Man Booker International Prize 2017
About our partners
The BBC World Service is an international news service available on radio, television and online. It provides impartial news reports and analysis in English and 40 other languages.
The Man Booker is an international prize so of great interest to the BBC's worldwide audience. The BBC wanted to highlight the chosen books and authors by making some short films. Working with the BBC team, we created two explainer videos for use on their social media channels (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) one with sound and one without to showcase the six shortlisted titles competing for the 2017 Man Booker.
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.
The films can be seen in context on the BBC Man Booker 2017 page here
