      Been working with Tilt Shift for a while now. I was always happy with my results but wanted to figure out how to really amplify that miniature feeling. Spent some time last week studying up on the technique and had a real breakthrough. 


      Basically, I am saying I hope you like tilt shift shots because you are going to see a lot more of them in future vlogs.

      Wow. The Webbys just listed me as an honoree for Best Host/Personality for my work on the vlog. Didn't expect something like that so soon after it started, and alongside some big names in that genre. Thanks everyone who supports the show. It's been fun working on it these past few months. What an awesome day.

      After last week's epic 20 minute vlog, I am going to make this week's episode more of a relaxed affair. It's been a long time since we did a Q&A , so submit some questions and I'll answer the ones that get the most mods. So mod up the ones you like!


      Don't make the questions just for me. I will try to find people if you have specific questions for them. No guarantees on that though; we have five different things shooting today. 


      If you don't have an RT account, you can also send your questions to 


      burnie on twitter

      burnie on instagram


      And these will be posted on the vlog, so edit your typos and stop embarrassing your mother. 


      If for some reason you don't want your username and avatar displayed, please include that in the comment and I will just read your question.

      Today's vlog will be a bit of a rerun for most FIRST members but there is an announcement at the start of the video. In a nutshell, the Vlog will now be available to the public after a window on FIRST. We are also going to start producing it on a weekly basis. We plan to make a FIRST only vlog that is more of a "state of the union" for Rooster Teeth. 


      Thanks for the suggestion that the Monday vlog should be the one to introduce the public to the production. I agree it's a good representation.


      PS there are some new shots in the Monday Vlog. I spent time with a couple more groups to get a more complete view of the company.

      So the shows are still coming out pretty regularly, but most of the office has been quiet these last few days with most people taking vacation this week. There's still a skeleton crew of hard working employees making sure that the shows we recorded for this week go out on time.

      This week marks the end of Game Time. I recorded a bonus episode with Greg Miller a few months ago and it just came out today. The audio on it was really glitched and Andrew Blanchard worked with it on-and-off for two months before he was able to edit the video. 


      I loved talking to Greg. He has such a unique story with his rise to prominence on IGN, his health crisis and the incredible independent success of Kinda Funny. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. 


      Game Time was fun, but I think there's a better format for long form interviews. One of my many plans for 2017...

      I don't know where else to post this, sorry.


      Can you try and get rid of the new banner ads that pop up at the bottom of the screen? If you want us to use the RT site than please don't make the site even more annoying to use. I already cancelled my First membership because of the constant problems and annoyances with the site/ app. I try and watch as much Rooster Teeth content on YouTube as possible which defeats the purpose of having a First membership.


      A really long time ago on a podcast you and Gus were talking about a customer support line that starting trying to sell Gus something when he was already annoyed and irate (I think it was Sirius support). I feel like this is similar. We've been complaining about problems with the RT site for years (slow loading, the video player, lack of HTTPS, terrible search, so on) but we just get more annoying ads and limited improvements to the site. 


      I would love to renew my membership to first if the site worked better and was less annoying.

        Hey Joseph. I just checked out ya website. It's really cool, right to the point. Though, I'm not an expert at web design, I do have a bit of a comment on the "Works" page. I use Wix so I don't know if this would be possible, but could you possibly make the list of your music wider, or lower it down a bit more?

      Hey Burnie,


      Wanted to leave a comment about podcast 445 a few days ago but I hadn't verified my email yet after creating my new account. Side note: used to have one then kind of fell out of the rooster teeth orbit for like 4 years. But now I'm back and frankly very much liking the more thoughtful viewpoints I see and consideration for other peoples lived experiences. When I originally left I fell rather put out; I'm a trans woman and many of your jokes in content back around 2013 were hurtful and felt aimed at marginalized populations. That has changed for a large part now, though not entirely.


      To paraphrase my deleted comment: I love the consideration given (around the hour mark) about the current issues wrt trans people and how the current administration is working against our rights and progress that has been made through the blood sweat and tears of some of the most vulnerable members of society - Black Trans Women. I want to agree that drag and trans-ness are not the same but also not mutually exclusive.


      As for a question that popped up at the 1:10 mark or so, I wanted to give some perspective. I'm white so I'll keep my commentary about race to a relative minimum because my opinion won't be very nuanced or informed. As for LGBT rights, I have more experience to speak from. I believe that the reason that social movements and their victories in recent years haven't had much momentum or engendered sweeping change of policies and viewpoints is that fundamentally the changes that were made were helpful but superficial. That is not to downplay the tremendous effects of legalizing gay marriage and repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell had on the LGBT community. Unfortunately, for trans and nonbinary people, that progress didn't change the basic danger in our lives of discrimination and violence. What those two victories in specific did was to allow people to assimilate into an oppressive structure and society without examining or changing that structure. I don't think it's right to lay blame for that focus so I won't; many people have priorities for many reasons and I don't want to talk your ear off about all that argument lol. However, I did want to add that because it felt like a question made in good faith and I wanted to meet you there and encourage the changes you have made and further change to happen.


      I'm a newly back on the bandwagon fan, and seeing your progress through the years about being more socially aware is really re-invigorating my passion for your content. I hope you have a great day!


      Sincerely,

      Chelsea


      PS. If you'd like to get in contact about anything I said here feel free! I'd love to talk to you further <3

      Cancelled membership:  Hi Burnie...just can't support giving you guys $ anymore.  The constant Trump bashing is  getting just too frequent (just finished your 2 man podcast with Gavin) and you have NO dissenting opinions anywhere in your company.  While there are many salient talking points involving this administration, you, like so many members of Hollywood offer no alternative thoughts that do not meet your narrative, I have not even heard them discussed by any member of RT.  50% of this country voted for him, and we are getting so weary of the demonization and myopic viewpoints that offer no other alternative.


      Get rid of the Thor's hammer I gave you at RTX, I don't think you or Gavin are worthy of it anymore.

        How did 50% of the country vote for him if only 58% of the country voted? That's one hell of a landslide victory.

      Hi Burnie;  burnie

      Huge fan of RT I think my favorite joke of all time was you in podcast 22 microphone- wich company has the most storage ... Tupperware


      Anywho I just "finished" setting up a discord server for the RT Community, and was wondering if we could get a shout out from you. As of right now there are only 14 of us in it but I endeavor to see our little server grow to be a place where RT fans can hangout and chat with each other, watch rt shows together or make a party and play some games with fellow fans.

Sorry I didn't word things very well as we were discussing what RT might be up to at E3 and then we saw you standing by the E3 south hall cafe just steps from where we were having lunch. I was very surprised to say the least and wanted to keep things quick as I was worried I was interrupting your lunch time. You handled my babbling well, hope the rest of E3 goes well for you guys.

      I knew it was a mistake when I wrote it and was just drunk enough not to care.  I should know better and just keep my dumb ass opinions to myself.  Even my response to you this morning I was just hung over enough that I still sounded like a dick trying to make a lame excuse instead of apologizing like I should have.  I didn't mean to start anything... Well that's not true at the time I was drunk and I probably was but I don't normally.  My bad. :(

      I was listening to DR Podcast Ep #426 and you mentioned hearing about people getting married through the site. It made me realize that I had a pretty unique event because of Rooster Teeth. I met Kittiegirl on RVB  when I was going to school in New York in 2008. 6 years later she became interested in joining the military and in 2015 i was proud to commission in her into the US Army as a Second Lieutenant.

      Im sure i can speak for majority of the UK/Europe fans when i say, "Thank You". thank you for bringing RTX to London. i can't wait to be there and meet you. i would like to ask and hope you are able to answer a question. I am going to be there hopefully in a full Lazer Team (singular) Cosplay and was wandering if there is any advice you could give me based on the bodysuit you wore or about the pieces of the suit (gauntlet, laser/cannon, boots, helmet) Like what material was used in the making. And thank you Burnie for everything you've done for and with RT. im filled with joy to ee how far you all have come as a company and as a family of colleagues.

No where is that ever documented. Just figured that out 2 days ago when I accidentally hit it before taking out the batteries yet again.

      You've probably seen this video going around by now but I was hoping you could maybe tweet or talk about it on the podcast maybe get some more attention to the sickos in the TSA


      Basically an older male TSA 'officer' molests a boy in front of his parents, they filmed the whole thing.

I spent over a week working on a video and I put it up and I made three cents on it, and even though it's basically nothing to me it's made me the proudest I've ever been to know I can make anything from my own work, to make my first couple cents by creating my own value without being on somebody else's pay roll. I'm a long ways away from making my first dollar, but I owe you a big thank you for being one of my biggest role models. Can't thank you enough for all you do.

      Hey Burnie, I'm doubtful this will reach you, but I have to try. I'm part of a podcast called the Fandom Flux Podcast. Our 'leader', Casey, started up a show with a fellow cast member Zero, introducing him to the show of RWBY. It's called Zero Interest, a name we all giggled at like children and patted ourselves on the back for. This is done by them watching the episode, and then having a discussion about the show's themes, characters, tones, etc. The show is set up like a VLOG, with both Casey and Zero being recorded in a face-cam style, their discussion broken up by bits and pieces of relevant parts from the episode they happen to be talking about.

      The reason I'm writing this comment, is because one of our episodes was recently hit with a take down notice. We naturally appealed under fair use, our show is all about using the show of RWBY as a vehicle to share our opinions of your company's work, we are absolutely not re-uploading full episodes or stealing your hard work. Unfortunately, that appeal was flat out denied with no reason as to why.

      We aren't a huge group, but we love what we do and we have a few dozen fans that we wouldn't trade for anything in the world. Please, if you have a few minutes, can you look into the matter, or get someone to give even a cursory glance at our work so you know we're not thieves, just fans.

      I've been looking into the whole "How many senses are there, really" question. 

      Some of it you're right about, where under certain definitions they can all be sub-divisions of the sense of touch, but neuro-scientists have started to re-define touch and separate the individual somatic sensations and define them individually such as pressure, heat and pain. This is mostly because there are conditions in which people can feel one, or more but not the other, (someone who can feel pressure and cold, but not pain)  so that means that they are independent of each other.

      They have also now included what they call interoceptive senses into the definition. These are senses that are internal in your body and don't necessarily rely on external stimuli, such as balance (the sense of your body's alignment), proprioception (the spacial awareness of your extremities) and organic sense (i.e hunger, thirst, nausea).

      Proprioception is actually very interesting in and of itself. Reduction of your sense of proprioception is the reason for the walk the line and finger to nose sobriety tests. Complete loss of proprioception is the cause of what most people describe as an "out of body" experience.

      The bottom line is that most scientists agree that there are at least nine senses, but there are arguments for as many as 21.  It's all in how you define things and scientists currently disagree on this issue, just like back when they were debating what defines a planet. R.I.P. Pluto

      Hey Burnie,


      A few months ago in the podcast you mentioned a viral video that I've been looking for for a really long time. The 'Kitty is a Very Bad Mystic' video. I don't know how, but it seems to be one of the very few pieces of media that has truly completely disappeared from the internet. I've opened a challenge on /r/GoForGold in hopes of finding it. When I do, I'll shoot you a link, if you're still interested in seeing it.

      Hey Burnie RWBY vol 4 episode 3 came today.

      And I want to say you did an awesome job as Tai. You can feel Tai's emotions and how he wants to help yang but has no real clue how to do it but he is still trying and backing off when its clear Yang wasnt having it.


      I have a disability I am deaf in my right ear hearing Tai reminded me of my own folks when they were trying but didnt know how to do it.


      So thank you.

      Hey Burnie, thanks for being so considerate all the time about the audio listeners to the podcast.  I've been listening back through the archives while working, and it is really nice to have you describe visual stuff on occasion for us audio listeners.  Thank you!

      Hey Burnie, I wasn't sure who to talk to about this but I recently got sponsorship and i went to get six months of it but then realized I could get a free trial for a month, so I cancelled the auto-renew just in case i couldn't pay for it later. Well my time should have expired on the 18th but I still have it. I waited so long because i figured it would sort it's-self out. But there might be a bug im not sure. btw Amazing Cameo in crunch time, you should star in a series if you have time.

      Dear Burnie:

      One of the actors in Crunch Time made it into a narrative re-telling in Drunk History... given you guy's attempt to do drunk re-reads of RvBep1, can you see about doing a drunk narrative for DH? 10/10 I would watch

      Did you see that a Japanese film might pass the sales figures of Avatar in Japan?

      Hey Burnie, just thought you should know that an RT UK shirt was seen pretty prominently on the Last Leg, a really popular British tv show. Might be something to call out.

      Idk who I should tell this too, but I'm totally at a Starbucks after hours chilling right now, and they are blasting RWBY music through there outside speakers. I took a video but the quality sucks.

      Hay Burnie $400.00 But you have to get me All of The Team RWBY Plush. 


      1.  I know that they are still selling them in Australia and New Zealand on Hanabee.com & Rooster Teeth Australia.  


      2.  I want to buy it but... Rooster Teeth Australia & Hanabee.com doesn't ship to the USA, witch "SUCKS" because I would pay the shipping costs just to have all The Team RWBY Plushies.


      So why.... Why are you discontinuing RUBY & YANG when so many people want them... WHY Burnie WHY?

      From the recent podcasts I have 2 books to recommend..


      Ready Player One and Armada by Ernest Cline

      Both based around VR and quick reads.

  • Questions answered by burnie

    I know this question is older but I have been using a drone in lots of the vlogs.

    About 3-5 times a week, depending on if I travel that week.

    Exceed definitely. Outlast is a different animal. Fifteen+ seasons is very, very rare territory in any medium.

    Going to answer this with a quote from a fitness magazine. I think it's a great way to look at motivation, which is not something you can control:


    "Fuck motivation. it’s a fickle and and unreliable little dickfuck and isn’t worth your time.


    Better to cultivate discipline than to rely on motivation. force yourself to do things. force yourself to get up out of bed and practice. Force yourself to work. Motivation is fleeting and it’s easy to rely on because it requires no concentrated effort to get. Motivation comes to you, and you don’t have to chase after it.


    Discipline is reliable, motivation is fleeting. The question isn’t how to keep yourself motivated. It’s how to train yourself to work without it."

    Thanks, Gus. Just keep pluggin' away. You'll get there.

    I'm usually racing to hit my calorie move goal by the end of the day. I don't drink really. So I basically just browse the web. The say you aren't meant to look at screens right before falling asleep but I do it a lot.

    Nah. Part of the Q&A sessions at live events are about the interaction. I know people outside the events will often criticize the question askers, but it's not their job to be entertaining. That's our responsibility. If questions get too bland, we'll just talk for 15 minutes before taking the next one.


    The only thing I hate is the fake "oh is it my turn?" "is that what my voice sounds like?" performance garbage that some people do. I have warned audiences many times that once you get to that mic you are part of the show. I have no problem blasting you in front of 5000 people the same way I do to Gavin or Joel or Gus. It's how we show love. Basically, if you do something to slow down the energy in the room we will quickly move to get it back.

    Ashley's cat Nutmeg loves me, but she wakes me up every single day and yells at me. We get in an argument every morning. Somehow, Ash sleeps through it.

    The single hardest I have ever laughed was when I interviewed Kara for the What Do You Know show about guy movies. Her Back To The Future answers were so funny and when she said which way the car travels through time, I lost it. I literally could not stop laughing for ten minutes. They cut all of that out because my host character is meant to be supportive and deadpan, but that was just too much for me.

    Nope. Vines are hard. I have lots of respect for Vine artists.

    This might sound rude, but I've been trying to find a way to say this for a long time: I never open the flash drives people hand me. It's not that I don't like to review people's work, it's that I don't trust a flash drive I don't know in any of my computers. It's far better to have an online repository and just send that to me in a link. Sorry.


    I also don't eat baked goods that people give us at conventions. But I do appreciate them. And Blaine eats it all.

    Games is our fastest growing division. Follow Michael Hadwin on the site and/or Twitter.

    Sure, I will be the guy talking about Tharsis non-stop and not knowing what The Witness is.

    Walking Dead, Jessica Jones, Mr Robot


    I have been working through a huge backlog of movies as well. Just watched John Wick. It was great.

    Sure. Reviews don't scare me. I think I said this on a podcast after our festival run, but it's inevitable to get some bad reviews. People are brutal when talking about movies. A videogame can have parts that are broken or missing on day one and still get a 9/10. Movies don't get that same pass. I am just very happy the audience likes it. It may seem like a forgone conclusion that the RT audience would like it, but that's not at all the case. There's been plenty of shows our existing audience hated. If that had happened with Lazer Team, we would have had a big problem on our hands.

    We have tested cooking in a couple of different formats. I think the people who enjoy cooking most don't really have time to pilot a new show that far off the beaten path.


    Pancake podcast is this week and I am super excited.

    Just keep using the site and posting awesome stuff. I saw that Awesome On Its Own was making a return and that made me very happy.

    Actor -- narrative shorts and our featured productions like LT and Crunch Time

    Director -- not really directing much these days, but as a Producer I will say Immersion

    Writer -- Featured Productions and developing new series

    Sure. We moved in the middle of last year so we had to change our setup, but I can tell her you would like to start again. I'm a little reluctant to admit that I don't play that many games anymore. In the last six months I have played FO4, some Just Cause 3 and a smattering of smaller Steam games. It's one the reasons I'm not ever on The Patch. I don't have much to talk about.

    Last few years I have focused on work in front of the camera rather than behind. 2016 will put me back in the Director's chair.

    Boobs or butts?

    | Asked by: WildLemon 1 year ago

    Thankfully, I don't have to choose.

    Probably the Carribean for vacation and Australia for just general travel. Once, I went down to New Zealand and rode the train from Christchurch to Greymouth. It was an amazing journey. If you go, eat the whitebait.

    It depends on the job. If you mean a personality/artist job then there is no requirement. A lot of our personalities never went to university. Some didn't even graduate high school.

    How old is Joe the cat now?

    | Asked by: Paul_Lee 1 year ago

    Joe The Cat is about eight years old. He's getting super fat in retirement.

    Matt was telling me that the box office numbers in UK were higher than in US even though it has 1/5 the population. My response was "RTUK?", he punched me.


    I would love to have the US show be a traveling show the way MineCon does. But I know how radically inefficient that model is. Hopefully we can do more touring-style events like the LT screenings, Let's Play Live and Dude Soup Live.

    I wish I had a better answer than "I know it when I see it" but that's really the main answer. Also, our writers have to be fast. It's just the nature of what we do.

    All better. Stitches out and just stretching it every day.

    There's nothing you can do about it. Some things are constant on the internet. You can't ever say what the weather is like where you are, because people will just tell you why it's worse where they are. You also can't mention an event without people being upset that you aren't coming to where they live. No one sees all the other responses and obvious jokes when they are making their single post.

    I could not be happier. Watching fans all over the world have mini-meetups was absolutely mind blowing.

    Ashley, depending on how nice Ashley is to me that day.
