Are you taking RWBY History 101 this Fall?Hey Beacon Students-

We have a unique lineup for RWBY fans this Thursday! This is an "off" week for new RWBY episodes, with Chapter 5 hitting next Thursday the 28th. BUT! We do have new content for you this week from the world of Remnant! Called... "World of Remnant" ...which seems fitting. Anyhoo, this August 21st, at 3pm Central for Rooster Teeth Sponsors (and 7pm for general public), fans will get the first of several new "history lessons," each exploring a particular corner of RWBY's world. And it's all fair game for the quiz... that you give us!

We're also doing a public livestream this Thursday at 5pm Central, here on RoosterTeeth.com! Join Monty, Kerry, Miles and the gang as they answer your questions based on being a third through Volume 2. You can begin leaving your questions now in the comments for this journal entry, and you'll also be able to tweet using #RWBY_QA during the livestream. As part of this stream we'll also be chatting with the RWBY animation team as they wrap up animation for all of Volume 2 this week! So anything goes: story, art, animation, tech, ask away!

See ya in a couple days,
g.

RWBY's Turning Japanese, RWBY's Turning Japanese, I Really Think SoWe mentioned it at RTX, but now it's official -- the team here is thrilled to announce that Warner Brothers Japan has licensed RWBY for distribution and merchandising!

In 2015, WBJ will offer Japanese RWBY fans Blu-rays and DVDs that include a brand new Japanese audio experience, as well as some other treats we hope to announce soon. WBJ has produced such titles as "Accel World" and "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure," and the team that will be sheparding RWBY in Japan have also worked on such series as "Ergo Proxy," "Hellsing," "Lain," and "Tenchi Muyo" just to name a few. WBJ begins promoting RWBY this weekend at the Comic Market or "Comiket" event in Tokyo!

Adweek already has coverage on the announcement, including some comments from Matt, over at:
www.adweek.com/news/technology/american-made...

Stay tuned for news on the voice cast, merchandise plans, and... other fun things! ;)

Call for RWBY Fan Art!A conversation that happens all the time on the RT animation team is the amazement at how talented the fandom is. If we ever need a little break or a shot of motivation, all we need to recharge is to catch up on the fans' contributions on the various art & social sites. Not once have I ever peeked in on all the posts going by without being genuinely blown away by someone's work.

And now in return, we want to show off your stuff -- check out this call for submissions here! We're looking at a variety of ways we might be able to promote your art... including appearing in RWBY itself. So please do consider submitting your pieces, and we also need help getting the word out internationally -- if you have a favorite artist to whom you can get a message in their native language, letting them know to please enter their art, we'd really appreciate it.

Thanks and looking forward to seeing your work!

FAQs
- Yes, you can enter as many of your different pieces as you like.
- Please submit high resolutions renders when possible, preferably the original dimensions / resolution you created the piece in (if digital), or at least 2K pixels high if you can? Minimum 200dpi, 300dpi preferred if a print piece. We'll put more detailed specs on the submission page shortly.
- At this time, we're asking only for art related to the canon RWBY universe. We will let you know when we're ready for artists to submit their original characters and weapons for an "expanded universe" call!

RWBY Crew Shirt WinnersThanks for sharing all the community photos yesterday! It was so cool to see all the different responses from Rooster Teethers around the world, whether it was you out'n'about in your favorite gear, or surrounded by all the RTness in your room, or the fantastic cosplay. We were so excited by the response... we decided to give out three shirts! So congratulations to RT community members @HeLiam, @DanielStokes and @MsJorable! We'll get the crew here to sign the shirts and send those out to you next week.

cheers gang,

Happy Community Day from RT AnimationAllo RT Animation fans!

First and foremost, Happy RT Community Day!! Hope everyone's doing well. Got a few things to share today!

Sooo, we've been wanting to do something cool for the RWBY fans on one of these community days. Annnd in the move to the new office, we found a tiny stash of the original RWBY Volume 1 Crew T-shirts (like the one I'm wearing in my & Lindsay's community day selfie below). Annnnnnd, we'd like to give one -- to *you*!

So let's try a little something. Post a copy of your RT community day photo (or, worst case, a link to it) in the comments below and we'll pick one at random by the end of the day to receive the shirt. When we pick the winner, you can tell us what size you prefer (we'll do the best we can, no guarantee) and if you want it clean -- or signed by the cast & crew members that are around this week! A little thanks from us to you.

Everybody catch the most recent RWBY production journal on performance and animation? Check it out here!

Next up, if you are a fan of objects that are capable of containing liquids, you may have noticed the stylin' RWBY mug brandished in that community day selfie -- that should show up in the Rooster Teeth Store today along with a couple other goodies! Also, the phone cases and buttons arrived in the store recently, check 'em out.

Lastly, RWBY fans will want to pay attention to goings-on *next* Thursday, May 22. If all goes as planned, we may have *three* different little bits of RWBY special-ness for you. Stay tuned, eh?

All for now! Have a cockbitin' day! Y'know, in a good way.

On the occasion of leaving 636...



So the first pic is what the main RT soundstage looked like as we were starting R&D on the CG pipeline for RvB10. Monty and Shane were already in here, and Ryan, Kerry, and I had just moved down from where we were scattered throughout the building during RvB9.

Second pic is how the studio looks as I post this, just before we start breaking it down to move this week to the Austin Studios lot. All of RWBY and RvB are in here, as well as half of Achievement Hunter and the live action staff — 35 people at present. Time flies, having fun, something something…
