Some years ago, a producer named Sarah Usmen, a recent graduate at the time from a film school in the US, approached me about making a film of Old Magic. She had very little financing to pull it off but she had enthusiasm and friends, mostly other graduates, who were happy to work on the movie just for the experience. They wrote a good script, held auditions for the roles of Kate and Jarrod, and with the idea of finding more funding, they filmed a scene.
The scene takes place after Jarrod is hurt in the classroom on his first day when a shard of jagged glass flies across the room and lodges in his arm. Kate volunteers to take him to Sick Bay but ends up taking him to her place.
Unfortunately the film didn’t go ahead and this clip is the only scene that was made. See what you think of it and feel free to let me know your thoughts. The Old Magic Adaptation Original Scene is on YouTube under the name of Queens of Waban.
There have been several offers to make my books into movies, and even a TV show, but unfortunately nothing has come of them yet. This scene is the closest any of my books have come to the silver screen.
