Fun Caps

So, in my spare time (what spare time?) I've been working on a time-consuming, most-likely-pointless, very fun Supernatural project. Similar to when I decided to make my timeline, it means that I have to watch the episodes again from the beginning - this time however, instead of just making notes, I get to make screencaps as well.

Sometimes I happen to hit pause at just the right time, and catch hilarious pictures. So, I thought I would share my two favorites from what I've done this past week:

Sam was just liking his lips, but press pause at the right moment, and it looks like he's intensely waiting to stick his tongue out at Dean.

And man...Jared was so LITTLE and skinny. It's astonishing. Jensen was little too, mind you...but you really notice it on Jared.

Yes, he's definitely filled out (and out and out and out. Did you see him bursting out of that fast food uniform? I thought the seams were gonna rip for sure.)

What strikes me most about earlier episodes actually is Dean's lighter voice. I swear gotten huskier every season, to an absurd degree (I watched 4x01 recently, and it seemed lighter than this season, and I remember at the time thinking it was already very hoarse sounding.) I want to hand that boy a cough drop. It must be a pain to keep that up.

Yeah, I've read some things about the voice, though it's all been second hand - that it was a conscious decision in the 2nd or 3rd season to start pitching it lower - how him and Misha have contests to see which one of them can speak the lowest - I don't know if these things are true though. I've never heard Jensen himself talk about the voice.

It's funny though, because in the little clip they have out of him doing voice-work for the Red Hood in the next animated Batman film, he seems to be using his regular voice...you'd think THAT would be a good opportunity to use a ridiculously low voice.

My sympathies go out to all the seams that are doing their best to hold garments on Jared. Occasionally I see comments from people complaining about Sam/Jared constantly wearing V-neck t-shirts...I wonder if it has occurred to anyone that with a neck like that, crew neck Ts just might be a little too restricting.

Heehee! The fun of screencapping!
The things and expressions I see....there's really some hilarious stuff. :P

Love that 1st one. *smack* Heehee!

Haha, indeed! I've never done much screencapping before. It's really hard to get the exact moment you want! Still, these happy accidents totally make up for it.

Can't beat that 1st one...Sam already looks pissy and Dean has that exaggerated angry frown...it's a lovely Winchester moment ;-)

What are you using to cap with?
Mar. 21st, 2010 05:31 am (UTC)
Snapshots in VLC.

Ah, well you can go frame by frame with the newest version of VLC. I've been using it a lot on the PC with the capping I've been doing of Seasons 2 & 3. ;) You just hit the E key and use Shift + the left arrow key if you need to jump back a bit.

DUDE! THANK YOU! Man, that makes this SO MUCH EASIER! Geez...I knew there had to be an option like that somewhere, but I couldn't find it. I guess I was too used to my old player, where all you had to do was hit fastforward or rewind while paused to go frame by frame.

THANK YOU! Man, I am like the worst for figuring out how to use software.

You're welcome! :)
I usually use the spacebar to quickly play & pause the video while I'm capping, but sometimes I do go frame by frame (like during action scenes, fight scenes, etc.).

If you have any other questions just let me know. Be happy to help. :)

Aw, the second one was adorable! Jared has really, uh, grown through the seasons but I miss Season 1 Jared and his bangs!
Mar. 21st, 2010 07:36 am (UTC)
Yeah...me too sometimes. I mean, I know character-growth and all that and he can't look like an overgrown puppy forever, but man, he was such an overgrown puppy back then. Now he's a sexy badass, I guess...with only occasional adorableness.

love the second pic. *giggles*
Mar. 22nd, 2010 07:01 pm (UTC)
Me too! :-)

they're such goofs. and still-shots are so much fun to see what the camera gets that's unintentional. ;)
