For those of you who don't know the story of the Count of Monte Cristo it's a little hard to explain what's going on here unless you know it. The movie is pretty good so you could check that out if you don't feel like reading, but here's a simple synopsis of what's going on for now:

Twilight is playing Mondego, he is Edmund Dantes' best friend, but he's jealous of him so he plans to send Dantes to a jail so he can take his woman Mercedes. Danglars played by Applejack is the first mate on a ship. (He was supposed to be Captain but Dantes just took the spot from him, hence why he hates him). And Villefort played by Rarity is the prosecutor (or he's going to become it, can't remember). He wants Dantes gone because of some confusing reason involving treason and his family. Anyway, these men get together to send Dantes to the jail: the Chateau d'If, (its the jail people get sent if other people want everyone to think they're dead). Which is what they are planning here, and that's all you need to know for now.

We did a lot of things differently this video:
It's in colour.
It has lyrics on screen (don't expect this every video, on screen lyrics distract from the images and sometimes we'll just want you to be immersed with what's on screen).
And it was edited in After Effects CS6 for the first time.

This video was a bit of a training ground for us, using it as practice for After Effects and trying out some good colouring. And while it lacks a lot of movement because they're all at a table, Sil was trying to focus on expressions and practice with that.

Oh and something important about the lyrics: They May Not Be Correct. We were unable to find any official lyrics for the song, so we sort of went with what we could find of fan made lyrics. So if it sounds like the wrong person is singing or the lyrics are different to what sounds like is being said, yeah, there isn't much we can do about that.

So yeah, I hope you all like it.

"A Story Told" is from the "Count of Monte Cristo Musical", performed by Patrick Stanke, Mathias Edenborn and Mark Seibert on the Concept album released in 2008. Written by Frank Wildhorn. We do not own it.

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and it's characters are owned by Hasbro. We also don't own it.

(You can get the music for the musical on iTunes but you can't watch the musical unless you see one on stage because there aren't any recordings).

Also if you wanted to know:
Mondego preformed by Patrick Stanke
Danglars preformed by Mathias Edenborn
Villefort preformed by Mark Seibert
(I think... They don't actually specify who sings Danglars or Villefort so I had to guess from their voices in other songs.)
