Fourth of July || Twixie by BaltoDork

No but seriously, I keep hearing fireworks and stuff going off around my neighborhood at 11PM and it’s been over a week since that holiday.  Y’all have no chill.

Well, at least we get fabulous PMVs like this one as a result!  That’s right, it’s another Fall Out Boy song, but it’s got excellent visuals from an editor who we don’t see much of.  There isn’t too much ingenuity, but everything works together like a true piece of art and it keeps a focus through the lyrics.

To start with the effects, they were really the glue that held the piece together.  Things got a little shaky with the introduction of still images (often the sign of a subpar edit) but the colored light leaks and transitions kept everything running smoothly.  The shipping story here isn’t too differential from the lyrics, but it does a nice job with the limited clip selection and really brings everything back together with a greater focus.

Angel of Small Death & The Codeine Scene (PMV) by ObbsessiveBookworm

season_5_premiere_starlight_glimmer_by_akatsukikun-d8hyruq

Hey folks, happy Friday! Tonight we have a new PMV from ObbsessiveBookworm. Hope you like evil because this PMV is focused on villains.

Let me say I absolutely love this video. The catchiness of the song combined with the simplistic editing style really makes this an enjoyable vid for me. The effects are restricted to simple color correction, fades and an overlay. Simple and powerful. Now usually I find overlays to be distracting, but the sparing and tasteful use in key areas really adds visual interest to make up for some of the slower parts of the song. I also was pleased by the use of the high-aspect ratio letter boxing in specific areas of the song. Overall the editing gives a very dramatic and professional feel to the whole video.

Also Twilight kicking butt at the end make me very happy. Enjoy the video below!

Seven Devils by The Talkie Toaster

Cross Sticth Bookmark Pattern with outline

It’s my indescribable pleasure to have the honor of introducing a fantastic little PMV by my good friend and co-worker, to whom I privately refer as the Brave Little Toaster. He has crafted a very tight-feeling video that syncs up amazingly with the rhythms of the song. I like the way “Magic Duel” is retold in a cool and cinematic way through the lens of the music and some excellent film-making on the part of the BLT. I really can’t wrap my head around why this guy doesn’t make more PMVs, because he’s really, really good at it. You hear that, BLT? That’s my formal plea. Make more videos!

And so, until his new video in 2113, enjoy this century’s delicious Toaster snack below!

Monty Python and the Elements of Harmony (Ending Scene) by LimeyLassen

my_little_pony_and_the_holy_grail___mane_6_by_runicrhyme-d6q99il

So check it out. Tonight on the Sunday Classics Showcase, we’ve got a hidden little gem from one of the funniest, and most venerable viridian PMV makers in our community. This video features a very faithful MLP re-telling of the classic film , because of course it is. You really can’t go wrong with any scene, but major props for using one of the most memorable moments, and most memorable characters, from the film. The image of Trixie hanging out on the old castle battlement and shouting at the Mane Six in a fancy accent is too entrancing to pass up. And can I just say how amazingly well the footage from the Season 1 premiere holds up, even 3 years later?

Remember when we were first introduced to the Elements of Harmony? I’ll be honest, my hopes were not high when they debuted. Magical shiny rocks that fix everything with rainbows? Seemed kinda fishy. But really, they’re part of our show’s history now, and I’m kind of shocked to….Oh…well, I suppose I should recuse myself from making that statement on account of some people maybe not seeing the Season 4 premiere yet.

So, that being said, enjoy this silly classic video, and we’ll see you again next week!

Trixie Parody of Eurobeat Brony The Living Tombstone’s Discord by WolfX1120

Trixie is at it again it seems, I guess some ponies just never learn. The song used in this video is a parody cover of a remix of an original piece, which while exhausting to think about is a very fun song in itself. The theme is that Twilight is fed up with Trixie’s shenanigans, and the scenes are well chosen to match the song.

Star Trek – Into Darkness by doctorwhoovius

A new Star Trek movie is coming soon, which means a new trailer, which means a new pony video of the trailer! This one works on two different levels: one being that it does a good job following the original trailer, but it would also work just fine as a trailer to the actual Magic Duel episode. Both Trixie and the villain from the upcoming Star Trek movie are pretty full of themselves, so it was a natural casting choice. The only other thing I have to say is…KHAAAAAAAAAAN!
