My partner and I intended to find a fantastic set for the comic story. Then we found The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2007).
In order to get familiar with the plot and the emotions in the film, I watched the film over the weekend, and... sobbed and sobbed and sobbed. I wrote on my weibo (a Chinese social media platform):
I was really moved by The Curious Case of Benjamin Button... If life is really in reverse, will people understand more about life?
Prompt of the project
Create a 6-panel comic using Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. The comic should tell a story, include some form of "interactivity", and be live on the web page.
We start creating our story by thinking about "interactivity". The special setting of the comic, which in our case is the flow of time versus the reverse life of the main character, is addressed by the scrolling effect. In the meantime, we tried to follow the traditional comic, as we include the word balloon, the time difference between and within the panel, detailed drawings, etc.
Please have a look and see whether we achieved our goal ~
