        Brett Howard Nelson is a multi-award-winning screenwriter with 75+ Official Selections with 48+ wins from film festivals around the world.
        He has a diverse artistic background in photography, graphic design, and creative writing. Brett began screenwriting in the late 90s after his transition from acting. Not long after, he attained management with his first feature screenplay, "The Black Dahlia Mystery," a haunting, mysterious whodunit tale about Beth Short and her infamous 1947 murder. In the early 2000s, his scripts received "first look" reads with MGM Studios.
        After a 17-year break from the Hollywood industry, Brett returned to his long, lost passion for screenwriting in early 2021, which lead to an unexpected, unplanned, successful run on the summer 2021 film festival circuit with several short and feature screenplays. And his success continues with a summer 2022 film fest run with new feature work.
        Brett is a native of Seattle, Washington, and currently resides in the Seattle area. At this time, he is seeking reputable management and agent representation for his current and upcoming feature-length screenplays.
