      THIS is the American Dream. Burnie, Matt, Geoff, Gus, Jason, Joel, Kathleen. They all built this (some more than others, but we can't discredit them just because they didn't retain a leadership role in the company). I can't even begin to imagine how proud they all must feel.

      That question is why there is apparently a behind-the-scenes war being fought between pretty much every other department in the company.

      Burnie talked about it on the Podcast and said that several other departments are fighting to have the space, they have not made an official decision yet.

    Probably my favorite RT Life yet. There was something both sad and sweet about this, and all it was was changing buildings. RT has somehow made moving office spaces heartwarming. How the hell?

    I really needed motivation to finish my current animation project in 2 weeks, and wanting to work there more than ever really did it. Even if it's just a dream that will one day be crushed.

    From 5 dudes in a spare bedroom and a few of their friends, to a full blown production company that has a crew of literally hundreds.....it never ceases to amaze me how far they've come and how much they've already done.  While I wasn't a fan from the very beginning, having only discovered RT by Season 4 of RvB, I can still say that I am happy to have been able to watch these guys grow.

      Wouldn't surprise me. It's really the core of the company. The two biggest shows are animated, and RTAA isn't far behind.

    how many studios do they have now? like 3? there's stage 5, which includes the know, and i assume administration, live action, etc., and eventually something else since the vacant space still needs to be filled. this studio for animation. i forget what departments filled the third studio, i assume game dev is in this one, but that's just a guess. god damn, still amazed at how much the company has grown and still growing.

      Stage 5 which was animation and broadcast, its now going to be broadcast and live action production/filming space. Stage 3 which is live action if I remember right. Soundstage is the building next door which AH and lets play share with another company. The Bungalow where management lives. I think they are currently in 4 buildings

    I see no way in which that ramp could end in disaster for anyone with the propensity for screwing around like the animation team.


    Nope.


    No way at all for anything to go wrong there.


    But, you know, just in case, I think I might have an idea for where the crash pad should live from now on.
