Little White Lies Creative Brief

To tie in with the release of Matthew Vaughn’s movie, Kick-Ass, based on Mark Millar’s comic-book series of the same name, Little White Lies set a competition to take the film of your choice and re-imagine it in the form of a comic, within a single six-panel page.

After wracking my brains trying to decide what film to use, I finally decided (for reasons I can't quite explain) on David Fincher's Fight Club.

All entries had to be black and white, and also had to fit within the set panel template, which was an interesting limitation to be faced with. It was also a challenge to condense the essence of the film into just 6 panels, and as a result I ditched some of the less relevant sub-plots and characters. As Edward Norton's character in the film provides a constant narration to the events, I decided to avoid using speech bubbles, and instead use narration boxes to capture the tone of the movie...

I'm happy with the final result and enjoyed working on this project... The best selected entries will be included in a special digital edition of the magazine, and the winning entry will be printed in a full-page of the next issue of Little White Lies...Fingers crossed!
