Link to original video: Stupornatural at BadAtom.com

This is one of those vids were I have a plethora of people to thank because honestly, this vid would never had survived without them. Due to their cheerleading and amazing ideas this vid finally came together in a way I'm happy with. Massive hugs and thanks to _sharvie_my wonderful beta, maichan for her feedback and generosity (she actually purchased part of this song for me!), mithborien and lsketch42 for their amazing ideas and help and to the lovely deirdre_c for her feedback and encouragement. :D

And thanks to Michael DeSanto for giving me permission to play with his original footage. And for telling me he liked it! :D *phew*



Vid notes:

When I first saw Stupornatural I so impressed with the work that had gone into making this fanvid. The idea, the script, the production and of course how friggin' hilarious it was. I also saw that there was a trailer, photos, the soundtrack and even a gag reel available. That basically gave me the idea that a fanvid would be an interesting addition to that. I know. I'm kinda mad... So this is basically a fanvid of a fanvid. :)

I tried to approach it as if it were like any other episode of Supernatural. I tried to use the footage in the same way I would use Show's footage. That in itself presented a few interesting challenges. But also, finding the balance between dialogue footage and non. And with the help of the wonderful ladies above I think, I hope, I'm got the balance right.

Anyway. I'm blathering on because I'm a bit nervous about this one. It's not really like anything I've done before.

No money made but comment are gratefully accepted. Even of the concrit variety. :)

Does this qualify for me to post on my blog? It's a parody of a parody... :)

Nicely done.
23rd-Nov-2009 09:25 am (UTC)
Yes. Yes. :) It'a parody of a parody. That was precisely the idea. I want to use the parody Michael made and then make a parody of the Wayward Son opener they often do on the show.... :D

Thanks so much for watching. :)

OMG!!!! It's AMAZING!!!! LOL!!!!
23rd-Nov-2009 09:25 am (UTC)
Hee! YAY! So glad you thought so... :)
23rd-Nov-2009 03:41 am (UTC)
As I already expressed on Youtube...YAYZ!!

Love how you worked the final version and the motel scene and the ending rocked (lighting the match FTW!)

Now they just need some Stupornatural fanfic and they'll be all set ;P
23rd-Nov-2009 09:30 am (UTC)
*glomps* I'm so glad you liked the final version. Oh man, I wish I had thought of half the ideas you came up with. I'm loving the bedroom bit now.... and the end! Glad you like the match. \o/ (I even snuck in the "really"!)

Now they just need some Stupornatural fanfic and they'll be all set ;P

Hee! He said to me that it needs a fanvid of my fanvid of his fanvid. I reckon with some fic, a picspam and some meta anaylsis it would be a true set. Might even be able to work in a flow chart somewhere... :)

And yay. That was entirely the spirit I made this in.

Thanks again for your support and ideas. It really made making this tremendous fun.

I was so tired when I watched and commented on yt yesterday. When I watched the vid again this morning i loved it even more as my brain was awake (lol).
O:17 had me laughing. I could picture an exclamation mark over his head. Like in comics.
Anyway, as I said on yt: It came out great!!

Awww darlin'. You are so sweet. So glad you still like it. :) That bit at 0.17 was such a fun shot - my first few version didn't have it in. I'm glad I was able to sneak it in there..

Thanks so much for dropping by. Oooh and you have an icon now. :) He's so damn sexy!

YAY! You posted it! Hurrah!!!!

I (*shameface*) still haven't seen the original, but I think your fanvid tribute is superfuntimes. Go you! ♥
23rd-Nov-2009 01:24 pm (UTC)
:) I did! It was touch and go there for a while.... I've never been quite sure about this one. But what the heck. I ended up having a heap of fun making it. :)

Thanks so much for your support darlin'. Means a lot to me.
*squishes*

You did a really great job with this, I loved it. Man, our fandom is the best. :)
23rd-Nov-2009 01:26 pm (UTC)
Hi. Thank you so much.

And yeah - it's quite amazing what some people do. I'm still blown away by the effort and time these guys put into the original.

Thanks again. :)
23rd-Nov-2009 04:01 pm (UTC)

Hi. Yay!! Thank you so so much! :D :D

And yes - when I thought about doing it I thought maybe he wouldn't like me playing around with his footage. But he's been really sweet and seemed genuinely happy with the result. So it's been nice. :)

Thanks again for the comment and the rec.

Yay, it looks fantastic! *does happy beta dance* And I loved how you've reworked some stuff, the new match scene for instance. This was a lot of hard work but I think it really paid off.

It feels just like show! :P Which was the whole point so *high five* Whoo!
23rd-Nov-2009 11:11 pm (UTC)
Yay! Thanks so much hun and as always thanks so much for all your help This was a real toughie - but great fun in the end. :D :D

Can you believe that I'm actually stuck with what to do next....??!!

*hugs*

I didn't know about Stupornatural before seeing a link to this vid so I quickly went off to watch it before catching this. Thank you for introducing me to it, it was hilarious! And this parody is absolutely wonderful! It reminded me so much of the legit opening sequences at times that it was almost eerie. I really love the way you approached the editing on this--dare I say, some of your subtle choices improved upon the original parody work--and you definitely found the right balance between music and dialogue bits.

*does the dance of joy*
24th-Nov-2009 09:16 am (UTC)
Wow, this is such a lovely comment. Thank you. I was really hoping it would come across as a legit opening, that was how I first imagined the idea. I edited the music so it matched the their opening exactly. Then tried to edit the sequence as closely as I could.

Thanks so much for noticing. And commenting! :D

Now that I can look at this as a viewer, I think it's even more awesome and hilarious. And it definitely stands on it's own if you haven't seen the original footage. Congrats :)
25th-Nov-2009 08:59 am (UTC)
Oh thank you so much hun. And I can't tell you how much your help with this meant to me. So many great ideas. Thanks again. (And you'll have to watch the original at some point. There's lots of great observations in there that I couldn't fit in this).

That was hilarious! You did a great job! I love this concept of a fanvid of a fanvid. And thanks for introducing me to Stupornatural. :)

Hi. Thank you so much. The idea kinda tickled me I have to say. I'm I'm glad it helped you find Stupornatural. I think he did an awesome job with it.

:D
