Author says Nim’s Island filming a surreal experience – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
I had a fun little interview with Craig of ABC North Queensland yesterday afternoon – the thought of live radio is always a bit daunting, but Craig was so friendly and enthusiastic, it was great.

Meeting (or chatting to) so many great people has been a lovely side benefit of the movie process!
