I didn't think it would feel weird, but it does.
I've been working with RT in some capacity since 2010, and have been part of many productions, but nothing makes me more excited/nervous/giddy-as-a-school-girl than RvB. And this is a whole new experience for me, taking on writing the characters from the show that, for all intents and purposes, made me pursue my creative aspirations. Getting to write episodes for this season of Red vs Blue is a major cross off my creative bucket list (Crucket List?).
I remember the exact moment I first watched RvB. I was a 12-year-old kid who liked playing Halo, and this show which took the game I enjoyed and blended it with movie making just blew my mind. It's been a long road to go from there to here, and it's been quite the experience. And even though I've been part at Rooster Teeth for a few years, this one thing, feels somehow different than everything else. This must be what Miles feels like all the time.
I don't want to get too sentimental -- I think it's more nostalgia than anything. The feeling of seeing RvB for the first time, in old school Halo 1 format, is what really inspired me to take up the task of these episodes. I hope everyone who has loved early Red vs Blue episodes feels that same nostalgia and remembers why they love this show, just as I did.
The first of my three episodes it out for sponsors now. It'll be up for site users tomorrow, and then on YouTube next week, so there's plenty of chances to see it. Shouts out to @Miles for his insight while I started looking for ideas, and to @Kyle for directing this episode. It's really a pleasure to work with such talented folks, and this experience is a reminder of that.
