EPISODE 6
Official Description: BrianD had his first real defeat last episode. No party invites, or cool dance moves to overcome the raw embarrassment of being completely slaughtered by VGHS’s #1 player, The Law. He’s got a tough day ahead of him, and someone is going to try to push Brian over the edge. Brian has had just about enough of VGHS after the disastrous JV/Varsity Scrimmage.

Have you been watching? What do you think of the series? Which is your favorite episode?

Earlier today, PJFlip over at 141tv was kind enough to point out a new (and very creative webseries) to us; Video Game High School. The official concept behind the series:

About Video Game High School: It’s the near future: You’re dead. Your kids are probably dead. Your grandkids (if they’re alive) are playing video games. Why? Because professional gaming is the biggest sport on earth.

Around the world, millions of players duke it out in fighters, RTS’s, First Person Shooters and more. To the victors go the spoils: glory, clan contracts and million dollar endorsements. The best young gamers are recruited by elite boarding schools to sharpen their skills. The best of the best go to VGHS: VIDEO GAME HIGH SCHOOL.

VGHS is a feature-length action/comedy web series (9 episodes, ~10 mins per episode) about best friends, first loves, and landing that perfect head shot. It follows Brian, a young FPS player stuck in a town where he doesn’t belong. His fortunes change when he scores a massive kill against the world’s top amateur player: VGHS senior “The Law.”

Brian rockets into the national spotlight and lands an invite into the hallowed halls of VGHS. There his skills will be tested as he fights to fit in with the most talented gamers alive. Along the way he’ll make unlikely friends, fall in love with no-nonsense FPS hot shot, Jenny Matrix, and face powerful enemies – namely The Law, who vows to destroy Brian for good.

Will Brian’s dreams end before they’ve even started? Or will he pull it together and become the gamer he was born to be?

The first three episodes of Video Game High School have gone online and can be watched for free.

Watch Video Game High School (VGHS) episode 1: “Welcome to the world of Video Game High School”

Watch Video Game High School (VGHS) episode 2: “Brian D gets a little more than he bargained for on his first day…”

Watch Video Game High School (VGHS) episode 3: “Welcome to FPS 101. My name is Ace. You can call me Ace. With Zachary Levi as Ace.”

Check out the series and than come back to talk about it!

As every independent filmmaker knows, making films is a lot more than shooting and cutting your movie together. You have to go the extra mile to get your work out there so people can see it. Here are a few free online services and tools that can help you get the word out, edit your images, and spice up your website.

Photobucket is one of my favorite sites on the web. You can store both photos and videos, make scrapbooks and slideshows and best of all, you can post your pictures all around the web (forums, social networks, share with friends). In addition to hosting your photos, it has an online editor that lets you change its size, add text/borders, and do touch ups. If you haven’t signed up for Photobucket yet, I have to ask why?

Favicons are the little icons that appear next to the web address on the address bar. They also appear in your bookmarks, your tabs and your history. The Favicon Generator makes it easy to create and add your icon to your page. I used it for my favicon on this website. To make your favicon just follow the directions on their site; upload a picture and click ‘Make Favicon!’ to create a favicon for your website. This favicon generator supports alpha transparency. Once you create your favicon.ico file, upload it to the root directory of your website and put the following code in your html page in the header.

If you don’t have the coin to buy Adobe Photoshop, than I highly recommend that you download GiMP. The download will not cost you a cent, and GiMP is a free GNU Image Manipulate Program that can be used for such tasks as photo retouching, image format converting, image rendering, or you can use it as an online batch processing system or a simple paint program. The free software was built to be expandable and extensible and was designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions that can do just about anything. It works with both PCs and Macs.
