Once a month we'll be bringing you a look at some of the best local Kickstarter campaigns in order to let you know what's getting ready to be unleashed through the help of small investors.
Larpe Diem: Have you ever seen Darkon, the documentary someone made about foam sword fighting, live action RPGs? It's awesome. If they had that every Monday like football I would crash my car in order to get home on time to watch it.
Coming to us from the Fat Kids on the Block film crew, this is a similar film, except this time it's fictional. An average man named James is dragged by a friend to an underground LARP event where it turns out he is a naturally gifted foam weapons expert. Soon, he is an sensation in the LARP underworld, but success always makes you enemies.
Seriously, this is Kickboxer for the nerd crowd and I want it made yesterday. The only downside is that it's $75 to get a copy of the film (And a digital at that). Seems like a bit of a rip-off, but if they're angling for a theatrical release I can understand.
Goal: $7,500 by August 6More »
