    • Gauntlet 2 Try-outs at RTX!

      4 years ago

      matt

      That's right, the Gauntlet is back! Season 2 is going to be even bigger and better, starting with try-outs at RTX!!!

      We'll be holding high score competitions in 4 games at the Gauntlet booth:
      - Game 1: Trials Evolution - Friday 7/5, noon to 2:30pm
      - Game 2: Geometry Wars 2 - Friday 7/5, 3:30pm to 6pm
      - Game 3: BattleBlock Theater - Saturday 7/6, 9:30am to 1pm
      - Game 4: 'Splosion Man - Saturday 7/6, 2pm to 6pm

      From the winners of those contests we will choose 16 semi-finalists that will compete on the Center Stage on Sunday 7/7, 10:30am to 11:30am. It's going to be a a lot of fun!

      Now the rules:
      - Contestants must be at least 18 years old as of July 5, 2013 - the first day of RTX. If you were born after July 5, 1995 you will not be able to participate. No exceptions.
      - You must be available at any point during the entirety of RTX. If you are planning to leave early Sunday or have some other obligations during the show you should not try out.
      - You must be available to be in Austin for our main shoot from Sept. 22 - 28, 2013. Those dates are very important. If you can't be in Austin that week, do not try out.
      - You can compete in more than one game and get back in line to try again as many times as you want. However, you cannot be a semi-finalist in more than one game.
      - You must be willing to appear on camera.
      - You must have fun and not be a grumpus.

      This year on the show we are going to be joined by some special guests and the prize money will be going to charity. We'll have a lot more details on the show later this summer, so be on the lookout. We can't wait to meet our new Gauntlet contestants at RTX!

    • Rooster Teeth shoot on Sunday morning!

      4 years ago

      matt

      So... we're shooting something on Sunday morning during RTX. Can't say what exactly, but if you want to be in a Rooster Teeth production, and don't mind getting a little wet, then we can use you. Here are the details:

      Location: 4th St. and Trinity (southwest corner by convention center)
      Time / Date: 7am - 9am, Sunday 7/7
      Dress: Your choice, but we suggest not wearing white. It might get wet and become see-through. We aren't making RTX Gone Wild.

      If we have too many people we might have to turn a few of you away (apologies in advance), so please be on time at 7am, and please be well behaved. There will be RTX Guardians on hand to tell people what to do. Please listen to them. We're going to try to do this quickly so we can be done by the time RTX opens at 9am. Everyone who came out to the shoot last year was totally awesome and we're looking forward to doing it again!

      By the way, in case we forgot to mention it, YOU MIGHT GET WET.

    • A Short Thanks...

      4 years ago

      matt

      First of all, there is a new sponsor-only extended version of the latest RT Short. I'm hilarious in it and Joel is also there so check that out.

      I won't lie, that short was brutally exhausting to film. We did it over 4 loooong, action-packed days, running all over Austin like crazy from downtown to an amusement park to the cliffs on the greenbelt. Joel got so tired that he had to take naps on my giant stuffed banana between shooting. That sounds like it's code for something but it isn't. Giant stuffed bananas are surprisingly comfy.

      Huge thanks to everyone who helped and made that insane adventure possible, including Dr. Pepper, iFly Austin, and Austin's Park and Pizza. And an especially big gracias to all of our fans, friends, RTX Guardians and more who came out to be extras. You were awesome and I apologize for spitting so much fake blood on you. And Joel says "my bad" for spitting his own real blood on you. He's a method actor, couldn't be helped.

      Just wanted you to know a person calling himself teddy duck has posted a copy of RWBY best day ever on you tube. I was under the impression that this was supposed to be for MEMBERS ONLY. doesn't this violate your copyright of intellectual property. I think this diminishes our status as members, not to mention those people as paid sponsors?

      Hi Matt!

      I was a Guardian at RTX working at the store and ran into you a few times throughout and just wanted to say your speech for us at the end of Sunday was awesome, thank you.

      I think one of my favorite moments of the weekend was riding inside the elevator with you at one point where you accidentally got off on the wrong floor- it made me laugh until I realized I did the same thing sigh...

      Hey Matt,

      I am not sure if you will see this but I was in line for the Lazer Team cattle call last Sunday but it got cut off just before I got in. I decided I wanted to somehow validate my waiting in line so I made an audition tape using the slide you gave us. It was pretty easy to remember the lines for that one. I sent a copy to Brandon only because I had his email but if there was some way I could get a copy to you or the casting director, that would be swell.

      I understand you probably have lots of people who have auditioned already and don't have time to look at another one, but I would never know unless I tried right? Promise it is worth your time.

      Cheers,

      Cody Hawkins

        Thanks again!

      Hey Matt, you may remember me as being that really awkward fan at the charity event lol. I feel the need to explain myself, I'm really not that awkward in real life, it's just you where the first person I met so I spazzed out when I saw you, plus booze was involved. So here's to beer, " the cause, and solution to all of life's problems". Thanks for listening 😅

      Hey Matt, we met twice at RTX and I was wondering if you could send me a friend request if you get a chance (I put up a picture of us on my profile). But I completely understand if you're busy, especially with projects like Lazer Team and Day 5.
      Congrats on those accomplishments for Lazer Team by the way. Most funded movie, that's something to be really proud of. You've worked so hard and so long, I know it'll all pay off and I'm sure they'll both end up great. Nobody deserves those achievements more than you.

      I was just wondering what sort of production help you would be needing this year for RTX. As a Guardian, I can be pretty flexible and I know I did some good last year. I had an absolute blast working alongside Charlie, and would love to work on RTX production stuff again this year.

      Thanks!

I'm 13, almost 14, and live in Texas and I'm interested in auditioning for a role if there is any for someone like me. If there isn't and you need volunteer extras, I'm all in for it! Thanks!

I would love to work at your company so if you ever need an assassin for anything, I would truly appreciate the consideration. I also have experience in goat farming and make an excellent latte. If you are interested, please e-mail me at an undisclosed e-mail address. I cannot give you my contact details, as good assassins don't really do that sort of thing. Sorry.

      The information that we need to cover for our assignment are the following:
      -Any information about finance
      -Efficiency in your company
      -Marketing
      -Sales and the team
      -Production and quality control
      -Mechanisation
      -Your company's environmental and sociological concerns
      -Personnel issues and OHS policies

      Your help in this would be greatly appreciated, alternatively any pamplets, resources, other contacts that you could provide us with for further research would be of great help.
      Thank you kindly and we look forward to hearing from you.

      Sending this out to all of you guys at RT. I wanted to thank you for the hours of entertainment you have all provided me. For awhile I was unemployed and your videos helped keep me sane, and then last month I was diagnosed with some pretty crazy brain cancer. Recovery is going well, the videos help again to fight boredom. I'm in treatment now, and my first Radiation/Chemo recovery period hits right around RTX, so I've got my RTX tickets purchased, and I hope to be there to shake your hands, and maybe buy you a drink.

      Thank you again,

      Not sure if you have heard about this [http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2615694/Loner-schoolboy-murder-suspect-enjoyed-video-games.html] or not, but it makes me sick. One of the best companies in the world, designed to help people laugh and feel better, is being blamed, alongside with video-games (shocking) for yet another act of violence. It is a common thing that video-games are the scapegoat for the media when it comes to violence and I will accept that, even though studies have shown otherwise, but when they overstep their boundaries and start pointing fingers at one of the nicest companies ever, that is where I get angry. They have no right blaming Rooster Teeth/ Achievement Hunter for the acts of violence and saying that you guys influenced him to be violent. It makes me want to tell the media to shut up about something they don't know about, and they have plenty of other scapegoats. I hope this doesn't affect you guys with the media, with them thinking you are all violent and terrible people when you are the polar opposite, and you guys will still be around.

      Hello Matt. My name is Nathan. I started watching Rooster Teeth/Achievement hunter science I was 9. and ever scene, I've wanted to work at Rooster Teeth. Eventually, I will go to Full Sail university for animation design and motion capture as well as editing. (I also wanted to make games). any ways, when I graduate or during collage, I wanted to "apply for a job". now currently, I have none of the skills needed. But believe me, for my dream job, I will learn anything and every thing necessary to do so. So if you actually read this (I don't know how busy your work is) then please remember me because one day, I will send in a resume to apply for a job at Rooster Teeth. I've sent a message just like this to Burnie already, but I was eager for a reply.

      Dear Burnie,

      My name's Chris and I'm applying to the recently posted position of Audio Operator at Rooster Teeth. I started preparing my application as soon as I heard about the job on the Rooster Teeth Reddit page. I have a question regarding hiring people who live abroad.

      I think I'm a great candidate for the job but I currently reside in the UK. I would absolutely be willing to move but I just needed to know if you hire people internationally. I know you have employed people like Gavin and Barbara in the past but I understand that you had worked with them for years before they started a full-time position in Austin. I have a university degree in Music Technology which I know helps when applying for a visa although I know it is a lot more complicated than that.

      Thanks for your time, hope to hear from you soon,

      Chris

      Hi Matt,
      I know you probably get this a lot, but I am really looking into trying for a career at Rooster Teeth and would really like to know anything more I can do to successfully gain a career at Rooster Teeth. I have taken the advice from you all and am making a portfolio of all my work, it includes various 3D models and amateur movies/ editing jobs I have accomplished. I have about one year of experience in 3D modeling however I am still in high school and will have at least two years of experience by the time comes when I wish to submit my resume. Though I am still in high school I hope you message me back soon so I can take time to prepare my portfolio. I hope that you read this and consider messaging me about this.
      Thank You,
