      Writing Exercise?

      2 months ago

      Totally just watched some Jessica Jones and now I just wanna write bad guy dialogue when I should be sleeping.

      A lot of my artist friends post their doodles and drawings whenever they're practicing, soooo I figured I could probably do the same?

      ... I dunno, maybe that's lame. It's probably lame.

      ...Whatever.

      Here's what Felix has to say about himself tonight:



      I talk too much.

      I don't usually discuss my weaknesses (mainly because I don't have many), but that's definitely one of them.

      What, you didn't think I knew? Please. Smokers know cigarettes kill you, but you still see 'em huddled together out back on their lunch breaks. You wanna know why? Fifty percent crippling addiction to nicotine and the rest because it just feels good.

      See, as you're aware, I kill people. It's what I do. I do it really well.

      Now some people say that makes me a bad person, and to those people I say *BUZZER NOISE* WRONG! People have been killing people for centuries! We do it in the name of war, religion, because fucking STEVE was cocky enough to try and bang my wife -- this is nothing new.

      ...

      You know what it is?

      ...

      It's what makes us human.

      ...

      Animals don't kill in the name of anything, they just fucking kill shit 'cause they're hungry or territorial or whatever. People are on another level. You ever stop to think about that? Like, what is it about people that makes us so different? We've got all these emotions, and thoughts, and opinions on things. My partner hates it -- runs from it, really, because those thoughts get in the way.

      They make things complicated.

      He's right... but he's also a little out of touch with his humanity. Do you see what I'm getting at here?

      Okay. Let me step it back -- Why do I talk?

      I talk because it's my way of expressing what makes me me. Because it feels good. The fundamental law of nature is that the strong survive... and the weak don't. The same thing applies to us! If killing you is going to put money in my pocket, put bread on my table, then I'm gonna kill you. Weak feeding the strong. Circle of life. Hakuna matata.

      Here's the important part: If I feel good about killing you... if being better than you gives me a rush... does that make me a bad person?

      No...

      That makes me human.

      ...

      Get it?

      ...

      Good.

      ...

      Then no hard feelings.

      New Twitch, Twitter, and YouTube Stuff

      2 months ago

      Hey guys!


      Just to give you a heads up, I've changed my Twitter handle to @TheMilesLuna!


      I've also got a new twitch channel! http://www.twitch.tv/themilesluna/profile


      It's currently not very fancy and to be honest I doubt I'll ever have a regular release schedule or anything. It's just something for fun. I'm gonna play some MGSV tonight at 8pm CST if anyone wants to join!


      And if anyone is wondering about Streamy Weenies, don't worry, it's not going anywhere. Kerry and I still plan to share that Twitch account, but he's a little busy with RWBY3 at the moment. We'll get back to it eventually, though!


      EDIT: Guess I should also mention my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgbXfy4tQHC_2HEzW...


      I'll try and upload my streams to YouTube for folks who missed it live. Eventually I'd also like to upload other kinds of videos too (maybe even ASMR), but right now I'm a little busy. I guess we'll see what happens! Until then, enjoy the terrible videos I made and uploaded back in high school and college.

      Random Question...

      2 months ago

      So, like... what do you think is the weirdest thing you've ever done while home alone?


      Because I straight up just caught myself singing The Black Keys' "Fever" as if I were a chicken.


      Like... just walking around my apartment, getting ready to go out, shouting "Bawk BAAAWK bawk bawk bawk-bawk bawwwwwk..."


      ...I mean I rocked it, but it was still kind of odd.

      Exciting Times

      2 months ago

      Goooood evening, folks!


      Kind of an easy-going evening and I just got a new keyboard, so fuck it, random personal journal entry!


      Hope you guys are all doing well! Things are really picking up steam in the animation department. Kerry, Gray, and the rest of the crew are all busting their butts working on RWBY3. My involvement with the show is mainly focused on the front end of the production pipeline (i.e. writing, VO recording and direction, and the occasional story board session) so now I'm at the point where I'm mainly watching the rest of the crew do what they do best. It's truly astounding. If you've got the time, be sure to tell Kerry if you've been enjoying this season. The dude has put his heart and soul into this show and he's got a lot of pressure on his shoulders. I'm sure it would make his day (just don't tell him I sent you).


      As for me, I've been focusing a lot on RvB14. I am... so excited. We're gonna be working with some really outstanding people and I can't wait to fill you guys in. I also can't wait to show you three of the episodes I've cooked up. I'll tell you this, though: they're animated, they're intense, and they're not gonna be like anything you've ever seen come out of Rooster Teeth. We started pre-production this week and it's nearly all I can think about.


      We've also begun work on a few new projects... buuuuut it's a little too soon to start talking about those ;)


      The only times when things feel weird are when I'm at home. I'm still not entirely used to it. After the craziness that was RvB13, having free time is still... odd. Especially in an empty apartment. Stage 5 has really come to feel more like home than anywhere else. It's where my friends are, it's where I get to do cool things... my apartment is just kind of a place to recharge. It's weird. Not bad, just weird. I dunno.


      All things considered, though, these are really some exciting times, and there's not a day that goes by that I don't think to myself just how fortunate I am.


      Hope you guys have a good night! Until next time <3

      Red vs. Blue: The Chorus Trilogy

      3 months ago

      About three years ago, Burnie Burns asked me if I would be interested in becoming the writer and director of Red vs. Blue. He asked me like it was any other question in the world. Hell, he was grilling sausages when he did it and immediately followed it up with “Oh, pass me those tortillas”.

      That question changed my life. And those sausages were outstanding.

      It has been an honor and a privilege to not only work on the greatest web series in history, but to do it alongside some of the most awe-inspiring individuals I’ve ever met, and am now fortunate enough to call my friends.

      When we started The Chorus Trilogy, it was almost solely on the shoulders of myself and Kyle Taylor, with Burnie and Matt acting as guides and Nico Audy-Rowland providing his signature sound. When we moved to Season 12, our small team expanded, bringing Josh Ornelas onto the machinima team, enlisting Clayton de Wet’s excellent sound design, and introducing animation into the trilogy through the talents of Chris Dike and Kristopher Peterson. As for the finale… it’s safe to say that it would never have been possible without the stunning team we managed to assemble. Old faces and new joined the project, each bringing something invaluable to the table, and together we did the very best we could.

      As of today, Red vs. Blue: Season 13 is available on DVD and Blu-Ray in the RT Store and select retailers... and we’re pretty goddamn proud of it.

      In the past three years, we’ve befriended giant robots, fought monstrous mercenaries, settled a civil war, awoken alien artifacts, and crashed several space ships… but we’ve also grown as a department, and as a family.

      My life has also changed since this all began. I’ve made mistakes and have done my best to learn from them. I’ve had the pleasure of bringing amazing new people into my life, and have had to cope with the bitter loss of others. The one constant throughout all of it, though, has been you.

      To you, who has watched our absurd adventures every week. Whether you loved it or you hated it, I would like to thank you for sticking with us until the end. I hope we made you laugh, cry, gasp, and occasionally curse at your computer monitors.

      The Reds and Blues will return in Season 14, as will countless other characters from all across the RvB Universe for one, epic collection of short stories and adventures. It’s going to be unlike anything we’ve ever attempted, and I can say I’m just as excited as I am nervous. Fortunately, I’ve learned that sometimes... you just have to have faith.

      And I do.

      Nothing too spectacular... but wait... inside was a smaller box, covered in bubble wrap and a green X made of tape. I dug deeper...


      What's this?

      No... could it be?

      cvrj6rH.jpg

      MOTHER OF GOD.

      For those of you who don't know, @EliteIzzy is the creator of this awesomeness. She does cosplay, photography, art, and seems to be one of the coolest people from the UK as far as I can tell. A simple tweet of thanks wasn't enough.


      Izzy, this is seriously one of the nicest things anyone's ever given me.


      Not only that, but she also included a wonderful letter, additional artwork, and the very first prop she ever made: a Hunter's blade, from Destiny.

      z3Xte1d.jpg


      Izzy, I can't thank you enough. I was having a bit of a rough day, and your kindness completely turned it around (seriously, I think I went out and ran my fastest mile ever after opening this)!


      To everyone else, go check out her work on Twitter and the RT Site! She's super cool and unbelievably talented.


      Oh, and Izzy? It fits perfect.

      See you on the battlefield... soldier.

      Hey, I've got a question regarding RvB. Is Season 14 going to have PSA's? I figured because it is an anthology season that it's going to be structured differently or something. Anyway, keep up the awesome work you do at Roosterteeth!

      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

      I know people show you RVB fanart and craft projects all the time... do you ever look at fanfiction? Or are there copyright issues with that? I've done a fair amount of writing (you can see the shorter projects on my profile) and I've put a lot of effort into it... and I just wondered if there was a snowflake's chance in hell of it getting noticed by anyone who works on RVB, really. The show's been a huge creative inspiration for me, and as a writer I would love to give back to that somehow.

      Dear Miles,
      I wanted to say thank you for the Sponsor Cut Halo videos that you and Kyle create. Those videos are hilarious and perfect for me to watch while I'm taking a short study break from writing my dissertation. It feels like you and Kyle are helping me finish this monster of a dissertation, one silly and occasional dirty joke at a time. I'm laughing right along with you. Please consider creating more of these Sponsor Cut game play-through videos, perhaps with Halo 5?

      Sincerely,

      One of the two girls who watch

      but seriously, I think more than two girls watch your videos...

      Hey Miles. I was watching you on the last couple of podcasts, and you mentioned that you were kind of dreading the process of buying a car. It may not be much help, but I've been working as a salesman at a dealership in North Carolina for a little over a year now, and if you wanted to pick my brain about anything that's worrying you, I wouldn't mind helping you out. There are a couple of really easy things that can take the stress out of car buying. You've done a lot for us as a community, and I wanted to at least try to give back. Thanks for everything you do, man.

      Miles, I just want you to know something.

      RWBY is like RvB in the way it builds on everything the season before it did right.

      Every season of RWBY so far has been exponentially better than the one before it. Season 1 was good, Season 2 was great, and in my opinion, Season 3 is shaping up to be excellent.

      My rule is to wait until three episodes air before judging a show, and now that I've watched all three week by week, I can definitely say I'm now more hooked on RWBY than ever before.

      Well done.

      Hey Miles, What's up? I want to send you a video that I made in my film editing class. I used stuff from RWBY to make an AMV. My teacher loves it and everyone that I have shown loves it too. I just wanted to see what you thought of it (since you're one of the creators). So if there is anyway I can get an email address from you, so that I can send you the video. I would just put the link in this message, but I might send it to AMV Contest's so I don't want it online yet until after I do that. So if there is a way I can send it to you let me know. Good Luck with the rest of RWBY Volume 3!

      Hey Miles, have you guys ever heard of Team Four Star? They make DBZ Abridged, anime abridged shows and lets plays. i don't know your opinion about the show if you have seen it, but would a company like Roosterteeth be able to hire guys like that to make their content for your business? it is very popular among the dragon ball community. I'm asking because i don't know if its legal and the process they have to make episodes takes a while, and because they don't own the official content, they can't make enough money to make it a career at the moment is what believe their issue is. They all live far away as well. My belief is that Team Four Star would be an awesome addition to Roosterteeth as well, but hey, I'm just a random guy on the internet.

      Hey Miles! I just finished listening to the latest Shizno with your interview, and I had an idea regarding those alternate endings you had wanted to do. Would it be possible to make them, release them on the site kinda as PSA's periodically during the off-season, and then include them on the Season 14 dvd? I know you had to cut them to make the S13 dvd deadline, but I think that would be so great to do them anyway, because yeah, those alt. endings are like one of the most memorable parts of the Blood Gulch era, and the Chorus trilogy started with Season 11 hearkening back to those days, when it was just these idiots in a box canyon, and there were so many little things like the photoshop jokes, and callbacks, and I just think that it'd be really cool to "end" the Chorus trilogy with another callback, this time to the end of the Blood Gulch era. Loved hearing them regardless, loved hearing you on the Shizno again, and huge thanks for making an incredible trilogy of RvB and for ending it so well.

      hey miles I was thinking why not in season 15 or 16 of red vs blue try to bring church back to life. Here's my thinking. Church leaves a secreat message in the memory unit witch has been off for over 3 years. Then turns back on because of the saftey protocal by epsilon dying.( I know your saying well church died three years ago why should it be on now because of the distances between the planets the signal of epsilon takes awhile) so the message is how to bring him back alive,but when they all get the message they only have 5 days to bring him back or church is gone for good, and the materials to bring him back are the alien box, the memory unit, all of the ai, and finally church's original armor body. While they look for the items to revive church aka the alpha all of the ai's start to malfunction or go crazy because when their origenal ai aka alpha dies they all die. ( so that means church aka the alpha was never really dead just resting for all of these years). sorry for distracting you just giving out some thoughts in mind.

      I was at the Houston Drafthouse showing, and it was an amazing experience to see the season all the way through for the first time surrounded by other fans! Feeling the room hold its breath as our favorite jokes came along, and just the baited silence during Church's speech are two things that really struck me. You've done an amazing job, and created what I consider to be the best few seasons of this wonderful show. Also, once the credits started playing, multiple people in the theater shaking our fists in the air saying "Damn you Miles Luna!" goes to show the piece of art that you and the team have created.

      At the Yonkers Alamo Drafthouse showing, everyone clapped and cheered after Kimball's speech, along with the Fed and New soldiers. Felix firing the confetti gun at Caboose got a HUGE laugh and enthusiastic applause. People were crying when Doyle died, and during Epsilon's closing monologue. And the fight scenes looked FREAKING GORGEOUS. The season is nearly three hours long, but the pacing is so good that I was never bored while watching. All of the character journeys came together beautifully, and this is especially true when the season is watched in one sitting.

      RvB13 is an incredible achievement and excellent storytelling. Thank you for sharing it, and the rest of the Chorus Trilogy, with us. :D

      God damn it, you brilliant bastard. Now I'll never see those two fights. I gotta spend like three days getting over this. Damn it!

      Hey Miles, just a question about Halo and its animating. Where did you guys get the female models and do they have all the different armor sets?

      Don't know if you saw my tweet, but I wanted to say thank you, Miles. Thank you, so so much. What goes on in the ending monologue is something I wonder all the time about myself. And it was a fitting cliffhanger ending without really being a cliffhanger. It spoke to a machine that had essentially become human and it touched me deep in my soul, so again, thank you. Thank you for an amazing trilogy and a great season finale.
