A rare and fascinating glimpse into the world of live-action role playing, known as LARPing, where people act out the real-life version of the videogame phenomenon, "World of Warcraft." ?This is the true story of NERO Seattle, one of over 60 LARPing franchises with thousands of members in North America.
Venturing bravely into the fantastical world of live action role playing, MONSTER CAMP director Cullen Hoback gets to know the colorful people who dedicate their weekends to costumes, masks, and make-believe. When the participants (often fans of online role-playing games such as WORLD OF WARCRAFT) gather together, they trade in their day-to-day identities for magical monikers, building--if only for a few days--a "real-life" fantasy realm where anything is possible.

MONSTER CAMP is a rare and fascinating glimpse into the world of live-action role playing, known as LARPing, as people act out the real-life version of the videogame phenomenon, "World of Warcraft." In this award-winning documentary, gamer stereotypes are simultaneously shattered and confirmed. 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, and have almost any power. This is the true story of NERO Seattle, one of over 60 LARPing franchises with thousands of members in North America.
