Catch the first episode of Video Game High School


9:00 PM on 05.13.2012



Subscribers to the FreddieW YouTube channel might have heard mention of a massive movie / web series project underway called Video Game High School. Produced by Rocket Jump, a coalition founded by Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch of FreddieW, Matt Arnold, and Desmond Dolly, Video Game High School promised to be a culmination of all the team's individual talents and expertise over the years.

After much hype, the very first episode has launched. Split into nine parts, the full film is two hours long and follows the journey of BrianD, an amateur FPS player who gets invited to the prestigious Video Game High School after taking out the best gamer on the planet during a match. Over the course of the series, we'll see a bunch of special effects wizardry, a goofy bully who wears paper 3D glasses like Zeke from Zombies Ate My Neighbors, and a hard-ass principal played by Epic Meal Time's Harley Morenstein.

One episode in, it's clear that the story of VGHS is littered with plenty of the same cliches we've seen in Hollywood interpretations of gamer culture. Still, knowing the talent behind the show, I'm sure we'll be pleasantly surprised as the show progresses.
