin-off series  in the vein of Fallout Equestria with ultra pony wars… but in the meantime, I’ll just take PMVs with epic music… like this one. The widescreen effect is very cool and gives this a very cinematic feel, which is reinforced, of course, by the instrumental track. Some of the aimless mouth movements felt a bit out of place for this style of PMV. I would love to have had the audio included on those, perhaps some choice bits of dialogue that would have enhanced the movie trailer feel.

But despite that minor gripe, this is a fun and awesome PMV with an especially great ending. Check it out below!

The Mark Of Destiny by Herostrain

Well hello there people up in the morning of Fillydelphia! (or wherever your bed is at the moment)

It’s for you to make your own mark in your own life in various places ( I did mine in the bathroom various times and I think I didn’t leave it behind) and it’s for you to realize that after 3 seasons of this show that no matter how early and how late you got into it, you caught up some tense moments within the show despite the usual slice-of-life stuff cause not everything is all rainbows, butterflies and Coca Cola and Magic Bean Sprouts and uh….. ok I guess I better proceed.

What we got here (at least to me, to the author, an awesome fanfiction to be written) is a nice trailer with appropriate voice cue ins summing up what could have been a nice movie/episode/OVA that condenses all these moments into what could have been a blockbuster Emmy award hit or something…. coming Summer 2014…. Either way, watching this will give you the impression that something’s gonna go down in Equestria again (Twilight after her wings are clipped *boos and hisses*)

But you can’t have your fun yet unless that list that pops up as a horrible disclaimer arrives to spoil your viewing pleasure:

The-Get-Your-Ponies-For-Nothing-And-The-Views-For-Free-list
1.Consistently captivating
2.Perfect scene choice plus voice clips (timing too)
3.No distracting effects (add-in Trailer text complemented well)
4.I wanna see a movie darn it

Check the microwave for your popcorn and get your tickets ready for the drama below:

Wreck-it Rainbow by Rspectopyrightmyass

 

Greetings,

 

Fellow Saturdayians,

Most already know that when Rainbow Dash is visiting you, she often makes her own door… Often of what used to be a roof or a wall…

She can really help it thought, speed and recklessness is in a way an accepted part of her nature. Which makes her play this role, As Wreak-it Rainbow, Feel natural and Spot on. Having Applejack as Fix-It Jack also speaks for her nature, as well as continue the “rivalery” between Rainbow dash And Applejack.

It is a Traditional style trailer PMV, and does good work with its source material. The scenes are very fitting for both Rainbow And Applejack and synced nicely with the music. (Includes: 1 sweetie-bot Reference).

It was the boost of cleverness so needed during these Lazy Saturdays, So go on, Only one click-coin to Play.

 

I approve this.

 


[Added Info]: The Pony MMO Video Game “Legends Of Equestria” has released a character creator for it’s playable ponies. Which can be found here.

MLP: GTA V by arniejolt

Babs Theft Auto: She Does Not Want To Go Bowling

Well, at this point, Grand Theft Auto V has been out for a little more than 2 days. And, as is the custom with new video games, we’re already sick to death of hearing about it. Thanks, Internet!

So, as part of my never-ending quest to provide our loyal readers with the utmost quality pony videos, and also annoy them at every opportunity, permit me to share with you a hilarious ponified trailer for this extremely oversaturated video game experience.

GTA is well-known for its hyper-violence and innovative sandbox playstyle. But perhaps its most underrated quality is its sense of humor. It’s a game that never takes itself too seriously, which given its content, is an interesting surprise. Combine that with the wonderful use of facial cues and action sequences, synced awesomely to the multitude of sound effects, and this video becomes a guaranteed way to get people like me, who don’t typically jump on every new game that comes out, to actually sit down and give this thing a serious try.

Well, I gotta bounce….Bounce? I need a new writing staff…Anyway, enjoy the video, and I’ll see you next time!
