Dean & vid camera
I always enjoy the spn_cinema challenge but I have NO idea what I could do this time.
I love playing with genres and as the show homages SO many films it's great to play with them.


Hmmm....


Nope... coming up empty. If you all have any ideas feel free to chuck 'em at me.

I'm not really sure what the challange requirements are, but how about something using or in the style of Monster Movie? I don't think the boys have ever looked better than in blk and white, so maybe a classic movie homage?

Casablanca?
The Maltese Falcon?

Or what about Its a Wonderful Life? Showing what life would be like without the boys?

Wow... how awesome would it be to be able to show what the world would be like without the Winchesters...You'd have all the people they'd saved would be dead.

No idea how you'd actually show that.... but the idea is fabulous.

I adore It's a Wonderful Life. We even have our very own Clarence. :)

I also love the idea of working with the B&W footage. For the challenge you have to pick a particular movie. I claimed Psycho a couple of years ago and played with B&W footage, but not from Monster Movie. The problem is making sure the show has footage to support the chosen film...

Hmmm...

Thank you sweetie. I think the muse is stirring...

I'm guessing this is so obvious that you've already thought of it and dismissed it for very good reasons: The Untouchables

You'd not have much material to work with, but if you're just trying to do a trailer/title sequence thing it might work.

Hee! I had most definitely thought of The Untouchables. I had even typed it into the comment above and then deleted it. My worry was how to structure it... but a trailer or title sequence might just work. ...

It's kinda begging to be done methinks...

Thanks hun.

Totally no ideas to throw in the hat, but I'm sure you'll find something awesome! :D

I'm actually not sure I'll have the time....:(( There's been some great ideas posted here so I might be able to squeeze in something.

And also... I saw you convo on Twitter and I say BOO HISS to that author. Any author should be thrilled to have you as their artist. I hope you have the option to say... thanks but no thanks...

*hugs*

Looking forward to whatever you settle for, BB! :D

And IDK, it's not just here. She's just been the final straw, in that regard. I had reactions like her's before, and I've had it. People don't want my kind of artist work on their fic? Fine. I, at least, won't do it again.

I hope you have the option to say... thanks but no thanks...
I didn't, it's posted. ;) Gotta say, though, I wasn't very motivated and it probably shows.

*huggle*

Looks like I can't settle on anything...:( I tried, but I can't picture how to make anything work.

Oh well. I'm not sure I have the time anyway.

Bah! re authors' reactions. I don't really get that... surely this is all about working together and having fun. We have a saying in Australia..(that I kinda love).."it's not sheep stations"... meaning... we aren't talking about something that's gonna make or break lives here. We're talking about fans having fun together, supporting each other....

*sigh*

If I wrote fic I'd be thrilled to have you as my artist. :DD

(oooh.... if you're at all interested (and have the time) in making a banner for a rather large motel picspam I'm working on let me know...:D)

Ah man. :/ But that happens. ♥

We're talking about fans having fun together, supporting each other....
Exactly. I don't get it either. And you're so sweet. *hugattack*

Sure, what have you got in mind? :)
28th-Feb-2012 11:43 pm (UTC)
*hugs*

I'll PM you. I haven't got anything specific in mind but we can throw around some ideas. :)

I'm not sure if this will tickle your muse's funny bone but...

Maybe Sam is 13 going on 30 (or maybe more like Tom Hanks in 'Big')?

Something like... Meet Sam, he is a serious, broody sort of kid who doesn't want to be in the family business and dreams of growing up and having a normal life...
27th-Feb-2012 11:59 am (UTC)
Hee! That would be SOoooo cute..

It would be awesome to some sort of AU where Sam is deaged...

I'll have to ponder that one...

Thanks sweetie.

Here's an idea...do something in the style of Donny Darko and use the "Mad World" tune. We've seen how dark and intense Sam can be and we've seen how Dean can be when he's got nothing left to lose. Remember when he decapped that vamp and had that gleeful look on his bloodspattered face?
Either brother or both would be able to show how messed up in the head a person can become. Plus, you'd get to play with timelines and alternate realities. What's not to love?
;P

Hey honey! <3


Oh I love Donnie Darko... AND that song...:) I also love the idea. Not sure how I could make it like the movie... but love the idea of showing their intensity with thats song.

Another one to think on.

And THANK YOU for my dragon! <3333

Maybe not so much as making it like the movie. More like using the concept of it to portray how strange and screwed up their lives are and how no matter how much they try to make a difference, whatever happens is going to happen anyway.

And you're very welcome!
