Miles and Kerry Go Ape in New Zealand

RT Life: Miles and Kerry Go Ape in New Zealand

Miles and Kerry travel to New Zealand to visit the WETA workshop and test out their performance capture process in the lead up to RTX.

This video is sponsored by War for the Planet of the Apes. Rooster Teeth visits Weta Digital to see the process that Andy Serkis goes through to become Caesar in War for the Planet of the Apes.


Synopsis: In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.

    Im surprised they have stayed loyal to RoosterTeeth for that long when they probably can get cool opportunities working with Productions like these.

    The appearance of "Sponsored by War for the Planet of the Apes" at 9:05 is the perfect way of highlighting the ridiculousness of the situation.

    Why is Rooster Teeth's own media player so bad? It has taken me 25 minutes to watch 10 minutes of content. My internet connection is fine, there are no other programs using bandwidth, and yet this video stops every 5 seconds in order to buffer for 10.

    JUST PLAY THE VIDEO!

    Why?!?

      We've been asking that question for years, and yet they still haven't fixed it to where it works properly. I can watch 1080p on other sites fine, but on here the best I can do reliably is 480. I love RT, but it's ironic that a company that only exists because of internet videos, has one of the least reliable web players out there. It was supposed to be better once they switched to HDMI last year, but honestly it's mostly been worse over all for a fair number of people......

    Dear god, someone let Kerry get some sleep. Those bags under his eyes are as big as his eyes themselves are. Look, I know you have a lot of work to do, but having you pass out from exhaustion isn't how we want you to go......

    How Hard was it for you three to not just fall over laughing during that interview? It looked like it took EVERY GRAM of self control not to just spit laughter all over each other.


    Had to watch it twice!


    BONES!

    My god that last interview. I love seeing you guys geeking out and I absolutely lost it when you all cut to the two of you sitting there. That already had my laughing but the fact that you pointed out the couch and then proceeded to ignore it and stay with the bit was amazing. All of that stuff is why you all are my favorite people at RT  crown Amazing job

    "...you have to learn how to specialize, but not in a vacuum."


    That quite possibly, is the most useful advice for any profession.

    There is so much focus on the motion capture actors, and yes they deserve the praise they get, but it's so unfortunate that the rest of the artists get forgotten. It's so refreshing to have mention of the modellers, riggers, mocap clean-up and keyframe animators, and VFX artists that make mocap a workable solution. And to see how rough the raw mocap is.
    Thank you.

    As someone studying VFX it was interesting to see, especially the MoCap. It was also really interesting to see their set-up in Maya.

    So unfare that they have several meters of workable space to use for their MoCap though xD We had like 3x3m of space and we had to walk 10m....that sucked. (Yay for animation layers)

    In general a really fun video, professional as always :D

      IIRC on one of the latest DMC3 eps Miles said they were basically there solely to do the thing and then back- plane scheduling didn't allow for it. Don't doubt that they totally would've if they could.
