  • On The Spot Valentine's Special

    Jon The Risemonger

    You wanna write some sexy prompts?


    • Go to and find a word or phrase for guests to guess a definition for.
    • Pro tip: try and find words/phrases that are not just weird sex position descriptions.


    • Come up with a 2 person scenario where the characters interact with each other a lot.
    • Be as descriptive as you want, this is a scene the guests have to play out.
    • Scenes that work best for this game have a high potential for rapid dialogue and confrontation.


    • Questions kids might ask an adult
    • Don't get caught up on the standards, get creative


    • Submit the opening line to a short story that guests can complete as a team
    • Ex: One day, a small boy was walking in the woods and happened upon a magic talking rock...
    • Keep the prompt short but odd details will make it better

  • Kathleen Kennedy and Ron Howard Talk About Transitioning Solo Away From Lord & Miller!

    7 months ago


    One of the biggest movie shake ups in recent memory was last summer when Chris Miller and Phil Lord were fired from their Young Han Solo movie mere weeks before filming was to wrap up. 

    Entertainment Weekly has a bunch of Star Wars related stuff hitting right now and one of their pieces is quotes from Kathleen Kennedy and Ron Howard about that time, what went down and where their mindset was when these crucial decisions were made.

    Ron Howard had this to say: “I know Chris and Phil. They’re incredibly talented guys, and all anyone at Imagine Entertainment wants to do is find a way to work with Chris and Phil, and that’s every bit as much the case today as ever, but when I learned that this change was happening, it just came in a moment where I was working on lots of new projects for Imagine, and I had not planned to direct anything last year. So then this came my way, and I was talking to Kathy, and the now tragically late Alli Shearmur, an old friend. I was reluctant, but I also began to feel that I could help.”


    He also said that Lord & Miller's fingerprints are still all over the movie, but he hopes fans won't be spending time in the theater trying to pick apart what's theirs and what's his and just let the movie play for them.

    Kathy Kennedy won't say a bad thing about Lord & Miller either, but did double down on the talk that they just weren't prepared to work in the way these films demand. 

    “I think these guys are hilarious, but they come from a background of animation and sketch comedy and when you are making these movies you can do that and there’s plenty of room for improvisation, we do that all the time, but it has to be inside of a highly structured process or you can’t get the work done and you can’t move the armies of people to anticipate and have things ready. So, it literally came down to process. Just getting it done.”

    Of course, all this is true... from their point of view. Lord & Miller have been jovial about the situation in the few public appearances they've made since all the turmoil, but they've mostly kept their heads down and focused on their participation in producing the upcoming animated Spider-Man film at Sony that will be seeing MIles Morales behind the mask and writing their followup to The Lego Movie. Right now we just have Lucasfilm and Howard's side of things. 

    I'm sure in time we'll get more of the fuller picture, but it's interesting to see a more detailed point of view of this massive event.

    Of course mid-stream changes isn't new and often isn't bad news. Michael J. Fox famously replaced Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly in Back to the Future after Robert Zemeckis shot half the movie (which Kathleen Kennedy produced, by the way). 

    We won't know if the final film survived until May, but I'm an optimist and I never walk in to any movie hoping to dislike it. Especially a Star Wars movie.

  • Help. I can't read British

    Chelsea FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RT Community Manager

    Recently @RTcastMichael and I have really gotten into the Great British Baking Show. He really likes it (won't actively admit it, so I'm outing him here) and I really like to get inspired and make my own bakes.

    But, I also found out that the recipes for what they're actually making ON the show also exist online - and in books (the books are what I want, but online will start). The books are way more comprehensive and have a CRAP TON of recipes broken out per season. 

    Oh man, what's this? Link to the recipe in question I'm wanting to try out, the Apricot Couronne from Season 2?

    BUT - the recipes are written in British measurements. I attempted to use an online converter and receive gibberish that looks like this:


    I was attempting to convert what 5 grams of salt is in American. Luckily, I can round with this one and be like, "Oh okay, roughly like 1 teaspoon of salt."

    Others, I'm not so lucky. 

    Surely there are bakers or Brits on here that have a little experience with translating recipes... Do you have any tips on this? Or should I seriously go out and buy a scale and learn how to measure things in grams?

    So, instead of taking the time to write something big and grandiose, I'm just going to fill this void with little things to say here and there to maybe get into the groove of writing things. :) 

    January 25th officially marked my 2-year Anniversary with the company! How time flies. Over the past 2 years, I've really come to appreciate a lot of things RT has to offer. One of the utmost importance, however, is the community! Without you all, I don't think I'd have a place here. So, thanks for watching (and enjoying? lol) our content! Additionally, I'm incredibly grateful to have made friends with so many of my colleagues. Something tells me this is all adding up to head towards a grand 2018 adventure!

    Question for you lovely peeplz:

    What's some of your favorite RT animated content from this past year? Is there anything sound related that really stuck with you from any of our shows? Let me know!

    Happy Friday!

    • These comics are insane! Hard to follow, dialog heavy and varying art styles from issue to issue. I don't even have a joke here it's just madness! Pass the bleach, Jocelyn!
    • With the thumbnail, intro music, intro and end slate, the conversion for Desk of assets is complete! 
    • Here's a real editor note for a change: There are a ton of nested sequences in this video. Might be a fun new game to pick them out! 
    • Two questions I thought of when using that Simpsons clip. What's your favorite season? And What's your favorite chalkboard gag?
    • How has there not been a Sonic Drive In/Sonic the Hedgehog cross promotion?! How!
    • Someone PLEASE succinctly explain to me the difference between hedgehogs, echidnas and porcupines. I don't understand.
    • "Chaos Knuckles" sounds like a fighting move in which you swing your brass knuckle-clad fists in rapid succession all over your opponent's face. 
    • On second thought "Chaos Knuckles" should be what we say right before we crack all of our knuckles and get down to business.

    LuxCommander Tech Artist - Animation

    Hi guys! My name is JD Arredondo, and I'm a Technical Artist/QA Technician with the Animation team. I've been working as part of the tech team since RWBY Volume 4 and recently got brought on full-time at the end of Volume 5. I've been a fan of the company like you all since the RvB days and previous to working at Animation had a brief internship over in the Live-Action department back in Spring 2015. 

    So what exactly am I doing on my journal here on the site? Good question! I'm still figuring all of that out myself, but I can guarantee that it will be dominated by sharing stories about my things I've been reading, watching and playing. I'm also totally up for answering any questions you might have about what it's like being on the Animation Tech team or being in the world of production in general. The goal is to make this space a very interactive blog where we can shoot the breeze about the things we love. Speaking of those things...

    It's a bit of a running gag in the Animation office that I'm a hard core Star Wars fan that has read one too many Expanded Universe novels, and I've been meaning to put a project together that chronicles that era of Star Wars. As it turns out, it lends itself very well to the journal format, so I'm planning on writing some posts that will go deep into the Star Wars Expanded Universe and look at the best and the worst it has to offer. That should start sometime in the coming week or two, so be on the lookout for that if you've ever had a passing interest of visiting or revisiting the Galaxy Far, Far Away before the Disney-era.

    See you guys soon!

  • Vlog Automation

    7 months ago


    A number of people have asked me about the automation in my house. I think a lot of people beliece I live in some kind of unobtainable future house but 95% of what you saw was installed by me and purchased off Amazon. In fact, the most expensive individual piece of tech (besides my car) is the Roomba, which isn’t an outlandish piece of tech.

    The whole purpose of that section of the Vlog was to show that really futuristic seeming tech is available right now. And some things that are really useful automated tools like programmable coffee makers and garage door openers have been around for decades.

    I’ll try to go shot by shot here and break it down.

    In bed

    Amazon Echo $39-115

    Spotify account $10/month


    Lutron Caseta light switch $55

    Cuisinart Coffee Maker w/ timer— $70

    Roomba 960 — $650

    Living Room

    9 Phillips Hue Bulbs — $540*

    Logitech Harmony Remote Hub — $300


    Phillips Hue Lamp bulb — $25

    Phillips Hue bulb (Joe The Cat Painting) — $40


    Caseta light switch — $55

    Nest Thermostat — $230


    My Smart Blind motors — $99 each

    Echo Dot — $39


    2015 Tesla P85D — a lot

    Using the Summon feature

    Controlled via third party app which communicates with Alexa

    Hamilton Garage Door Opener — est $250 (came with the house)

    *I really dislike Hue bulbs and wish I had never bought them. That room was the first I did and I quickly switched to the Caseta light switches after that. Could have done that room for 1/10 the cost and it’s a far more reliable solution.

    So besides the car (and the blinds which are cool to see but not really worth the time and money) you could replicate that whole set up for about the cost of a mid-level gaming PC and a weekend of work. It’s not cheap, but also not an impossible leap to have a “house of the future”

  • Joaquin Phoenix In The Running To Be Yet Another Joker For The DCEU?

    7 months ago


    Because we can't have enough cinematic Jokers Warner Bros is going after yet another new head to cover with pasty makeup and green hair. 

    They're planning a standalone, one-off Joker movie that Todd Phillips is producing and directing that for some reason will not feature their chosen cinematic Joker, Jared Leto. I mean, for all the good reasons it's not starring Jared Leto, but the studio is keeping him on anyway for further DCEU movies. 

    This doesn't make a damn bit of sense to me. Either commit to what you've done and give us a little consistency or recast. But what do I know? I'm just a nerd at a computer, not an exec making seven figures a year.

    Phillips has made his perfect Joker choice clear: He wants Joaquin Phoenix and Variety says Phoenix has weighed it and tentatively agreed. Contract negotiations haven't begun yet, so this is very, very early days, but it's what's in front of us right now.


    The Wrap's Umberto Gonzalez added on that Leonardo DiCaprio has also met with Phillips about the role multiple times. Now that would have been interesting considering just how much DiCaprio idolizes Jack Nicholson (and is slowly starting to morph into him as he ages), who very memorably played The Joker in Tim Burton's Batman.

    Phoenix's intensity is a very interesting component to bring to the character. I can see him actually making the Joker scary, which is about as far away from Leto's interpretation as you can get. 

    I don't object to him in the role, I just think it's stupid to be muddying the DCEU waters even further with multiple versions of the same character. If they have a smart script solution to that I'm all ears for it, but right now it sounds like a not great idea.

    Little known fact: If Phoenix does take on the role it won't be his first foray into the DC comics world. Way back in the early days of his career, his Leaf Phoenix days, he was in a show called Little Hercules and this happened... 

    So now he has to play The Joker just so this video becomes the most watched thing in the history of the internet. 

    What do you folks think?

  • Monster Hunter World Versus Destiny 2

    7 months ago

    Eddy Writer - The Know, Nomad

    Up until recently, I was an avid Destiny fanboy that used to obsess about my weaponry, light levels, and the series lore in general. But Destiny 2 turned out to be something that I just didn't find that much enjoyment in, especially when it came to the series's end-game and grinding. Lately, I've been seeing a whole lot of discussion online about how Monster Hunter World is a pretty good destination for the burned Destiny guardian...

    Eurogamer: Monster Hunter World has so much to teach other big budget games

    Kotaku: Monster Hunter: World Shows How Destiny 2's Grind Could Improve

    GamesRadar: Why do so many Destiny players seem to love Monster Hunter World all of a sudden?

    I've actually never played a Monster Hunter game before, so all of this is definitely intriguing to me. I know a lot of people who are playing (and deeply love) the newest entry, so I've definitely been a little curious to try it out myself. It's particularly interesting to see how this Japanese game has come over and found a huge audience in the West by outdoing the very thing that Western games have been trying to achieve for the last couple of years now. 

    I imagine a lot of that has to do with Capcom having years to experiment with multiple titles, whereas many of these big AAA live service games are having to do all of their growing up while thousands of players rage at them. And it also probably has a good bit to do with the fact that Monster Hunter in general has never been designed around the grind in order to increase "player engagement" -- rather, it's all just there in the base game for you to enjoy and have fun, without worries about recurring spending and all the other metrics that Western publishers are typically trying to observe. 

    Anyway, all that to say -- do any of you Monster Hunters out there have some things to add for me? Would I enjoy this game if I loved Destiny?

    Hearing JP Barlow speak almost a decade ago was a formative moment for me. I got to listen to him and Vint Cerf explain why the very foundation of the internet reflected a simple, unavoidable, and formative truth: information wants to be free. I think about that almost every day. It inspired me to pursue a career in independent digital media, and it led me to work here at RT.

    In his honor, posting a link here to A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace. I hope it energizes you.

    ...increasingly obsolete information industries would perpetuate themselves by proposing laws, in America and elsewhere, that claim to own speech itself throughout the world. These laws would declare ideas to be another industrial product, no more noble than pig iron. In our world, whatever the human mind may create can be reproduced and distributed infinitely at no cost. The global conveyance of thought no longer requires your factories to accomplish.

  • Rooster Teeth and The Know Is Giving You An Exclusive Preview Tour of Mondo's Newest Art Gallery!

    7 months ago


    Hey, guys. Exciting news! Tomorrow we'll be giving the whole RT community an early glimpse of Mondo's newest art show. Before doors open for their new event I'll be hosting a Facebook Live tour of all the coolest pieces on display. Artist Jason Edmiston will be joining us and showing us his 100 pieces of original pop art that he's created for this show.

    The show is a sequel to his popular Eyes Without A Face series. He's painted hundreds of pop culture eyeballs and tomorrow you'll be able to see everything he's got in store before anyone else! People have been in line since Wednesday to get in!

    To celebrate the good folks at Mondo have given us the debut of one of his pieces... which should be of particular interest to the RT community. Check it out:


    Here are some of his other famous eyeballs that'll be at the show:





    There's even rumors that he's unveiling a 22 foot long painting. He did King Kong's eyes in his original 2015 show. Can you think of any other giant pop culture character who would demand a 1:1 eyeball painting? I got some theories...

    Anyway, make sure to stay tuned to Rooster Teeth or The Know's Facebook pages tomorrow around 5:30pm CST for a live tour of the gallery and brag to all your friends that you were the first people ever to see what's in store!

    Those of you who tuned in to the season premiere of DEATH BATTLE on YouTube today might have noticed a new kind of Blue Apron ad. That little gem was directed by Noel Wiggins of ScrewAttack. It was edited by me and shot by the two of us. It stars the incomparable Austin Harper of ScrewAttack, Rooster Teeth's Cockbite of the Year 2017. It was a labor of love and something we all have being working towards in our careers for years. We really appreciate this award and have a lot of people to thank; Chad James, Sean Hinz, Ben Singer and everyone else over at ScrewAttack who believed in this passion project. We also want to thank everyone here at Rooster Teeth and of course, everyone over at Blue Apron, a better way to cook. Oh, they're playing the dubstep and that's my time. Thank you all! You like it, you really like it!

  • "I'll see what I can do"

    7 months ago

    andrekrat Live Action VFX/Motion

    Hi there! I guess I should introduce myself properly, my name is André Ouellette and I'm the VFX and Motion Graphics Designer for the Live Action department.

    I've been with RT for almost two years now, and I have had the pleasure of working on, at least in some capacity, almost everything that the Live Action department releases. It's a lot of ridiculous, stupid, awesome fun and every week is totally different.

    One thing I wanted to talk about is a mantra that I've really learned to embrace while working on Blood Fest these past few months. (Also something I'm very excited to talk more about soon). That mantra is "I'll see what I can do."

    It can be tempting, particularly when you're thrown a curve-ball of a shot request, to say "I can't do that" or "We don't have the time". But more often than not I find that once you sit down and unpack what needs to be done you'll be surprised at the kinds of solutions you come up with. VFX and Design are about problem-solving more than anything else. Whatever cheats and shortcuts you can get away with to make a shot work are fair game, as long as it looks good nobody cares how you got there.

    When you say "I'll see what I can do" you're refusing to admit defeat from the onset, you're immediately opening your mind to weird solutions and quite often those weird solutions will get you damn close, if not all the way there. And the best part is that you can file away that knowledge and use it in the future. The more you say "I'll see what I can do", the more you build a library of dumb tricks and cheats that you can rely on for the next shot.

    It's important to be realistic and honest in what you think you can accomplish, but it never hurts to dive into things and see what you get. I can't count the number of times I initially told myself that something was too dumb to work, or would look too fake, and found that I was totally wrong. My favorite moments of the work day are when I laugh at how wrong I am about impossible shots.

  • Instant Pot for Lazy People: Salsa Chicken

    7 months ago

    emilyweeks RT Office Coordinator

    Time for our regularly scheduled programming of instant pot adventures! 

    Tonight's recipe is the easiest recipe I have made with my pot so far. Huge shout out to @Becca for leaving this in the comments on one of my previous journals.

    Salsa Chicken

    This recipe made me six 4oz servings of chicken. Perfect for meal prep! As soon as the chicken was done, I measured and portioned it out immediately for refrigerating.

    I love how versatile this is! You can make tacos, rice bowls, salads; whatever the hell you want, really. Because I'm going the low-carb route, I made something in between a salad and burrito bowl with my chicken.

    2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast (you could probably use thighs for extra flavor if you wanted, but I opted for a leaner protein)

    1 cup salsa of your choice

    - Throw the chicken in your pot and pour your salsa on top. Give it a quick stir to really coat the chicken.

    - Close the lid, make sure your valve is closed, and select the Poultry option. Let cook for the default amount of time (it's 15 mins on my pot) and let the pressure release naturally after the cooking cycle is complete. Alternatively, if you have an actual Instant Pot branded pot, you should have a Manual function. You can cook this chicken on Manual pressure setting for 7 minutes. (I have a Crock Pot Express Pot, which doesn't have an explicit Manual button, so I just went with the Poultry option on default time and pressure.)

    - Open your pot and use two forks to pull the chicken apart, give things another good stir to coat, and you're good to go!

    - Optional: Here is how I constructed my salad/bowl if you're interested. I started off with 1oz spring mix and spinach greens, 1/4 cup black beans, 4oz of the chicken, and 1/8 cup shredded Mexican cheese.

    Tonight I needed something quick(ish) and easy to cook, because I left work later than I usually do, and still had some things I needed to accomplish at home. I threw everything in the pot, squeezed in a yoga practice while it cooked, then ate, and portioned out the remaining meal prep with plenty of my evening left to get things done. Winner winner, chicken dinner.

    Do y'all have any quick and easy go-to recipes? I'd love to hear them (so that I can make them).  blush
