Recording LARP

Currently thinking a lot about how we record and preserve LARP - both rules as well as stories that arise from play. 

It's a little bit of a selfish question - currently working out a way to record a LARP I ran with others at an event  (currently thinking a big book with rules, interviews, fiction) - but generally really interested in how we can preserve play that can often leave little trace or impact beyond the players (especially more experimental one shot stuff). 

Any interesting ways you've seen play recorded & shared?

A lot of blockbuster larps have dedicated, diegetic photographers or videographers on site. 

For small events, sometimes you can get away with this (I've written parlor larps with dedicated journalist roles and this works great). Or you can re-stage fun moments after the debrief.
