Filming wraps for Nim’s Island 2
But it’s hard to believe that five weeks have gone by, and filming is over. It must be even harder for everyone living in that intense experience – and one friend has told me that she’s already homesick for Nim’s Island, even if it is an imaginary place. Long hours, working intensely with other people for over a month… all very different from the solitary world of a writer.
However, on one of my non-solitary days at a school festival I heard two boys chatting at the back of the signing line: “Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a movie of Nim at Sea too?” They both had copies of it, so I was able to give them the good news when I signed their books. (I’ll post about that school another day, as I’m hoping to be sent a couple of pictures of students’ work. I’ve been very lucky with some of the amazing schools I’ve been to lately.)
So here are a few more pictures.
