Some friends of mine - Ole Peder GiŠver and Martin Bull Gudmundsen - have written an RPG called "Itras By". It's in Norwegian, so it's probably not very accessible to most people here - but what's interesting is that they've made a teaser video for the game. This is pretty common in Nordic LARP circles, but I don't think many RPGs have done this before.

You can see the teaser here.

That's a really interesting and creepy video, made more so by the fact that I don't understand any of the voice-over.  Warning to others: there is some NSFE (Not Safe For Eyeballs) mess in the middle.

We did something similar for the Shab-al-Hiri Roach, which I think works well as a no-budget trailer for the game.  I'd love to see more of this sort of thing-  it's a great way to get across the tone and theme of a game, without getting into the details just yet (that's what demos are for).

The guys at 12 to Midnight recently made a couple of videos for their Steamworks product:

Any info on how it was made?
It looks like a lot of old stock footage, but it's a lot better than what I've been seeing online.

A lot of the old footage is from Un Chien Andalous (or however it's spelled), an old surrealist movie. The rest, I don't know...

Really nice!

Some footage is from La CitÚ des enfants perdus (also quite surrealist). Aren't there any risks with copyright?

I'd be very interested in reading an AP of Itras by, Matthijs!
