      Dustin LEAD ANIMATOR

      First off thanks to everyone who came to one of our panels, this was a big year for us. But there is one thing I would like to add now that RTX is over, and I'm not in front of a lot of people. There is something I need to get off my chest. Something I don't think I was emotionally strong enough to say in person. But definitely something that needs to be said. I feel like some people who attended the animation specific panels should know the reason we did not specifically bring Montys name up a lot. We all miss him and there is not a day that goes by that we do not think of him. The animators that had the opportunity to work with him would not be the animators or the people they are today with out him. There isn't a single day I don't find my self channeling some knowledge I learned from him. I know for a fact there was more than a few of us who had a hard time with it in the lead up to RTX (myself included) it's a sensitive and personal subject for some of us. I just want the fans to know we have not forgotten him, and we are doing the best we possibly can to uphold his legacy at RT animation.


      Respectively and with love,

      Dustin

      So Glad we are finally able to share chapter one with y'all. A lot of people pored a lot of Time and love into this volume, it has been an especially emotionally charged one. I want to thank everyone for the support I've seen in the comments. We will continue to crank away at this season to bring you the best episodes we can.

      Thanks,

      -D

  • About Me

    Hi Im Dustin, I have been working at RoosterTeeth as an Animator since 2012. I am fortunate enough to work with some of the most passionate talented people I have ever met. Together we make cartoons. I have worked on every animated project RT has made in some way...except probably Camp Camp. I enjoy watching movies and playing with my crazy Dachshund Penny.

      hay Dustin, I would like to start working on a live action series based in the same universe as RvB but i have now clue who i should ask if it is ok to do so. i'm hoping to spend $15,000 to $20,000 on it so i just want to get an "ok" before i start.

      Hey, Dustin, I gotta ask, are you the only skater in the office?

      • DogBomber

        Sick dude, it's always great to know a fellow skateboarder! That's too bad about your wrist. I'm hoping to maybe intern at RT if I'm able to get out to Texas for college and it's rad to think that if you'd have me I might some day be skating with the "big dogs" of Rooster Teeth haha.

        I am the only one who skates regularly outside of work. but I hurt my wrist(on my animation hand) skating a bowl during rwby season one. so I havent skated much since then at least not crazy stuff. I just been skatin to take the trash out or ride to the store. havent hit the skatepark in over 6 months! alot of people keep boards here tho and its not uncommon during crunch to take skate breaks in the parking lot. I think shane used to skate alot when he was younger. and austin usually is always down to go skate with me when i do go

      You were a casualty in my last friend clearing purge, so I guess that technically makes us even.

        That was the thing, I was trying to make back ups and something fucked up. No idea what, though.

        Oh well, I guess it happens. I'm probably gonna buy another external to back up my backups. Just go way overboard.

        How's RWBY coming along? I'll confess that I haven't watched Volume 2 yet (university will do that) but I plan to.

        danm man that sucks!! you gotta have back ups !! when Im working I version up constantly so I always have a fail safe file, that way if one corrupts I only lose a few hours of work instead of everything!! Im sorry that happened tho. I learned that lesson the hard way tho too. I guess its gotta happen to everybody at least once. well good luck I hope u recover it

        Not so good as of this morning. I've been working on an abridged series for months, and the project file vanished this morning. A shit tonne of work gone in a blink, and I don't know if I can get it back. So in terms of creativity, I'm drained.

        But otherwise, I'm doing okay.

        hey man thanks!!! lol its cool to know I have a few fans out there. but I would feel like a asshole if i didn't explain how the cast and crew banner actually works. in order for me to get one, I need to be certified full time employee. its a bummer bc ive been here for over a year now. but Im pretty much hired on a per project basis bc here at the studio we aren't always working on animation stuff. maybe hopefully someday ill land that full time spot..TRUST ME IM WORKING ON IT :) and maybe your page will help haha. either way i just needed to explain myself. smiley1.gif thanks again dude

      With this wave of people getting cast and crew tags, how have you still not got yours? I'm about to resort to making a group.
