I can’t be the only one to watch this short trailer and snigger as the characters behave predictably like… well… like a bunch of LARPers! They always say that you have to be able to laugh at yourself and this web series looks like it’s going to be a prime example of putting the theory into action.
Too often LARP is mocked by the media or those just looking to pick on someone they perceive as more eccentric than themselves, but this sitcom appears to use those tropes jovially in order to make something that we can laugh along with, rather than feel we’re being laughed at.
I think a recognise a few of my friends in the character list here on their info page… but alas I seem to have been saved by the fact that there is no bumbling photographer appearing in their cast. Yet.
The pilot episode is due to come out in May this year, lets hope it gets picked up by one of the big production companies so that LARP can well and truly go mainstream.
