BOOKSHOTS, 2000

It’s an idea for an audiovisual format: micro authors’ film that may range from the usual thirty seconds of the advertisement to one minute and a half (but there is actually no limit) in which the artist or the director, inspired by the content of the book, offer their own personal vision of it.

 

A genuine interpretation, with a language made of images and not words. It’s and unusual and fascinating way to promote reading and to encourage the purchase of a book, whichever it mat be, whether a novel or an essay, a collection of poems or children’s tales.

 

Any theme or story may be interpreted by this format.
