heidi: (Book 2)
I have so many feels about Show last night, I can't even. But I'll try...

Back in the summer of 2005, I was at the Beverly Hilton with my grandma; we were in town for my niece's babynaming and there were all these posters all over the hotel for the new season of shows on TheWB, including something called Supernatural. It looked too horrorshow for me.


It took until 2006 for so many of you to fangirl it so hard that I started watching; I haven't stopped, I'm still into Show, and that's why my soul is overflowing with joy at how much #Supernatural200 was/is a love letter from Supernatural to the fans, and from the fans to the show. Thanks to the network, the writers, producers, directors, cast (past and present) and everyone behind the scenes, but more than that...


Thanks to the creative minds in this fandom, because without their fic, art, cosplay & more, wouldn't exist.


This episode - this transformative episode of a show that's not some meandering genre dreck - exists because the fans have created so much awesome. No other show can do - or say - that like Supernatural can.


Go, fangirl.


Because what every Supernatural fan has done to create, inspire, share, rec, curate and squee about when fangirling (or fanboying) is the reason we have this episode. Thank you, fandom, for doing so much to make #SPN200 possible.


It's like Misha said last night:


I have a hunch that [livejournal.com profile] missyjack and I may try to parlay this into a panel at SDCC this summer, because what's happened with SPN and its fandom, as shown by, in and through this episode, is unique - and probably not emulatable by any other show, film, webseries or book series, but it's a fascinating showcase of what happens when The Powers That Be let the transformative works develop amongst the fans. It's aspirational, it's magical and it's family.

And now I have to go and ponder whether a fan-staging of "Fan Fiction" would be a transformative work/fair use.

A mashup of Supernatural, Glee, Heroes, Thor and Sherlock for a comprehensive examination of brotherly feelings in modern media formats, aka a lot of EMOTIONS!!! with Winchesters, Andersons, Petrellis, Odinsons and Holmeses.

Because really, when are they not angsty?

Set to Darren Criss & Matt Bomer's duet of Gotye's Somebody That I Used to Know
Spoilers for random episodes of all serieses/films including Glee 3.15.

Are you ready for the angsting? The melodious, musical, fraught, broyaytastic angsting? Good! Click here! )

You can also click to watch it here, and it's on my tumblr too!

Note: I saw Avengers this weekend; the vid was completed before I saw the film and there is nothing I would have done otherwise. I may remaster it and include a clip or two when a good copy of Avengers comes out sometime late this summer, but since I did this vid before seeing the film (omgflailSOGOODspoilerycommentslater) it is not spoilery for Avengers.

I was lucky enough to get to do a cover, some icons/ephemera and a vid/trailer for [livejournal.com profile] monsterfan's [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang fic, Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Here's the summary:
After discovering Adam, Sam and Dean wonder if John Winchester fathered any other children. They soon find out he did: their half-sister Mary Sue. The boys set out to find her, but it's not a happy reunion. Mary Sue is convinced they're a closeted gay couple and is hell-bent on helping them come out. She and her best friend even write about them in series of controversial blog posts. Meanwhile, her college campus is besieged with murders that Sam remembers reading on the Supernatural fan website, which he's developed a strange addiction to, and something weird is going on between Sam and Dean, leading Dean to conclude they've been trapped in an alternate universe where slash fan fiction is coming true.

I've also uploaded the trailer/vid here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VXH8JRDX

You can also visit Mary Sue's Facebook page here or check out the ebook cover here or behind the cut )
I had such an amazing time working with [livejournal.com profile] monsterfan on the art and vid I did for her fantastic fic. And I can't believe I'm done with all my BigBang responsibilities so early and now all I have to do is sit back and enjoy the other stories as they come in!

Icon is gackable, btw.

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c! I'm sure Dean has this song among his classic rock tapes somewhere, and while it's not exactly a follow-up to SPiNa Colada from two years ago, it can't be a complete coincidence that Romeo & Juliet was released almost exactly two years after Escape (The Pina Colada Song) or that the version used in this vid is from The Killers' Sam's Town LP era. Can it?

Notes about the vid )
heidi: (vidding)
Sometimes you do a vid too soon, and subsequent episodes make you wish you'd waited to add in that special clip or moment or scene. I've felt that way a few times, but this is the first time I've gone back and re-done a vid - because I felt like I needed to do something to mark the 100th episode of Supernatural, which airs tonight.

Always Keep an Edge On Your Knife (the 99 Luftbalons version) )

I'm pretty sure I included every single episode in there, but there are a few that are only in for half a second or so. If you think something is missing, let me know!

So this morning, [info]roguebitch did a one-line review of SPN 4.21 that was basically a request/inspiration for a vid, and I had a few hours to spare (I didn't really need to go to the gym, did I?) so I sat down and made the vid, which I hope means good things for my vidding mojo as I have six different, sensational, fun vid commitments between now and the end of June!

The vid has SPOILERS through SPN 4.21. You have been warned.

Title: No, no, no (Rehab)
Song by: Amy Winehouse
Rating: PG-13.
Spoilers through 4.21. Seriously, do not watch this until you've seen 4.21
Summary: Would be spoilery for 4.21. But if you've seen 4.21, you probably don't need a summary.
First, my thinky-thoughts about the episode... )

Title: Always Keep an Edge on Your Knife
Song by: The Corb Lund Band
Rating: PG-13. Gen.
Spoilers for all episodes of Supernatural through 4.14. Yes, there is actually at least one clip from every single episode of SPN in this vid.
Summary: A few words of advice from the Winchesters - and the Corb Lund Band. Basically, a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge against the vague uncertainties of life.
Moderate amount of crack - just the right quantity for a MOnday.
Created for [livejournal.com profile] la_perkins & friends as part of Sweet Charity (Fall, 2008).

( +Yes, a good sharp edge is a man's best hedge against the vague uncertainties of life!"> )

Watch it on YouTube (I reommend selecting the HD version and letting the vid load before watching, so it doesn't lag)

Note: This video was ridiculously fun to edit. From the first time I heard the song, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] la_perkins, I knew it would be adorably Winchestery, but it wasn't until I started working on it that I knew that it had to have clips from every single episode of SPN to date. But culling about 60 hours of Show into a three minute video was a bizarre and fascinating challenge, because it meant that sometimes I could pull the essence of a moment of Show, and other times the moment I was taking from a certain episode was almost at random - there's just over one second of Impala from S1 around the two-minute marker and I think I want to give a prize to the person who's the first to figure out which episode it comes from.

Hmmmm....

I have a spare copy of the S2 Companion book - and I'll get it signed by the person of the winner's choice at Eyecon this month. So yeah - first person to figure out which S1 episode the one-second clip of the Impala comes from wins it. :D I am crossposting this, so only answers in comments on my [livejournal.com profile] pear_vodka livejournal count.

Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] roguebitch, [livejournal.com profile] deirdre_c, [livejournal.com profile] sabaceanbabe and [livejournal.com profile] la_perkins herself for insightful beta comments and squee!
