The Writer: Scott Nelson

Award-winning writer of features and shorts. Work is sometimes a bit edgy and often has a twist. I believe that good screenplays make us deal with hard issues, and change us for the better. I am looking for vehicles to connect with other writers and producers. Currently working as a technology analyst, so I especially like looking at the impact technology has on society. Also interested in general in using stories to talk about issues with Society, and helping to effect positive change. Also willing to discuss turning any of these shorts into features. If interested, let me know. Heavily influenced by Rod Serling, Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison, and Phillip K. Dick. Currently, I have forty-... Go to bio
