RWBY Screenprint for MontyThe artist if one of the limited edition RWBY screenprints has some extra copies that he's selling off to raise money for Monty's fund.

So if you missed out when it was in the RT store, head over to Mark Englert's page and pick one up.

10 Years, part 2Remember how I jokingly said that Burnie owed me a cake for being around for 10 years (for reference). Well I've been at the office working on something (no I won't tell you) and this was there on Friday.

10 year retrospective So I guess I should post a 10yr site-iversary journal since my ugly mug has hit double digits.

Ten years ago I joined this site as an introverted 16 year old struggling to find his place in the world. I eventually made a few friends (many of whom are no longer on the site, 10 years is a long time) but I didn't really consider myself an active community member until RvBTO 2008. Something about meeting the community face to face changes the way you perceive this site and its community, it raises it to a whole new level. And since 2008 I have never missed an RvBTO, because it was the one time of the year that I was surrounded by people just like me (and I Like Me see what I did there? ). Meeting the community members helped me to come out of my shell and be more confident in myself. Eventually I said "Why should I go to Canada once a year to see people, we should see each other more often, and this time they should come to me, cause I'm broke and can't afford more trips, and this is becoming a very long run on sentence" So @Jengaship and I founded RT:Philly.

RT:Philly was about bringing the community together and showcasing the community members. We had a good run for a few years slowly expanding our numbers, but eventually we phased it out as the majority of our team moved away from Philly. Our last big event was in 2012, cause in 2013 I knew I was planning on moving to Austin. They're still doing smaller meet-ups for local fans, such as Art Museum or Zoo trips. If you're in the Philly area you should check out the group: RT Philly.

Which brings me to Austin. In July of 2013 I quit my job of 5 years at Temple university and took a chance as a freelancer in Austin. I'll admit the first few months were hard, I burned threw all of my savings as I tried to work my way into this market. I've had to work my fair share of low/no paying gigs just so I could build contacts. A few months after relocating I found myself as a camera operator on Season 2 of The Gauntlet, and since then I've done A couple of Immersion episodes (you can see my fat ass running to help Michael), Infinity Blade, and a few other projects. But you can't call yourself a freelancer and only have one client, so I've also worked a few feature films, a ton of commercials and corporate videos, and a handful of music vids. A lot of those gigs came from recommendations from someone I met while working on the Gauntlet, which wouldn't have happened if it weren't for RT, so Thank You.

Anyways, in closing, @Burnie, it's been 10 years, I expect a cake next time I see you.

Volunteer TripSo my little sister is raising funds to go on a volunteer trip to Kenya with her college. While in Kenya, she'll help build schools in the rural country, dig wells, so that the locals have access to water, and planting trees. She'll also be learning about traditional Maasai culture, exploring the local villages, and engaging the students.

This is an amazing opportunity for her, especially since she's going to school to be a teacher. And I would hate for her to miss the opportunity due to not being able to raise funds, so I figured I'd share it my internet family. If you can spare anything and would like to help out, it would be greatly appreciated.

You can find out a bit more and donate here.
