Break on through to The Other Side  
In case you missed it, counteragent has released a cool-as-hell (or would that be hot as hell?) SPN fanfilm. Run, don't walk.

The Other Side can be found HERE and HERE. Support counteragent and Naomi Novik and all the amazing cast and crew by checking it out. Leave them love! They worked so hard and did such a fantastic job.

I cooked up a little movie poster for the thing, too:

I modeled the poster off of the artwork of Drew Struzan (http://www.drewstruzan.com), who used to do movie posters all the time before photomontages became all the rage.

A pretty damned large version of our poster can be found here, and it's not even as big as I worked. This thing was HUGE, in case we wanted to print it out.

Click for bigger version. And this still isn't full-sized! My PS just about rebelled on me.

I'm really proud of what counteragent and company have done. It took a village, and this is what fandom is all about: SHARING FOR THE LOVE OF IT. :D (Screw you, Amazon, and your monetizing fanfic.)

You already know how I feel about this masterpiece! Brava, woman, brava!

Aw, thanks! (I owe you an email, don't I? Guh, I don't even know anymore. I'm such an addlebrain.) I love collaborations far more than I should, truly. I just think it's so brave of them to have done this; it wasn't easy. And they did it. And HOORAH!

Wowser you did a poster too! How cool. Loved this whole project from start to finish, fandom is so freaking awesome.

THIS fandom is so freakin' awesome!

Fantastic! So moody and atmospheric! I really love how the realism of their faces and hands contrasts with the stark simplicity of their clothes. I also adore the glint off Sam's axe and Dean's smoking gun. Awesome stuff :)

Truth? I was running out of time when I made that decision about the clothes, but then I sat back and went "Huh. It works!" If I'd polished the clothes, the faces wouldn't look nearly so important. And I ended up liking the graphic quality of 'em. Thanks, sage!

I dunno about brilliant but it was super-fun working with ALL the talented folk on this project! Yourself included. :D

Really beautiful poster -- you really capture them!! :D

There's something intriguing about the way you did their faces so they look even more like Sam and Dean than they really do -- Subtle and convincing! Nice work!!!

I initially had them with SamAndDean-colored eyes, which made the slight resemblance even more pointed, but we opted to change to the actresses' blues, so they could have portraits of themselves. :D I do hope the ladies like it!

I love working in Struzan's style. It brings back memories of my childhood! Thanks, Liss!

I really love what you did with this. Both ladies look amazing here.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on May 27th, 2013 03:23 pm (UTC)
I was totally inspired by your posters. I wanted to keep the earthy, middle-America vibe (that is such a hallmark of SPN.) We done good, gurl!

Damn I love this poster. That skull looks amazing and those are some badass chicks - I really love the hatching and the treatment of the hair (I'm gawking at the larger version on another winder). I'll have to check this out <3

It's totally the Drew Struzan treatment! And it makes the work look less digital, which is humanizing and a Good Thing.™

Thanks, Becc!
