Magic, Miniatures & Make-believe is a documentary short film about the continuing popularity of tabletop gaming. It features Wayne Mittlestead, owner of Dueling Grounds (dueling-grounds.com) in Toronto.
While role-playing, collectible card and miniature games may not be as well-known as traditional board games, they are all immersive in a way that traditional board games will never be. They each foster a community of dedicated players who enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded friends as much as the games themselves.
My thanks to Wayne, the staff at Dueling Grounds and all the gamers who allowed me a brief glimpse into their world. A world built on friendship, community and more than a little competitive spirit.
Filmed with the Sony A7s, Canon 24-105, 100mm F2.8 Macro
