A full encounter from Tank Larp.
The premise of this is that an APC on its way to action gets ambushed. The team inside have to deal with it
We see a little bit of the crewing setup. Where the APC is ushered into position by a Ref. This is for safety only. The players inside the vehicle have no idea of what is going on. We can vouch both Stu and Rob rode in that same vehicle both were oblivious of the outsidee world once it got moving.
We then follow the action from a fixed camera position. You get to see what happened as if standing in as a ref yourself.
Why this Encounter?
Tank Larp is the first larp that we’ve heard of that manages to integrate armoured vehicles. For Tank Larp these are all Cold War era.
At the point in the game this happened we’d already established quite a bit of footage. But did not yet have an encounter captured in a single fluid take.
That’s something we wanted to do. It leant us the best opportunity to show the management of these impressive vehicles. And how play revolved around them.
