As a Larper I get the opportunity to live my fantasies. Novels, films, and video games all become reality with a few costume changes and a little imagination. Live Action Role Play takes us to a place we often only dream of. In recent years, several movies, including documentaries, comedies and even horror films have shed light on Live Action Role Play and its community. While it’s exciting to see the Larping subculture moving into the limelight, I suspect I’m not the only person who believes these films have consistently failed to communicate the true experience of Larping.

However, there is hope. Starting production this summer is LARP, an adventure/comedy film that aims to pay homage to Larpers and explore its true nature. With a heavy focus on the art of roleplaying, the cast and crew have dedicated their time and efforts to learn what Larping is, how it feels and why it’s such a popular pastime. The story aims to bring the audience into the world of Larping rather than make them laugh at the Larper’s expense. LARP is a film that Larpers can trust will advocate for the beauty in Live Action Role Play. 

For the past four years the producers have been developing the world of the script and communicating their ideas through concept art. Writers Nicholas Dunn and Ehren Remal show the audience not only the outside perspective portrayed in other films, but also how a Larper’s imagination can take a foam sword and turn it to steel. The goal is to immerse the audience in the film the same way we as Larpers immerse ourselves in the story. Illustrations from artists Rufus ZaeJoDaeus and Colby Dunn have outlined each character and their corresponding PC’s. (Player Characters) The film’s costumes have been individually designed based on the actors playing them. Characters we play at LARP are a part of us and that will be the same for the characters in the film. We spend hours writing character histories, days sewing costumes, and weeks crafting weapons. This dedication will be echoed for the characters and PC’s in the finished film.

The cast and crew of LARP are also unique because of their respect for the LARP community. Some of the cast are Larpers, and many of the crew have attended LARP events to better understand the world they were creating. The writers have even developed a rulebook for their in-film game similar to the ones seen at LARP events. To further the experience, the film creators have sourced props and weapons from actual LARP companies, so we will see both the nostalgic boffer weapons and many of our favorite creations that we know and love. All of the logistics aside, this film is a film that we as Larpers have been waiting for to portray our beloved hobby.

In other films, LARPers have been made fun of, looked down on, and portrayed as subculture of nerds. Although many Larpers embrace that title, the truth is that the LARP community is very diverse. From the girls at the comic book store to the guys on the football field, Larpers can be found almost anywhere. LARP shows Live Action Role Play in full circle. The film takes the audience on a journey of what it’s like to be a new Larper and also how veterans interact in the atmosphere of the immersion. LARP has dedicated itself to advocating for Larpers, not shaming them.

But LARP is not just a film for a niche audience; non-Larpers will enjoy it as well. This movie shows the audience what’s inside the character’s imagination and encourages them to imagine as well. The challenges faced by the characters are common to everyone and the film shows that sometimes it takes a little creativity to make the best of the situation. Furthermore it shows that we can have fun if we abandon our reservations and give something we’ve never tried before a chance. Both Larpers and Non-Larpers will be inspired to try something new, and to stick with what inspires them. LARP is the film Larpers have been waiting for to show the world who we are and what we do as artists, adventurers and dreamers.
