  A WHALE OF A CONSERVATION TALE SET IN OUR PLASTIC INFESTED OCEANS

Please use our A-Z INDEX to navigate this site

 

 

 

The adventures of John Storm and the Elizabeth Swann. John Storm is an ocean adventurer and conservationist. The Elizabeth Swann is a fast solar powered boat. During a race around the world, news of the sinking of a pirate whaling ship reaches John Storm and his mate Dan Hawk. They decide to abandon the race and try and save the whale.

 

 

In this chapter, John Storm and Dan Hawk are anxious about Kulo's health. They call Steve Green asking for urgent help. Steve, calls Sky News, Tom Hudson for help, relying on past cooperation to beg for the impossible.

 

The location of the whale has to be kept a secret.

 

In return for a part exclusive, Sky agree to spot for a chopper, and to pull some strings to transfer a marine biologist from another project, on an emergency basis.

 

Just as John and Dan are beginning to think they are on their own, an old Sea-King helicopter appeared on the horizon. Soon the noise was deafening and the sun almost blotted out.

 

Hovering a low as the pilot dare, the winch operator lowered Suki Hall onto the solar deck aft. The biologist almost skipped over the side, but John caught her and her luggage.

 

 

THE BRIEF

 

For this scene, aim for 3-4 pages (sides) and 10 illustrations, suggested as:

 

1. John calling Steve Green ship to shore, with Kulo Luna in the sea in the background, bandage over her wound.

2. Steve in bed bolt upright, suddenly awake, asking if the whale is dead.

3. Steve on the phone to Tom Hudson, hastily dressing, asking for a marine biologist in exchange for an exclusive.

4. John getting into the sea to calm Kulo Luna and himself.

5. Tom calling Dan on the Elizabeth Swann, there's a bloke called Hall on his way.

6. A helicopter in the distance appears in the sky heading towards the Swann.

7. The old Sea King helicopters hovers over the Swann with rear door open and cable ready to lower.

8. Suki Hall is lowered to the deck of the Swan.

9. John catches Suki, and they examine each other close up.

10. Thumbs up to helicopter pilot who swings away, as John welcomes Suki onboard.

 

These headings are only to guide you - some of the person to person pictures can be smaller (6 to a page or insets) - to help you to plan your layout if you fancy illustrating this Scene.
