‘Video Game High School’ Season 3 Debuts…with Better Sound
“Video Game High School” has teamed up with Dolby Laboratories for its third (and final) season online, which debuts today.
The show, created by Freddie Wong and Matt Arnold, has gained plenty of success thanks to Kickstarter and Indiegogo crowdfunding campaigns. Now, Dolby’s jumping in for the series’ last hurrah to bring higher sound quality before it says goodbye to fans.
Dolby worked on sound design for the final season of “VGHS” to ensure that the audio remained in keeping with the series top-notch visual effects. This means 5.1 surround-sound for the series, the same level used for TV shows and at movie theaters.
“Made-for-digital content is sitting alongside more traditional media,” Dolby Institute director, Glenn Kiser, explained, “and for certain genres — such as action, sci-fi, and horror, where audio is such a crucial storytelling device — it’s critical that creators meet the audience’s heightened expectations concerning quality.”
As far as digital video is concerned, Dolby has also worked with YouTuber and director/producer, Michael Gallagher.
Collective Digital Studios and Rocket Jump Studios produce “VGHS,” which picked up three awards at the 2014 Streamys, one of which was for best action/sci-fi series. Expect special guests in the third and last season, such as Conan O’Brien. You can watch season three now on RocketJump’s YouTube channel.
