Editor, Little White Lies
What is Little White Lies?
I am going to give you the description of the magazine that we have developed for our illustration briefs, which is intended for people who may not know we exist. Here goes: Little White Lies is an independent, illustration-driven movie magazine published five times a year. Each issue contains a single cover film which then provides inspiration – editorial and aesthetic – to the pages inside.
What makes it different to the rest?
We use illustration. We try to push the confines of the print form with each issue. We cover the things that we are passionate about, drawing on a diverse range of voices.
Who makes Little White Lies?
A teeny tiny core team, with myself as a multi-tendrilled utility player on the editorial side, Laurene Boglio as AD (based in rural Massachusetts!), and colleagues Hannah Strong and Marina Ashioti providing words. Ex-digital editor and LWLies old guard Adam Woodward is now an editor-at-large.
Who reads it?
Creative people, cinephiles, millennials, artists, people who like to photograph magazine covers and post the results on Instagram.
Why do you work in magazines?
It’s a growth industry! Joking: it’s become an artisan profession, like making violins.
Aside from the print magazine, what else are you involved in?
A lot of commercial partnerships in our new custom publishing division, Printworks, creative ideas, editing various books we make with publishing partners across the globe, appearing on and co-producing the LWLies podcast, Truth & Movies. It never stops.
What would you change about Little White Lies if you could?
Expand the team, expand the page count, print specials on every cover, more issues per year, print in the US and Europe, more contributors.
Where do you see Little White Lies in five years?
An expansive global brand. A go-to for discerning, passionate and personal film journalism.
