This video is a collab with Baycun!!!! Took 3 Years!!!!!!!!!
This video has been the biggest fucking thing either of us has done. This is a culmination of everything I have worked on up to this point but hopefully won’t be the end. It's a labor of love and effort that we have poured basically 3 years into. Started in March 2014, this took 3 years and 4 months to complete, though granted a lot of that time was either spent doing normal school/work stuff, or doing fun things together, and several times on other videos or music that the both of us have put out since we began work on this. I’m fucking glad I can put this out as it is a milestone of everything that has happened up to this point. We want to firstly thank Thatcomputerperson and Spriteclad, who both had very helpful and constructive input on various ideas for sections or themes to incorporate into the video, and Thatco even sent a very, very small entry to the video which you should be able to notice when it comes up. Baycun’s description will talk more about the specifics of the video while mine from this point on will cover my interpretation and emotional attachment to it.
The immense time that this video took made it become a very unique product to me. The original idea for this video was to have the visuals be a progression of different eras of YTPMV and the different styles that encapsulated those eras. However, we spent so long on this product that it actually became much more of a personal journey. The video very much shows a progression in both of our styles and both of our tendencies as the video continues on. The sources we chose early on we grew to not like (cough, cough Howtobasic) and even the motivation for the video changed as time went on. The video was original going to be a gift for Goluigi (the creator of the song), however us growing distant from the creator made me personally feel like this video isn’t tied to his song or the sources or even to YTPMV; it’s tied to me and Baycun personally as our own creation. And this is where I like YTP and YTPMV to go, distancing yourself from the source material and using it to be a tool to express one’s own artistic vision.
So, with all of that being said, I hope everyone enjoys this video as much as we put an immense amount of time and effort and dedication into it. Thank you everyone for YTPMV, and for being here, and most of all, for watching and contributing to this video as well as this community as a whole.
