    • I can finally talk about Master And Apprentice! (New DIY Prop Making Show)​

      7 months ago

      Hey, everyone! 


      We're beyond excited to finally be able to talk more about Master And Apprentice today. You may have seen some news about it coming out of RTX London. This is the new DIY prop and cosplay-making idea that Adam (Gilby) and I have been trying to spin up for months and, thanks to a really cool deal with Facebook, we now have the resources to make a few videos and see how it goes. 


      This is part of the same partnership that is giving you guys five insanely new themed Million Dollars, But... videos. We're hard at work right now producing the videos and can't wait to show you what we're crafting. 


      We'll hopefully have news soon about a premiere date, so keep an eye out for that, and for some more sneak peeks later today! Oh, and for those wondering about the windowing schedule - after Master And Apprentice premieres free-to-watch for everyone on Facebook, it will go free-to-watch on RoosterTeeth.com after seven days, and then to our YouTube channel seven days after that.


      To tide you over until then... Look at our mugs below. We're ready to craft some super cool things!

      Hey Man, I think I remember seeing a video you put together for RTX 2016 about the secret to set design being the ficus. Any chance that you can link it so I can share it with 1st time Guardians?

      Hey Marcus. Big fan of your builds, as a DIY maker-type guy myself! What's the possibility like of getting something like a DIY video series from you? Would love to see your tricks of the trade!

      Answered: Jun 26, 2016

      Very possible, we have some stuff in development, fingers crossed people like it!

      Hey Marcus, Do you mind sharing the education and training you have had over the years? For example your majors, certifications, and courses you have taken?

      Answered: May 13, 2016

      yes, I have a bachelors degree in "studio art", with a minor in "film production" I spent many years as a sculptor and a custom prop fabricator for film & television, after completing roughly 30 movies, I then transitioned to do more design work. Cheers!

      How long does it usually take you to build all the props for one shoot? for example, the fallout 4 immersion shoot.

      Answered: Mar 20, 2016

      Hey Tony,


      Getting all the scenarios sets and props together for Fallout took about 2 weeks. That was one of my favorite episodes!

      Hey Marcus, I've now seen all episodes of Master And Apprentice and I have a question.

      First of all, great show!! As a german Master Automotive Technician and design enthusiast I especially enjoyed the retinal scanner and the alien motion tracker built. It is really cool to see all those simple tricks to get a very specific effects on a workpiece. I personally would love some Mad Max Fury Road inspired built. "wink wink nudge nudge"
      But back to my question. What brand are those gloves you are wearing in the videos? Never seen those kind before, really curious.
      Have a good one!

      Hi Marcus. After reading your post about the Art Department, it gave me an idea.

      Considering the vast creative community following that Rooster Teeth has, maybe it would be fun to have some kind of monthy (Or so), challenge for the community? Since we don't know the kind of design briefs and constraints you work to in a professional environment, maybe create some small guidelines/requirements for the community to work to, and see what everyone comes up with?

      I know you're incredibly busy, so not having time to post something like this regularly is certainly understandable. I think it may be a great way to showcase the community artists in a way that's not only fan art, but gives us a taste of how you and your team work within the Art Department.

        I love this idea. I've only recently been doing prop creation and I would love the challenge. Plus, seeing other peoples work inspires my own in a big way.
