Until Covet, I had never written a sci-fi or allegory... so I tried both at the same time! My personal background as a Christian came into this story as I wanted the different enviroments to clearly represent the choices we make in our lives.

 

Originally, I wrote a script about three kids solving a murder. As they each discovered a clue, they only became more suspicious towards one another. Eventually, the murder turned into a box, and then I added heaven, hell, an iPad, it got a little crazy haha!

 

Watch and see how three teenagers escape from the room, the box, and one another.
