Realm of LARP - Watch Episode 1 NOW!!!

Or: How to make and sell your own TV show.

Today Realm of LARP Premieres on the Nerdist Channel on YouTube.

Realm of LARP is a documentary series that follows the adventures of live action role-players.  I had the idea for the show over a year and a half ago. After pitching it on paper, I was joined by my Co-Executive producer Jason Kanter, who helped me get the resources to go out and shoot a sizzle reel.

When we started planning the move out to the woods it was obvious that better than shooting a sizzle reel, we should just shoot an entire series as long as we are out in the woods. We did just that.

Once we had footage shot and a trailer edited, we began showing it to television execs and encountering the same problem over and over again. A young development executive would take a look and think that it was one of the most innovative things that they had ever seen, Our new found friend would then turn around and show it to their bosses, and as it traveled up the ladder people kept getting older and sometimes out of touch with rising trends.  At one point we had even gotten word back that the head developement guy at a network thought that we had made up the idea of LARPing and couldn't accept the fact that millions of people LARP all over the world.

But when I talked with Chris Hardwick, the decision maker and all around nerd champion, he saw and understood the amount of joy a show like Realm of LARP was actually sharing with the audience.

So thanks Nerdist and to everyone out there who is getting the chance to see it for the first time, I hope you enjoy Realm of LARP.

LARP rules everything around me.

Where have I been?, Why haven't I been  releasing videos every week?  It's because I have been working on a project which I believe is one of the best things I have ever done. It comes out this month and we just released a teaser trailer for it.  Please check it out.

I have been trying to get this made for several years because I truly believe it is something new and interesting that everyone can enjoy.

What do you think of that assessment?
