Pieces: Out of the Dark
“Pieces,” is an allegorical tale taking place in 1986, with all the pomp of the decade. It is told in episodic form as a web series. The story features a nine year old vampire, symbolically embodying the idea of one with stunted emotional growth, assuming absolute power; power without empathy. This character exploits those who have suffered recent traumas, and further takes advantage of those who are openly empathetic.
The inception of this project was rooted in an examination of modern politics, online social media polarization, and selective fact consumption. But once this doorway was opened into the characters and world, the characters take on a life of their own.
