      Can't wait for the new RT community site functionality to hit -- the tech team is really working hard on an amazing overhaul of everything. With the site update coming soon, now's a great time to get back into the swing o' things and start posting random little stuff again. So, in the spirit of that...


      There was a FastCo article recently about gen:LOCK that had some images, including the first character turnaround from the show. But they only went with the low-rez pictures. So here ya go, this is a higher-rez version of the show's first character sheet! This is Chase. He's a combat aviator before he joins the gL project, and this is him in his flight suit.

      We'll start making more noise about gL in the new year. But, y'know, mmmaybe we'll keep throwing a few breadcrumbs out here'n'there in the meantime. Like, oh, say, storyboards for ep1 started this week.  stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

      Gray

      Hey you, how ya been? What's that? You could really use some animated escapism? You miss hanging out with a few thousand of your closest friends, lazing away the hours watching new cartoons together?


      Then we've got you covered at RTX Austin 2017 with the 1st ever 2nd annual Rooster Teeth Animation Festival. Last year was fun. But this year it's... yyyyyyyeah, that's right. More fun. We've got over 40 contributors lined up for the screenings, including our Saturday morning cartoon craziness hosted by yours truly, Kerry and Miles. And a bunch of guests such as the folks behind Frederator, Cartoon Hangover, How It Should Have Ended, and others to be announced are going to come out to talk with you. 


      Oh, and there are a couple very special events we're putting together just for you.


      What kind of events, might you ask? Oh, I dunno, why don't we start by announcing the exclusive theatrical screening of the CASTLEVANIA ANIMATED SERIES from Netflix Originals? Just for RTX attendees? Screened at the superswank Paramount Theater downtown? With the director Sam Deats, exec producers Fred Seibert and Kevin Kolde from Frederator, and crew from Powerhouse Animation in attendance?

So go get an RTX BADGE if you haven't already and come hang out with us at the RT Anim Fest at RTX. You don't have to wear your PJs and eat sugar cereal all weekend. ...But you could.


      More soon,

    • The Monty Oum Performance Capture Stage

      10 months ago

      Gray

      Two years on, we still miss Monty's drive, his spirit. His goal was not to live forever but to leave something behind that does. In continuing the adventures of Team RWBY, and in pushing ourselves to go further with each and every story we tell, RT Animation is doing what we can to grow that legacy as much as possible.


      RT Animation just moved into a new facility, and we wanted to be very sure to keep a sense of Monty's spark with us. We are dedicating The Monty Oum Performance Capture Stage in his honor.  We hope that as the team enters the new mocap area to bring characters to life, they take a moment to summon a little extra energy, get more motivated, and are surprised to discover even more creativity than they ever knew they had.


      Thank you to the fans who sent us the star registry certificates, the plaque, and all his fan art that we will be adding over time.


      Thanks for everything, Monty.


      With love,

      Rooster Teeth Animation

      Gray

      ...And now I have the picture stuck in my head of Ruby trying to use Crescent Rose to carve a turkey, while ace fighter pilot Zwei pretends he's flying his doghouse. All right then!


      Hiya everybody! Here in the U.S. we are going into our Thanksgiving weekend, and we wanted to let you know how the RWBY schedule is going to go the next few weeks. 

       

      1165908-1479850314352-wor-faunus.jpg


      We'll be running a World of Remnant this holiday weekend while the RWBY crew gets some much-deserved rest and family time, and you will definitely want to check out the new lesson from Qrow. When you think of RWBY, the battles between Hunters and the Grimm come to mind – but what about the struggles of the Faunus? And what's really going on with the White Fang? RWBY's story is about to journey down under to Menagerie, the land of the Faunus! To prepare for this trek, the next World of Remnant will finally cover everything known about the species.

      Chapter 5 will air for FIRST members on December 3, and you won’t want to miss your chance to meet Blake's family! What will they think of Sun? After that, Chapter 6 will run for FIRST members on December 10, and then we'll be halfway through the volume!


      1165908-1479850314352-v4ch5-promo3.jpg

      Be sure to stick with us for future episodes as Ruby and Team RNJR find they are not alone on the road to Mistral, Weiss continues to be caught up in her family's machinations in Atlas, and Yang begins to look for a path to recovery. All this and more await you as the adventure continues throughout RWBY Volume 4!

    • Happy 2nd Birthday, Rooster Teeth Animation

      1 year ago

      Gray

      I've often said it's something of a miracle that Rooster Teeth exists at all, let alone in the middle of Texas.  And it is no small miracle inside that first miracle, an animation studio has sprung from that.


      Several weeks ago, on August 23rd, it was the five year anniversary of getting a phone call from Matt, asking me if I'd be interested in coming to work on RvB9.  On September 16th, it was three years since we wrapped RWBY Volume 1 and I was offered a permanent position at Rooster Teeth. (Somewhat related side note, if you didn't catch it, yesterday was Matt's birthday, so go wish him a great birthday weekend if you hadn't already, eh?)  I'm sure I'll ramble more some other time about getting started here. But for now, the context in which I want to talk about these things has to do specifically with today. It was September 30th two years ago I was called into a review with Matt and Yvonne. They thought it would be a good idea if we formally organized all of Rooster Teeth's animated efforts into a brand new production unit, and asked if I'd be interested in leading it. And then once I reassembled the bits of my exploded brain, I very quickly, enthusiastically agreed. And thus, RT Animation was born.


      With each of these events, I've found myself repeating "I can't believe this is my life."  Which is to say, I can't believe how lucky I am to work with such an amazingly talented and hard working team, this chosen family. And I can't believe how far we've already come.


      We've gone from a dozen or so people scattered through the 636 building, to the nearly 80 people dominating Stage 5, and we'll be growing yet again at a pretty decent clip next year.  I walk around the teams' stations and frequently catch myself having paused to stare in wonder at what's on everyone's screens - the care, skill, and artistry being applied by every single person. I think back fondly to what we were able to pull off with so few people just a few years ago, and then how everything continues to look and sound even more amazing now.  And you better damn believe we're excited to show you where we're going from here. 


      RT's Summer of Animation has been winding down, and a sincere congrats are in order for all three crews for Camp Camp, RWBY Chibi and RvB14. We're headed into RWBY hype season, and the team is thrilled to finally be able to show you what we've been up to.  Thank you for all the kind words this week as we've begun releasing the new character portraits and the sneak peeks of the Volume 4 short which will see the light of day this coming Monday. The team has been pushing themselves so hard to raise the bar higher yet again on every aspect of the show, and I couldn't be prouder of them. They deserve all the love you can send them.


      Regarding other RT Anim happenings, we've got NYCC next week, so stay tuned for more of that insanity. The return of Fan Service draws near. Sex Swing will debut this Fall. RTAA continues to rock it. And then you absolutely would not believe the number and scale of the productions we are going for over the course of what will be only our third year.  If you thought 2016 was a wild ride...


      One last thing -- a change is on the horizon for RT Anim which serves as a pretty nifty birthday present.  There will be more on this probably the same weekend RWBY Vol. 4 hits.  But in just a few weeks, Anim will be moving into a new building!! We've become a bit too big for our britches, and we need a space as big, bright, and cool as the department's future. Check out the pics below for a glimpse of all the work going into our new home!  For some perspective: at the time we move into the new space, Anim will be bigger than RT was as a whole, when the company moved onto the lot just over two years ago.  Soooo, yeah.  Crazy times!


      Thank you to everyone I've crewed with, my first five years at the company. I love each and every one of you, and you have no idea how thrilled I am for what's to come for us. Thanks to Matt, Yvonne, Burnie and all who have entrusted me with this very unique team its first two years.  It's the greatest privilege I've had thus far in life, and I'll... uh, well, I'll try not to screw it up too much. But thanks most of all to you for watching and supporting us.  When it comes down to it, it's all because of you.


      Cheers everyone,
      Gray

      Gray

      Camp Camp has launched! Thanks to everyone for checking it out and being so supportive! If you haven't seen the series premiere yet, it's available now to all RT site members, then will go totally public this Friday as episode 2 goes up for Sponsors.

'Til then, keep watching and let us know in the video comments how you're liking it! Campe Diem!


      Next up, today marks the last episode of "Minimations: Straight Outta RT!" Machinimeister Josh Ornelas has this to say on the occasion: "Over the past year, we've had the pleasure of working with the incredible community talent, The Lone Few. These individuals have showcased amazing vision and direction, helping to create our run of minimations: 'Straight Outta RT.' Working hand in hand, they've made us laugh with their creativity and execution, but have also shown they are willing to keep learning new and innovative ways to increase the production value of their work. We admire this genuine effort in all it's entirety, and we cannot be more thankful of the work they have done for us." So thanks to Austin Clark, Kyle Moran, Shane Roberts and everyone else helping The Lone Few, for bringing the crazy every month! Meanwhile, RTAA will return to its original schedule, running every Monday of the month.


      Lastly, we have two new RWBY character turnarounds for you: Flynt Coal and Neon Katt! And more will be coming soon.

      I'm writing this to you and to the other writers and creators of RWBY. Please pass it along if you read this post. I know other fans have criticized the way Vol 3 and 4 played out but I wanted to tell you that I think it was excellent. Not one of the volumes were a low point of the series. Volumes 1 and 2 are light and fun while still foreshadowing to a longer, darker storyline ahead. After I got over the shock that was the climax of Vol 3, I thought it was excellent writing. Did it break my heart that beloved characters died, were forever changed and traumatized? Yes. But I don't think it was mistake. I don't want CRWBY to see the critics of Vol 3 sudden dark change, of Prryha's death to make you reevaluate your writing choices in the future. Volume 3 made the show much more mature and gave it more depth. The sudden and disturbing turn of events conveyed the message that this is war, that the stakes are extremely high. And there is no better way to convey a message like that, to make the audience feel the pain and shock that the characters feel than killing off a loved character. All the events at the end of season 3 at added to the connection that the audience feels with the characters--they grieve together. And in Vol. 4 they heal together. Was it slightly disappointing to not have the 4 main characters not interact at all? Yeah but it made sense. When such a traumatic event happens that endangers the lives of teenagers, those teenagers would go home to heal and recuperate. And the four of them all lived in separate places. And it gave such an amazing opportunity for world building! And on that front, both the animators and the writers did a wonderful job. (I would've liked to have seen Atlas and meet Weiss' mother. And Adam's actions didn't make much sense. but one can only do so much with such short episodes. I hope to see the two former things and an explanation of Adam's actions in the future) Vol. 4 had a lighter tone, which contrasted nicely to Vol 3. At the same time, it gave the world and characters more depth, maturity and detail. 

      So when you see all these fans complaining, please remember that some of us loved it! ^This opinion goes for not one but two fans. My boyfriend strongly agrees with everything I've written.


      P.S. By the way, I'd LOVE to see team STRQ in flashbacks or something...especially the absolute badass Qrow!!  heart_eyes

      Okay. I just had a brainstorm for I what I think could be a really good comedy segment for RWBY Chibi involving Blake, Neon and Zwei. Brace yourself...


      Neon and Blake are both stuck up in a tree with Zwei barking at them (not angry barking more like "I want to be your friend! Please play with me!" type barking). After a while Blake looks at Neon and says "Y'know, he's really not that bad once you get to know him." At which point Neon shoots a look at Blake as if to say "Really?!" Then they start cat fighting in the tree and then Zwei is like "Fine! I'll go play with Velvet! At least she understands me... somewhat..." (in Canine Language) and he then walks off, leaving Neon and Blake still scrapping in the tree.

      Just stopping to say that you have done an amazing job voicing Torchwick. Definitely my favorite character and voice acting, great job!


      While I do hope we see him again in the show, I'm glad we at least got the pleasure of listening to you voicing him for 3 volumes. Overall great job and keep up the great work!


      But seriously, that better not be the end of him. You can't get rid of the best villain quite yet, and not like that. (Though the irony is somewhat appreciated.)

      I still fully believe in you, Kerry, Miles and everyone else who worked on RWBY. You made a Volume of RWBY almost entirely without Monty, and it turned out great. Sometimes you have to change how things are done, or have a few weeks pause between episodes. Better to have quality over quantity. I also have heard that you guys had to make decisions that not everyone agreed with. Making hard decisions is part of life, and you guys certainly have had to make a lot of those in the past year.

      In all, thank you for your hard work. You will continue to have my support.

      I already took the Fan Service Podcast survey, but I had another idea that MIGHT add a tad bit extra work in post-production. When the Spoiler Tag comes up, there should be a time stamp where the spoilers stop for that segment so I can safely resume the conversation. I'm too scared to click around somewhat randomly and accidentally hear something and/or miss information.

      It'd be impossible to do live, but maybe the uploads could have this feature? It'd be super nice. :)

      I reeeeaaaallly hope Roman isn't dead, your acting was tied with Shannon's and Jen's as my favourite... I don't think I could cope if none of you are in Volume 4.

      I'm really hoping it's just a quick thing and she will come back to assume her rightful place as Fall maiden...... For once, I hope you guys to change your mind...... I trust you guys, but dang, I wept like a baby when Pyrrha died... and I still hope she will come back...

      So I just watched the RWBY finale, and my emotions are all over the place. I love you guys(meaning you and all of RWBY production) for the Cinder vs. Ozpin fight, it had a very Luke vs Vader from Empire Strikes back feel. I love that you brought closure to all the Arkos shippers, I even loved the Achilles call back. Weiss doing the same trick to the tower that she did on the cliff during team placements was a great contrast, it also emphasized the beginning and end(currently) of Team RWBY.

      Pyrrha going out the same way as Amber was appropriate in a theme for Fall Maiden deaths, and also begs the question on what the red lights exiting her chest was her soul? last wisps of aura? maybe her blood is polarized from her semblance and it was simply magnetizing to the nearest metal?

      Ruby doing what I initially thought was activating her maiden powers inherited from her mother, but after Qrows little lecture I'm thinking it is something similar yet different. Knights to protect the Maidens possibly? Maybe Qrow was lying to protect what little innocence Ruby has after everything that happened to her in her last 3 hours? Was it even that long from Yang being disqualified to Pyrrha going out heroically?


      Team JNRR promises to be an interesting dynamic, especially how 3 are motivated by revenge while the last just genuinely thinks she has a duty to stop Cinder(for she doesn't know about Salem). You also added more fuel to the Qrow/crow and Raven/raven theories.


      Finally Salem, my gut says she is the original winter maiden corrupted some how, but Salem could also refer to some disembodied spirit that is created from/created the grimm and can inhabit any body. Which means despite her looking like the Winter Maiden, she could be using anyone's body even Summer Rose.


      You've left me with a lot of questions, and I can't wait for Volume 4. That said, I'm a little disappointed in Blake for running away but I trust you guys have a plan.

      The things you do make the lives of so many that much more enriching. The worlds you have helped create will live in the hearts and minds of so many and I wanted to say thanks.

      Thank you Gray for bringing up PAT Labor when discussing Active Raid! That's exactly what I thought of when I started watching it. I haven't run into anyone who has seen PAT Labor outside of my Dad, who introduced me to it. Actually, the PAT Labor movie and Gundam Wing were my introductions to anime. Anyway, wanted to express gratitude for bringing up a classic; Wisdom and Courage and all that. Keep up the good work with the Anime sponsorcast.

      Hey Gray, I want to send you a video that I made in my film editing class. I used stuff from RWBY to make an AMV. My teacher loves it and everyone that I have shown loves it too. I just wanted to see what you thought of it (since you're one of the creators). So if there is anyway I can get an email address from you, so that I can send you the video. I would just put the link in this message, but I might send it to AMV Contest's so I don't want it online yet until after I do that. So if there is a way I can send it to you let me know. Good Luck with the rest of RWBY Volume 3!

      Hey Gray, just wanted to first off say that I am hyped as all hell for the new volume of RWBY, can't wait! Also wanted to ask, with RWBY gaining so much attention and popularity, do you think it might ever possible for a drama CD to be made? Just a curious thought.

      Hey Gray. I just have a question, and since you're the head of RT Animation, I think you can answer it. It's my Senior year of HS, so I've been thinking about what career I want to follow. And, since going to the RT Animation panel, a 3D animator has been on my mind ever since. So, my question is, can you please point me to one of the 3D animators here on the site? I just want to ask him/her some questions about how to start out. Thanks.

      Hello Gray, I love your work and am inspired by your ability to voice act. I have always wondered what you guys do to give Locus that sort of muffled voice when talks. Combined with your incredible talent, it makes Locus the coolest and scariest sounding character I have ever seen and I love it!

      Hey Gray, when will Grimm Eclipse be available for us non sponsors?
      I can't exactly afford sponsorship and I would love to play it

      Also, when it is released will we see it on platforms like Xbox?
      And what would the cost be...? Will it be free to play?

      Sorry for the overload of questions...I just really want to get my hands on it

      Hey Gray So I came across this web show on youtube called Man at Arms: Reforged. They make real versions of video game, movie, and anime weapons, and I thought it would be awesome to get a weapon from RWBY on the show in order to honor Monty. So I need your help anyone who wants to see this should post messages on Baltimore Knife and Sword's Facebook and on the videos.
      This means a lot to me and I want RT and Monty to get the recognition for their work. So will you help me spread the word?
      here is a link to one of the many episodes of the show: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uk20D-RcXU
      and here is the link to their facebook account: www.facebook.com/baltimoreknife

      I just watched the Ocean Maker short. I have to say, that I am thoroughly impressed with what Mighty Coconut have come up with. It has completely blown me away, it is just absolutely incredible. Kudos to them!! smiley1.gif

      Also I played RWBY Grim Eclipse, tis extremely amazing. Also tell a certain Rage Quitter, that I cannot wait to play as his character when the game comes out. Seriously I would love to see some Sun Wukong Game-play more than any other character in the franchise thus far.

      Hello Mr. Gray i have been following rooster teeth for years now and only recently joined this wondrous community. And if you would bare with me I would like to tell you my story. I had heard from a friend about rooster teeth and since then had been watching RvB any chance i got. But when i had heard about the series RWBY i didn't really think much of it. But about 2 months ago i decided to check it out and since then i have been entranced with it, so when i heard Monty had passed i was devastated. But i thought that the best way to honor him was to simply be creative to try and show what he stood for. So this brings me to my question, i know the RvB and RWBY production and animation team has been using poser and i was wondering if you could give any sort of tips, advice, or otherwise info on your animation process. The reason why is that you all have inspired me to try and start creating and as i have been intrigued by animation and i was wondering if you could offer any sort of help to someone who has no experience in animation and is somewhat bad at sketching and drawing so that i may create just as Monty and you all have because i feel obsolete just watching you all do the work when i feel if i knew how i could create something very good as well. In conclusion you have all inspired me to try and create and i fell with a little help i can do just that. If you did get the chance to read this i appreciate you taking time out of your day for reading this and thanks to all of you.

      Gray, I have a couple things to tell you and ask you, since I don't really know who else to ask:

      Thank you for the podcast, thank you for your work and helping Monty to make his dream come true. I am so very sorry for your loss and for the events of the past two-ish weeks.

      Now I have to ask, can you possibly find a way for us to catch a glimpse of Monty's Office? I want to see his creative hive and what was his surroundings. He inspired me and many others, so I think it might be great if we get a chance to "stand" in that room and get a crazy idea.

      I understand if you can't do it, and I respect the privacy of RoosterTeeth and the Oum family. I will keep you all in my prayers and in my thoughts. If it weren't for RoosterTeeth and Monty I wouldn't be the creative mind I am today, and I hope his spark in this world never fades. God bless you all at RoosterTeeth, and good luck with the future.
