Those promotional posters...

Abaddon - delicious
I made this gif to compare the differences in those promo posters.

Crowley's flaming carnation is curious. Not sure if that's purely Zeke, or Sam with the hint of Zeke. I think the former, but open to interpretation I suspect.


1: Prepare for the Fall
2: The Heavens have opened but Hell will reign.

Nice! I hadn't realised until I saw this that the angelic comet trails were closer to earth on the 2nd poster... Someone said the carnation is a symbol of love so it's odd to have Crowley holding it at all.

I just had a quick look and found this: In Portugal, bright red carnations represent the 1974 coup d'etat started by the military to end the fascist regime ongoing since 1926.
Light red carnations represent admiration, while dark red denote deep love and affection.
And in France carnations symbolize misfortune and bad luck.

I actually like the Portuguese one for Crowley and Abaddon!

Not really, especially since we know that the human part of Crowley only "wants to be loved." Having that symbol of love (if that's what it is) burst into flames, now, that is interesting. ;)

Ooooooo, AWESOMNITY!!!!

I've been looking at the promo pics in separate tabs and thought about posting them side to side to have them somewhere to compare them, but THIS IS INFINITELY BETTER. It's such a cool idea to have the promo poster change with what we learn and still tease us about what will happen.

And it seems like the angels aren't going to be the biggest threat after all? 9x02 and Abaddon and Dean's "gotta remember who the real monsters are" would sort of suggest that...

My heart is full of squee now! \o/ \o/

Yeah, I was thinking about doing the same and then thought I could use my vid program and my gif program and create a cross dissolve of the two. I didn't pick up the flame or the angels falling closer to the earth before I did this. :)

I think the demons are going to play a big part in this season too (though if they insist on punching instead of using their powers to fight Sam and Dean then they're not going to fair very well!)

Wow. This is great!

Great work, bb! I hadn't noticed the angel trails, either. Curious. Now I really hope there's another poster (or three) in the series, because what happens when the trails hit the ground? And does Dean do any transforming of his own? Or Castiel?

Creation-wise, was "tweening" involved in this gif-ery? I think I see it when Sam's head turns. ;)
18th-Oct-2013 12:35 pm (UTC)
Oh wouldn't that be great! The poster changing as the season progresses. I'd love to see Cas change cloths and Dean...oh Dean...I can't even imagine what's in store for him this season.

OOh, what's tweening? I created a little vid with a cross dissolve in it and imported it into PS to make the gif. I am SURE there are better ways to do this but it's the only way I could work it out....;D

Thank you for doing this! I had noticed the wings of course but not the other little details.
18th-Oct-2013 12:35 pm (UTC)
My pleasure. :)

This is fascinating. Thanks for sharing.

Great work, my friend! And I hadn't noticed how much closer the angel trails were to earth in the second one. It seems clear that it's Sam in the first and Ezekiel in Sam in the second, enabling Sam to look ahead, scraggly, still healing wings behind him. I think I am really going to enjoy the myth arc this season.
18th-Oct-2013 12:44 pm (UTC)
Thanks bb! I remember thinking it was weird having Sam look down when the first poster came out. Now it makes sense! I am very excited with the myth arc this season (said with a little trepidation because who knows where they are going with this...*g*).
18th-Oct-2013 12:55 pm (UTC)
This is awesome! I hadn't notice so many changes in the two posters..really only the wings...but the carnation bursting into flames and so many other things really stand out in your gif. It really makes you wonder...
19th-Oct-2013 11:16 am (UTC)
Thanks! The changes are indeed curious - especially Crowley's flower. I'm hoping we'll get another one as the season progresses. :)
18th-Oct-2013 02:03 pm (UTC)
The idea of these dual posters is a fantastic one - they know how much we love to pick things apart and ponder them!
19th-Oct-2013 11:19 am (UTC)
It is! It's nothing I would have imagined they'd do. And so good they managed to keep Sam!ezekiel a secret.
18th-Oct-2013 02:15 pm (UTC)
That's totally creepy in gif format, but much cooler that way. Good job!
19th-Oct-2013 11:21 am (UTC)
Thanks hun! I was curious to see if it was possible to overlay them and check what exactly had changed.
18th-Oct-2013 02:34 pm (UTC)
This is SO cool! :D
19th-Oct-2013 11:21 am (UTC)
Thanks sweetie. I love that they went to this much trouble with their promotions.
18th-Oct-2013 03:14 pm (UTC)
Oh this is excellent. :)
18th-Oct-2013 05:23 pm (UTC)
Hey are you okay if I post your gif on my LJ? I kinda want a copy for posterity. :)
18th-Oct-2013 03:49 pm (UTC)
That's pretty cool. :)

As far as Sam and Zeke, I tend to think the former as well. Not just because of the wings in the shadow, but also the expression on Jared's face as well perhaps? Not sure but it is pretty cool.
19th-Oct-2013 11:23 am (UTC)
Yeah - I think it's all Zeke. Jared's body language and facial expression is very different to Sam - but it could be a bit of both, that's for sure.

Thanks! :)
