    Loved this vlog. Answered some of my questions, and it's especially good to hear that everything with RWBY and the core team is going well. :) Keep doing what you guys do! I love it. <3

    Matt is the RT equivalent of cowbell, we simply need more of him. Is cloning him out of the question?


    PS Thanks for taking the time to do this video.

    I'm disheartened to see members of the community shoot down anyone trying to help with the controversy. Issues aren't fixed by ignoring them. That doesn't mean anyone is a bad person. I thought this was supposed to be a family.

      You are foolish if you think the RT community is a family. Even more so if you think they can handle any kind of constructive criticism or negative feedback. Any time I bring up something RT did poorly (lazer team, the handling of RWBY after Monte's death, etc) you WILL get negatively voted on this site. Don't get discouraged tho. I consider it a badge of honor when I am one of the few getting negative feedback for providing an actually honest oppinion instead of throwing out compliments when its entirely undeserved.

      Here we go. Another person acting like they knew Monty personally. Matt and Burnie knew Monty better than Shane and a MILLION times better than you. You have NO right to call Roosterteeth wrong when it comes to Monty, RWBY, or Shane!

      They're not gonna. As long as someone is a part of the company, they can't say anything without bad backlash, or the risk of being sued. They've said before that if anything like this ever happened, They'd have to ignore it until it blew over. Besides, half that letter was complete BS. "Only I and Sheena know RWBY. no other single person knows anything. Monty never spent any time with anyone except the two of us (not even Miles and Kerry)." Honestly, IMO, that letter was creepy. It read to me- and a few other's I've talked with- That Shane is just pissed that he didn't 1) take over as the new Monty, and 2) Didn't literally become Monty himself.

      They are taking the cowards way out. I find it funny because in a recent podcast Burnie said, "Do you think we have done anything to cause outrage" in a joking manner. The RT of old is dead, welcome to the new money hungry RT where the people are walking money bags and the employees don't matter.

    Are there any plans for moving away from Flash on the RT site?

    • WeatherManNX01 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Lightningstruck

      8 months ago

      Completely agree on the need for this. Flash has become a bloated, overgrown, flawed turd that needs to be eliminated, and many of the biggest sites are starting to do so. Google Chrome will be backing off Flash later this year. RT really needs to get off the Flash train as it approaches the concrete wall.

      The sooner I can uninstall Flash and never look back, the better.

    So out of curiosity is the directors cut of Lazer Team closer to the showing in Toronto that was unrated, or is it going to continue with the PG-13 rating thatwas released? I know I'm 12 for thinking it, but the boobs getting cut out of Gav's x-ray vision scene made me so sad when i saw the official release.

    More sponsor Vlogs please. It'd be nice to get one from Gavin explaining why as the year goes on he's in less and less content and he's never there anymore considering you gave him a promotion. I'm sure anyone else would be fired considering he's on screen talent but ever since he became creative director he's given less shits that he's not in most videos that come out of AH anymore when he's one of the most popular faces in AH and RT than ever before. He used to happy about his attendance in videos now It's always he's gone to do slow mo work with Dan but then only one video comes out a month or whenever he decides to upload one out of many he talks about having. he's a creative director but what is he doing creatively for AH and RT when he's gone most of the time? It was funny at first when the jokes were happening at first but it's concerning now when you look at his attenedance since he's gotten that promotion and it's clear Geoff is tired of it given the many times gavin doesn't even tell his boss he's going out of town. He relys on other people to tell him he's out of town.


    Then there's the Freeplay schedule change that wasn't ever announced considering it's not a sponsors only show and then what happened to FanService Podcast? There was supposed to be a few weeks break and some more test episodes and then news if it was greenlit but there hasnt been news since. What happened to X-ray- and Vav? Haven't heard any news since the last finale? Why is RTX in LA now when you guys are literally there for everything? When are you gonna start doing things on the east coast for fans and sponsors who can't just travel across the country like everyone? Why not just have little pop up events not as big in States like Ohio(we have the blossom center, Civic Theater, Highland Square Theater , KY there's a bunch of places, Tennesee, PA, places you never go.


    You guys are slacking majorly when it comes to giving us sponsors and regular members information when it needs to be givin and just ignoring it all together until the last second or you're tired of hearing about it cause you don't answer the questions and it's not fair to us. We want to know what's happening. We're giving money for sponsorships and buyin merch to happily support these shows to keep them going and getting the news we were promised and now we're aren't allowed the decency to get some information on shows we actually like and want more of. Kinda like our cry for more diversity in on screen talent but is never listened to it and "looked" over for comments or things that aren't as important as everything listed above.

      Gavin's work on slo mo guys literally hasn't changed a bit. No new schedule. No new merch. It's still a whenever I feel like posting video type channel. So what more work is he doin when the same amount of videos are going out that were clearly recorded months in advance? We know he has tons of videos already done but still no change in uploads. Slo mo 2 channel just started and not a lot is on there so I really don't see what he stepped not down for. He has more off time than the people who created the company.

      Legally, RoosterTeeth/Fullscreen cannot respond to it directly because if they did they would be breaching Non-Discretion Agreements, Which is a big NO-NO. They MIGHT give a professional response in some form (beyond what was in this video) but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    In response to Shane's Open Letter:

    It pisses me off. Everybody has gripes about their employers. I just got done switching jobs because I didn't like how my former employer was running things, but I did NOT go complaining to everybody about what they did, because I respected them. When they made a choice on the methods we used, I went with it even if I disagreed, because it was their business to do with what they wanted and they had to make the best decisions that they could, because running a business is not easy, and, afterall, even if I disagreed with them, they still chose me to work for them. When I left, I did so because I wanted to find a job and employers that suited me better, NOT because I felt they were doing some sort of injustice to me. Employees should bend around their employers, NOT the other way around.


    IF what Shane said about Monty's gripes with the way things were going was true, then that would only make me disappointed in Monty. HOWEVER, I do not believe that it is true, because, Monty made it clear that he only ever respected Rooster teeth for giving him the resources and time to create better projects. Also, the one thing that everybody always made clear about Monty (even Shane's open letter itself) was that Monty never cared for drama. He'd probably roll over in his grave if he knew that Shane wrote that letter over ONE of Monty's many projects.


    Finally, I have always been a Rooster teeth fan first-and-foremost and wouldn't have even been exposed to him if it wasn't for them. I'm also pretty sure that Monty was aware that the majority of his fanbase ended up coming because of Rooster teeth's exposure. A good comparison to this would be Ray - well in the spotlight, had problems with the way things were being ran, and decided that it was time for him to move on to many fans' dismay. The DIFFERENCE is that he dealt with it, did things the way they wanted until he was prepared to leave, then left gracefully, keeping private problems private and NOT making a public stink about it.


    -rant done.

      Absolutely agree with you. Shane's open letter does nothing but make it seems like he was/is highly egotistical and placed Monty on a pedestal, which did nothing but create unnecessary drama when Monty passed. Shane never wanted to be there for RT, he was there so he could do his stuff with Monty, which raises questions as to why he even continued there for so long.

      In my view the whole animation department was being reshuffled regardless of what happened with Monty, which is what generally happens and companies get larger/acquired/busier and for Shane to air out his grievances and attack RT based on the fact he didn't want to conform, or open up about his own personal issues is on him, not RT. The whole point of the letter in my view isn't to be honest and open, but to place himself in a higher order than anyone at RT in regards to a friendship and connection with Monty and that's disgusting. We all loved Monty equally in regards to what he gave us as fans, and as a family community, which is what RT is all about IMO.

    • ChazzaWard FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Theoretical Skeptic

      8 months ago

      It did feel very much like It was simply a stubbornness to act the way he had always done. Yes I understand upholding Monty's legacy but to force an entire department to use software they were not comfortable with is a terrible idea in the long run. It may be a case that RT pushed him too hard but it appears that if you are going to be the elastic band dragging back the new dev. program, you are going to be seen as detrimental.


      All of the stuff with Sheena and the various other people "removed" from the show definitely seems like some token phrases were used. I'm sure it is true that they are making it very distinct from the original vision but its not really unsurprising. he puts it best, its a company IP, you have to expect some changes are going to be made


      I know Monty did it his way, but I think its clear that was because that was what was needed to keep Monty going, and he was the only one who was truly benefiting. It is what is best for the whole team that needs to be done, despite the hopes to uphold his legacy

    • GreenJaws FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Beacon Academy Studios

      8 months ago

      The whole thing with Shane's letter certainly caused a great deal of controversy. A lot of people reacted to it in different ways, but here's my view on it at least.

      The underlying problem with it all is that Shane was never there to work for Rooster Teeth, he wasn't in that mindset. As with many who go into animation (I can attest to this also), we have someone in mind that drive us to achieve and progress; for Shane that was Monty. And to work alongside him as his right hand man would have been a dream come true. I mean working with your role model and mentor everyday would be incredible, and to lose that so suddenly, it's nothing short of world shattering.

      While I admire Shane for what he did for RWBY, Vol 3 in particular, he fell into the trap of not escaping the grieving process. He made his whole life about preserving Monty's legacy and his way of doing things down to the letter, trying to make sure nothing was changed from the original ideas Monty put in place. The fact is the real world doesn't work like that; storyboards change, standardized methods move forward with the times, and Shane was a stick in the mud refusing to conform to the company and their preferred way of doing things.


      In the end it's Rooster Teeth's show, they have a truly amazing team of producers, writers and animators behind it making sure it doesn't end before it's time. I don't have any particular problem with the way they have operated; it is a business after all. Things have to keep moving forward in a way that are beneficial to the success of the company. I would have personally liked to see all of Monty's animations and story ideas make it into the final version of RWBY3, but I also recognize that not everything is feasible or in line with the direction the current director and writers want to take the show. The one thing that I wonder about is what "preserving the vision and legacy" means to the producer and co-producers of the series now? Because from what I see it means nothing more than continuing to make the show he started in whatever way they see fit, disregarding the original story that was supposed to be told.


      What hasn't been addressed (and something I've known about for sometime before this open letter business) is the way in which Rooster Teeth conducted themselves with regards to Sheena Oum. While I recognize RT had no binding obligation to involve Sheena in anything RWBY related (as she wasn't member of staff nor contracted worker in any sense of the word); those pulling the strings really should have recognized it would have been generous to allow her to become a part of this legendary team of individuals. Monty worked with her on so many ideas for his show, even went to the length of designing a character for her to voice, a character design that we'll now never see. Who can suddenly decide to force her to have nothing to do with this show anymore? Wouldn't it be in better keeping with upholding "The Vision" to keep someone with such knowledge and insight into the show's direction involved? And what was the underlying reason for outright refusing her involvement? These are questions I want answering above all else, and ones I will absolutely be asking at the RTX panel if they are not addressed.

    • Phatnaru FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      8 months ago

      As far as Sheena goes, I won't comment on it. It is possible that they shut her out and that she deserves to be involved and have a say. It is also possible that she was upset and got too controlling, so they dropped their involvement with her. I honestly don't know, and I'll bet Shane doesn't either when it comes to the heart of the matter, so I'll stay out of that.


      EDIT: I WILL, however, point out that Roosterteeth started a crowd-funded campaign that raised $221,000 for Sheena. Does this right any wrongs to do with involvement in revolving around her role in RWBY IF it did happen? No, but it definitely does show that they care for her well-being have done good by her.

      Having read the letter and witnessing the response of some RT staff and the community it's disheartening to see both how fast some people instantly disengaged themselves from RT and how fast people lashed out at Shane. There's a section that think he was directing anger at unseen Fullscreen execs, but he specially calls out one of the RWBY producers of which there are three, all of whom were also close friends with Monty. Then calls out one of the directors of RWBY, of which there are three, and coincidentally all three were not only close friends with Monty but also helped shape and contribute to not just RWBY but Monty's initial vision for RWBY as well, something he himself said in commentaries.


      Obviously I disagree with alot of the letter, but I can also emphasize with Shane to an extent. He had back to back heartbreaking, stress filled years with really no break. Then he decided to fixate himself on one goal, and he felt isolated and ostracized for trying to do this one thing right. That doesn't mean you go and slam the friends and team that Monty worked with and loved, that doesn't warrant calling the show a shell of what it was, to claim that if only you had been given the torch the show would be right. I feel for everyone involved and I wish Shane the best, but I wish he hadn't put the letter out as it is since at best it's been divisive.


      This sums up the issues I had with the letter more eloquently https://www.reddit.com/r/roosterteeth/comments/4j2...

      @thraaaa I lashed out at Shane because his letter was meant to do nothing else but demonize Roosterteeth, which, for those that are young enough or ignorant enough, it worked. He had no other reason for writing it. It pisses me of, because I'd be willing to bet that his mindset was that if he had to leave, he was taking some fans with him.

      Dunn worry man I wasn't referring to you when I mentioned people lashing out at Shane, you listed why you thought Shane was wrong and criticized what you saw as fallacies, which is totally fine. I meant people that have been much more direct and violent with their responses, which is not acceptable at all

    A couple of things:


    1. Everyone and their mom knows that Burnie and Gavin went to India to get a head massage from Baba or whatever that guy's name is. They've been taking about doing it for years. And since RT now has a documentary division, they've found a way to do it on the company's dime (and hopefully we get a hilarious video from the journey).


    2. You guys seriously need to get a tripod or some sort of camera mounting system for recording these vlogs. The shaky cam's been so bad lately I've been getting headaches trying to watch. I've been thinking that you guys hired Micheal J Fox to be your new cameraman.

    I want the RWBY soundtrack, but I refuse to use itunes.


    And whatever happened to Fan Service?

      @fourworlds yea, what's up with this apple exclusivity? I forced myself to buy the Lazer Team soundtrack even though it's only on there, but I was kinda hoping that RWBY would have a physical release. I guess not

      It's likely -timed- exclusivity. Believe it or not, self-released iTunes sales (not Apple Music streams) probably gets you the "highest" profit in music sales today. They'd be stupid not to try and take advantage of that initial burst. After the sales even out a bit they will probably release it on all the streaming services as well. It's what happened with the last soundtrack as well IIRC.

      @DrDeplorable I think it would rule if the founding fathers got back one more time and wrote an episode of RVB. Or a short. I miss those old shorts. I know things change but a little service to nostalgia every once in a while is kind of nice, no? Maybe it's just me.

    Are the signups for RTX meet and greets going up soon? Will it be like last year where it's first come first served and will be announced in order of VIP>Sponsors/ticketholders>everyone else? Just thought I'd ask.

    Turns out that the company expanding and hiring new people was just Burnie's scheme to get birthday cake every single day.

    Matt, as with all the other higher-ups at RT, are very intelligent and sincere people. I feel like Matt handled the "situation" revolving around the RWBY team masterfully and I agree with those who beat me to it saying that how they run their business is their business. I personally was satisfied and impressed at the statement Matt made and I hope that means that the community can put this behind us.

      Sorry I just got home from work, was the statement you are talking about in the vid or elsewhere? I just want to be sure. Thanks for your time

      @AzureZenon, It's in the video. He drops several key words associated with a certain Open Letter and addressed it without bringing up any of the specifics. Very top class.

    Well. That sounds like the closest we're going to get as a response to Shane's letter.

    It is so lovely to see you Matt!

    We don't see you as often as some of the other key RT players, so it's interesting to know what you are up to and what you are excited about!


    I hope that, while being a bit less regularly 'visible' to the fans, you are receiving and feeling all the love we have for you!

    Many other guys who spend time visibly gaming/chatting get a lots of love as well as the opportunity to tell us how hard they are working!


    We appreciate you for being so lovely and working so hard and investing so much into content for us to love!



    (PS I was totally referring to Miles when referencing staff with gaming airtime who tells everyone how hard they are working while other people are invisibly just working. God love that hilarious guy)
