'''Vocaloid Fanmade Promotion Video''', which is commonly abbreviated to ''Fanmade PV'',is a term often used in Japanese and it is what is called [[wikipedia:Music video|music video(MV), music clip or video clip]] in English. They can be considered similar to MAD/AMV (movie anime dojinshi/anime music video) works, and some PVs even claim to be these.

PVs are commonly seen on video-sharing sites such as {{wp|niconico}} and, sometimes, {{wp|YouTube}}.
Pvs are short film or videos made by fans of the vocaloid original work, not by the [[:Category:Producer|original creator]], and accompanying of the work sung by vocaloid (including cover). Various vocaloid fanmade PVs have been made and uploaded on video-sharing sites, such as [[Nico Nico Douga]] or Youtube, to support original works/videos/songs from which they derived. Most vocaloid fanmade PV creators use CG works, their own hand writing pictures, photographs or live-action films to create them. As relatively few PVs are completely animated, the false etymology of "picture video" has entered some parts of the English-speaking fandom.
 
   
Since vocaloid fanmade PVs are offsprings of the original works/videos/songs which are often called 本家(honke/the original) in Japanese, they are regarded as a kind of derivations of those originals just like [[wikipedia:Fan fiction|fanfiction]].<ref>[http://dic.nicovideo.jp/a/vocaloid-pv Nico Nico Pedia] - Vocaloid PV (Japanese)</ref><ref>[http://vfca.web.fc2.com/guidelines_for_secondary_use.html VFCA] Guidelines for Secondary Use</ref>

In the Japanese community, PVs are often made with authorization or commission of the original creator and/or groups.

The illustrator and animator scene is often absence from overseas fandom. Illustrators or animators of PVS are often paid or receive royalties from their works.

When it comes to searching for songs overseas fans have often recalled odd details about the PV and that has led them to be useful in quickly identifying forgotten songs. So PVs have an advantage of making a song memorable to viewers.

While Fanmade PVs can make the original works more popular, it must be noted that these concepts are subject to self-interpretations thus it may not be faithful to the author's original intent. This can include insertions of plots and settings that were unspecified or never present in the original. Songs like "[[ブラック★ロックシューター (Black★Rock Shooter)]]", "[[Corruption Garden]]" and "[[Secret]]" have featured characters that have been mistaken for the VOCALOID singer even when they are their own separate character.
While those PVs can make the original works more popular, it must be noted that '''''what vocaloid fanmade PVs show are not always faithful to the original works/videos/songs or the original authors’ intents''''', for they are created with each fanmade PV creator’s own intention.

Some popular PVs have been the center of arguments among fans who will use one interpretation over another to explain the purpose of a song. One such example is "[[Secret]]", whose title, song and famous PMV do not match each other. The song was a plagiarized work and its title referred to its hidden status as a song on the website Nico Nico Douga with it never been labelled as the title of the song. In addition the songs meaning has never been stated. Fans have often tried to guess the meaning of the song and due to the famous PMV associated with it <!--- insert PMV name maker!--->, the meaning has often been misinterpretation with the PMV often greatly influencing the interpretation, even though it has nothing to do with the song itself.
Some PV creators are misinterpretations of the original works and feature unrelated topics. Quite a few PV creators depict their own stories and settings which are unspecified in the original videos/songs with free interpretations and imaginations of their own. In some of those fanmade PVs, what they depict are completely different from what the songs mean is an can even be completely the opposite. Songs like [[ブラック★ロックシューター (Black★Rock Shooter)]], [[Corruption Garden]] or [[Secret]] have featured characters that have been mistaken for the Vocaloid singer even when they are their own seperate character.
 
 
Though the fact itself does not take away from the value of them, it is one of the reasons why they often invite misunderstandings among fans and make fans clash with each other over how to interpret the songs.

Revision as of 19:32, August 20, 2019

VOCALOID Fanmade Promotion Video, also known as Fanmade PV, is the phrase used within the VOCALOID community to describe a video set to music featuring a VOCALOID.

PVs are commonly seen on video-sharing sites such as niconico and, sometimes, YouTube.

Concept

Promotional videos can range from animated shorts, typography, live-action films, and drawn images set to music. These concepts are to show support for the original song and those who produced them and are regarded derivations of the originals just like fan fiction.[1][2].

In the Japanese community, PVs are often made with authorization or commission of the original creator and/or groups. And it is not uncommon for groups, or circles, to include a illustrator or video maker to help. This is due to the more organized and professional level of the overall VOCALOID producer scene in Japan as many are indie, amateur or otherwise student musicians. The illustrator and animator scene is often absence from overseas fandom. Illustrators or animators of PVS are often paid or receive royalties from their works.
