2/5 Update - Less than one week to go!
As the VGHS S2 Kickstarter approaches the end, we wanted to make sure our awesome backers and supporters had a chance to get everything they wanted. To better facilitate that, we're putting together a survey to see what items or things we may have overlooked. Help us out by filling out this quick form to let us know what we should add!
We have a slew of very exciting announcements and updates. We'll kick it off with:
Executive and Co-Producers!
Meet our very generous Executive Producer - The Peregrine Gaming Glove and Co-Producer Prometheus Lights! Both these companies donated generously to the campaign and happen to have some very cool products that fit perfectly into the world of VGHS!
The Peregrine Gaming Glove (Executive Producer)
The Peregrine is basically the Nintendo Power Glove on steroids - it's a gaming glove which is controlled by touching points on your fingers with your thumb, allowing you to input 30 different combinations.
It also happens to be perfect for some scenes we have showcasing the Real Time Strategy Team and for a one-on-one fighting game showdown!
The Peregrine is also going to be showing up this summer as the control interface in Guillermo Del Toro's Neon Gene- I mean, Pacific Rim!

Prometheus Lights (Co-Producer)
Prometheus Lights is actually Jason Hui - a one-man company based in California that custom makes awesome super bright LED flashlights.
We needed a flashlight for a couple different scenes - one where Ted sneakily breaks into the teacher's lounge, and for a number of action scenes that have weapon mounted flashlights, and we needed some customization so Prometheus Lights work perfectly!
Our director of photography Jon Salmon is working closely with Jason to fine tune the color temperature, lumen output, and beam throw of the lights (something we could never do with any other flashlight) for these scenes to make sure the look of the flashlights in each scene is perfect.

Team Logos and Graphics
This season of VGHS takes us outside the walls of the school and out into the world of school competition. Naturally, we needed to design some logos for the rival schools. Here's some are some of the teams you'll encounter this season, courtesy our graphics guys The Dangerbrain!
That's all for now - the next update we'll be showing off the latest set photos as well as the new camera we're using for Season Two...
Stay tuned and thanks for your support!
