I’ve received a request from a student at the University of Westminster who has discovered LARP and is looking into the prospect of making a documentary about LARP as part of a 3rd year project. The request is help her get in touch with people who truly understand LARP.
The particular topics of interest are
- The history of LARP
- Genres Played
- The Culture of LARP
These are pretty big questions – LARP is somewhat sprawling and complex. I decided that my best option was to create a mechanism to help interested LARPers get in touch. If you would like to converse about LARP – please use the contact form on this page to start a conversation.
One thing that does impress is that there is a plan here to do good research before planning the film. I applaud this as it shows respect for a culture that many outside of LARP find difficult to understand.
