Two rival LARP (Live Action Role Play) societies clash in a petty feud to keep their spot in Greenwich Park. However just as it seems the battle is decided, things take a mysterious turn...

When two rival LARP societies clash over their shared training area in Greenwich Park it is decided enough is enough. This park is only big enough for one of them. The solution? an all or nothing quest to retrieve a "magical orb". It really is just a normal day in Greenwich Park.

However, just as the battle is drawing to a close, event's take a mysterious turn for our LARPers. Is it enough to bring them both together?

The Battle of Greenwich is a comedy mockumentary inspired heavily by similar comedies such as The Office, Parks and Recreation, and What We Do in The Shadows. It focuses on interesting characters in unusual situations in which plenty of quick witted hijinks ensue, all while filmed down the lens of a documentary crew.

Mockumentary is a genre that is under-represented in film despite being exceedingly popular, and some of the best comedy on screen, whenever it's made.
LARPing is a relatively unknown past time, which features many conventions which to outsiders can looks strange and hilarious.

By joining together the best form of screen comedy with a hobby which naturally contains many comedic conventions, this is an obvious recipe for hilarity, while raising awareness of LARPing as a hobby and accurately representing it.

Our goal is to raise £6000 so that we can give this film everything it deserves to be brought to life. This includes:

  • Professional, industry standard camera, sound and lighting equipment.
  • High quality props and costumes for our fantastical characters.
  • Music and VFX to add just that extra level of quality.
  • The festival run, so our film can be shown to the world!
  • Everything we need to keep the production COVID safe. Yes, it's still out there.

We are aware that this is a tight budget, but we are an experienced team who have had to work with less. Reaching our goal of £6000 will bring our film to a whole extra level over what any of us have made before, and we need your help to get it there.
