If you’re into content of the web variety, then you no doubt already know RocketJump studio. They’re the guys responsible for bringing us the action-packed, uproarious Video Game High School (so popular that it’s on Netflix). The team are now releasing a new series exclusively on Hulu, called RocketJump: The Show. The show’s eight episodes will chronicle the behind-the-scenes making of their best short films, and we’re talking the most ambitious, daring, and exciting stuff they’ve ever attempted in their careers.
In the trailer above, you can see that it takes one heck of a dedicated village to make a low-budget film, even if it’s short. A quick word of warning: you might come across an exploding violin blaster (naturally) and the odd lightsaber battle or karate kick, but a friendly cowboy will serve and protect! And then there’s those nifty green screen effects and giant crane shots to stretch your wildest imagination. It’s true; this lot do it all, with every blood dollop, sweat dribble, and teardrop thrown into the soup. By the looks of it, though, they’re having a grand old time–making films and making friends.
To give this deal an even sweeter cherry on top, the short films themselves will appear on RocketJump soon after the episodes air, so you can see how everything came together in the editing room.
December 2 is the day, people! Prepare yourselves.
