      We did some recording for Strangerhood tonight. Went very well. Working with new actors and actresses always presents a challenge. I always think our dialog reads very conversationally, but if someone is not familiar with character, it can be a lot of work . To make one of the actors feel at ease tonight, I played the clip of us acting like fools doing the grunt's voices from Epsiode 39. I was trying to show we acting like an idiot behind the mic can be a fun experimentation to find the right reading.

      I thought you guys might like that file. Here it is. This is the clip played very low when Caboose is looking in the window.

    • Season 3

      SEASON 3 IS UP


      So we had a slight delay in releasing Season 3 tonight. If we ever have a delay it's always the same thing. I usually wrap the final edits and sound mix at 6:00 AM the day of release. Everyone looks at it and I ask for comments. Usually everyone will miss a problem that we catch after we have made all the QT files, WMV files and DivX AND uploaded them. Let me give you a quick run down of how much time that is:

      QT encoding = 15 minutes x 2 (Lo & Hi Res) = 30 Minutes
      DivX encoding = 15 minutes x 2 (Lo & Hi Res) = 30 Minutes
      DivX encoding = 20 minutes x 2 (Lo & Hi Res) = 40 Minutes

      Then it takes me FOREVER to upload them (about 20-30 minutes a file). I get some upload overlap while encoding, but it's not 100% overlap. The whole process easilty takes three hours. And usually that comes when I have had no sleep. I could post on the forum and say "hey , I have to fix a problem with background noise on Donut's first line, be back in three hours", but I know people would say "just post it". But I can't live with myself if i do that.

      This time around it was exactly that. The ambient BG background sounds were late on the first shot. They faded in, so it was hard to notice. But once you noticed, it sucked. So I had to redo. You may not think something that small is worth a 3 hour delay but it's very important to us. So far, the only major mistake we put out there was "Cecil" in one of the Season 2 episodes. At least, as far as I can remember. Maybe a couple one frame goofs with Ghost Church, but that's not something most people would see.

      We had lots of fun on this episdoe. Hope you liked it.

      Wrapping Episode 39. Jason just left a few minutes ago and I can catch three hours sleep before work. That might be a record. I wish we had sponsorships running already, I would love to post some of the extra audio from this episode.

      So, right now I am encoding all the different flavors of the file. From here it will go to Nico and Matt to see if they have any changes or additions to make. Then it goes up when I get back from work tonight.

      Yawn,again.

      burnie

      So RvB Season 3 writing is going very well. It's nice because we pretty much now what we can and can't do in the engine now, so the writing gets a lot tighter. I wrote a bit on Sidewinder tonight that should give Matt fits though. The hardest part about Episode 39 was finding the right mix. In Season 2, we had this long story leading up to Doctor O'Malley, but this time around we have several distinct storylines that can be encapsulated in just a few eps. Should be a nice mix of Season One and Two.

    • Nico and Burnie late night convos

      13 years ago

      burnie

      So, I had another round with Nico tonight on AIM and on the phone -- we were talking about all the different aspects of Season 3 (at least, as they stand now) and I was giving Nico my usual lousy advice. It's a great realtionship, I babble at him in my totally uneducated way and he somehow interprets it. I sound like all the producers in LA that I hate. For Strangerhood we boiled the theme music down to "Three's Company theme song meets the Friends theme" and he nailed it. Tonight we got one piece down to "Flight of the Bumblebee meets Benny Hill". Can't wait to hear that.

    • My friend Joel Heyman is dumb.

      13 years ago

      burnie

      So I was reading this thread about Caboose's Evolution and I got to thinking about dear, sweet, dumb Joel Heyman. You know, it's a great thing that guy is good looking, because he would be in a lot of trouble otherwise. When we are at PAX signing DVD's, Joel was at the very end. Our signatures usually have our names and the our character name in quotes. Mine looks like this:

      Burnie Burns
      "Church"

      Some people write their character's T-shirt number as well, but I think that's just lame. Anyway, at some point during the signing, gfunk realized that Joel has been signing his DVD's:

      Joel Heyman
      "Joel"

      Apparently, that's the way he has always signed them. When we asked him about it, he actually admitted a more embarassing fact -- for the first few episodes of Red vs Blue, Joel thought he was playing Donut. Even after the episodes came out. He even registered an account on the old forums as Donut and made some posts as Donut.

      Joel Heyman, I love you.

      I was re-watching episode 10 right now and one thing popped into my head, why is Maine growling? I assumed when he started taking on all those AIs and calling himself the META that all those minds working had basicly toasted the speech section of his brain, but at this point in the whole Praject Freelancer section, he should only have his own. Did Maine always have this speech issue or did you just find it easier to give him no lines other than growling?

      Hey man, I'm seriously curious about something.
      How is it that a featured user is selected?
      It'd be interesting if you posted that or talked about it on a video / podcast.

      What began my curiosity is that the recent Featured Users have A) Little activity B) low karma C) usually only ~25 friends D) No large contributions, like Artwork or AH videos.

      While I must admit, I don't really understand why the comics have come to an end, I do know that most of us enjoyed them greatly.

      A brief glance through the posts on the final comic pretty much can be summarized as most people saying that the comics were what kept most of them coming back to the site. So, with that, I offer up this idea; maybe we could all contribute comics and the like? I've already been working on a couple of little one shot comics, tentatively called Red vs Blue Moments, where a line or scene from an episode is interpreted differently.

      Instead of my silly style I used for that one Captain Dynamic doodle, these are done with quality in mind. As I recall, I was actually racing to make that CD joke before Luke did. Oh well. Let me know what you think :)

      Hey Burnie I'm the guy who you autographed the fake pass (and wore a ninja mask). I just want to apologize for that and I'm also truly thankful that you and Luke wrote me an autograph. I don't want you to have any wrong ideas about me I just really wanted to see you and the rest of the rooster teeth staff that I bought a pass from a scaffholder (which I never knew the pass was fake in the first place). anyway I hope to see you tomorrow at PAX because this time I got a legit pass for sunday.
