      RT's Community Content of the Week

      An exciting new project has cropped up in our community!

      The Burnie Journey: An RT Community Docuventure!!!

      Docventure = Documentary + ADVENTURE!

      A joint venture of @Count3D and @FriscoFlame. Part documentary and part found footage. A grand journey featuring RT Community members, American landscapes, road trip culture, and shenanigans!


      These lads are looking for project funding. If you have a few dollars, would you be willing to pitch in?
      Would you be even more willing to pass this project around? Spread some love!

      The Funds provided by our contributors will help along the trip with:

      Fuel
      Food
      Lodging
      Fulfillment of Perks
      Increase Quality of Production


      Various perks are available, but my favorite PERK is "As soon as we hit our initial $5,000 goal, we will be donating 25% of the amount above our goal to the charity Child's Play." Not only will you help production, but you will also be contributing to one of our community's favorite charities!

      All important information on this fantastic project is located in the link smiley12.gif

      Good luck and see you on the road!

    • Community Online Harassment Discussion

      3 years ago

      RT's Community Content of the Week

      From a recent post by @lozelda

      It seems to come up in waves. This is not a new topic for the RT Community, and it's not a new topic for me. Somehow we have to keep circling back to it, and somehow it seems to be a little bit worse every time.

      The harassment has to stop.

      There have been a number of journals from various members of the community over the last 2 weeks on this, from those who have been harassed and from those who have witnessed it or seen the aftermath it causes. This is something that strikes me in a personal way, and to say I have "strong feelings" on it is an understatement. However, only so much can be said with a monologue. With the frequency at which community members are being driven away from the site, a speech is only so effective.

      At this stage, a conversation is much more useful. So that's what we're going to do.

      Myself, @SailorTweek, @Newbs, @GB330033, and @desayjin will be sitting down to talk about the RT community and how this issue is plaguing it, and we invite you to be a part of the discussion. We will be streaming the call, and will be keeping an active eye on the chat to address any comments from the community. If you have any comments or stories of your own that you would like to share with us ahead of time for the purposes of the conversation, please let one of us know!

      The stream will be at 7PM EST on Tuesday, October 7 here. I will be posting the link again both here and on Twitter when it goes live. This is something that is important to us as a community, and the more of us that can be a part of the discussion on what needs to change, the faster we can make that change happen and make the community a better place for everyone.


      Join us in this important discussion. Our community is one of the most incredible, giving, hard working, and creative in existence. Let's strive to make it one of the safest.

    • Community reboot Monday

      3 years ago

      RT's Community Content of the Week

      Hello people, as we're having a -sortish- reboot for the RTCCotW, here's one post I promised you.

      @Teatard had a movie project for his school, which he needed a kickstart for a while back. Here's a little reminder:
      Synopsis
      When the role of a lifetime falls straight onto struggling actor Aydens lap, he cannot believe his luck. It seems that his luck is finally changing, and that he might finally be able to make something out of himself.
      The play in question has Ayden playing Seth, a young man with a God complex and little regard for his fellow men. The polar opposite of Ayden. If he's to give his best possible portrayal, he's going to have to get into character.

      This story is built upon the concept of isolation and identity, specifically, how an identity can be destroyed from within by ones psyche. It's being created with the intention of creating an artistic and visual experience that evokes a multitude of emotions.

      And guess what? THE FILM IS HERE. So sit back, grab some popcorn and enjoy.

      EDIT: I am realising now his profile is deleted, yet in loving memory of warned/teatard's departure from the site, I'll post it anyway.

    • Another AUdition Opportunity!

      3 years ago

      RT's Community Content of the Week

      MORE CHANCES TO BE PART OF COMMUNITY CREATED CONTENT!

      @Red_Uncle had announced auditions for the machinima project Undone earlier in the week.

      He is also seeking people for a separate project

      I'm looking for people with decent webcams or camcorders (we're talking at least 1280x720 resolution or higher) to help me with another project I've been working on that's intended to launch in May, but I may delay a month to try and better prepare if need be.

      What it is:
      It's not a machinima project: it's an analysis of various elements/parts/aspects that are commonplace in the video game industry such as storytelling, characterization, immersion, world building, nostalgia, genre, and etc.

      Why do I need someone else involved?:
      The analyses of these elements are indeed my opinion, but I will be expressing them in the tone of a character who has his mind set a certain way and I figure it would be more interesting with someone else to provide occasional counterpoints to my thoughts and opinions. However, it doesn't just stop there. You wouldn't just be a counterpoint voice/face; you would be another character,,, in a sense... I don't want to say too much about it here and spoil the fun/surprise of it.

      I also don't need just ONE person for this; I can bring in quite a few others on this from time to time because I have a way of being able to characterize you and give us a good setup for banter. I'd like to say more, but again not here.

      If you wanna analyze the hell out of game industry elements/parts/aspects with me and don't mind putting your face on the web as well as a persona: email me at RaziRedUncle@aol.com and I'll provide you with a list of my potential topics. If you see something you'd like to talk about I can slate you to be opposite of me in that particular video.

      Young (at least 17 please), old, man, woman; it doesn't matter; the characters I can plan for you are all-inclusive.


      All questions can be answered by privately messaging or emailing @Red_Uncle

      If you're not the type to audition and just want to experience the content, be sure to subscribe to the Backward Rocket Studios youtube channel!

    • Backward Rocket is looking for VOICES

      3 years ago

      RT's Community Content of the Week

      @Red_Uncle of Backward Rocket Studios is opening up auditions for parts in the upcoming machinima project: UNDONE

      group96c974552b3f2839fcc751e7f12679ce4e4

      All of the details and character descriptions are HERE


      Parameters for Submission:
      If you want to "audition" for one of the roles below I only ask that you can fulfill certain criteria-

      1.) No one who sounds under 17, please- Most of these characters are well into their 30s and 40s so I don't want to waste time on submissions that are obviously from someone that obviously doesn't at least somewhat sound the part. I'm expecting you to know if you fit the description.

      2.) Make sure you have a decent quality mic- If I hear a lot of fuzz or feedback; it's not going to bode well for your submission.

      3.) Make sure you can actually perform the role and put some heart into it- Give it your best shot! If you can't get loud enough because of your living situation or just seem kind of meh about your delivery... well, you get the idea.

      4.) Be prepared for a long-term commitment- The behind-the-scenes work might take some time to fulfill (months, I'd expect) and you may be called on for more lines and sounds in the future.

      5.) Final note: Have fun with it and feel free to audition for multiple parts if you'd like; you might set your eyes on one of the roles, but not realize how well you could fit another!


      Be sure to check out the Backward Rocket Studios youtube channel for previous projects and the current Machinima Mixed Bag!

      Have fun! smiley12.gif

      Hello everyone! Sorry to get all that dust up from this place and bugger everyone with it, but I just wanted to get your attention.

      You see, I have a friend on this place, as people do. And he's making some content. Some would even say community content. But I'm not talking to you because I want to show it just yet. I'm talking to you because it's not finished, and it needs your help. If you do, I'll promise to keep you updated on the progress:

      Let's all be serious
      For once.

      I'm making a short film, titled Ayden & Seth, and we're attempting to get some funding.

      www.kickstarter.com/projects/1322630102/ayden-and...

      Synopsis
      When the role of a lifetime falls straight onto struggling actor Aydens lap, he cannot believe his luck. It seems that his luck is finally changing, and that he might finally be able to make something out of himself.
      The play in question has Ayden playing Seth, a young man with a God complex and little regard for his fellow men. The polar opposite of Ayden. If he's to give his best possible portrayal, he's going to have to get into character.

      This story is built upon the concept of isolation and identity, specifically, how an identity can be destroyed from within by ones psyche. It's being created with the intention of creating an artistic and visual experience that evokes a multitude of emotions.

      Anyway, to make this as good as possible, we need a little bit of funding.
      I spent more hours than I care to admit on this site when I was younger, and met some amazing people. I hope that someone can help. If anyone can share this, or even pledge any amount, you'll be helping me more than you'll ever know..
      Not that I know if anyone even uses this site anymore...

      So...dicks.[/quote[

      That's all. Thanks for listening <3
