Second Season of 'Video Game High School' Begins Mid-July - VideoInk

Second Season of ‘Video Game High School’ Set for Mid-July

/ May 30, 2013

Collective Digital Studios and Rocket Jump Studios plan to premiere the second season of “Video Game High School,” an action/comedy series created by Freddie Wong and Matt Arnold, during San Diego Comic-Con in mid-July.

Set in an alternate reality where video gaming is the world’s biggest spectator sport, the series follows a group of students an “elite competitive gaming academy” as they try to restore the reputation of their embattled, scandal-ridden school.

It’s already been an incredibly successful franchise for Collective Digital Studios, as the first season grabbed over 55 million views across nine episodes and an array of behind-the-scenes content.

The second season, which is backed in part by a Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $800,000, will be available on RocketJump.com and YouTube. It will encompass six TV-length episodes for a total running time of 120 minutes (pure speculation here, and we will update based on what we hear back from CDS, but this seems to position “VGHS” well for other forms of distribution — something which CDS isn’t exactly a stranger to).

In an effort to up the level of video quality, the second season was apparently shot in mixed-frame rate. Those who watch the show on RocketJump.com will be able to see all of the video game action sequences in 48 frames-per-second, the format Peter Jackson recently used for “The Hobbit.” Other parts of the season will be available in the traditional 24fps format.

Automaker Dodge has signed on as a presenting sponsor for the coming season. The Dodge Dart will be integrated into the storyline during the show’s drift racing sequences.
