Elves and wizards go to work: a day in the life of online role-playing devotees

Many consider video games as mere escapism, but for a dedicated group of online role-playing gamers, virtual reality can merge with daily life in surprising and enlightening ways. As these gamers walk to work, or wait on line at the supermarket, they carry with them the fantastical creatures and mythological worlds of their video-game lives. In Avatar Days, this blending of worlds is made literal: using advanced 3D technologies and motion-capture animation, the film brings players’ in-game characters to life.

Director: Gavin Kelly

Producer: Dave Burke
