Synopsis by Matthew Tobey

Filmmaker Cullen Hoback follows a group of online fantasy gamers as they spend a weekend offline. The Seattle, Washington chapter of the New England Role Playing Organization (NERO) is a group of hardcore World of Warcraft players who take the online gaming experience into the real world with weekend role-playing jaunts. The film chronicles one such weekend, exploring how the participants escape their workaday selves and transform into often antithetical fantastical characters. Monster Camp: The Story of Nero Seattle premiered at the 2007 Cinequest Film Festival, where it was honored with the Audience Award for Best Documentary
