The scope of the story feels grand thus making the overall script feel potentially big and commercial. Jack is setup as an accessible everyman who is pulled into a much larger conspiracy thus the cat and mouse element is very present. Antagonists' motivation is relatively well-defined with Stygg acting as an imposing threat who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Screenwriter shows a strong knack for writing strong action sequences that help drive the narrative forward while the overall writing clearly shows talent to keep the read entertaining.

THE NANO PROTOCOL has elements reminiscent of a 70s style action thriller involving an innocent pulled into a much larger conspiracy. The script certainly has commercial elements including the overall scope which is constantly on the move. While the overall concept does not break new ground, there are certainly areas that can further be developed in order to elevate the material. Screenwriter should certainly be considered for other concepts as well.

The Writer: David Ross

My day job is a copy director in advertising. On the strength of my first script I was signed by Innovative Artists. It went out, lots of meetings, and as I was writing my second script my agent left the business. I then signed with a manager and Preferred Artists Agency and almost got lucky with Disney with that second one. But before my third could go out my wife and I suffered a tragedy and I took a very long hiatus from writing movies. I'm now back and writing my butt off. Go to bio
