    I've got several resolutions for 2018, but one of them is to finish making Season 3 of my sci-fi series. Transitioning it from machinima to animation is taking a lot of work, but toward the end of the year when I realized that 2017 came and went without a single episode being made, I knew it was time to get back at it and finally finish it up.


    Question for your AMA: if you were just starting out and had no friends who were interested in video production, where would you go to meet people to work on projects with you?

    Just because you are ending the vlog doesn't mean you can't still walk around with a camera and ask questions. Content is content even if it doesn't come out right away.

    A goal for myself this year is to invest time in learning something. I've always had this desire to learn different skills and subjects, so I'm making Geology the goal for this year. May not get a master's in it, but just learn as much as I'm comfortable with for myself.

    So here's my AMA question for you Burnie: What's something you'd like to learn, or a skill/subject you'd like to have better knowledge to?

    I really enjoyed watching the vlogs through the tail end of 2016 and into 2017, and i'm really going to miss them. I'm really looking forward to the Ellie Does Wacky Shit spin off!

    To what extent do you feel pressure (as an individual and as a company) from your fan-base to represent prevailing societal norms? And what happens if you or someone else in the company doesn't agree? i.e. political policy, direction of social change etc.

    Overall I have three resolutions:

    1) Make more things. I've been interested in cosplay/maker movement for a while now and now I want to start actually working on projects rather than just thanking about it.

    2) Improving heath and fitness by going to the gym more often and eating a healthier diet.

    3) Applying to graduate school.

    AMA: How does it feel to be such an inspiration for many kids and young adults and has the community effected you as much as you effected us.. Through the vlogs and podcasts I have learned many things, as have many of my friends. In times when many of us were or felt alone we had you and the other members of roosterteeth to learn from and get too know. 


    I dont want my story to get in the way of the question but I still thought I would tell it.. Growing up I always planned on a normal career.. being an engineer or something.. but as I grew up I kinda knew I could never enjoy that.. watching roosterteeth gave me insight into the fact that there are other careers out there.. and is one of the big influences in my now moving into a career I love.. guiding long backpacking, kayaking, and sailing trips.. Its so far from what you do yes but with out the things I learned here I never would have known too look.. Im starting my schooling to be a paramedic and doing courses on guiding through nols.. My life has really turned around from a lost teen to new happy young adult.. the community and the things I learned from here are probably what saved me.. I regret not getting to go to RTX but plan on it once im 21.. and still hold that time I met Gavin and Gus at pax as one of my favorite memories.. I really dont know what I would do with out this community and content. Thank you.. and burnie if you read this you especially have made a difference in my life as did monty and miles.. you three are what I hope to become.. smart, creative, hard working people..

    @burnie For your AMA, I remembering hearing in a old school Drunk Tank podcast that you aren't a fan of sliced tomatoes. Are you still not a fan? Where did the malice come from? (I hate them as well)

    You've put out some fantastic vlogs, and you're always entertaining to watch. Cheers to 2018!!

     Hi Burnie, Here is the question,  As the state of YouTube is currently not in great shape, what are the plans for posting content if it all goes to shit? I know there is this website, but will everyone happily move over to a new platform? Also i'm about to do a massive move from the UK to Dallas currently in the middle of high school so if anybody reading this wants to follow me on my journey I will be posting on my page as the adventures begin :) 


    Just some friendly thought and I hope everyone has a great 2018 (I WILL GET RIPPED THIS YEAR)

    Interestingly enough, I actually have a resolution this year and it is in part thanks to RT. 

    As the result of a small joke between me and my friend about RWBY and RvB, I delved into the world of writing. What started as me writing simple fanfiction has evolved into me falling in love with every aspect of writing. At the suggestion of all my friends and dozens of family members I changed my major and am now working on some original stories that have been taking up 80% of my time thanks to how much I love the ideas I've come up with. 


    My resolution is to continue improving my skills at writing with the hopes of making any of my stories good enough to be printed. And honestly, this isn't just a New Year's Resolution for me. I know it's going to take all my time and effort to make happen, and it might not happen within this year. But I want to make it happen no matter how long it takes.

    My resolution is to sleep and exercise more, and stop worrying about my apartment's parking space not being free when I get back from the gym each night.


    Also, @burnie: How do you manage to have great relationships with your two kids in school for instance, while still working on all the projects you have to oversee and create at RT? I'm sure you've found a great work/family/life balance that suits you well in particular, but what are the things for you personally that you have to make time for in your busy schedule in order to keep up with all your obligations and relationships with people?

    Congrats on a successful year of vlogging!


    Will Rooster Teeth (in time) make its way to the North Eastern region in the United States and setup a new building (similar to how Funhaus is over in L.A) and expand? Is there actual potential in making such a move from a financial perspective? I can understand if it’s a risky move considering the property taxes can be rather steep (i.e. New Jersey or New York) compared to what you and the company pay for in Texas.


    Either way, love the content and keep up the amazing work!

    My new year's resolution is to be happier. Smaller ones are to get more involved with RT Community, play guitar more, finally start streaming to raise $ for charity, and the age old get into shape resolution.


    As always, thanks for the vlogs Burnie, these have been awesome.

    Resolution: I used to say my resolution is 'not to make resolutions, they just become frustration and disappointment' ...  but that stopped being helpful. So, my resolution for 2018 is: 'do 2 loads of laundry every Monday'. Simple, to the point, but it's structure that's gonna help me do what I need to do.


    Question for AMA: RT feels a lot unlike other media outposts, at least as a fan. What do you think are either the most interesting, or least appreciated things that make it feel different to other companies?

    Not a huge resolution, but it kind of is. Not sure how I will achieve but I want to be less depressed by the end of the year, and I want to finally work up the courage to seek professional help because the thought of it scares me. Will miss these blogs a lot and I think it might be a cool idea if maybe the vlog gets passed on to maybe someone else (?) or maybe it gets passed around the company for certain periods of time.

    @burnie question for your AMA: Rooster Teeth has seen some fantastic growth in the last 5+ years, and it has been phenomenal to watch the company expand and be able to achieve so many amazing feats.  At the same time, however, we have seen the company hit roadblocks and run into issues, the store this christmas for instance.  Has there ever been a point where you've felt like the company has grown too fast, or has grown/moved away from the principles that made the company so successful in the initial 10 years of Rooster Teeth? Simplified, have you ever felt Rooster Teeth's growth has been a negative instead of a positive?

    For AMA: Like most community members Rooster Teeth has helped me through some tough times. My question is at what point did you realize that the company you were building was doing more than just producing funny online videos? What was your first indication that you were having an actual emotionally positive effect on people's day to day lives?

    Rather than make any resolutions this year, I made myself a promise list. Pretty much the same thing only it's a bit more raw than I'm used to. 


    Actually, I posted the list in a blog on my account here at RT cos I want to try my hand at blogging and content creation - so I guess that lol

    What is a gross habit or thing that you do? Personally, I bite my toenails. I know it's gross but I have a weird fear of nail clippers.

      It's not a weird fear! When I was younger, I would never let my mum 'cut' my nails but I would let my aunt 'trim' my nails. After my aunt died I bit or picked at my nails until I learnt how to trim my own, as I had no one who would TRIM them for me.


      My fear was training based, I still can't let anyone near my nails, but I can use scissors (both hands) or clippers (all nails) to trim them myself
