      Introducing @Martinizer

      2 years ago

      Please extend a proper RT Community hello to Chris "The Martinizer" Martin, Rooster Teeth's new sales guy. He's been working undercover for me the past few months in support of our RTX, podcast and AH sales ventures, but his skills and success in inspiring companies to partner with us can no longer be ignored. Chris and I are excited to continue to develop and build the list of partner companies who want to interact with all of you in person at RTX and in support of the Podcast, Achievement Hunter and the rest of the Rooster Teeth catalogue of shows.

      Cheers,

      Alan

      (and regarding his nickname?... that's a Matt question)

      Thank You!

      Hey community, y'all rule and I owe you a huge thank you.

      So here goes:
      Thanks for being supportive of my new Business Development position at RT.
      Thanks for supporting our new sponsorship model for the RT Podcast, Achievement Hunter shows, and RT Recap.
      Thanks for checking out our advertisers and giving them an incentive to continue working with Rooster Teeth.

      It's always iffy territory to initiate new advertising and sponsorship models - especially with such a tight knit and long-standing community such as ours. But you guys have been great. Amazing in fact. Every advertiser that has run a test ad or campaign with us has come back, begging to continue working with us. And that simply would not be the case if you all just ignored them. So because of your awesome support, we can continue to:

      1) Hire more top talent and community members.
      2) Increase the production value and grow our existing shows like the RT Podcast, RT Shorts and Immersion.
      3) Fast Track development of new productions (RWBY for example!!)
      4) Build RTX into a world class gaming and Internet/Rooster Teeth culture event.

      I can't wait for you to see what we have in store for you this year. It's a good time to be part of the coolest online community in the world...ever...of all time.

      Cheers,

      Alan

      (And rest assured, we will always be aggressively protective about retaining our voice, creativity and humor (do you really think the AH guys would allow otherwise??) smiley8.gif

      Hello Rooster Teeth Community...

      2 years ago

      Hello RT community, my name is Alan and I'm the new Director of Business Development (or "Sales Dude" according to Barbara) here at Rooster Teeth.

      Since my job title here is a bit vague and corporate sounding, I decided it was important for me to introduce myself directly to y'all and give you a bit of an overview of what I intend to do in partnership with Burnie, Matt, Geoff, Gus and the rest of the Rooster Teeth, Achievement Hunter, and RTX Event team.

      For starters, my first and most important job is to ensure that you, our faithful community, will continue to get the funniest, edgiest and most informative gaming and comedy content available on the web…. ad supported and free - just like always.

      So what does that exactly mean? Well some examples would be early copies of games sent to the AH team in support of upcoming releases (and early "Let's Play" and "This Is…" episodes for you), advertiser sponsorships to support the growth of the Rooster Teeth Podcast, AHWU and other AH shows. And the development of new partnerships that will help us produce more shows like The Gauntlet, A Simple Walk To Mordor and RWBY.

      Additionally, I will be partnering with Gus and Barbara to build RTX into the most unique and fun gaming/internet culture event in the country.

      And like all of you, I'm a huge fan of everything RT.
      I've been following RvB since the first episode (yea, I was an active participant with the thousands of you in taking down the teleNetworks servers trying to get a copy of RVB ep 1) and I'm a huge fan of RT's live action stuff, especially Immersion and the RT Shorts series. (rumor has it that i was the cop at the end of Unusual Suspects).

      So thanks again for your support as I assist in ensuring that RoosterTeeth.com and AchievementHunter.com continue to be the best sites on the net!

        Hey Triiv. I am not muslim, but my father is. He was born in Syria and met my mom in Italy. He gave me his name which I am proud of. I was born and raised in the US but have many family members still in Syria suffering through the war over there. It is very sad for us to see. Thank you for being a fan of Rooster Teeth. We appreciate fans like you!

      newer version
      I am interested in providing Monty and the rest of Team RWBY, with ideas and was wondering if you could recommend me. I am putting one of my earlier ideas below. Tell me if it is any good.
      This is the updated version
      A guy named Lan Jingshen, he uses a pair of long nun chucks with guns at the ends, the nun chucks can connect into a staff, and when connected the guns gain more fire power and can fire in the directions the tips are pointing at. Also it can become a bow if he bends the chains at the right angles. However, his true forte is hand to hand combat. He has high mastery of Aura (Meditates daily to train his Aura), his semblance is manipulation of pure energy, and when using his full strength, blue lines cover his entire body and he gains enhanced abilities. He has messy black hair with azure highlights, wears a pair of glasses that change into a mask when he begins combat, has a blue and black trench coat along with a pair of black pants with two blue steaks running down the sides, and when fighting takes off the coat in this case he wears a blue and black tank top, Also wears black gloves. Height wise he would be a bit taller than Yang. Body is covered with scars of various shapes and sizes due to his frequent fights with High level Grimm. Large tattoo on his back (I’ll send you a rough sketch of it if you like the character). His combat style is formless, and draws from a myriad of martial arts styles. He also has a pet Golden Retriever, the golden retriever enjoys stealing other people’s laundry, and always tries to kiss up to people.
      I would also like to put in his personality in case it is (and some back story too). A calm cool guy, who's always the peacemaker, and is very devoted to whatever he sets his mind to, he would also be very learned, polite, and versatile ( able to use most weapons if necessary) Doesn't speak very loudly, and is sometimes ignored. Very good at making friends and is rather social, in a detached way ( but although there are many who he calls friend, before he met team RWBY there were none he truly believed to be his friend, except his master). Believes that the best way for a person to become stronger and learn is for them to experience things themselves, so he often keeps knowledge to himself, even if it would be beneficial for the other person to know. He is wise far beyond his years, one of the main reasons he came to Beacon was to find that “special someone†his grandpa always told him about. I think it would be humorous if he developed a crush on Yang, and as a result becomes very awkward and a bit clumsy whenever she is near. He also trains in a lot of his spare time in fact his daily regime is kill 10 powerful Grimm a day. Back story is that he woke up by the sea when he was 4 with no memory, he is found by the nearby villagers and is taken care of, during this time he almost lived in local library, and educated himself there. He later meets a man who would become his teacher; a white tiger Faunus named Brom Silverfang, who was a founding member of White Fang, but left after some of the organizations more brutal operations. Lan makes his nun chuk/staff/ gun from parts found in a dump in a city he travels to. He also learns a variety of skills on his travels (cooking, clothes making, engineering, zoology, etc.) but has almost zero pop culture knowledge. During his travels, he joined White Fang for a few months and also was employed by the Schnee company for a few years (currently owns some of its high value stocks), in both cases he learned many of the secrets in both organizations. He also has experience in the underground crime world (learning the ways of the street). I think it would also be fun if at one point he encountered Yang and Ruby before they were adopted, because this could help them connect later in. Later in his travels with his master (when he is around 15) he discovers an ancient piece of technology called INDEX, and after gaining more mastery of his AURA he uses INDEX as a base to create a weapon called the ERUDITE ARMORY, which can transform into any weapon he knows how to make (able to fill the sky with a menagerie of different armaments). It is very heavy and difficult to use so he doesn't use it often, because of the massive amount of aura it consumes while in use. His master is later killed by a giant Grimm know as Shade the Eighth Terror (Shade cannot be harmed by purely physical attacks, and that is all Brom had , even though they were super powerful physical attacks that were able to cleave mountains), but by that time Lan was skilled enough to kill it with his Aura infused ERUDITE ARMORY. When the Shade died, part of its essence infected Lan, and slowly eats away at his soul, because of this his AURA was greatly weakened and now can only use the ERUDITE ARMORY for 30 seconds a day. However, Brom’s soul entered into Lan as well and helps him keep SHADE at bay (the downside is Lan now has the crazy, perverted old man yammering at him 24/7). Was noticed by BEACON and gained a combat scholarship just like RUBY after saving a group of elite hunters from high class monsters (this was before he battled with the SHADE, which took place 3 months before he was going to transfer to BEACON). Currently he is much weakened due to the SHADE’s essence infecting him (sometimes causing to lose control of himself and turning into a half-Grimm state), his current combat ability (without using the armory) is slightly higher than Pyrrha’s. Right now is trying to control the Grimm inside.
      He is 17 or 18 years old.
      Tell me what you think of him

      Hey!

      I've been dreaming of a job at RoosterTeeth or Achievement Hunter for a while now, and I wondered if you had any wisdom to share about what I should do now, to make that possible in the future. Thanks in advance.
