    • Rooster Teeth: Changes and Looking Ahead

      1 week ago

      matt

      Today has been a difficult day here. I wanted to share with you all the note that I sent to our staff earlier. We appreciate your continued support for everyone at Rooster Teeth and everyone who is moving on today.


      ---


      Hello everyone -Today has been a tough day at Rooster Teeth, and is unlike any other moment of organizational change we have experienced together. As we looked ahead at all of our upcoming opportunities and challenges, we had to make some difficult decisions about how we are organized. Unfortunately, this meant that earlier today we reduced the size of our team by approximately 13% overall. This decision is not reflective of anyone’s individual performance, and we’re thankful for all that our former colleagues have contributed. We will be doing everything we can to ease their transition, including helping them find their next opportunities.


      As discussed during your department meetings, our managers have adjusted their teams to meet the needs of our future. Our industry is evolving rapidly, and we have to evolve with it if we want to succeed. As we begin a new chapter, we have the opportunity to focus on what we do best: creating great content for our community and partners, supported by key lines of business including advertising, distribution, memberships, events, and e-commerce.


      We've accomplished a lot this year already: gen:LOCK and Immersion have both debuted successfully on TV, we’ve announced new content partnerships with DC, HBO Max and others, and we continue to produce the amazing programming that brings joy to our community every single day.


      We can look forward to more success along this path: continuing to grow our relationships within the WarnerMedia family and beyond, and finding new platforms where we can continue our pioneering creative work in gaming, animation, and comedy.


      With many teams moving to new office space tomorrow, we will meet briefly on Monday to discuss these changes further. I look forward to seeing you, as I always find renewed confidence, optimism, and excitement in our mission when we come together as a team.


      Finally, I want to wish all our former co-workers the very best. We’re thankful for the passion and creativity that they brought to Rooster Teeth, and grateful for the friendships we’ve formed. I have been fortunate to work closely with many of those leaving today, and I’m sad to say goodbye, but also incredibly proud of what we accomplished together.

    • Live Broadcasts and VOD for Podcasts are now Ad-Free for FIRST members

      1 month ago

      matt

      Hey everyone! 


      Got some real exciting news to share with you all today. Dude Soup did it. The Rooster Teeth Podcast is doing it tonight at 5:00 p.m. CT. And moving forward, all Rooster Teeth podcasts will be ad-read free for FIRST members! That means both the live broadcasts and the VOD on our site and apps will no longer contain ads if you are a FIRST member. Thank you for all of your support!


      Edit - Today's episode of Always Open will include ads for the FIRST release as it was recorded prior to this change. Next week's episode (Aug 26) will not have them included for the FIRST release. 

    • Introducing FIRST+ and new pricing

      1 month ago

      matt

      Hey everyone!


      Today we’re excited to introduce a new tier of FIRST with some amazing benefits our Community has wanted for quite a while. This new annual tier is called FIRST+ and with it you’ll receive all the same great benefits of a 12-month FIRST membership, plus…


      • FREE domestic standard SHIPPING and 50% off domestic expedited shipping from the Rooster Teeth Store

      • 50% off international standard shipping from the Rooster Teeth Store

      • A FREE copy of our new game Vicious Circle for Windows PC

      • A FREE copy of the Vicious Circle FOUNDER’S PACK

      • A unique FIRST+ star by your username

      • And more to come

      FIRST+ will be available starting August 12 for $119.99, charged on a yearly basis. We’ll have more fun and surprises for our FIRST+ members later down the road.


      In a previous journal post, I also announced we will be increasing the price of FIRST for our existing tiers. On August 12, 2019, at 12:00 p.m. CT, the following new rates will go into effect across all FIRST membership plans:

      • Monthly: $5.99

      • 6 Months: $32.99

      • Annual: $59.99

      The annual plan will also include a FREE copy of Vicious Circle for Windows PC when you sign up or renew your membership at the new annual rate (valid through the end of 2019). 


      All membership plans will be affected by this new pricing, including our grandfathered member rates. We are grateful for your continued support and hope you understand that it's time for us to move to a more uniform subscription price for all members. As a thank you, all our grandfathered users will also receive a FREE copy of Vicious Circle for Windows PC.

      As always, if none of these options are interesting to you right now, there are still many ways to support Rooster Teeth, watch our content, and engage with the Community. 


      And speaking of the Community, I also want to give a brief update on the new community site we’ve been working on. Some of you have been invited to the closed beta and have been helping us immensely in its development. We will be opening the site to the public later this year. In the meantime, if you want access to the beta NOW, fill out this form and you’ll be added!


      If you have questions about the pricing change, how or when the new rate will affect you, please check out this helpful FAQ or contact our community support team


      Thank you for making what we do possible! 


    • Exciting Rooster Teeth Announcements from SDCC (and Beyond)

      2 months ago

      matt

      Every year, tons of exciting announcements come out of SDCC. This year is especially exciting because Rooster Teeth made a few of those announcements. 


      In tonight’s panel, we released information and dates about some really cool stuff we have coming up over the next six months. However, before I jump into the news of what’s to come, I have some quick news about what has come and gone... and come again! FIRST members will be happy to see some familiar shows popping up on Rooster Teeth: the first season of Day 5 is available right now, the second season of Day 5 will release on a weekly basis starting August 20 (entire season available on October 8), and episodes of Crunch Time have already started rolling in on a weekly basis (entire season available on August 22).


      Now onto the news from SDCC! 


      First things first, Immersion is coming to Shark Week on Discovery on Saturday, August 3 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern! In this special episode, the Immersion crew answers a wide range of shark-fueled questions by taking some of the most iconic shark moments from pop culture history and bringing them to real life. 


      But wait, there’s another exciting thing happening on August 3 at 11:30 p.m. Eastern: gen:LOCK premieres on Adult Swim! For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, gen:LOCK is a mecha-anime style series starring Michael B. Jordan, Maisie Williams, Dakota Fanning, and David Tennant. And don’t worry – gen:LOCK will remain on Rooster Teeth while it airs on Adult Swim. 


      For those of you who have been waiting to watch RWBY Volume 6 on YouTube, the wait is almost over. The first episode of RWBY Volume 6 will be released on the Rooster Teeth Animation YouTube Channel on Sunday, October 12, with ensuing episodes going up each week after that. Tell your friends!


      “October” starts with an “O,” which is just the fancy intellectual name for “circle,” so it only makes sense that the much-anticipated first season of Arizona Circle will premiere on Rooster Teeth on October 23! FIRST members get early access, and it’ll be free for everyone else on Rooster Teeth seven days later.


      Continuing with the theme of much-anticipated premieres, RWBY Volume 7 premieres on Rooster Teeth on Saturday, November 2 for FIRST members! Everyone else can watch it for free on Rooster Teeth a week later.


      If you’re itching for even more RWBY, the iconic heroines will soon become playable in the hit game Smite! Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long will face their toughest challenge yet: The Battleground of the Gods. More info to come later this year.


      After the holidays, we’ll be back to wish you a Happy New Fear! No, that’s not a typo. That’s just my clever way of announcing that a new season of Haunter is coming to Rooster Teeth in January 2020! FIRST members get priority access to episodes, and everyone else can watch for free on Rooster Teeth a week later.


      Finally, I’d like to round out all these exciting announcements to let you know that our latest game, Vicious Circle, will be available on Steam for just $20 starting August 13! Vicious Circle is an uncooperative multiplayer shooter in which four mercenaries compete for loot against a terrifying monster who wants to kill them. Dirty tricks are the key to victory, and only one player can come out on top. It’s super fun and we can’t wait for you to experience it.

    • FIRST Membership Pricing

      2 months ago

      matt

      Hey, everyone -  Just wanted to make sure you heard about a bit of news from RTX.  


      In my Ask the CEO panel I let everyone know that later this summer we’re going to be increasing the price of our FIRST memberships, which will ensure that we can keep making cool stuff for our awesome community. If you want to lock in a really great deal on FIRST for a full year, you still have some time to sign up for our ridiculously cheap 12-month plan. We will have all of the details on the new pricing and benefits, including a new tier with a long requested perk we think a lot of people will really like, as well as answers to your questions later this month. 


      In the meantime, thank you for being a part of this great community and for all of the ways that you support us. We couldn’t do it without you.

    • Our response to the recent Reddit thread about RT Animation

      3 months ago

      matt

      We have seen the recent messages about Rooster Teeth’s animation studio related to crunch, and want everyone to know we take these concerns seriously. We acknowledge that we could have better managed our animation pipeline, and we apologize to all who have been affected.  


      Over the last several months we conducted a review and have taken several steps to improve communication and workflow to ensure we have a studio where people are happy to come to work every day. We are announcing today new measures on the road to improvement.


      Effective today, we are moving forward with a previously planned change in our producing and creative structure. Gray G. Haddock is stepping down as head of studio for animation to dedicate himself to a strictly creative role. With Gray’s help, we have been in the process of hiring a new production head of the department, who will be responsible for the overall producer hierarchy and staff management. We want to thank Gray for his hard work and dedication to growing the animation studio over these years, and are excited to continue working with him in this new capacity.


      Further, we are consulting with experienced leaders in the animation industry on our workflow, pipeline, production structure and other areas to enhance the workplace experience for our staff. Margaret M. Dean, the head of Ellation animation studios and president of Women In Animation, will consult with us and aid the search for a new studio lead.


      We’ll always continue to work on improvements to our workplace, and we appreciate everyone’s support and feedback on this ongoing mission.

    • RWBY Volume 6 on Rooster Teeth

      1 year ago

      matt

      Hey everyone!


      RWBY Volume 6 is coming up, and we couldn't be more excited. The show has changed in so many different ways since it premiered in 2013... but that's not the only thing that's changed.


      We have decided that RWBY Volume 6 will live only on Rooster Teeth. It’ll be available for FIRST members for one week, and then totally free to watch thereafter.


      Before you freak out, we want to explain exactly why we are doing this. It wasn't an easy decision – we know a lot of you enjoy watching on YouTube, and it's how a lot of you even found RWBY in the first place. But if you love this show, the best way to support RWBY is to watch it on Rooster Teeth.


      YouTube has evolved as a platform, and as we grow as a company we've found that YouTube isn't the right place anymore for some of our content. We won't stop putting shows on YouTube because it's still important to us in many ways, but in the end we don’t control our own destiny when we put our shows somewhere else.  Just one example: many of our videos, even some that are five years old, are getting demonetized for reasons ranging from inappropriate language, to using "unusual capitalization." Heck, even a video we made ABOUT how to make a successful YouTube video got demonetized.


      9T4zQ2l.png


      We've always believed that we should make the content we want to make, but by doing this, we take a hit by continuing to focus on YouTube as a platform, as it does not benefit our growth. We are unable to make money on videos for reasons beyond our control, and we want to stay true to what RWBY and our other shows should be.


      We and an amazing team of engineers have also invested a ton of time, energy, and money in our own platform to make the viewing experience as good on Rooster Teeth as anywhere else. And along with RWBY’s release this fall, we’ll also be unveiling some much-requested features on Rooster Teeth, including the following:

      • Closed-captioning support for RWBY Volume 6, and captions for other major new animation releases coming soon after

      • Chromecast support

      • Tap to rewind and fast-forward

      • And last but not least, in-app video downloading for paying members

      Pretty cool, huh? And just in case you missed it up there, watching videos onRoosterTeeth.com and our mobile apps is COMPLETELY FREE. RWBY will be available COMPLETELY FREE to watch on Rooster Teeth one week after the premium release.


      This means that a week after the premiere on October 27th, you can watch RWBY on Rooster Teeth without even signing up. And you want to know the best part? THIS is what helps support our show. Plus, there's no better place to watch RWBY than with the biggest RWBY fans in the world, right?


      We are so excited to bring you all home, and to kick off our 6th volume of RWBY in a huge way. We couldn't do this without your support, so please join us (on RoosterTeeth.com and the apps) this fall for the premiere!

    • RvB is Back and It's Going to be Fucking Awesome (+ A Schedule Update)

      1 year ago

      matt

      Hey everyone - hopefully you’re already aware that the 16th season of Red vs. Blue is premiering for FIRST members on Sunday, April 15 at 8:00 a.m. CDT. It’s going to be our sixteenthiest season ever. The show is now old enough to drive a car or something. It’s going to be awesome, just watch.


      If you’re not yet a FIRST member, you should correct that, but in the meantime let me tell you about how we’re going to be releasing this show for everyone to see.


      We have a long history of trying out new things with Red vs. Blue. That sounds oddly sexual but it’s not. What I mean is, our most loyal viewers have a long history of watching it on the Rooster Teeth site. In fact, there was literally nowhere else to watch it until season 6. Caboose hadn’t even invented YouTube yet. I think Woodrow Wilson was still president. It was a totally different world back then. Possibly much better.


      So, things change, and then sometimes they change back again in delightful ways. With our new and improved site and mobile apps, there’s even more reason to watch Red vs. Blue right here at its original home. Because of that, we have decided to release Red vs. Blue episodes free to the public on the Rooster Teeth site and mobile apps a mere one week after they go up for FIRST members. They will be posted to YouTube at some point in the future, but the only way to watch them for free one week after their initial release is on the Rooster Teeth site and mobile apps.


      We are committed to making our new viewing experience the best it can be, and bringing our community together on the same platform is a huge priority for us. This new season of Red vs. Blue is the perfect way to experiment with that. As it stands, this is the only show with this release schedule – our plan is to leave RWBY’s schedule the same as it has been.


      If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below. If you have praise and adoration, you can leave a comment too. Or maybe combine both, like “How can you be so awesome?” Just go nuts.


      We’re excited about making our site and apps the best place to watch Rooster Teeth content, and your feedback is crucial in that process. Thanks everyone and can’t wait to watch the show with you this Sunday.


      - Matt


      P.S. - Along with having a new site and mobile apps, we'll be doing an hour long watch party for Red vs. Blue Season 16 Episode 1 at 10:00 a.m. CDT on Sunday April 15! Head on over to roosterteeth.com/live and watch with the rest of the community.

    • Lazer Team Is Now on Rooster Teeth FIRST!

      1 year ago

      matt

      With the Lazer Team 2 premiere right around the corner, it seems like the perfect time to announce that the original Lazer Team is now on the Rooster Teeth site! Yes, FIRST members can watch our first movie in all of its glory, over and over again. It’s good to be home.


      xiCXRTT.jpg


      Once you get caught up on the first Lazer Team, don’t forget to pick up tickets for a Lazer Team 2 screening near you. If you don’t get a chance to see it in theaters, don’t worry. It’ll be hitting YouTube Red on November 22!

    • Lazer Team 2 Is Coming to Theaters!

      1 year ago

      matt

      One of the best times I’ve ever had a Rooster Teeth was getting to watch our first movie, Lazer Team, in theaters with all of you. After all, it wouldn’t have been made without the support of the community, and being able to watch it on the big screen together was an unforgettable experience.


      That’s why we’re super excited to announce that Lazer Team 2 will be coming to theaters in November, and tickets will be on sale tomorrow!


      Lazer Team 2 screenings start the week of November 13 across the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, and begin November 19 in the UK. You and your boot group won’t want to miss this, so get ready to pick up some tickets before they sell out. Maybe I’ll see you there!


      Keep an eye on the site and on Rooster Teeth’s social media tomorrow for more details, including links to buy tickets. And don’t forget, Lazer Team 2 will be coming to YouTube Red on November 22!


      Update on 10/27: Check out Daniel's Journal for ticketing links!

      Hey Matt,


      Longtime fan from up north here- I know you're probably busy as hell, but if you get a chance at some point, my production team just finished its first short film and if you have the time, I'd really appreciate any feedback you could give us. I think your more honed comedic sensibilities could be a big help in giving us a sense of what works & what doesn't in the film. Runtime is 11min (fair warning), but it plugs along at a good pace. 


      Have a great day man, hope to hear from ya.

      Hey there Matt!! I just wanted to say I'm super excited for RTX London in October, I sincerely hope they'll be another Founding Fathers panel for that one as well like the ones you've had in Sydney and Austin. Obviously the RWBY Panel would rank the highest on my must-see list for the event, but I would also love to see you, Burnie, Geoff, Gus and Joel having a banter about random stuff. To me you are all such wonderful people and... To be honest I've completely forgotten what I was gong to say next! My mind has drawn up a blank, not good! Anyways I wish you all well, and sorry for the random post, as I imagine you no doubt have like ten thousand and one more things to do right now, than worry about the likes of me.

      Matt,
      I spoke to you regarding the song I wrote, "The Ballad of the Infamous 535". This is a better version than the one you were given. (I started re-recording it shortly after I sent a copy to Chelsea) It's still not as polished as some of my other recordings, but its nature as a old-style folk tune allows for such roughness until I finally have a reason to redo it. https://soundcloud.com/brianfischer-2/the-ballad-of-the-infamous-535-demo

      Hope you enjoy the music!

      Hey Matt. I have a few things to say/ask.

      1. RTX was so awesome and a blast! I hope I can make it next year. (And maybe get a VIP pass or be a Guardian (Props to those people for making RTX so amazing and run smoother than I thought) and arriving in Austin at least 2 days before and leaving the day after or 2 days after RTX because I missed so much sidequest fun and I kind of wanted to discover the city more).

      2. I was wondering what will happen to the Monty Memorial now since RTX is now over. I am not sure I heard what would happen to it.

      Hi Matt!

      I have a question for you about food, odd though it may be. You see I am a chef, and have noticed that since you've moved to your new location you don't have a cafe or some such to sustain you all throughout the day. I know, only normal human beings need survive on more than booze and rice crispy treats. However, I wanted to know if you had plans to create an in-house spot for chow?

      How about if Church said that to like Simons and Simons tries to tell Sarge who ignores him and then 'comes up with the idea himself'. Then what if when she did, Lopez sounded like Church, then everyone was really creeped out and Lopez says a shit load of really mean stuff to all the reds that Sarge will just blame on the Blues. Then Doc Gray turns the Spanish back on. Just think of the funny possibilities.

      Matt,
      You may not read this but there is a girl in Rhode Island that is a huge fan of all things RT. Last year she was diagnosed with chronic Lyme Disease and has been unable to do the things a normal girl should be able to do. Tomorrow, Wednesday May 13, is her 16th birthday. She will not be able to celebrate it as she should due to her disease. Furthermore, tomorrow she will begin using IV bags that will make her feel like she has the flu. I have talked very briefly with her and she asked me to contact you to thank you (for what exact purpose I do not know), and said to ask for a temporary follow on Twitter @Lindsey_Clark11 or a friend request on this site. Her RT username is lindsey_11. What I am trying to do with this message is make her tomorrows featured user, but I don't know if I'm too late to make that deadline. I encourage you to please read the rest of her story as she said it on her Tumblr loserwithlyme.tumblr.com/

      Hey, Matt:
      I have a problem with the RT Store, but it wouldn't let me contact shop owner. I didn't know if you were the person to talk to or not, but if you aren't, would you mind letting me know who it is I should talk to. I am trying to track my order progress, but for whatever reason, it won't let me. I'm clicking the order number, but nothing happens. If you could get back to me by replying here, or sending me a message, that would be great.
      Thanks!

      Hia! So... you know the Warm Fuzzies thing. Welp, I thought to myself, "Hey why not send it two of my best friends, and an actual Rooster Teeth 'cast and crew'?"
      So, yeah. I just want to honestly thank you for all the work you've done in Rooster Teeth, I can't wait to see all the content you guys have in store (literally and figuratively) this year! :D

      Happy Valentine's Day, Matt! Have an awesome day!! smiley11.gifsmiley11.gifsmiley9.gif

      Hey Matt, I received the Lazer Team update email today and the announcement of Melbourne to be the premier international city. If I may make a suggestion, the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) is on between July 30th and August 16th. MIFF has a film market attached to it, assuming you will have this regions distribution through Hanabee, it might pay off to enter into the festival to attract attention of other region distributers.

      Matt, I want to just say... I'm for the passing of Monty. It must be the worse thing imaginable. I didn't think in a million years that this would happen. Despite the fact that I've not met him before I cried my eyes out. When I had first heard about it I had thought it was a hoax. I had tried my damntest to find a way not to believe this til I got on roosterteeth. I can't imagine what you guys are going through. but my condolences to you and Everyone there. We Love You, Monty!

      Dear Matt, I don't really know if this will mean anything substantial to you, but I just discovered RWBY, just flipping thru some anime channels, and was immediately hooked, upon further investigating the genius behind this project I was left heartbroken to hear of the loss of your friend and colleague.
      I am truly saddened and wish to convey my condolences for you and everyone at Rooster Teeth, as well as the family he's left behind.
      I hope after some time you will find the fortitude to continue on producing such great works!

      Dear matt hullum,

      hello sir my name is Taran Worrell, and I am trying to contact you because simply I want to ask you if there was any way to get any kind of position at rooster teeth. I know you must get hundreds and hundreds of messages a day pertaining to this topic and are quite sick of seeing them. When I say any kind of position I mean any thing I would be happy being the coffee boy for the whole office being payed two dollars a day and I am not exaggerating at all about the coffee boy thing. I know you probably wont care but I just want to leave El paso and put every thing here behind me. I feel like if I stay here I am just going to end up in a dead end job at some fast food place unhappy and just wanting to end it all, But if there was any way that I could work for rooster teeth then I wouldnt be happier. In short I am willing to drop every thing in my life to work for your company in any way shape or form possible at all.

      Sincerely,
      Taran Hunter Worrell.

      P.S. I understand that this is a short message but i mean every thing I have said above and I truly hope that you get this. and thank you if you do. also my email is worrell.taran.hunter@gmail.com if you do wish to reply to this message then please use that email. I had tried to message you but seeing as you are only accepting messages from friends i feel that this is the next best course of action.

      Dear Crew, I've watched things that Monty has been making since I was 14. Which was a while ago, anyhow, I just want to let everyone know that I am praying for His wife and family. This is truly devastating.
      There truly is nothing that can describe the pain and loss of a loved one.
      I really felt like I knew Monty personally though I never met the man. I will miss him very dearly. My deepest sympathies to his family.
      I'm so so sorry for your loss. Mr. Oum was a creative guru and I could see that he was an amazing friend.
      God bless.

      -Caleb
