      What is your favorite color?

      Answered: Jan 9, 2018

      I am a big fan of a Cyan or light blue - but can't go wrong with Orange as well  smile

    • Routey13 asked RTcastMichael a question

      What are your favorite and least favorite shows/podcasts?

      Answered: Jan 8, 2018

      I personally love On The Spot and Off Topic for how random they can be (even with Off Topic being 10 hours long)

      I don't really have a least favorite, but Heroes and Halfwits was tough for me at first with my lack of D&D knowledge - now it is easier

    • Xuelder asked RTcastMichael a question

      Does broadcast really have to clean after all the different podcast/On the Spot Shenanigans? If so, you guys need a raise.

      Answered: Jan 5, 2018

      While some messes cast members will assist in.....yes the majority of shenanigans are cleaned up by broadcast crew members. From the puzzles to fires to spilled drinks crew cleans everything. Still the dirtiest item we have is probably the On The Spot spot.....crushed cookies and everything

      Hey everyone! Want to know a great feature of the RT site? QUESTIONS!

      I am making it a goal to be more active on here and maybe that will be post, photos around broadcast, behind the scene videos, who knows! Most of all - I want to be more active with you all (you know what I mean). So ask questions - send messages - I will be checking here as much as I can and will respond here (especially since I usually forget to message back on Twitter and Reddit)


      So - How are you  smiley

    • Extra Life 2017 Final Countdown

      2 months ago

      RTcastMichael RT Broadcast guy

      The day has finally come. *Extra Life 2017!!*


      A lot of work from a group of very talented people will finally be shown to the World. But the event is so much more than just a production. I can't thank everyone enough for helping fund this cause I have grown to care so much for. 


      While I want to show and tell you everything, some things are worth waiting for and this is one of them. Here is what I can fill you in for now. 


      Streaming - YouTube/Site/App/Twitch/Facebook (YouTube Rooster Teeth and TheKnow) Youtube on RT and site will also have a mutlicam feature to switch between main feed and BTS feed (BTS will include PiP of main feed as well so you dont miss anything)


      Archiving/Recording -

      YouTube won't post 24 hour stream and twitch will only keep for a few days after. We are recording a low res version good for the web. We will check file size and where to post. Details most likely after stream event. I hear everyone wanting the recording to watch again - we will do what we can. 


      Social

      Best way to contact is #rtextralife. Working to make YT and Twitch chat accessible to all as well as a quick way to information. If you need to reach Broadcast - we will do our best to read #RTbroadcast 


      We are working with new software so names and donations will be worked on midstream hoping to find our solution. So do your worst to try and break our system (please play nice

    • Sneak Peek into Extra Life 2017

      2 months ago

      Would you believe Extra Life 2017 still has some kinks to work on. We are wanting to make this the best extra life streaming experience you have had and share it with more people. Here is just a sneak at some items we are working toward for this Extra Life.


      • Viewing it in more places with more people. We are looking to stream to Youtube, Twitch, RT site/app, Facebook* (720p HD feed only)*
      •  BTS Feed for Multi-cams on YouTube. This feed will most likely include program audio and a PiP of the program feed with a BTS camera of our choice. Option for the RT site may be available after further testing (Multi-cam will be available on RT web site as we are looking to embed YouTube on the Extra Life page)
      •  LOUD NOISES! This still needs testing for compatibility, but we are looking to make LEET donations more present with on screen graphics that pop up and our favorite siren is making a return. Depending on Technical Director the quick cutting camera will return as well.
      • On Screen updates/counters. Items like wheel counts, URL updates, Upcoming events, Current Stretch goals. These will be updated when they are available or when needed. With all this information on screen, we hope to not pull attention away from the stream, but rather make sure everyone is informed. If this for any reason gets too crowded or too much, we may start limiting what appears on screen at a given time.
      • GAMEZ - Like....SO MANY GAMES. We are looking to have so many games playing during the event with 9 gaming stations. While a lot of the attention from the event will be main stage, we are looking to keep with Extra Life motto and play games for 24 hours.

      That's all I have to share with you at the moment, but I still have some tricks up my sleeves. I hope you are excited with the upcoming Extra Life as much as I am. Let me know what you are looking forward to the most or what you hope to see.

    • Is it 2018 yet?

      RTcastMichael RT Broadcast guy

      I know it is forward thinking, but I want to keep track of special/funny Broadcast moments over the 2017 year of productions and make a list/clips to remember and show off those moments we shared together this year.

      I am making it a goal to keep track of certain events in shows, but I want to hear what you like! Reactions - Close Ups - Bad Shots - "Sorry Broadcast" Moments - Yelling - you name it!


      Send your moments my way and I will keep track of mine as well. I may keep track of First Member content on a separate list. Let me know your favorite moments including: *What episode it happened in, What time in the show did it happen, Notes on what happened*.


      I look forward to laughing through the new year with you and having some incredible times with each new show! Now let's get through 2017 so we can celebrate it already!



    • Evv asked RTcastMichael a question

      Hey Michael! I was wondering how you got into broadcasting. ( What lead to your career in production? )

      Answered: Oct 12, 2016

      Hey Evv!

      Great question - hopefully I answer it well enough for you because it is a little crazy.

      I actually started off as a photographer with a small point and shoot and always loved being behind the camera. Kept working at it and challenged myself to improve and fell in love with the craft. 

      In college I turned photography into filming sporting highlights and next into the love of live shows and the nerve racking feel I get with every show.

      After that it was a lot of hard work and long hours and never stop improving.

      Have a great night!

  • About Me

    I write on the whiteboard during the prestream and switch the cameras to show you the best reactions! Enjoy the show.

      Hi Michael,

        Are you and the crew still running what look like BlackMagic's Studio and Cinema cameras for the Podcasts? From the control room perspective, what are your thoughts on them? Any problems arise mid feed? Any significant pros/cons compared to shooting with DSLR's in the past? I'd like to hear your input on RT's broadcasting setup.
