Hi guys,

My name is Laurence, and I'm a student from the London Film School. I'm currently making a short film, 'Trivia' in mid-May that centres around a board games collector.

As part of the project we have created our own board game, 'Omoshiroi' - a fictional Japanese crossover game that has been carelessly marketed for an English version.

We're looking to borrow board games for four days to use on set as in the collection of the main characters games room. I was wondering if anyone would want to lend some games as part of the collection? Contributors would be fully credited and invited to the opening screening. We're hoping to submit to festivals both in the UK and abroad, so it should be a fun project to get involved with.

If you are interested please let me know, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Laurence

I find my games get soggy if I leave them in the bath.

Ah, yes, but it washes the mould right off.

Not sure I could bear the thought of having to put the games back on the shelves afterwards and then shipping them and potential damage and not being able to play the one I want to for a few days.

Laurence, when the film is complete, will we be able to watch it online?

You can post youtube or vimeo links directly into posts here.

Cheers,
Jon.

Hi Jon,

Yes, the school should publish all films in an online format. If the film is chosen to go to specific festivals they may want to have an exclusive premiere but that means I can give you all a password-encoded link to the file so it doesn't count as publicly publishing the film.

Kind regards,

Laurence

Hi Lawrence, where will the shooting be taking place? I suspect proximity will help as I can't see someone shipping games for this.

Agrred - I could potentially help out, depending on logistics, but I'm not shipping the games.

Hi All,

The filming would be taking place in Covent Garden most likely between the 23rd and 26th of May. We are able to collect from the greater London area. We would keep all games sealed and ownership would be labelled to ensure no mix-ups occur.

Kind regards,

Laurence

I take it that you are not in a position to move things to the Midlands as UK Games Expo is taking place that weekend in the NEC Metropole hotel. You would have access to hundreds of games, players, etc.

Just a thought.
