      We have an awesome cast, we have a bad ass crew, we have a great script and we have some amazing locations. This is happening. I know a lot of you have been waiting for news on this project, and I'm happy to tell you we start production this week.

      But, Day 5 isn't the only new project we're working on. Lots more big news coming this week. BIG. Stay tuned...

      Our newest RT Short was just released, watch it here. If you've already seen it, then you know it stars the most handsome man in all of Rooster Teeth to ever speak German and Spanish simultaneously, and also Chris.
      What you probably don't know is that it was directed by our friend Joe Nicolosi, who previously directed Burnie in the hilarious Kittywood Studios video. It was weird being directed by someone who works so much with cats. He would never give us screen direction, instead choosing to simply aim at the floor with a laser pointer until we would pounce on the little red dot. He also made Chris go in the litter box instead of the bathroom. Not sure why that was necessary but he said something about "method acting." Chris didn't seem to mind.
      Writing credit goes to the good @RevDrMarquis, whom you might recognize in the video as the worst dancer in all of history. He's the one that gave me the line about "hating your generation," because apparently he thinks I am the same age as his grandfather. I'm not, but I am dating his grandmother. We met on Tinder.
      Hope you enjoy it as much as a Warm Sack. Patent Pending.

      Hard to believe we are 11 years into our mission to create the world's best Justin Timberlake fan site, and we still haven't gotten that accomplished. (What, you didn't know that was how it all started?) I will say the distractions have been fun though. Red vs. Blue, Achievement Hunter, RT Shorts, the Podcast, Immersion, Animated Adventures, RWBY, just to name a few. Oh, and that little summertime get together known as RTX. I guess we've been pretty busy. Sorry, JT.

      One question we get a lot is, "Did you ever think Rooster Teeth would actually be a success?" I mean, it is a weird concept, right? A bunch of guys making jokes over video game footage and then cutting it together so it plays like a movie. Then posting the videos online and hoping people will actually find them and watch them - let alone enjoy them. I think you kind of sound like an arrogant jerk if you answer that question with anything other than "No, of course not." So at the risk of sounding like an arrogant jerk - Yes, I did! I absolutely did think Rooster Teeth would be a success, I just had no idea what success was going to look like.

      From the moment Burnie showed me the very first tests of Grif and Simmons talking, I thought, wow, there is really something magical about this. I bet there are other people out there that would like this, that have the same tastes as us. If we can put some of these videos out and people find them, that will be a huge "success." What I didn't foresee was how many people that would turn out to be. By the third episode a million people had downloaded Red vs. Blue. That was a crazy number considering no one was really watching video online yet. YouTube didn't even exist. But those kinds of online numbers seem so abstract anyway. The bigger number for us was 250.

      That was about the number of people that came to our first big screening at the Lincoln Center in New York City, back in January 2004. We were in awe at being invited there in the first place, but what really amazed us was that people had come to visit us from literally all over the world. There they were in the flesh - the people that were just usernames on our old forum - they're real and they came thousands of miles so we could all celebrate together. We realized then that we didn't just have a show that worked, we had a community. Suddenly, anything seemed possible.

      Over the course of these 11 years, we've tried to keep pushing our limits, testing what's possible. We've grown a lot, adding new people to our family and our community, and we've tackled bigger and more ambitious projects at each opportunity. In doing so, we've been constantly redefining for ourselves what success means. But, there is one guiding principle that we always try to follow: we make content that we like; that we believe in. Hopefully, if we do it well enough, we'll continue to find people like you that want to enjoy it with us. And that is the truest measure of success I can imagine.

      Thanks for 11 great years, RT staff, community, friends and family. Let's keep pushing the limits.

      Thanks to Gav for the photos. That's our old friend Graham Leggat in the center of the group shot. You may have heard Burnie talk about him on the podcast.

    • A Christmas Chat with my Son

      3 years ago

      matt

      Late afternoon on Christmas Day I walked into the living room to find my two sons, 9 and 6, happily playing games together in front of a brightly lit tree with a roaring fire in the fireplace. It was a heartwarming scene, until I smelled something awful. Rotten egg nog bad. As a concerned father I thought someone might have been so overwhelmed with Christmas present hysteria that he postponed a trip to the bathroom too long. Which lead to this memorable conversation, that I think really captures the spirit of the holidays in our home:

      Me: Whoa. Are you guys in here making stinky toots?
      My 9-year-old: You are.
      Me: No, I'm not.
      My 9-year-old: The denier is the supplier.
      Me: What? Where did you hear that?
      My 9-year-old: Your butt.

      And thus concluded a very special Christmas chat with my son. I hope your holidays were equally festive.

      Geoff just did both the nicest and unintentionally cruelest thing ever. I walk in late today, with my stomach audibly rumbling, and then he pops out of nowhere and goes, "Hey man - I got you something!" and then hands me a double-double cheeseburger from In-N-Out - which if you're not familiar with it, is probably the best burger ever created by mere mortals. In-N-Out is the essential burger place in California (particularly LA where I used to live), and they just opened a new one in Austin and everyone is freaking out about it. I would have eaten it in one bite, but unfortunately I am on the last day of this absurd all-juice diet. I can't actually remember why I started it, possibly due to low blood sugar memory loss, but I feel determined to finish it. So now I have been taunted by the world's most perfect burger and I'm even hungrier than I was before. Thanks for nothing Geoff! Now back to drinking liquified kale...

      Hey Matt, I am a fan of Rooster Teeth and all of its many branches of entertainment. Also, getting a hell of a lot of hype for Lazer Team. Anyway, I was gonna ask you about something related to RvB. I know you aren't doing the writing for the show anymore, but you are still playing a major role in the series. The question I wanted to ask waned to ask you, as well as Bernie and Miles, is that if it was okay for my friends and I to make an RvB spinoff machinima series of our own. It would be set in the same plane of existence as the characters in RvB, but it woulod be a completely seperate set of characters and story line and pretty much everything.

      I just found this article and the scientific paper that it's associated with and it reminded me of the premise or Lazer Team. The connection being that DNA markers are present in the suit pieces and activate and change to match the DNA of the wearer. Sounds like it's becoming a more legitimate story. @burnie

      Hello Mr Hullum. I have been working several years in various aspects of video production and post production, from production assistant, editor, DIT, grip, etc. I don't know if this is the right way to contact about this inquiry, but I am wondering if your company would need any help on sets as I can help out as a production assistant, editor, DIT, colorist, swing grip, etc, in any way I can.

      I shoot weddings a lot and have worked as a freelance stage manager/production assistant at a studio called InMotion Imagery here in Dallas that has three large sound stages with cycloramas and I primarily helped out with live satellite shots that air on CNN, MSNBC, ESPN, etc. I have also been a PA on this past season of American Ninja Warrior on NBC and a day player PA on BET's Meet the Manns.

      I'm always looking to help on sets and get more experience in post production as well, as I am trying to get into color grading with Resolve.

      Thank you for your time.

      I saw the picture of you on your first day of directing Lazer Team and your winning smile made my day. I just wanted to take this time to say just how proud all of us in the community are of you and of the cause to say we are all behind you, cheering you on. I cannot wait to see how this movie finishes up, most awaited movie of 2015 (even despite Avengers 2 among everything else). I know it'll go great and you'll go on to do even greater things. Just always remember when you're stressed or having a bad day that you've got a whole community rallying behind you, and at this point you could never disappoint us (even if you fueled all your effort into it), never forget that. We love all you guys at RT no matter what and we're in this with you to the end. Keep up the amazing work, you guys are my heroes

      Hi Matt, I have to do a case study for a my coursework at college. I wanted to do it on Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter. I wanted to know if you could help me out with my research. I need to know how you guys market everything that you do. This includes how and when you market your event. I would also like to know what you think your Unique Selling Point is. If you could help me out that would be great.

      Hey, Mr. Matt? I'm a senior in high school and I'm thinking of doing a road trip for spring break. A food related road trip. You know what that means? Creuz. Or Cruez. Not sure about the name or where it is, but I want me some dead animals, and the way you guys talk about it make it seem like the best dead animal serving establishment there is. So can I get the deets on the place, or are you gonna be like "Look at this fool" and not leave me something. A url, an address, whatever. Thanks if you do, you're busy and I understand if you don't. I'm seriously sending this to everyone, by the way. Hoping for at least one reply from someone somewhere.

      Hello,

      I'm a senior journalism and mass communication student at Samford University in Alabama and a regular RT/AH viewer. I'm working on creating a proposal for my senior thesis, and I thought it would be really interesting to do a case study on Rooster Teeth, especially with the recent Lazer Team funding.
      My thesis advisor suggested I try a different topic because I'd have difficulty getting access to you and company details, but I figured it couldn't hurt to reach out to you. I wouldn't need any very sensitive information, just some details about RT's history, growth, failed and successful projects, reasons behind some of the bigger company decisions.
      I know it's a big thing to ask, but if you would be willing at all, please just respond "Yes" by Friday, Sept. 5. If not, thanks for reading and keep doing what you do. I'm also going to send this request to a couple other RT people, just to cover my bases.

      Thanks,

      Hi, I don't know if you have got the Nintendo 64 Burnie got for you working but I work at a store that deals with retro games and I might be able to help. If you want to bring it in we can troubleshoot it an get it working for you.

      Quick advise so you don't have to come in, get a Q-tip dip it in Windex, clean the contacts on the game, and then dry it with another Q-tip. If that doesn't work then clean the contact again but don't dry it, put it into the system while its lightly moist and pull it and out several times then clean the contacts again.

      That doesn't work it might be a faulty piece, if you bring it in we can figure it out for you. Store name is Gamefellas The nearest one to your office I believe is the store in Highland mall, it is downstairs below the escalators. We have 4 stores though so we probably have one near you in Austin.

      I'd like to make a recommendation, I have a kindle fire hd that I use extensively, now flash player is not available on the device, so when I want to watch videos, I have to get out my laptop, or boot up my desktop. Now, amazon has an experimental player they use on their devices, but you have to be signed up with them for it to air( which works well) your videos. I don't know the parameters amazon requires, but could Rooster Teeth / Achievement Hunter investigate being included? I know I, and many other viewers would enjoy watching your programing more easily on our devices, rather then using our computers, or waiting a week to watch it on you tube which works well. Thank you.
