Arctic Blue script
Arctic Blue (1993)
Synopsis: An environmentalist gets involved in transporting an accused killer (Ben) from an isolated Alaskan town to the authorities. Ben is determined to escape, and his fellow trappers are ready to help.

Anne Marie stands beside Eric, a Nikon with a telephoto lens

in her hand, holding her breath in anticipation. She's

twenty-three, pretty, with soft features and piercing blue

eyes. She wears Eddie Bauer woman's gear like she was born

in it.

Eric expertly fixes his aim and slowly squeezes the trigger.

But instead of a loud retort, there is only the dull POP of

a CO2-powered dart gun.

NEW ANGLE:

The tranquilizer dart finds its mark in the wolf's fleshy

shoulder. The wolf takes off running, but almost

immediately slows, sits, then lies down.

Eric and Anne Marie hurry over to the wolf, who is breathing

deeply. Eric kneels next to him and strokes his thick fur.

ERIC:

What a beauty.

(to Anne Marie)

Hand me the transmitter.

Anne Marie passes to Eric a tiny, weatherproof homing device

attached to a steel collar band. Eric puts the collar

loosely around the wolf's neck and crimps it in place, all

the while TALKING soothingly to the semi-conscious animal.

Anne Marie smiles at Eric's tenderness and snaps some

photos.

With the collar in place and transmitter activated, Eric

backs away while the wolf tries to rouse itself from its

narcosis.

ERIC:

(continuing)

He's coming around fine.

ANNE MARIE:

Be right back. I left my

camcorder in the car.

FOLLOW ANNE MARIE

as she hurries back to their International Scout. On the

door of the Scout is a stylized logo of an oil derrick,

under which are the words:

NORTHLAND PETROLEUM CORP.

Anne Marie opens the hatchback and grabs a video camera.

ANGLE ON ERIC AND THE WOLF

Eric smiles as the wolf wobbles tentatively to his feet and

trots unsteadily away. Near the treeline the wolf turns,

glances back at Eric and then disappears into the forest.

NEW ANGLE:

Anne Marie is taping the wolf's retreat. Looking through

the viewfinder, she crosses a gully between a pipeline

piling and a rock formation. Eric turns toward her and a

glint of light in the debris at her feet catches his eye.
