    • It's a bear... and it reviews movies!

      I wasn't going to post this on here, but it's been a couple of weeks since I finished it, and people genuinely seem to like it, so what the hell?

      I've been teaching myself animation and general film making over the last year or so, and have been working with a fun little character called Honeypot, a cartoon bear with a disjointed personality. His first video was not great, I always describe it as being two minutes of solid, funny content, but unfortunately it's an eight minute video. But the stuff that worked was good, and the character was enjoyable.

      Next I did a "movie review" with him watching the new Fantastic Four film. It was actually an alright video. Not what I had hoped, but still a lot of fun, and definitely not dull.


      The latest video is a continuation of the movie review show, this time focusing on The Force Awakens, and I have to say, I'm pretty proud of it. It's the closest I've come to making a video that worked out the way I saw it in my head, and now I'm actually having people ask me about future videos. It's a good feeling.

      I still have a long way to go, but I'm finally biting the bullet and posting the video here, because you guys are, of course, big online content watchers, and you know what you like. If any of you want to check out the vid, and give me feedback (good or bad. I genuinely want to get better and better), I would really appreciate it.

      And who knows? You may actually get a laugh out of it.

      Peace out, you beautiful individuals!

      Ever since the new site went live, I haven't been able to watch any videos on the site in anything above 360p (which if you've seen how it's compressed on this site, you know that it's unwatchable at that resolution)

      Not a biggie for most videos, because I can watch them on YouTube, but for Sponsor content...

      I know there are a huge chunk of people here in Australia that are having this issue (Yes, we have shitty internet, but I can usually stream 720p on other sites), but is it just something localized to Oz, or is it a widespread problem?

      I've messaged RT about it a number of times, but they've been fucking useless. A lot of "We'll look into it" without any actual results.

      I actually have no idea why I'm still paying for this sponsorship. I guess I just expected it to be fixed by now.

      I seriously don't get why they don't give us back the download option, at least for Sponsor videos. It's not like they're making ad revenue off them.

      Sorry if this is a bit ranty, I'm just really fucking annoyed by this.

      This is nothing more than an awareness post for the greatest fangroup in the world.

      If you're an Australian, and you love Rooster Teeth, then you should be a part of the Roo Teeth community.

      We're about to hit the 3000 member mark, and we're the central hub for everything Rooster Teeth, Hanabee, and Awesome in Australia.

      We don't bite... at least no more than the average Ozzy, we are accepting of people regardless of religion, gender, race, sexual preference, or anything else that makes you YOU, and I think I speak for most of us when I say that being part of Roo Teeth is a life-changing decision.

      Be sure to check us out, and experience the joy that is the Roo Teeth community.

      We'll eat your soul, in the best possible way.

      Today's announcement of RTX Australia has been a big moment for the Australian Rooster Teeth community.

      As an admin for Roo Teeth, I've been able to watch this from both sides, seeing the hard working people behind the scenes as they pour their heart into making this a reality, and the elation of all the fans who have never been able to make it to RTX because of the sheer distance.

      Australia is a country with a pretty low population density, and yet we have a huge and incredibly passionate Rooster Teeth fanbase, large enough to actually make this event a reality. That's saying something.

      I know there are people out there that are unhappy that their country is not the first to have an international RTX, but this isn't a competition. Your time will come. Hopefully, many of you will be able to come to Australia, see the sights, and enjoy our hospitality as you mingle with fans from all around the world. If not, don't stress, because Rooster Teeth is in the midst of its expansion, and I suspect you'll soon find yourself spoiled for choice when it comes to future events.

      At the end of the day, this is a truly international community, and Rooster Teeth recognises that.

      This is something we should all be thankful for.

    • Thank You.

      Nothing longwinded, just having one of those days where I realise how much the Rooster Teeth community means to me, and how much you have all supported me.

      So thank you, everyone.

    • His True Legacy

      4 years ago

      darthwader

      It's been about a week since Monty's untimely passing, and in that short time, I've seen so much change from people.

      Many amazing celebrities have died over the last couple of years, the one that truly sticks in my mind is Robin Williams, who was an icon for most of our childhoods, and just a brilliant entertainer, and yet it is Monty Oum, an animator on the internet, who has most inspired people.

      Over the last week, I have seen a ridiculous number of people finally starting projects that they had been thinking about for years. Redoubling their efforts on projects they've already been working on. Reassessing what they've been doing with their time, and finding ways to put it to better use.

      This is all because Monty, with his unrivalled enthusiasm and productivity, accomplished more at the age of 33 than most of us could hope to achieve, but to try to do anything less would be a dishonour to the man himself.

      I know that I have already improved my output considerably. In 3 days, I edited 20,000 words in my current novel, compared to the typical 5000ish I would do in a week. I have been doing groundwork on my next novel, too. Plus, I'm preparing assets for a new series of animated shorts. This new effort is my small way of paying tribute to him.

      I don't know if I can ever be as productive or as inspirational as Monty, and I'm sure there are thousands of other people out there who are thinking the same thing, but that's not the point.

      Monty showed us that the only way to make something worthwhile is to keep working at it, and that is a lesson we will never forget.

      I can't even put into words how shocked I am at Monty's passing. It has hit me far harder than I would have imagined.

      Monty's work has been an unimaginable inspiration to me over the years (I can't tell you how often I watched the first RWBY trailer, studying the artistry in every frame), and there is no measuring how much respect I had for the man.

      The only ray of sunshine I can see in this cloudy mess is that Monty had the opportunity for the world to see his work. He was able to spread his vision to countless other people, providing entertainment, inspiration, solace, and amazement. This is the dream that all artists share, and most go through their entire lives without achieving it. Even at the far-too-young age of 33, Monty did amazing things with his life, and his gift was shared with everyone. That's something we can all be thankful for.

      My deepest sympathies to his friends and family in this trying time.

        No, I didn't wear the costume in Melbourne.
        It was in the boot of my car the whole time... valet parking can make life a bitch sometimes.
