This is a fan video I made for a Dean/Cas (Destiel) fan fiction I read called Twist and Shout.
I tried to stick to flow of the story as much as possible, showing it from beginning to end, in order. In this video, I wanted to use some of the effects in the song as if we are seeing the slideshow/home movies that Dean plays for Cas in the hospital during those sections of the song. (usually depicted with the "flashing" of the slides changing)
When I first heard this song after having read the fic, it planted some little seed in my head and would NOT leave me alone! I couldn't think of anything else until I got this out of my head. I kept thinking 'oooh! This scene would look sooo good here!' and, 'this is the part where___ would happen'...so I finally broke down and made a video for it.
After about a week of editing (hey, I'm SUPER picky about timing and musicality, okay), I am finally finished and overall happy with how the work turned out. The only thing I am not really happy with is the funeral scene, and that is because in the fic, it mentions that they were in california with beautiful california weather. Wanting to stay as true to the fic as possible, I tried to find a funeral scene that was acceptable, but not like other T&S fan videos. And on that note, I tried, as much as possible, to not use the same clips as other T&S videos. I wanted my work to be original as possible, but some of the clips were just perfect for the situations and timing of the song. and can I just say, do you have any idea how hard it is to find a clip of milk falling and breaking? Turns out, VERY difficult!
Fun Fact: I cried, several times, during the making of this video.
Hope you enjoy it, and that it is up to the standards of the fandom.
Twist and Shout, by gabriel, standbyme
Fic summary:What begins as a transforming love between Dean Winchester and Castiel Novak in the summer of 1965 quickly derails into something far more tumultuous when Dean is drafted in the Vietnam War. Though the two both voice their relationship is one where saying goodbye is never a real truth, their story becomes fraught with the tragedy of circumstance. In an era where homosexuality was especially vulnerable, Twist and Shout is the story of the love transcending time, returning over and over in its many forms, as faithful as the sea.
