Download: Sendspace: (small 30mb) || 4 Shared: (large 70mb)
Stream: You Tube (blocked in some countries)


After watching this video I was struck by how similar the cellists look like Sam and Dean. I thought it would be pretty easy to cut up footage from Supernatural and blend them together with the cello footage. I've always wanted to montage the boys fighting and this seemed like a good opportunity to do that. Well, it wasn't nearly as easy as I thought. Trying to get the right mix of each footage and create a structure that (hopefully) means something ended up being a pain in the butt bit of a struggle. But like a dog with a bone I kept at it (with cupidsbow's help) and ended up with something I'm pretty happy with. In fact, there's an edit in here that is probably one of my all time favourites ever. It won't look like much to anyone else, but it makes me bounce whenever I watch it.

It's weird that I really don't like it when they boys beat each other up, but man...it's pretty sexy when they do (is shallow *g*)

No money made but comments are gratefully and warmly accepted. <33

ETA: Hopefully viewing and DL problems are no sorted. Let me know if not. <3

Oh gosh, this looks so awesome. It says content is blocked in my country (USA), so I will try and DL it! I hope to return soon to give you feedback.
7th-Apr-2012 01:50 am (UTC)
Oh it's blocked in the US? Darn...

I'll see if I can make another streaming file.

Thanks for letting me know.

Fantastic! (as usual).

Even my mom noticed the resemblance to Sam and Dean. This was a brilliant idea brilliantly executed.

(I'm glad you were able to watch it. Others seem to be having trouble...)

Thanks for watching and commenting.

I can't see the vid you made. error message says blocked in my country due to copyright blah blah blah bullshit. So much for 'Freedom Of Speech*
My son showed me the original vid of Sulic and Hauser playing the cellos and asked me "Mom, are these those guys you like on that Show"?
I had to watch it for a minute or so because of how closely they DID resemble 'those guys on that Show I like'.
This is the conclusion I came to after doing some research. These dudes are world famous musicians independently of each other and have played together many times. My personal opinion is that someone noticed the resemblance and said "Hey, why don't you make a vid that resembles 'those guys on that Show you like'? I think it's possible that one or the other or both are SN fans.

Think about it, they're usually wearing tux and tails performing, in this vid one's wearing a leather jacket, the other has floppy hair. It's a little eerie how closely they resemble Sam and Dean, isn't it?
7th-Apr-2012 02:24 am (UTC)
Yeah... I knew it was blocked in some countries. A real pain. I'm uploading to Vimeo to see if I can get a stream to work.

The resemblance is uncanny. It would be cool to know if they were trying to imitate our boys...

Girrrl, that was AWESOME! :DDDDDDD
7th-Apr-2012 02:25 am (UTC)
Thanks honey! \o/

Okay I'm back! I was scared to sign up for 4shared but IT WAS SO WORTH IT, THIS VIDEO WAS AMAZING! THE EDITING IS OUT OF THIS WORLD! My favorite part might be just this tiny moment at :40 when they are both climbing to their feet, SO GOOD. I also really love :06-:08 when Dean pushes Sam in time to the music. And the scene with the pool table! LOL okay I'm dying to know YOUR favorite part!
7th-Apr-2012 06:19 am (UTC)
Oh YAY! Thank you for doing that! I have since made a sendspace link and it's now (hopefully) streaming through Vimeo.

I'm so glad you like the bit with them getting up. It's weird, I was having trouble with that whole middle section and my beta mentioned that in terms of the structure it needed a "cat and mouse" bit. I had that in mind when I put laid that clip down....it made me think of them getting ready to pounce again.

Thanks so much for letting me know your favourite bits.

The edit I mentioned is at .47 when not!Dean backhands Sam - his face his spun around and then the next clip is the cello spinning around. Just something about that makes me happy.... :))

Thanks so much for taking the time to get the Dl, watch and leave such a lovely comment. <333

weeee :) It's like pavlovian at this point. I see a vid from you, and not only do I \o/, but I think of it in terms of that emoticon!

4shared gave me Smile Like You Mean It to download instead, (sigh, yeah, YT blocked in the US. Never happened before, actually) but Sendspace saved the day.

Anyway, very fun to watch :) I like how you used clips of the cellists that kept it from being obvious they weren't the boys, and how well you made the sharp accents in the music punctuate the hits and blows they were dealing out. It's really interesting to see that much violence without any sound from all the physical damage around them. I also scrolled down to see which editing bit you really loved, and yeah, absolutely, that quick little flash of clips looks fantastic together :D

TL;DR: \o/!
7th-Apr-2012 06:26 am (UTC)
Ha!! \o/

Um... the Smile Like you Mean it dl was my fault.../o\ I pasted the wrong link. (Oh man.. *hides*) It's fixed now. Hopefully I've sorted out all the kinks...

I'm surprised it's blocked in the US. It's a shame because that's where most of the YT views come from.

But thank you!! I'm so glad those bits worked for you. I concentrated a lot on getting the hits on the beats - it's something I really enjoy when editing.

THANKS so much for your feedback and for \o/ :D
7th-Apr-2012 03:51 am (UTC)
*eee* OMG. Love it!

Seems there's some viewing / downloading issues.

I noticed the original YouTube S&H videos have been made private and can't be viewed anymore either. :(
7th-Apr-2012 11:51 am (UTC)
Yay! So glad you enjoyed it.

Shame to hear original S&H vids have been made private.

You could check out their website. Their vids might be viewable to all...?


thanks so much for watching and commenting.
7th-Apr-2012 04:51 am (UTC)
Haha! Very cool vid. They do look a bit like our boys too!
7th-Apr-2012 12:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks hun.

It's an uncanny resemblance...I think it's they way they are dressed and the fact that one has short hair and one floppy hair. :)

thanks so much for watching.
7th-Apr-2012 05:16 am (UTC)
Thank you for the Sendspace link!

What an awesome concept. Great edits, hon, and you're right about the resemblance -- their attitude is certainly spot-on.

Have a wonderful holiday. Mine is off with a bang! *smirks* <3
7th-Apr-2012 12:17 pm (UTC)
Yay.. so glad you got to watch it. :)

Hee... I love their attitude. In the actual clip they start off pushing each other around. I think that was the actual inspiration. ;)

7th-Apr-2012 06:16 am (UTC)
OMG, I remember seeing that cello video before because someone has linked to it saying it totally looks like the Winchesters. And now you have added actual Winchesters!

Very cool!
7th-Apr-2012 12:18 pm (UTC)
That's probably the link I saw. I remember watching and thinking it would be cool to actually put the Winchesters in there somehow. it took a while to figure out just how...

Thanks so much for watching and commenting hun.
7th-Apr-2012 06:42 am (UTC)
Brilliant! I definitely had the same thought about the cellists looking like Sam & Dean and I love how you cut this together :)
7th-Apr-2012 12:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed it. <3
7th-Apr-2012 06:57 am (UTC)
That was a total whump marathon. I feel sore just watching it ;)

And just FYI, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser are known collectively as 2CELLOS (all caps, no spaces). Sorry, the the music nerd in me is always a stickler for accuracy.

Fixed! Thanks hun.
7th-Apr-2012 07:09 am (UTC)
This is fabulous!

I've snagged a DL - you're awesome :DDD
7th-Apr-2012 12:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! :D
7th-Apr-2012 08:01 am (UTC)
I told you already on YT and gladly repeat once more, it's breathtaking! Would you mind if I repost it on my tumblr, of course with all the credits? :)
7th-Apr-2012 12:21 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much. So glad you like it. :)

Feel free to repost it. I do actually have a Tumblr but I'm still figuring it all out.

Maybe if I post it there you could reblog it? Is that how it works? (ack... takes me ages to work new places out).

7th-Apr-2012 08:25 am (UTC)
Finally! Somebody has mashed the two vids up! And it's awesome :D

First time I ever saw the cello vid I thought they looked so much like the Winchesters it was unreal. This is how the boys would have been if their dad gave them cello lessons instead of bow hunting lessons XD

Your vid is just so perfectly put together, thank you for doing this, it's perfect :D
7th-Apr-2012 12:22 pm (UTC)
Hee! Yes...I'm surprised it hadn't already been done. Though once I started working on it I KNEW why it hadn't been done...

Thanks so much for your kind words. <3
