    • Red vs. Blue: Goodbye and Hello

      2 years ago

      Miles Miles

      Hey there.


      This is now the eighth time I’ve sat down to try and type out this journal. It’s probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to write… and I’ve killed, like... a lot of innocent fictional characters. It’s super long and mushy, but it’s got some really exciting news and -- well, I’m getting ahead of myself. I guess I’ll just start by saying...


      I’ve been working on Red vs. Blue for six years.


      I don’t think I’ve ever fully comprehended that sentence until this very moment. Like, I was positive it was four, maybe five, but… I started machinimating as an intern the same day filming began on Season 9 six years ago. You can tell because Tucker’s head-bobs are TERRIBLE.


      And yet somehow, despite my mediocre machinima skills and tendency to lose rechargeable battery packs, I was given an opportunity that completely changed my life: The chance to write and direct a show I loved. You better believe I took that opportunity and ran with it the very best I could.


      Over the past six years I got to help tell the story of how a bunch of losers became heroes. There were times when they fought with each other and times when they worked together better than the fiercest Freelancers. There were mysterious walls, heartbreaking audio logs, adorable killing machines, forgotten colonies, civil wars, TWO LOPEZES, future cubes, new recruits, rebel leaders, wimpy generals brave generals, mercenaries, back-stabs, space prisons, alien relics, crazy doctors, talking guns, A.I. fragments, key-swords, flamethrowers, SANTA, avalanches, train fights, death towers, the most powerful suit of armor ever designed by man, and at the center of ALL OF IT stood the Reds and Blues. I have done so much more in the world of Red vs. Blue than I ever thought I could… and I’m happy.


      I’m happy to have had the chance to learn from Burnie and Matt, I’m happy to have worked with so many talented people, and I’m happy to say that it’s now someone else’s turn.


      A lot of viewers pointed out that VIC’s monologue at the end of Season 14 felt like a goodbye, and in a way, it was. Season 14 was a celebration of RvB; it was a season that allowed us to just have fun with the universe and its characters and to do things we’d never have been able to pull off in a traditional season. It also served as a sort of audition. I’d reached a point where I felt as though I could no longer take the Reds and Blues to new and interesting places without it feeling forced, so we began the search for a new writer and director with new ideas and a passion for storytelling.


      We found him.


      You might know Joe Nicolosi from any number of projects he’s worked on in the past, though you probably know him from his stop-motion RvB episode “The Brick Gulch Chronicles”. Not only did he deliver a completely unique and out-of-the-box-canyon approach to Red vs. Blue, he captured the voices of our beloved characters perfectly. Joe’s also an absolute turbo-nerd and I love him (but don’t tell him I said that). I promise I’m not leaving RvB entirely. Just as Matt and Burnie helped guide me in my early days of writing RvB, I’ll be working with Joe so that we can make his story the absolute best it can be, and trust me... it’s going to be one hell of a ride. I hope you’ll all welcome him to the site and get to know him better. Be sure to check out his journal here!


      Season 15 picks up not far from where Season 13 left off. Kyle and Josh are firing up their Xboxes, Nico and David are tuning their instruments, and Joe Nicolosi is bringing new heroes, new villains, and a brand new adventure with him. I can’t wait for you all to see it.


      Thank you all for everything. Whether you’re a stupid Red or a dirty Blue, I love you.

    • My Top 5 Introductions to Anime!

      2 years ago

      Miles Miles

      Hey guys!


      For those of you who've been following Fan Service, you'll know we recently talked about which anime series we'd recommend to people who've never watched anime before, but are curious about where they should start! We decided on The Boy and The Beast, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and EITHER Cowboy Bebop or Samurai Champloo. Now, before we came to those conclusions, we had to come up with some lists of our own, so here's mine (in no particular order)!


      1. Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood

      If you've always thought cartoons are just for kids, this series will prove you wrong. It's not the shortest series, but it's an epic journey that follows two brothers on their quest to right their wrongs and repair their bodies after a terrible alchemy accident. The story gets WAY crazier from there, but I think what's great about this show is its variety of tone and relatable themes. You'll get action, comedy, drama, and even a splash of horror with FMAB, and even though the world and characters are all fantastical, their internal struggles and relationships are extremely realistic. Family, duty, friendship, and love are things I think we can all relate to, and FMAB has them in spades.


      2. Cowboy Bebop

      This is the show that got me into anime. Period. Like... I just fucking love it, man.


      (Okay, now that that's out of the way.)


      Bebop is an older anime, but I'd argue the style and characters keep it feelin' fresh. It's a show about space cowboys hunting bounties that's supported by an INCREDIBLE jazz and western score. This show is bittersweet, through and through. Don't expect the hero to always win, don't expect the guy to get the girl, expect a hard and lonely journey with rare yet beautiful moments of levity. At it's core, Cowboy Bebop is a story about a man trying to run from his past, while his past is actively seeking him out. I think what makes it a great intro anime is that a lot of the ingredients the show is playing with are pretty familiar to western audiences. Oh, and it's also got some incredible action sequences. OH, and not to get spoilery, but I highly recommend watching the end credits every time. The song that plays is called Real Folk Blues and I'll say that after hearing it twenty-something times at the end of every episode, it made one moment in the series absolutely breathtaking.


      3. The Boy and The Beast

      I really don't want to tell you much about this film. It's a recent release, the animation is gorgeous, and the story is beautiful. A boy is in need of a father figure and a beast is in need of a pupil. The two must learn to work with one another and learn as much as they can from each other. It'll make you fucking cry. Again, themes are incredibly relatable here and it's a much smaller time commitment than starting a series.


      4. The Devil is a Part-Timer

      Okay, so the number one reason I'm recommending this is because it's simply a comedy (and a damn good one at that). There is no crazy, heart-breaking stuff, there is no super convoluted plot (though the show does poke fun at them), this show is STRAIGHT UP designed to make you laugh. The pilot opens with what appears to be a stereotypical westerner's idea of what anime is: Magical beings and fantastical lands, an epic battle for survival against demon armies, a list of what appear to be mini-boss style antagonists that our heroes must defeat by the time the show is over!


      Yeah, fuck that shit.


      Within minutes, Devil sets up a fantasy world, then throws it away, placing our characters in modern day Tokyo, confused and... hilariously ill-equipped to deal with our society. Lord Satan gets a job at McDonald's  aaaaaand hilarity ensues. There is a subplot that keeps things interesting throughout the series, but don't expect any groundbreaking stuff from it. It provides for some interesting character relationships, but beyond that there's not much. I will say, I watched this one in Japanese and the VAs fucking slayed me. I actually had to pause an episode because I was crying with laughter. Good shit, yo.


      5. Erased

      So this was a 12-episode story we followed during the pilot season of Fan Service, and it's wonderful. It's essentially a murder mystery/character drama with one mystical twist: the main character has the ability to travel through time... but not entirely at his own free will. The story we're left with is one of a young man who must solve a mystery in the past in order to prevent catastrophe in the future. It has some of the most touching moments I've seen in an anime and deals with some very real-world issues (such as child abuse, mental illness, and single parenting). This show actually got my MOM to watch anime, so that's pretty impressive. It's not always the most unpredictable show, but I think it's execution is superb.


      So yeah! If you're looking for places to start, those would be my recommendations! Hope you guys enjoy!

    • Beef Barley Soup Recipe

      2 years ago

      Miles Miles

      So I tweeted about a new recipe I tried out tonight and a ton of people asked me for it. I found it online some time ago but finally got around to cooking it today and I am ALL about it.


      Check-check-it, yo.


      Beef Barley Soup

      Serves 8

      Ingredients

      • 2 pounds stew meat (nicely marbled beef chunks)
      • salt and pepper
      • 2 tablespoons oil
      • 10 cups water
      • 3 mounded tablespoons good quality beef base
      • 3 stalks celery (about 2 cups), chopped
      • 2 onions, chopped
      • 5 cloves garlic, minced
      • 1 large potato, peeled and shredded, about 2 cups
      • 3-4 large carrots, peeled and shredded, about 2 cups
      • 1 cup barley, rinsed

      Instructions

      1. Generously salt and pepper the beef. In a large stockpot, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
      2. When it is very hot, add about 1/3 of the meat. Brown for about 1-2 minutes, then turn to brown the other side. Remove to a plate when it is browned on all sides.
      3. Repeat with remaining meat in 2 more batches. (If you add it all at once it will steam the meat instead of browning it--not what you want.)
      4. When all the meat is browned, add all the meat back to the pot with 10 cups of water. Add 3 healthy tablespoons beef stock concentrate.
      5. Add the chopped celery, onions, and garlic. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to medium-low. Simmer for about 2 hours with the lid on.
      6. When the meat is tender and you can break it apart easily with a wooden spoon, add the shredded potato and carrots. Bring to a boil, then continue to simmer on low for another 30-45 minutes, or until the carrots are tender.
      7. Add 1 cup of barley. Bring to a boil, then reduce to low. Cook for another half hour, or until barley is tender.
    • RvB14: Making Mercs [SPOILERS]

      3 years ago

      Miles Miles

      Club, Call, and Consequences: The three episodes of Red vs. Blue that I still can't believe got made.


      Howdy folks! I sincerely hope you guys enjoyed what we've been internally referring to as "Mercs" here at RT Animation. It's been a labor of love long in the making, and watching comments pour in over the past three weeks has been an absolute delight.


      Bet'cha thought he wasn't gonna make it, huh? :P


      Well these three episodes represent just one of the many stories I've imagined for Locus, Felix, and Siris, and I do sincerely hope we get to tell the rest of those stories one day, but for now, I'm still overjoyed with the way this mini-series turned out.


      I cannot thank our production team enough. Literally every department that touched Mercs tried something new: new art style, new lighting style, new aspect ratio, new animation style, new models, new rigs, new music, new approach to sound design, new approach to editing, SERIOUSLY this entire project was one giant test for ourselves. We all set out to try something new, and god damn it, I couldn't be more proud of everyone.


      The first episode fight alone took months of planning. Making sure animation, editing, compositing, and sound were all in time with the awesome music David Levy created was a huge undertaking. I'm fairly certain the entire team wanted me dead at one point or another throughout production and I don't blame them in the slightest.


      I'd also like to thank our voice actors. Derek Mears played a wonderfully intimidating Spanish Crime Lord/Dad of the Year, David Jennison was the perfect little shit of a son (sorry we killed your character... again), and working with Chris Sabat was an absolute dream come true. That dude is the BEST kind of weird and brought Mason Wu to life in ways no one else could. And of course, I must thank my partner in crime: Gray Haddock. You're the green to my orange, the cloak to my light shield, the scariest brick wall of a bounty hunter, and one hell of a department head. Love ya buddy.


      Like I said, every part of the pipeline stepped their game up this year, and I'm honored to work alongside them (COMP TEAM MAKES DREAMS COME TRUE), but I have to give a huge shout out to the team that is so easily forgotten: our producers.


      Even though the project was only three episodes long, the amount of coordination and organization needed to pull it off was astronomical. EVERYTHING for this show had to be built from scratch and in addition to the entire internal team, we also worked with outside modelers, artists, and riggers throughout the course of production. Our producers kept us on track, gave us clear goals to shoot for, and helped make this an incredibly smooth production.


      Oh, and it turns out our fight performers are also legendary dancers.


      So yeah... we learned a lot on this production, and we had a LOT of fun making it, but now for the question everyone has been asking: What happened to the Mercs?


      We all know where Locus and Felix ended up, but this trilogy didn't answer what happened to Siris. It didn't show their descent into darkness like many people predicted... if anything, it just raised more questions. I know for some that's probably frustrating, but it's the tale I set out to tell; an open and close story with a bittersweet ending that asks the question "Did we do the right thing tonight?" There's no way to cover the entire history of these guys in just three episodes, so for now, let your imagination run wild! The point of these three episodes was to show that people change. Someone you may hate today may not have been such a bad guy years before you met them. We're all shaped by the events of our lives and the decisions that come with them. For Isaac, Samuel, and Mason, this was just one of many events that will shape who they inevitably become.


      Until next time... remember to check your comms, use codenames, and never ever threaten Mason Wu's family.

    • RvB14: Something Big is Coming

      3 years ago

      Miles Miles

      Hellooooo beautiful people!


      I hope you have all been enjoying Red vs. Blue: Season 14! It's been an interesting season to say the least. We've seen classic Halo machinima through the eyes of Jordan Cwierz and James Willems, hilarious stop-motion at the hands of Joe Nicolosi, and this past weekend we were treated to a live-action explosion-fest thanks to Freddie Wong. It's been an absolute pleasure watching our guest writers play around in our universe and seeing Josh and Kyle continue to kill it as machinima directors... but now it's my turn to have a little fun.


      This weekend is Episode 9... and it's going to be very, very different.




      Episode 9 is the first of a three-part story arc, and we're very excited to say that it will premiere Saturday at 2:30pm CT at the Red vs. Blue Panel at RTX2016. This arc is one of the biggest stories of the season and we will be talking about it in depth at the Red vs. Blue Panel. Because of this, we will also be including the episode IN THE TWITCH STREAM of the Red vs. Blue Panel! Believe me when I say, you do not want to miss this episode, so be sure to attend the panel or watch the stream! It will be one of the first things we show!


      This episode is also going to have some rather large reveals (and probably not the ones you expect), and we would hate for fans who are unable to catch the panel to have it spoiled for them, so please be conscious of others when posting about it online. Take this as a bit of a warning, if you are unable to catch the episode on Saturday, you may want to avoid certain threads and forums until you can watch the episode yourself.


      The episode will be released for RT First Members (previously known as Sponsors) at the regular time, Sunday at 12:00pm CT, and Monday (12:00pm CT) for RT Site members (THOUGH YOU SHOULD REALLY TRY TO SEE IT SUNDAY, WINK WINK). Our team has been working incredibly hard on this piece and we're all excited to share it with you! We hope to see you at RTX.

    • The Chorus Trilogy Steelbook Box Set

      3 years ago

      Miles Miles

      I'm a bit of a collector.


      I've got props and posters from all my favorite stories, I refuse to buy console games digitally so I can look at my library with pride, and I'm pretty sure I own the special edition of every game Bungie's made since Halo.


      So imagine my surprise when I was told we'd be making a Chorus Trilogy Box Set... a steelbook box set.

      ciKyR0t.png

      Spoiler alert, I looked something like this:

      giphy.gif


      To this day, I still can't believe I was lucky enough to work on Red vs. Blue, let alone be able to say I directed an entire trilogy. Having all three movies together in such a cool package is like a dream come true.


      Normally we're not able to get away with super abstract cover art, but because this piece was so special, we were given the green light to have a lot of fun with it. I really dig simple, minimalist artwork, and wanted to incorporate that style into the cover art. I pitched the idea of the three towers to the designer and he shot back with a few ideas of his own. The collaborative result is something that I think looks pretty damn cool (especially the subtle green and orange markings on the back... wink wink).

      QaegKSL.png
      v5N0sux.png
      Of course, there's always a bittersweet realization when a collector's edition comes out, "But I already bought these movies when they were first released." Believe me, I know that pain. In case you're worried about missing out on additional content, I can go ahead and let you know that the content on these new discs is identical to the Blu-rays already released (note: there is more BTS content on the Blu-Rays than DVDs). No additional extras, just a limited edition steel case and unique disc art.

      5TcVuEu.png

      Still, to everyone who bought seasons 11, 12, and 13 when they were first released... thank you so, so much. We can't do the things we do without your support, and yes, that especially includes financial support. I'd been told several times that a box set wasn't going to happen, but after seeing the success of all three seasons, someone up top made the call to go for it, and it's thanks to you!


      The box set is currently available for preorder on Amazon and will be released JUNE 28th, 2016.


      So, if you're a fan that hasn't grabbed these movies yet (or if you only have them on DVD), by all means, pick up a copy! If you already own the movies but want this badass new bundle... well, you can always gift your old ones to someone else, right? You're such a good friend.


      Thank you again for everything. I hope you guys dig this special release and I'll be seeing you soon for RvB14!

      It's a beautiful Saturday morning here in Austin, Texas. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and I can think of no better way to spend the day... than to stay inside and watch dumb internet videos.


      Might I suggest our new Sponsor Play series where me and @Kyle play Metal Gear Solid V?

    • Almightypop asked Miles a question

      ive noticed you been streaming more recently, are you ever going to make any type of schedule for your streams?

      Answered: Feb 19, 2016

      Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you view it), I really don't have the luxury of a normal week. My schedule changes day-to-day, so I'll likely never regulate my streams. I just kind of do it on the side for fun. Sorry!

      -Dammit Miles why do have to make me feel sorry for Cinder WHY!?


      -Oh so the silver eyes hurt maidens huh Salem?..Maybe you should have told Cinder that 8 MONTHS AGO!!!!


      -Wow this guys so crazy that Neo would be like "dude take a chill pill"


      -Who the hell is this?...Seriously who the fuck are you?...Are you a hobbit?


      -Seriously can Nora just pick an eye colour already?!


      -Ren is instantly RWBY's new hot topic.


      -That fight was awesome!


      -Ok Ruby Jaune's shirt is not that funny...seriously you can stop laughing...see this is why I don't like you.


      - (puts on war helmet) Ok RWBY I'm ready for the feels bring it...BRING IT!!!! (three seconds later) currently crying in the corner hugging a Pyrrha plushie.


      -Ah that explains why its taken 8 months to get to Mistral, DAMMIT Nora!


      -Awww sad Weiss is sad.

      Miles this got deleted with the site crash so if you saw this already sorry.


      I am hoping Pyrrha's diadem was not used in making Jaune's new gear. Milo Akouo is fine but the Diadem feels like a step too far and should be returned to Pyrrha's family.

      I have seen the Design on the shield and I am hoping that is a replication since its so much sharper then the original design Pyrrha wears. Also it looks bigger as well.

      But the Diadem..it feels wrong for it to be used like that.


      I also hope Pyrrha is coming back which is why its been so much of a non-emotional event in regards to her you want us to feel it HARD when we hear "Hello again." 

      If Pyrrha is coming back the way you are handling her makes sense you arent trying to be too in our faces so the impact is bigger but if she isnt and I really hope this isnt true then Pyrrha isnt being treated right.

      If Pyrrha really is gone we need a scene from JN_R just expressing themselves on that fact otherwise it feels like she is a discard plot tool. That is why I am hoping she is in fact alive because then some of the frankly odd ways of handling her passing makes sense but if she isnt then...yeah.


      I am sorry I am not sure I am getting my point across well and I am not sure how to. I guess I will end this saying I hope you guys havent really killed her and all you are doing is a magicians sleight of hand making us think she is dead when she really isnt.

      I'm quite surprised that you even accepted my friend request months ago. I was expecting a "Surely you jest?" sort of response, but okay.

      Also quick but dumb theory after watching the Vol 4 clip and seeing Jaune not wearing his new(er) armor: he accidentally broke his fly or ripped his pants and tore off a big piece of Ruby's cape to cover it up before he embarrasses himself in front of Grimm or the enemy.

      Dude, your writing is such a huge inspiration to me. Rvb 11, 12, and 13 were all so incredible and the three week Rvb 14 arc was so amazing. Your voice work is also really good. Man, don't ever stop entertaining us, I dont think we could handle it.

      So today on the Consequences of Pyrrha Niko's death we reached 9000 posts which is as far as I know far more then any other RWBY forum on the first page, there might be one with more but I am unaware of it, I thought you should know.

      I still fully believe in you, Kerry, Gray and everyone else who worked on RWBY. You made a Volume of RWBY almost entirely without Monty, and it turned out great. Sometimes you have to change how things are done, or have a few weeks pause between episodes. Better to have quality over quantity. I also have heard that you guys had to make decisions that not everyone agreed with. Making hard decisions is part of life, and you guys certainly have had to make a lot of those in the past year.


      In all, thank you for your hard work. You will continue to have my support.

        No thanks. Sometimes the best way to respond to a situation is to say nothing. Honestly, how can Miles or anyone at Rooster Teeth properly respond to this? Even assuming that Rooster Teeth is actually right in this case, how do you say anything without pissing off everyone? They can't hire Shane back - he closed that door fast. Most importantly, it's none of our business. We don't own them, they are a private company.


        Also, here is what Monty's brother had to say on it.

        The best points that I've found are on Reddit, with some really well thought out answers. I highly recommend looking at it.

      Winter Grein Schnee= Winter green

      Weiss Gae Schnee=Wise Guy

      William Thyme Schnee= Will tell time a bit of a stretch on the last one but william isnt easy to use.

      So Miles, i remember you guys were discussing the Tokyo Anime Award Festival on Fan Service. Well i figured i could give you an update on the award winners here: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2016-03-21/lo...


      When you guys talked about the nominees on the show you kinda glossed over "Shirobako" as none of you had seen it. Well, as you can see, it beat all other nominees in the television category(including One Punch Man). This anime was one of my personal favorites from last year and im not ashamed to admit it is one of only 3 shows to make me cry out of happiness. the writing and character development on this show caught me so off guard. it is absolutely brilliant and one of the most satisfying viewing experiences i have ever had. It is so worth your time especially considering the show is all about producing anime and ever aspect of the story is based on true events that the staff actually experienced and all the characters are based on real people. As someone who creates an amazing show with a fantastic team yourself i think you would enjoy this look into the anime industry in japan. Im hoping you watch so when Fan Service hopefully comes back you can talk about it in depth. It can teach anyone who wants to write so much about character development and story pacing. It also is nearly free of the tropes that tend to bog down most slice of life. You wont be disappointed.

      Thank you for accepting my friend request and for the shout out on the Fan Service podcast, been a huge fan of Rooster Teeth and it means alot to me that I got to give something back to you guys. Truth be told I was also going to buy The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya dvds for you but they are both very expencive and difficult to find after FUNi bought the rights.

      I really think you have a great podcast in the making, I love the idea of anime fans who also work in animation talking about it. My only query is how will it work during crunch at productions? I would absolutely give you guys some anime now and then and say what you made of it for a segment I call Nye Buys. But i wont raise hopes up.

      Thank you so much, and watch this space as I have a special art gift on the way within the next few weeks and please please please lets get the green light.

      And before I forget, no, I am not related to Bill Nye. Ive said it to my science class and ill say the same now.

      I will be honest I think Pyrrha's death is a con and that we were presented with a series of events that were made to look like she had died but in reality hadnt. There is several things about the scene that stand out as odd and strange. I dont think presenting the evidence here is acceptable so I will refrain.

      I am hoping you are playing us and the writing going on will create a drama I will love wondering if Pyrrha can truly be saved or not.


      But one critic I have been seeing a lot of is the lack of simply character dialogues that would enhance the show. Such as commenting on Ironwood looking for the people who stole Atlas Paladins from painting the town, or even talking about the breach.

      I know some of this is the limitations you are under but a common critic is the lack of discussion on the events going on around the characters even when the events should be talked about.


      Cheers Miles to another Season of RWBY may the writing go well.

      Hey Miles, on the podcast yesterday (#365) you talked about a night when you couldn't sleep because you kept hearing a loud popping noise. I remembered hearing something like this before and it's called Exploding Head Syndrome. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exploding_head_syndr... So I figured you might find some comfort in knowing that it's not ghosts. :D

      Miles, you are officially my hero.


      I've known for a long time that you are a funny person and a great PR ambassador, even when drunk, and that you are great at writing distinct, consistent character voices, but this season of RWBY has proven that you are an absolute master at portraying complex emotions, themes and tension.


      That fall leaves scene between Jaune and Pyrrha was flawless. Every line, every moment, was poignant, authentic and furthered the story on both a character level and a plot level. It was breathetaking.


      I have liked RWBY from the beginning, but episodes 6-9 have catapulted it to be one of my all time favorites. It is resonating on an emotional level akin to Avatar The Last Airbender and Full Metal Alchemist. I love it so very much.


      You are an inspiration. I hope to one day write content as good as this.


      Stay awesome and keep moving forward <3
