“Each lecture will consist of its own article and inside will be one featured article of what I (the writer and illustrator) consider to be the most interesting.” Amy
At the end of this course of lectures you have to produce a Film/Animation, blog, newspaper or magazine that is a chronicle of the lectures and seminars that will be given throughout the term. This will mean you will have to take notes on every lecture so you can then write it up for your publication.
Each lecture, seminar or trip will have its own section, chapter, page or pages dedicated to it. As in a film, magazine or newspaper these will be your‘sections/articles’ and will be fully illustrated/captioned and referenced.
You will choose one of the lectures, seminars or trips to make into a ‘feature article’ and will be an extended piece of writing/filming of about 1,500 words/10minutes long and again it will be fully illustrated/Captioned and referenced. The form, design, layout and size of the film/magazine is entirely up to you. It may be a small pamphlet A5 size or a broadsheet A1 style newspaper or a website/blog or documentary or animated film.
You may want to use one of the styles discussed during the lecture series or a combination of styles, depending on what you want the publication to look like.
During each session you must take extensive notes and/or record the session, as a journalist would at a press conference, these notes are what you will base your articles/sections on. Each article section must be at least 300 words/1 minute long. You will start write up or story board this in the library immediately after the lectures whilst it is fresh in your mind.
Whenever you use a piece of information in your articles you must reference them by telling the readers where you got this information from, i.e. the author of a book, website, magazine etc.
A Magazine Is Born – the making of Little White Lies
**View the digital edition of The Black Swan Issue featured in this video online now for FREE**
We wanted to make a short film that captured some of the love, care and hand-crafted passion that goes into the making of an issue of LWLies. We produce six issues each year, and for the two month period that we’re working on a particular issue, we totally immerse ourselves in the movie and in the production process. While we obviously embrace digital in all forms, first and foremost we’re makers of honest, tangible and fine-smelling objects, and we hope that comes across in some way here.
We filmed this ourselves over the course of November/December 2010, and the film was edited for us by our friends at production company Archer’s Mark.
Darren Aronofsky’s musical collaborator Clint Mansell kindly offered us use of the track ‘A Swan is Born’ from his Black Swan soundtrack, and so we’ve called our short film ‘A Magazine is Born’.

Here’s a cool short film from Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, the guys behind Catfish. It’s called Metropolis II, named after its subject Chris Burden’s massive, die cast Hot Wheels cityscape. Make no mistake; this isn’t the obsessive hobby of an enthusiastic toy car collector. Burden is a respected artist and his vision is mesmerizing. The overlapping and interweaving roadways are completely functional and contain 1500 cars speeding around at up to 230 miles per hour. He’s also installed a bunch of electric trains, ending up with something that resembles Fritz Lang’s vision of the future, hence the name Metropolis II. Check out the short embedded above!
