Project Displacement is the code name for a fantasy story in development inspired by the testimonies of refugees around the world. I’m Ernesto Aragon and I’m an entrepreneur, author, and technical artist. My passion is to use creativity within the entertainment industry to help us think about why we’re here and what our mission is. I’m currently working on two branches of the project; a fantasy novel with an in-depth storyline and a video game. The fantasy RPG video game I’m working on is inspired by the ongoing refugee crisis in the Middle East and in other parts of the world.

In my latest teaser short film, “Displacement,” Nadír ™, shares how he became a refugee while escaping from political persecution. Check out my online character showcase at the link below to see how I created Nadír from scratch. You’ll also get a behind the scenes look at Project Displacement.
