Equestria is certainly a ‘wonderful world’ until you consider the amount of explosions, mythological carnivores, and traveling salesmen it contains. Yikes.
Luckily, we’re here on earth, with the internet, so that we can view this lovely video by an editor who was long thought to be eaten by a traveling salesman from Equestria. TheLightLeavesThee returns in an epic and super-dramatic PMV that really puts a new perspective on our fantastic fiction of frivolous horses.
One of my favorite parts of this video is indeed how TLLT puts a spin on the classic land of ponies. But another is how he used the epic finale scenes from the show and how he balanced those with effects and showed constraint. It’s easy for everyone to shove in their favorite scenes from FiM along with their favorite song. However, this video starts with smaller scenes and crescendos into the big ones, which really helps build an epic sense of progression. This is an important thing to learn if you plan on doing pony music videos of your own one day, and this particular piece is something worth looking at carefully.
