      FOLKS!


      HI!


      So with the crazy month I've had shooting Blood Fest, starting production on Always Open Season 3, and traveling for a bunch of conventions, I was not able to film much for August's Barbara Vlogs. Was planning to go on a cool outdoor adventure this weekend, but Hurricane Harvey obviously made that impossible.


      So! Plan B! Let's do a fun Q+A! Ask me anything in the comments below, and I'm going to be answering them in this month's vlog.

    • Meet Dan, Head of Community Product!

      Barbara

      Hey guys! Long time no speak!


      The Rooster Teeth website has been around for over 13 years. In those years, we've seen different iterations of the site, as well as changes in activity (from both our members and RT staff) and function. Some for the better, some for the worse.


      With the growth of other platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, etc, we recognize that our community is splintered in different directions. Even I am guilty of not being as active on this site as I used to be or want to be.


      This is our home. This is where you should be able to interact with the Rooster Teeth community and staff, and we have been working at figuring out how to get back to that.

      This is why I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of the Rooster Teeth family, Dan McComas! (@kickme444


      Dan has an incredible history, working on the community site software / product at Reddit & Reddit Gifts, Imzy, and others. He will be working to define and adapt the vision of the community website, and develop it into something we're all proud of. @Chelsea and I will also be working closely with him and you guys to make sure we keep you in the loop, and hear your wants and concerns.


      We are very excited to have him on board. He'll be checking the comments of this post, so give him a proper RT community welcome! barbara


    • Always Open Happy Hour @ RTX!

      3 months ago

      Barbara

      I mentioned briefly on Twitter, but at RTX this year, we're hosting an Always Open Happy Hour with fellow cast & crew from the show!


      Date: July 8th

      Time: 7 - 8:30 PM CT

      Location: Rain on 4th


      A few things:

      - No, this is not a live show or panel. Just hanging, having some drinks!

      - 21+, since it's at a bar. Sorry, youngins! 

      - This is a ticketed event - not a "first come, first served" event. 

      - You will also need your badge to get in. This is not open to the public. 


      Tickets will go on sale this Tuesday (June 27) at 7 PM CT RIGHT HERE.


      Another important detail: tickets for this will be $5, and ALL proceeds from ticket sales will be going to Out Youth, which serves the Central Texas LGBTQ+ (lesbian/gay/bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning) youth and their allies with programs and services to ensure these promising young people develop into happy, healthy, successful adults. (For more info, go to https://www.outyouth.org/


      Sadly since this is a smaller venue, we have very limited capacity. If you don't manage to snag a ticket, not to worry- we're also doing an Always Open PANEL at RTX, with much more space for everyone to join us! That is happening Saturday (July 8th) at 11:30 AM in Ballroom D (in the Convention Center). 


      Hope to see you there, or at our panel on Saturday! <3 

    • Camp Camp Season 2... TOMORROW!

      Barbara

       waveHeeeeello, Campers!  sunny evergreen_tree

       

      It’s summer, which can only mean one thing: CAMP CAMP IS BACK... BACK!


      The second season of Camp Camp kicks off tomorrow morning, with an all-new time: 8 AM CT. We know you’ve been in the habit of getting up early for school, so why not keep that trend going by waking up early for CARTOONS? Much better than school, am I right?


      Another change to the release schedule is that now Camp Camp will be exclusive to FIRST members for 7 days, meaning non-FIRST members will get the first episode NEXT Friday (June 16th) at 8 AM CT.


      If you’re not a FIRST member, this is a great time to sign up. Camp Camp Season 2 is hilarious and fantastic, especially that Nerris character. We know you’ll want to see each episode as soon as it's released, so you should sign up. Like, now. You can even get a free 30-day trial!

       

      See you tomorrow morning! Don’t forget your snacks and sunscreen.

    • BD Spring Line is here!

      Guess what! Rooster Teeth asked me to design more clothes for the RT Store, and that’s all thanks to you guys and your amazing response to the first BD line. Since it’s starting to warm up, we wanted to do a spring collection! For me, nothing says spring more than flowers, but I wanted to do more than that.


      The theme of this collection is beautiful & badass. All 3 shirts have a theme of bones (antlers, skull, and rib cage) and flowers, and are on some perfectly spring-colored tops for the warmer months. They work great for dressing up or down, whether you pair them with jean shorts or a frilly white skirt.


      I’m so excited for you to get them! Make sure you tag @TheRTStore and me (@bdunkelman) when you get yours, so I can see your beautiful face. We can’t wait to see what’s next - your feedback is always appreciated!



    • We're nominated for a Webby!

      Barbara

      EYO!

      Remember that video we did a few months ago, Tinder: The Superhero Movie Trailer

      Well, that video has the potential to be AWARD WINNING


      It's nominated for a Webby for Individual Short or Episode, and it's up against some pretty big names (including The Simpsons). As much as I love the Simpsons, we need to CRUSH THEM WITH OUR GIANT INTERNET HANDS!


       point_rightGo here, and click vote on the Tinder Trailer (you'll need a valid email to vote, OR, as per peter_h, "you can also use Twitter or Facebook as validation for your vote. It doesn't allow any write permission, so it won't auto tweet/post anything. It's a good alternative to those not wanting to add their email to another service)

      ....And that's it!  


      Thanks for supporting us in our endeavors to beat The Simpsons. LET'S DO IT

      I am very sorry to bother you. I submitted a question via email to the always open team. Will they respond, no matter wether the question will be picked for the show or not?

      Unfortunately we get quite a few emails, so we can't guarantee every email will be answered/picked for the show. But we really appreciate every question we get in, and it's always possible we may go back to look through old emails to pick segments for the show!

      Hello Barb (and the rest of the RT staff)!

      I was absolutely thrilled that you all came out to Portland for Ruby Rose City Con (no, I could not help myself. Yes, all of you may use it). I had actually wanted to say that there was a moment during season 3 of RWBY where your acting was ... the only word I have to describe it is "perfect" as nothing in my vocabulary is quite accurate enough for it. It was the scene after Yang had been disqualified from the tournament and Blake hesitated to support her. The way your voice broke always hits me hard and that scene will surely bring me to tears. I wanted to thank you for delivering what was a small line but had such a big impact on the character.


      - A bit of a fanboy,
      Uncle Qrow

      p.s. if the voice cast of JNPR, or anyone else from RT looked to come up to Portland for a convention we would be more than happy to welcome you all back!

      Hey Barb,

      Sorry to hear about Relationship Goals- I hope the "hiatus" isn't of the permanent variety and we'll see an 8th instalment sometime soon. Anyway, I know you're probably very busy, but if you get a chance, my production team just finished its first short film about, well, relationships (go figure), and I'd really appreciate any feedback you could give us, if you can find the time. Runtime's 11min (fair warning), but it plugs along at a good pace.

      Kind regards,

      A fellow pun-loving Canadian

      Barbs, there's something I think you should know. I'm sure you know how much I love both DragonBall Z and Super, plus RWBY; literally to the point when I did a crossover thing on DragonBall Xenoverse 2 (Ruby's level 87 by the way, she's the strongest character I've got). Well I just went and bought four pairs of potara earrings (which came under 60 quid) to give to you guys (You, Lindsay, Kara and Arryn that is) for when I go to RTX London with my sister. They're in different colours to match your respective characters (somewhat, one pair is Red, whereas the other three pairs are Aqua, Purple and Honey). So I guess that makes you all Kaioshins now as well! Lolz! ruby weiss blake yang Anywho I just figured I'd enlighten you, because I'm terrible at making surprises, and I don't like to keep you guys in the dark. Obviously I don't know if Arryn and Kara will be going. If they're unable to turn up, maybe you could pass their earrings onto them for me, please? Thanks! Anyways I look forward to seeing you and the rest of RT Gang in London on October. Much love  heart blue_heart purple_heart yellow_heart

      Hi Barb,

      I'm catching up on all of the Always Open episodes and I just wanted to say thank you for addressing 9/11 the way you did in pilot episode 0.3.

      I know humor can be a good coping mechanism, but that commercial in question was in no way a joke designed to help anyone cope.  Before that day, I didn't see the big deal about making jokes about tragedies like the Holocaust or rape jokes, but that's because I never had perspective on how survivors of those kind of tragedies feel.

      My dad worked around the corner from the WTC, he watched the second plane hit from 3 blocks away. I called him frantically when the buildings collapsed trying to make sure he was out of harms way. Phone lines and service were jammed for hours that day.  I didn't learn that he was ok until 7pm that night.  He had to walk across the Brooklyn bridge and hitch hike to get home to my distraught mother.

      I also have a friend of my family who was a firefighter who lost his life trying to save others on that day. He had an infant son who will never know his father except for the fact that he was a hero. I have another friend of the family who luckily took off that day, but lost his entire company, all of his coworkers gone in the blink of an eye. I had a daily commute through the subway terminal in the lower level of that complex for 2 years, if it happened one year earlier, I would have been going through there at the time of the attack. To people whose lives it touched directly, it'll never be something funny.

      Maybe 2 or 3 generations from now it might be acceptable to make joke in reference of 9/11 like people are able to do now about the Holocaust, but to the people who remember it first hand, it just brings up a feeling of numbness.

      Thank you for addressing that issue on your show, it meant a lot me and as I'm sure it did as well for the other members of RTNY.

      Mike

      Hi Barbara, I was just wondering if we could use the power of the Rooster Teeth Community to do something wonderful.


      Unfortunately my brother-in-law, who has suffered from debilitating physical and mental illnesses throughout his 19 year life, passed away peacefully last night at home surrounded by people that love him. However, due to his complex medical needs whilst alive and his deep love of food and drink (which I'm sure you can relate to), his family do not have the money to pay for a funeral. So, i was wondering if you could please share the below link to the just giving page so we can try and honour Thomas' legacy by giving him the funeral he deserves. Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated.


      God bless,

      Ryan Foster.

      Hey Barbara!

      I just had an idea for a Million Dollars But card. It would be a "thats a lot of money" card. There would only be 2 or 3 in the whole set, and you would play it at the begginging of the round. I have thought of two different options for the card:

      1. The user get to play two answers to double his chances of winning

      2. Whoever wins the round gets two points instead of one

      Hope you like the Idea!

    Unfortunately we get quite a few emails, so we can't guarantee every email will be answered/picked for the show. But we really appreciate every question we get in, and it's always possible we may go back to look through old emails to pick segments for the show! 

    RT will sadly not be at Fan Expo this year :(

    It's pretty hard, but can be harder/easier depending on your situation. If you have a company that wants to hire you and sponsor your Work Visa / pay for an immigration lawyer to handle it, it's easier. If you don't have a job offer and are just trying to get to the states.. it's...hard. Real hard.

    We recognize the issues with our site - and we're working on them. We recently brought on more people for web development and I believe front-end design (if not soon). Believe me, it's understood it needs a lot of work, and a lot of it has begun. Many things to work on, but you will start seeing improvement as we go. Our goal is to make this feel like a home for everyone, both in watching content and being part of a community base. Changes be comin'!

    Still working on it! It's gone through a few different changes through development, but it's getting there. I'd rather take time to make it something good than rush it out. We'll hopefully have something started this year. :)

    You never know! I'm sure it's possible now that RTX is expanding to other countries.

    Yang's hair. Have you seen that shit? IT'S MAJESTIC AF.

    Since the end of 2004. AKA: long.

    I'll answer this tomorrow.

    I knew it was coming this volume, so I was super excited to do the VA for the scene. Had to drink lots of water for screaminz'.

    You can't have an "all time best" thing when all of them are perfect and god-like.
