KULO LUNA - Grace and beauty, these giant fins propel the whale at considerable speed over thousands of miles from feeding to breeding grounds. Whales are just as much at risk from toxic plastic waste in our oceans as humans from eating marine produce. The only difference is that the whales did not put it there. It is not their fault. It is our fault and the fault of our governments for allowing it to be dumped at sea. Most governments are doing nothing about removing it from the sea. They are content to limit plastic production on land - as per the Agreement of the G20 at Hamburg in 2017.


If you think that our heads of state should be doing more, please support us in any way that you can to make Kulo Luna a lasting message for those elected to represent us, to actually carry out the wished of the people.



These pages are all about developing the Kulo Luna adventure story. If you are new to the industry, you will find out that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to climb this mountain. Hats off to those who mastered the art. For those of you just starting out these tips should help ease the pain.

7. Moving the story forward

A scene is the combination of time, place and setting you use to frame and show a significant moment or event in the story.

It is what we need to see in order for the story to move forward. It is a moment of drama or comedy – of action, of import, of change.

Scenes in which things are just explained or related are not scenes – they are exposition, because nothing really happens. In scenes, something significant must happen – however cataclysmic, or however tiny and subtle, save only for a brief location shot.

So ask yourself – in what way is the scene moving the story forward? What purpose does it have in the story, and in the drama or comedy? If you can’t answer either question, then does it need to be there?

Scenes show the conflicts and tensions, dilemmas and decisions, actions and reactions, of the characters driving your story. But they aren’t only about what can be shown explicitly. Great scriptwriting has subtext – things going on, things playing out, silent conversations being had, that exist below the surface and beyond what is being ‘said’.

Ask yourself these questions of every scene you plan to write:

1. What effect does this scene have on the character within the moment?

2. What effect does it have on the subsequent events of the story?

3. What impact does it have on the world of the story?

4. What else is going on below the surface and beyond the text?

Scenes aren’t just about themselves in isolation. Juxtaposition is crucial. Where it is placed in a sequence of events can define what a scene does and means, and how well it works. So what comes before? What comes after? Do they have a related effect on a sequence of events? If not, do they have an effect on how the audience sees and makes sense of the events?

Different kinds of scenes can come at different points in the story – if all your scenes look and sound and feel and seem similar, then the story will be dull. Each scene needs a specific and unique purpose in the story. Work that out, and you’ll save a lot of wasted time recapping the story and treading water as you go.

Humpback wales are dying from plastic pollution


MARINE LIFE - This humpback whale is one example of a magnificent animal that is at the mercy of human activity. Humans are for the most part unaware of the harm their fast-lane lifestyles are causing. We aim to change that by doing all we can to promote ocean literacy. The Kulo Luna story is one of our initiatives to promote ocean issues.
