How Little White Lies make Little White Lies

Hot on the heels of their latest Black Swan edition, Little White Lies magazine has produced a short film that distills the two months it takes to complete an issue into one minute and 55 seconds

Hot on the heels of their latest Black Swan edition, Little White Lies magazine has produced a short film that distills the two months it takes to complete an issue into one minute and 55 seconds…

The fast-paced edit gives you an idea of the amount of work that goes into one issue, and also a glimpse of the work that didn’t quite make it to the final edition (see the various type treatments in the running for the cover, courtesy of Mr David Carson. You can see his final cover for the Black Swan issue on our post, here).

Nice, too, to see a typewriter being put to good use in the production of a magazine.

The film was made over the course of November and December 2010 and edited by production company Archer’s Mark. Director Darren Aronofsky’s musical collaborator Clint Mansell provided the track, A Swan is Born, from his Black Swan film soundtrack.
