Breaking the Mold

I mentioned in an earlier post that a vast majority of the MMD dance numbers on You Tube use stock dance choreography. There was some lamenting in the comments regarding this. 

Note that 'vast majority' is not all.

Also, I think there are some official motion capture files for a few songs but for the rest of the dance videos there are some MMDers that do the original choreography that are downloaded by the bulk of the hobbyists that do that particular subset of videos. The original choreographers are generally credited in the videos. Note that there seems to be a high importance, at least in Japan placed on getting the dance moves to match the official music videos...it may be a cultural thing. 

However there are some completely original arrangements as well, particularly in MMD vids that are not exclusively dance numbers..

This one was done over 6 years ago and I'm pretty sure that its animation was not frame grabbed from some Garnidelia video. 

This seems to be by the same individual, and is in the same vein, albeit with an emphasis on...escalation.

As a bonus, both teach important life lessons!

Below is one refreshingly devoid of any lessons at all. I'm pretty sure that its animation does not closely follow any William Tell dance videos either. 

Finally there's one classic that has been pulled from You Tube, ostensibly for DCMA reasons, but given the plethora of videos of versions of that song on You Tube, its probably due to...well, see for yourself

3 I, too, think it's different. The 11 does not have much of escalation, more of continuation. And it is resolved by , whereas Len .

4 DailyMotion's geolocating of ads is disturbingly accurate.
