Winterbringers: The Film

I had a great afternoon on Thursday, meeting Raffaella Arcidiaco and her P5/6 class, who have filmed my book ‘Winterbringers’. It was fascinating to hear how they adapted the story, made scenery, chose locations, learned their lines and found time to film the whole thing. On the way they had to cope with Scottish weather (though it did give them some nice snowy outdoor scenes), the accidental throwing away of all the scenery, noise from the rest of the school when they were filming and all sorts of other challenges. I am completely amazed that they stuck with it with such dedication and determination. The film is now safely transferred to computer and being edited, and I’m very much looking forward to attending the premiere at the end of the month.

Almost every author dreams of having a story filmed. A huge and heartfelt THANKYOU! to Parsons
