The Sound of Strawberries

A few months ago I made a video of my ‘When You’re Frightened, Honey, Think Of Strawberries’ story, which appears in Not So Perfect (and originally appeared in Ink, Sweat and Tears).

Not being a film maker, and not knowing the first thing about making films, it didn’t turn out to be quite as wonderful as I’d hoped.

It’s been up on my Facebook page for a while now and I thought it might be interesting, and perhaps even fun, to share it here. So here it is.

    I think you're putting yourself down here, Mister. Apart from an odd camera wobble, I think the film is very poignant.

    Way to go Steven Spielberg!! This is excellent Nik, and great to hear the storyteller telling the story as it should be told.WarmestRob

    I really liked it, Nik. Great to have the vocal interpretation of the author, which adds an extra dimension to the words on the page.(PS my mum loved your book so much she wanted to pinch my copy. I told her to buy her own!)

    Aw thanks Janette. (It was all hand held, which would explain the wobble!)Cheers Dan. Hmm. My voice. Nuff said!Thanks Rob. You're FAR too kind!Sherri! Hello! Lovely to see you back. Thank you. I'm quite a firm (or sad!) believer that stories should work as well when read aloud as when read, so that's really cool to hear. And I'm thrilled your mum liked it, and I hope she has!! :)Thanks all. You've cheered me up! Hooray!Nik
