BBC: Man Booker International Prize


Man Booker International Prize 2017

About our partners

The BBC is an iconic British institution and one of the world’s most respected broadcasters, spanning television, radio, film and the internet. Renowned for its public service ethic, ‘Aunty Beeb’ is a fundamental part of the cultural fabric of Britain.

The challenge

Working with the BBC team, we created two explainer films for use on social media channels (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) one with sound and one without to showcase and celebrate the six shortlisted titles competing for the Man Booker International Prize 2017.

The film

Designed to work with without sound, the film brings to life short excerpts from the books with transcription on screen and evocative illustrations– perfect for smaller devices. Aimed at attracting a busy online audience, the film is framed enticingly as ‘6 Books to help you find yourself’. 

From letting go of your anger to remembering where you came from - you can find inspiration in the shortlist for this year's Man Booker International prize.
