      I know it is forward thinking, but I want to keep track of special/funny Broadcast moments over the 2017 year of productions and make a list/clips to remember and show off those moments we shared together this year.

      I am making it a goal to keep track of certain events in shows, but I want to hear what you like! Reactions - Close Ups - Bad Shots - "Sorry Broadcast" Moments - Yelling - you name it!


      Send your moments my way and I will keep track of mine as well. I may keep track of First Member content on a separate list. Let me know your favorite moments including: *What episode it happened in, What time in the show did it happen, Notes on what happened*.


      I look forward to laughing through the new year with you and having some incredible times with each new show! Now let's get through 2017 so we can celebrate it already!



    • Evv asked RTcastMichael a question

      Hey Michael! I was wondering how you got into broadcasting. ( What lead to your career in production? )

      Answered: Oct 12, 2016

      Hey Evv!

      Great question - hopefully I answer it well enough for you because it is a little crazy.

      I actually started off as a photographer with a small point and shoot and always loved being behind the camera. Kept working at it and challenged myself to improve and fell in love with the craft. 

      In college I turned photography into filming sporting highlights and next into the love of live shows and the nerve racking feel I get with every show.

      After that it was a lot of hard work and long hours and never stop improving.

      Have a great night!

      I have been saying for years you will not find me in front of a camera (with a mic) for nothing! Welll....Free Play changed that. After my years of being behind the scenes and avoiding it, I have sat down in front of a camera and all to say what I enjoyed from Free Play so far.

      And the shows are only getting better and better! Check out what everyone said on our Thanksgiving special right here ---> Free Play Thanksgiving!

      We have upgraded from sticky-notes to a whiteboard! We are legit now.

      Make sure to tune in to live streams 15 minutes before and watch us in the broadcast room for a possibility of pre-stream shenanigans! Already we have made shout outs, showed off never before seen shirts, watched Peyton fall from a chair and fulfilled a few high-five request.

      You never know what could happen on the next stream! Join the convo with the hashtag of the stream and of course #RoosterTeeth.

    • First Week at RT

      1 year ago

      RTcastMichael RT Broadcast guy

      Wow I picked one heck of a week to join the Rooster Teeth Broadcast family!

      First came Extra Life 2015, the 24hr live stream where anything and everything happened. I was informed the longest any production crew member had stayed and helped with the event was 21 hours. I made it my goal to make my first impression on the company by staying here for the entire event. Sadly, I wanted a little more sleep and was only able to do 23 1/2 hours. For all that hard work...called a slacker. As a good friend of mine always says in this kind of situation - "Do Better Michael"

      I had an incredible time working the stream and had a blast every time the bells went off just so I could button mash the cameras in what ever order I felt like. I can not wait for next year and maybe this time I will reach the full 24 hours much like many of you that stayed up to watch the entire event.

      After trying to catch up on sleep with the remaining of my Sunday going into Monday I stumbled back into Rooster Teeth where I was introduced to the entire company. THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE! It is incredible to see how many are really involved in this company and strive to make it the best thing ever.

      The next project is one I have been watching for years much like a lot of us - The Rooster Teeth Podcast. I know everyone has the option to watch the podcast a few days after, but experiencing the podcast live is something I highly recommend for anyone. I learned a very important lesson that night...cut the camera to Burnie faster. Now his shot is always in my preview screen just to be sure. Even before the stream Barbara had me fulfilling Twitter request because people were freaking out to see someone new in the control room. Now the control room is coming together to do some pre-stream shenanigans featuring myself, Nick the audio guy and Peyton the expert. You might catch a glimpse of others in the broadcast department from time to time so make sure to tune in 15 minutes early and join in the conversation for the stream.

      Now that I have been here for a complete week I can already say I will enjoy my time with this company, this department and all of you in the community. Thank you every one who has helped me so far and those who have welcomed me in. I look forward to being a part of future live streams and more pre-stream shenanigans.

      Also, shout out to my first Rooster Teeth community friend DustlessPath, who is my famous friend because of six degrees of Kevin Bacon - never really got that reference but he is still a great friend.

    I write on the whiteboard during the prestream and switch the cameras to show you the best reactions! Enjoy the show.

      Hi Michael,

        Are you and the crew still running what look like BlackMagic's Studio and Cinema cameras for the Podcasts? From the control room perspective, what are your thoughts on them? Any problems arise mid feed? Any significant pros/cons compared to shooting with DSLR's in the past? I'd like to hear your input on RT's broadcasting setup.
