So I have chosen Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson. I think this will be fun for the visual effects and there is so much imagery to work with.
"The novel lacks a clear narrative and frequently delves into the surreal, never quite distinguishing between what is real and what is only imagined by the characters. They begin experimenting with a variety of recreational drugs, such as LSD, ether, cocaine, alcohol, mescaline, and cannabis. This leads to a series of bizarre hallucinogenic trips, during which they destroy hotel rooms, wreck cars, and have visions of anthropomorphic desert animals, all the while ruminating on the decline of culture in a city of insanity."
I have sketched out a few ideas and ran with one that involved the Smith & Wesson seen in the movie. Its only a rough and not committed to it or not sure how it would work out with folds and all. I also think all these ideas have the possibility of being combined.
