Rewrite & Reroll

A group of Singapore-based students from NTU’s Wee Kim Wee School of Communications have been busy these past months putting together a short documentary focusing on D&D in Singapore. It’s finally out! The documentary is truly a labour of love on a topic that’s clearly compelling to many. (It’s a pleasure seeing so many familiar faces in it, too!)

In their words:

This documentary follows our filmmaking journey into the local scene of the hit tabletop roleplaying game, Dungeons & Dragons (D&D). From understanding its origins and significance for Singaporean D&D players, we explore if such a euro-centric medium could be modelled into something familiar for Asian players. Through special interviews with professional dungeon masters and renowned writers in the creative gaming scene, we learn about the efforts taken and the obstacles faced to challenge a euro-centric genre and establish a new foundation for new Dungeons & Dragons’ stories ahead, and maybe even, the genre of fantasy as a whole.
