    So out of curiosity, why are so many of the videos still First membership only? It's been over a month or so right?

      Some videos are first exclusive, forever. For immersion, the only videos that are public are the main runs (the ones with michael and gavin usually), and then they upload an extra run and a behind-the-scenes as first exclusives. It's just incentive to get first for people who want to see more of the same or learn about the productions.

    Shannon Mccormic voiced Ozpin, and Michael Jones voices Sun. Michael shanked Shannon. Sun killed Ozpin!

    I remember hearing Micheal and Gavin killing each other and thinking what the hell is going on cause it happened right behind me. Watching this BTS makes me want to do it all over again cause it was so much fun I hope they do this RTX2017. Also I'm the guy in the orange mask at 2:55

    I didnt even notice that Michael's tattoos were covered up with makeup. That was a cute bit to add into this piece. The attention to detail is amazing.

    I will always watch BTS for the Immersion shoots. I had no idea this is how you herded that many cats by giving them programmed tasks! The thrill of being a lab rat must be immense. Much more now than being hungover and fed turkey at 5am.

    Great episode of Immersion. Sucks I didn't see the sign up early enough to participate during RTX.

    The extras' tasks were a good touch. Shows Blaine and the crew put a lot of thought into it.

    This is so cool! The way the extras were "programmed" was genius. Pretty much a simplified version of how video game NPC's are programmed a lot of the time.

    I loved that Immersion episode (and love all BTS episodes, too). This BTS shows why I found that particular Immersion episode to seem really special.


    I want to see Shannon to be a hero in a live action production (like he was in RT Shorts season 1). I wonder if there's an Immersion where he's the "player".
