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 Hook. They decide to abandon the race and try and save the whale. This is a modern Moby Dick, the twist being that there is a happy ending for everyone featuring this $Billion Dollar Whale, even the whalers. Herman Melville would approve.

In this scene, John Storm discovers an advanced solar powered boat tucked away in a large waterside workshop in a sheltered location near Nelson's Cove, (Nelson Bay) on the East coast of Australia.

 

This is the inheritance that his uncle, Professor Douglas Storm has bequeathed to him, more as a challenge.

 

He assembles the vessel, discovers a wonderful diner, and names the unusual boat the Elizabeth Swann. He also befriends a cat.

THE BRIEF

 

For this scene, aim for 3 pages (sides) and 6-8 illustrations, suggested as:

 

1. Location shot West coast of Australia focused on Sydney and Nelson Bay, New South Wales, in similar (treasure island, antique) style to the map at the foot of this page, with Indiana Jones (Tintin) style arrows for route and small Jeep as the mode of transport.

2. Picture of the wire fenced compound and hangar off the Cove.

3. The Mary Belle fishing boat in the background and Roo introducing himself to John.

4. Inside the hangar, the Elizabeth Swann un-assembled and covered in dusty tarpaulins.

5. John calling George Franks about the discovery of the hangar.

6. John visiting Henriettas Diner, outback style restaurant.

7. John bolting the aluminium hull sections together in the hangar to look like a boat.

8. John driving off in his Jeep to Henriettas, with the cat looking after him.

A boat much like Roo's Mary Belle, except the wrong colour and very rusty. Roo's boat is green and off-white, and nicely maintained.
