Description: "Monster Camp" is a rare and fascinating glimpse into the world of live-action role playing ("LARPing"). In this award-winning documentary, gamer stereotypes are simultaneously shattered and confirmed. For 48 consecutive hours--there are no breaks, not even for sleep--immerse yourself in a world completely unlike our own. A world built upon fantasy, chivalry, and imagination; a place where you can be anything, dress however, have almost any power. A world where software engineers, department store managers, and high school students live as warriors, sorcerers, and villains. It's a place that lets you transform yourself, perhaps becoming the person you wish you really were. Welcome to "Monster Camp", the true story of NERO Seattle, one of more than 60 LARPing franchises with thousands upon thousands of members (belonging to either NERO International or Alliance LARP) in North America.
