"And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high." Ayrton Senna


I owe the immersion within the wonderful fandom to the editors of PMVs. My interest in ponies is derived from these amazingly creative works, found throughout the MLP editing culture. My enthusiasm peaked when I realized just how much I wanted to emulate said videos. Thus, the seeds of "Dash's Determination" were planted. This is my first venture in the PMV editing style, and I surely hope it isn't my last.


The song title is "Icarus", a personal favorite of mine from the musical project Mythos.

I'm delighted to announce the prestigious website of Equestrian Rhythm, has graciously given Dash's Determination the #1 spot on their top PMVs of May. Soggy Doggy wrote an eloquent review here:

Along with 7 carefully chosen awesome PMVs, which I highly recommend.

Equestria Daily also generously acknowledged the video:

A special thanks to




Whose efforts fine-tuned this video in ways I couldn't of possibly achieved by myself.

As many of you may well know, the fan art for the series is exceptional. I particularly enjoy Rainbow Dash fan art, so much so that I couldn't resist implementing it within my video. It would be dishonest of me not to link to all the creative works used. I apologize in advance, as the list is rather exhaustive.

If I missed anything, I do hope you inform me so I may remedy the situation. I wouldn't want to be anything less than forthright about the material in which made this video possible.
