I have seen this complete documentary today,
a very interesting insight into the LARP-scene (Live action roleplay) here in Germany.
Really well done...

Unfortunately, only available in German language...




Always be yourself unless you can be a unicorn, then always be a unicorn.

The documentary is about Fantasy and Zombie LARP issues with a focus on Fantasy.
It is especially about 3 persons who like to spend their spare time in this (more or less) hobby.

It is about what they do in real life and what social meaning they do have inside the LARP scene (you can see all of them in the short trailer in my previous posting).

There is a pharmacist with a double doctor title even, who belongs to the organisation team of the largest LARP event in Germany (probably even the world's largest event of this kind). The recent advertising trailer for this event you can see here:

ConQuest 2012


There is a teacher, she is representing one of the most famous characters in the scene...

And another very young guy, who likes most to be one of the anti-heroes on such a giant LARP event, e.g. to be a farmboy selling vegetables in an archaic market place instead of wearing a shining armour pursuing for glory, simply focused to become a hero.

So, what you get to know inside this documentary are several facets of the topic LARP. How the public is thinking about this scene, the motivation of the players and the members of the organisation teams of sometimes even giant events (with 7000 players...), but also impressing insights into these events up to special LARP exhibitions.

I once was also involved in such a documentary about LARP when I was in university (member of the film producing team), but of course, we were not able to do that effort, that this film team is investing in their documentary:
"Die Herren der Spiele"
(equals "The masters of the games").

You can see this documentary in the shape of an internet stream in this library:
Bavarian TV library
You have to enter:
Die Herren der Spiele
into the search editor field.
But, as I already said, it is only available in German language... :undecided:

The first season was a treasure already. :gj:

I am curious to see the second season after getting an insight into this clip:

@Morty I can assure the 2nd season of Game of Thrones is as great as the first one.
