Created by the popular (and immensely talented) digital director FreddieW, VGHS started as a kickstarter campaign where Freddie asked fans and video game enthusiasts to pitch in $75,000 so that he could make this series. Supporters blew Freddie’s modest goal out of the water and helped him raise over a quarter million dollars.
I mean why wouldn’t you want to pitch in some money to watch your favorite YouTuber make a series that sounds awesome? It’s about a school where students live video games (insert drama here)! VGHS is also jam packed with cameos from online and TV celebrities including Harley from Epic Meal Time, Zackery Levi from Chuck, and iJustine).
So tune in for VGHS’s first run on RocketJump. It’s also being released to Freddie’s channel on YouTube on a week delay. The pilot (above) sets the stage for the series. Episode two is expected to release this afternoon.
