The Way Forward


FADE IN.

EXT. ROAD, CLEAR WATER BAY - DAY

Clear traffic. PETER drives his SMART car swiftly. Entering HKUST, a STAFF (40s) directs him to park at a designated car park. Peter then meets up with GENTLEMAN#1 (30s) who has also parked his car and they chat.

INT. CONFERENCE ROOM, HKUST - DAY

Conference ends. Gentleman#1 approaches PETER and they exchanges WeChat contacts before parting.

PETER (V.O.)

Good. Helping Hong

Kong's bio-tech startups'

IP strategy is what I'd

like to do.

INT. TRAIN CAR - DAY

Phone in hand, Peter reads a mail attachment.

PETER (V.O.)

We met again yesterday.

He was so kind to send

me information about

securitization of cryptocurrency.

If I had the financial

support, I'd like to develop

blockchain-based Fintech

and Regtech in the IP

context.

INT. EXHIBITION AREA, HKCEC - DAY

LADY#1 (40s) greets Peter and they chat.

LADY#1

I'm mentoring a startup,

but we got stuck on the

way forward. What you're

doing should provide insight

to refine the startup's

business model. Would

you help?

Peter nods.

PETER (V.O.)

That motivates me to

complete my strategic

White Paper on Knowhow

to Invest The Future.

GENTLEMAN#2 (50s) intervenes. Peter shakes hands with him and introduces the lady#1 to him.

PETER

Do you do IP valuation

now?

GENTLEMAN#2

Yes, I've a team on that.

Gentleman#2 passes Peter a name card.

PETER

Then, I'll ask people who

need the service now or

in the future to get in touch

with you - the Managing

Director.

GENTLEMAN#2

No problem at all!

They part. Taking a photo of the name card, Peter uses his phone to send an email, attaching the photo.

INT. CONFERENCE HALL, HKCEC - DAY

Hundreds of AUDIENCE. A PANEL of five gentlemen are on stage. Peter sits at the second row. A SPEAKER stands up, and begins to speak freely.

PETER (V.O.)

Our style of delivery is

the same. We've known

each other since 1999.

SPEAKER

As you all have been

sitting here for quite

awhile, why won't

you stand up...

PETER (V.O.)

Well, these're serious

audience...

Peter stands up - the only one - and the SPEAKER sees him.

SPEAKER

Peter is standing up...

The AUDIENCE, including LADY#2 (40s) sitting in front of Peter, give their attention to Peter.

PETER (V.O.)

I come here to support

the organisers and the

speakers. I'm sure I'd

pick up something too.

Peter continues to listen the presentations attentively.

PETER (V.O.)

The biotech IP practice

and the AI TDM stuff

provide information

for me to strategize

on the innovative and

creative way forward.

Later, LADY#2 passes Peter an evaluation form to fill in. Peter ticks the "Excellent" boxes and writes his remarks.

PETER (V.O.)

My comments should

assist the organizer

for next year's program.

Conference ends. Peter returns the evaluation form to Lady#2 before leaving.

EXT. ROAD, WANCHAI - NIGHT.

PETER (V.O.)

I've connected and

learned a lot for the

past few days. I've

mapped out my way

forward and that of

Hong Kong too!

Peter walks inside Tom Lee Music.

INT. TOM LEE MUSIC - NIGHT

Walking around the guitar section, Peter is attracted to a guitar with a colourful top. He picks it up and plays a few fingering tunes.

PETER (V.O.)

It sounds good. More

importantly, I feel

good and alive!

FADE OUT. The End
