      We all need to get better as fans of things. On last week's podcast, I said I liked Justice League, but I guess I didn't like ENOUGH for some people. I've been getting blasted on social media for daring to criticize the portrayal of Superman in the movie. I was actually way more critical of the Flash, but OK.


      Plus it's always oddly disappointing to get blasted by someone who has a cartoon avatar. I make cartoons as part of my living, but when someone is just furious on the internet and they choose to represent themselves with a picture of a cartoon character -- it's really hard to take it seriously. 

    • Holiday Gift Guide

      5 months ago

      burnie

      Among the exciting hires we have made recently is a gentleman named Eric Vespe, who is a longtime friend and for years was the primary editorial voice behind one of the worlds oldest entertainment sites.


      One of the things that Eric is known for is his extensive Holiday Gift Guide for people who love movies, comics and video games. I’ve mentioned the guide many times on social media (especially when he was kind enough to include RvB boxsets). I’m proud to say that Eric’s 2017 gift guide will be debuting on RT this week.

      I also think it’s important to disclose that the Guide has always been supported by retail affiliate links. This is not something we have widely implemented previously at RT but I think it’s important for us to find seamless ways to support new content that don’t impact the community. Nonetheless it’s important that we be transparent when trying these things. 


      Basically the way it works is that if you click on a link from the guide it will take yiu to the product’s site and if you were to buy anything during that visit, Rooster Teeth is paid a fee. This does not affect the price of the item nor does it influence the products Eric chooses to highlight. Proceeds from the Guide will be used to fund new productions and hopefully hire new people at The Know. 


      We will also include a disclosure at the bottom of each installment of the Gift Guide.


      Hope that you’ll support Eric’s incredible amount of work that he puts into finding some really amazing gift ideas for the geeks in your life.

      Been working with Tilt Shift for a while now. I was always happy with my results but wanted to figure out how to really amplify that miniature feeling. Spent some time last week studying up on the technique and had a real breakthrough. 


      Basically, I am saying I hope you like tilt shift shots because you are going to see a lot more of them in future vlogs.

      Wow. The Webbys just listed me as an honoree for Best Host/Personality for my work on the vlog. Didn't expect something like that so soon after it started, and alongside some big names in that genre. Thanks everyone who supports the show. It's been fun working on it these past few months. What an awesome day.

      After last week's epic 20 minute vlog, I am going to make this week's episode more of a relaxed affair. It's been a long time since we did a Q&A , so submit some questions and I'll answer the ones that get the most mods. So mod up the ones you like!


      Don't make the questions just for me. I will try to find people if you have specific questions for them. No guarantees on that though; we have five different things shooting today. 


      If you don't have an RT account, you can also send your questions to 


      burnie on twitter

      burnie on instagram


      And these will be posted on the vlog, so edit your typos and stop embarrassing your mother. 


      If for some reason you don't want your username and avatar displayed, please include that in the comment and I will just read your question.

      Today's vlog will be a bit of a rerun for most FIRST members but there is an announcement at the start of the video. In a nutshell, the Vlog will now be available to the public after a window on FIRST. We are also going to start producing it on a weekly basis. We plan to make a FIRST only vlog that is more of a "state of the union" for Rooster Teeth. 


      Thanks for the suggestion that the Monday vlog should be the one to introduce the public to the production. I agree it's a good representation.


      PS there are some new shots in the Monday Vlog. I spent time with a couple more groups to get a more complete view of the company.

      So the shows are still coming out pretty regularly, but most of the office has been quiet these last few days with most people taking vacation this week. There's still a skeleton crew of hard working employees making sure that the shows we recorded for this week go out on time. 


      How is your week before New Years going? Any plans for New Years Eve?

      Congrats on Lazer Team Burnie! It was incredible and it really looked like a Hollywood film!


      On a sidenote, I just saw that it's rumoured that Grand Admiral Thrawn will make a cameo in Star Wars Rebels, which I think is the character that you wanted to see instead of General Hux in The Force Awakens? Just thought you might be interested :) http://makingstarwars.net/2016/01/rumor-the-larges...

      They could really use your support and maybe you've been experiencing similar issues yourself.This deserves some attention and I thought I'd share it with you.

      @burnie - we had a solid debate about climate change going on in the Oxford Comma Cafe here in the forums if you wanted to see some of the topics. It mostly starts on page 194, but it's a flowing forum with multiple discussions so look for the longest posts.


      Safe travels and good luck next week!

      Surprised nobody else said it yet. Guess everything's moved to other social media or something. Hope everyone's been saying it somewhere.


      Sorry you got a cut finger for your birthday though, that's a bitch.


      Just curious - Do you have a Steam at all? Typically on someone's Birthday I go and look to see what they have on their wishlist, but yeah you don't have a steamname listed on your profile and stuff.

      Hey Burnie! There's two showings for Lazer Team near me on the 27th, but they're both sold out (I had to wait till paid to buy my ticket). Is there anyway to get another ticket or something? Just wondering if you might have any idea on what to do here. I really want to go see it.

      Hey Burnie, what are the chances of some songs from Jeff Williams and Trocadero becoming DLC in Rock Band 4? I was hoping that the sponsored stuff you did for RB4 would mean that you guys would be able to encourage Harmonix more than the fans who've used their song request page to try to get some RT music in the game.

      Hi Burnie,

      You announced in your vlog on the 26th last month that lazer team will be released on YouTube red, however there is no release date for YouTube red set in the UK. Are there any plans for releasing the film to the UK and any other country that doesn't have access to YouTube red or will it be a case of you'll get it when you get it?

      Thanks, Zac

        Season 1 Church was the Alpha AI(Seen during the CGI moments in the Freelancers Saga) who after the crash of the Ship and presumed death of Carolina was moved to Blood Gulch under the protection of Agent Florida(Captain Butch Flowers).

        Church was given fake memories based on the Directors life. When he "died" for the first time, he thought he was a ghost. This kept up for a few seasons and such, until Season 6 episode 19, where he got wiped out by the EMP.

        After that, the Epsilon AI took over the role of "Protagonist".

      I enjoyed the vlog. I thought it was well done and I will enjoy something further.

      The short 1min clips at the end is a great idea, you overlaying your audio is even better, that way it can cut off randomly and we know you did that on purpose.

      You asked for suggestions, and the one thing I'd suggest is being informative about your process. I know that you guys have inspired a lot of film makers (including myself), and I'd like to understand better some of the cameras you'd suggest if you were on a budget today, as well as other film related things. Roosterteeth is a great comedy-centered company doing very serious things in order for it to work. I'd like to know the gears behind it a bit more.

      At the beginning of Podcast 344, you guys talked about what constitutes an apocalypse, and you made the claim that even if only 10% of the population died, society would break down. It should be pointed out that during the Black Death, anywhere from 75, to 200 million people died. It's argued that because Europe was so depopulated, it allowed some amount of social mobility, which gave rise to the Renaissance. This is still argued to this day by scholars, but the caste system in Europe was heavily changed once the plague had begun to die down.

      Also, I keep lifeboat rations, and other survival tools in my car. I don't have any potable water, but I have water purification tablets for days.

      I had the great pleasure of getting to meet the talented Mr. Burnie Burns for the second time today after his speaking event in Lincoln, Nebraska.


      That man really knows how to give a motivational and informative seminar. I had an amazing time listening to his words and gathered a lot of useful information from what he had to say. Burnie was even kind enough to stay afterwards and meet everyone who came and take a picture. But what's great about Burnie is that he doesn't just take a picture. He also stops to have a short conversation with everyone he meets. And that's when you know someone truly respects and cares for their fans. They are willing to spend more of their time than they need to to make sure they get the experience they want.


      My experience is a great example of this. I got up to him, told him who I was and that I had met him a month before at RTX during one of his signings. Then I tried to motion the lady with my phone to go ahead and take the picture because I knew there so many people behind me and I didn't want to take up too much time myself. But then he stopped the camera and proceeded to ask me more questions and carry on the conversation. I was blown away. There was all these people behind me he still had to meet and he was willing to take the time to continue talking to me. We talked about RTX, my socks (which had chattering teeth on them), and a little bit about his presentation. Burnie really knows how to treat his fans and I am incredibly honored to have the experience with him that I had tonight.


      Burnie didn't have to come all the way to Lincoln, Nebraska to speak, but he did and I am one of a couple hundred people who are vastly appreciative of tonight.


      I am proud to call Burnie my idol.

      I have had the same profile picture since I created this account 4 years ago. Today I met Burnie Burns! I finally have a good reason to change my picture.

      Burnie came to Lincoln to give a presentation titled, "Creating Internet Content". He was nice enough to stick around for hours to meet fans and take pictures.

      The presentation was awesome. I learned a lot and I had a bunch of good laughs. Most of all it was great meeting him and interacting with him. I have honestly always felt that I want Rooster Teeth to focus on creating content that I enjoy. I don't need to take up their time with fan interaction. I enjoy their content and I am perfectly happy seeing them from my computer screen.

      However, seeing Burnie today makes me appreciate what he does for this community and Rooster Teeth's fans. He gives us a reason to laugh and smile. That is something I want to support.

      Hey Burnie,

      Just thought you should check out this youtuber penguinz0! https://www.youtube.com/user/penguinz0 He's a really cool guy who's fallen on some hard times. This ins't me shamelessly plugging myself, I've enjoyed his content for awhile now and I just thought if you like his work maybe you could reach out to him. I've had an account on Roosterteeth for a long time now and i don't comment or post much, but I thought this dude deserves some recognition. Again this isn't my content, I'm just a fan of Roosterteeth and penguinz0 who thought he could use some support.

      Thanks for your time,

      Burnie,

      I just wanted to say thanks for all the laughs you given me. I started with RvB when i was 12 and I have grown up watching the series until today. No matter what has happened in life RT and RvB have been the constant source of smiles for me and it would not have been possible if you hadn't had the guts to try and make a show in a video game. Thank you for being awesome, can't wait to see what you have coming up soon. I will miss church but I look forward to any new charter you decide to bring life to.

      Thanks


      Varun Shah (bfett9)

      PS. I don't know what I said that made you block me on Twitter, but I am sorry! :P

      Also will you ever post the original death of church recording you made back in the day? Even as BluRay/DvD bonus?
