    • Ask the Editor - Uno Edition

      1 year ago

      larrym Shifty Larry

      Seems you guys liked our last "Ask the Editor" segement that Kent did with the Battlefield Master Cut, so we thought it might be fun to do another one for our longest Let's Play ever - Uno: The Movie


      I asked you guys on Twitter for questions, and now here's some answers.


      @yesterdaydances - Honest question, how long did that monster take you?

      Probably about three work days total. At least half that time was just getting the multi-cam done. I'm certainly not going to say that part was difficult by any means, but it sure took a long time, especially when some of the turns took 2-3 seconds. It's a ton of cuts, and really more tedious than anything. 


      Once that was done, I did a pass on the audio to help bring up the low mumbles of hopelessness and bring down the ear-shattering cheers at the end. Once we recorded the Uno Credits Song, also had to "mix" that too (at least as best as that jumble of sound could be). 


      And finally, the credits. Took about six hours and a lot of the Moana soundtrack of repeat to build those, and honestly, I would have liked to do more. I ended up just not having enough time. Fun fact: I built the credits in Photoshop, so it outputs as a single png file. The final resolution on the credits was 1920 x 27000. 


      Here's what the finished project looked like on my end. If you look really closely, you can spot the text layer where I tell Gavin to go fuck himself.

      @ThePortmanpreau - How did you feel when hearing the boys say you didn't need to do any editing?

      Ha ha. That's a good one.


      @shannahconnell - Did you have to turn down Geoff's audio while he shrieked in delight?

      Tons. If I'm doing the calculations correctly, Geoff's screaming in the untouched audio was about 8 times louder than what you all heard. Luckily, I was at the office when they finished filming the Let's Play and could clearly hear the screaming through the walls. Kept me from being surprised by it later, and I fortunately never had to hear it quite that loud.


      @Tizzi_Q - How much alcohol was consumed so you could get through this nightmare?
      Not enough.


      @bisexualtreco - How much do you hate UNO now?
      Not enough.


      @superjoebro - Were the credits random for Uno: The Movie or did you get names from somewhere? 

      We tweeted out this right before Thanksgiving.


      1z30575.png


      Anyone who submitted to the form got thrown into a giant list. I looked through everyone's names and jobs, took my favorite 10 jobs, and gave them a special spot in the credits. Everyone else was added to the credits based on when they submitted. I think over 600 or so of you made it in out of nearly 2,000 submissions.


      @sammmyd_ - Whose idea was it for the long ass credits?
      Mixture of Geoff and me. Geoff wanted to do credits for the video and wanted there to be a credits song. Getting the community to submit names and doing the actual movie credit titles was mine. In order to get all the technical credit names right, I used the 2014 Paddington Bear movie as a hard guide for structuring the Uno movie credits. You can go see for yourself the exact moment I gave up!


      @mason2498 - Would you rather edit Uno: The Movie or Monopoly: The Motion Picture?
      Well, I did edit both parts of Dark Monopoly 2 (and the eventual part 3+), so I guess both. What I'm really looking forward to is the Band of Brothers style 10-part mini series for Risk.


      @APilch31 - How quickly did you say 'Fuck that!' when they were talking about how many cards they went through?

      I considered it for half a second, saw I was already an hour into the video, said "Fuck that," and refused.


      @shaputapu - So what's that card count, Larry!?
      1,271


      @blondiegibbs - How many times did you sigh/laugh out loud?

      Sigh - Realizing the run time.
      Laugh - Early in the game when there were 5 or 6 reverses in a row.
      Laugh/Sigh - Gavin getting over 400 points while the video still had two hours to go.
      Laugh - Geoff picking up 14 cards in a row so late into the video.


      @DeaconDX7 - Did it give you any ideas for fanfics?

      No.


      @Killa_chris00 - Another fanfic?

      No no no no no.


      @Lysa_Bell - When will we get "Uno the Movie"- the Fanfic?

      Do I really have to? Fine. Maybe? There's always Extra Life 2017.


      @livhaus - Do you need a hug Larry?
      Always.



      And that's it for this round. Stay tuned for the next Ask the Editor where you can ask Neal how therapy's going after editing the 10 hour Uno Part 3. 


      That's not true. We wouldn't do a 10 hour Part 3.


      I'll probably be 20.


      Fuck.

    • You Guys Want Some Extra Life Achievement Hunter Erotic Fan Fiction?

      1 year ago

      larrym Shifty Larry

      So yeah...Extra Life was this weekend. And there may have been a Wheel of Destiny spin asking for someone from Achievement Hunter to read Achievement Hunter erotic fan fiction. And there may have been a concern about getting the author's permission before reading fan fiction. And that may have given me the idea to write some erotic Achievement Hunter fan fiction, because hey, I give them permission to read it. And I may have written some smutty Achievement Hunter fan fiction. And Trevor may have read it. And I may not be able to look any of my coworkers in the eyes today. But hey. It was for the kids.


      Lots of you have been asking to read it. So here it is. Did a little typo clean-up, but all the 69-ing's still there. Have fun! 


      _______________________________________


      Giving a Little Extra at Extra Life

      A fan fiction by Larry Matovina 


      Finally. The annual Rooster Teeth Extra Life stream. The day so many Rooster Teeth fans had been waiting for. They never knew what kind of shanhooligans to expect from their favorite RT staffers. Would Gus die of alcohol poisoning? Would Matt and Jeremy up the ante, this time making out with tongue for three minutes straight? Or would something totally unexpected happen? 


      The cameras turned on and the stream began. Jack was sitting, stroking his majestic beard. To his right was his charity partner in crime, Caiti, who was looking stunningly Australian. To his left were Matt and Jeremy. You know Matt and Jeremy. The long-haired hairy beard guy and the one with the chameleon hair. 


      "As far as charity goes this year, heeeeeey!" Jack said. "If you donate $1337, you can make us spin the wheel of Destiny." 


      "You mean the wheel of Density," interjected Caiti. 


      "Yes. Yes. The wheel of Density. Anyway, we have to fill this thing up with some great suggestions. So send your suggestions using the hashtag wheel of destiny." 


      The Rooster Teeth community began sending in their suggestions. Everyone does a shot. Jack shaves his beard and Caiti eats it. Matt and Jeremy touch penis tips. The completely out-of-shape fuckers do minimal exercise. Lots of stuff. 


      "Alright. We're looking pretty good. We just need one more." Jack exclaimed. 


      Matt started scrolling through his phone. "Checking the Twitter right now...oooooh boy." A sly grin came across Matt's face. "Here's an interesting one. 'Jack and Jeremy 69. Make those Js into one big O." 


      Caiti gasped. "Oh fuck. Jack. You can't do that. You promised to be faithful to me forever." 


      "I did. You're absolutely right. We can't..."


      "Wait. Hold on." Matt interrupted. I mean, it's for the kids. 


      Jeremy froze - retreating into his thoughts. He thought for a minute. He thought deep. And hard. "Give me a minute to text Kat."


      Jeremy pulled out his phone. Before he could even unlock it, a text came in. "I'm watching the stream. It's cool. Go for it. I mean, It's for the kids." 


      Jeremy sighed. Deeply. "Fuck."


      "Yeah, like literally fuck," Matt said. 


      "Alright. Go ahead and put it on the board," Jack said sheepishly. 


      Caiti stood up, walked over to the Wheel of Destiny, and pulled out the marker. Jeremy and Jack 69. There it was. Immortalized on the wheel. 


      All of a sudden, the glitter bombs erupted across the screen. Donation after donation - all $1337. The ticker couldn't even keep up. Ten, twenty, thirty. They just kept coming. When the money dust cleared, ironically, there were 69 separate spin the wheel donations. 


      "Holy shit, you guys. I am stunned by your generosity." Jack said. "Guess I just have to hope to get lucky with those spins."


      Matt giggled. "Oh. You'll get lucky alright."


      Caiti grabbed the wheel and prepped. "Alright everybody. Let's go ahead aaaaaaand"


      Everyone joined in. "SPIN. THAT. WHEEL!!"


      Dickadickadickadicadickadickadicka. The wheel kept spinning. Fast. Then slower. And slower. Until finally it stopped. There it was. Jeremy and Jack 69. 


      Caiti gasped. Matt began laughing. "Ooooooh nooooo" Jack said. "No. We can't."


      Jeremy began unbuckling his belt. "Well. It's for the kids."


      Jeremy whipped off his pants. Then he walked over to Jack's seat and pulled him up. "Jack. I'm so lucky you worked on getting sexy this year."


      "You want to know a secret? It was all for this moment," Jack whispered. He grabbed Jeremy's head and pulled it towards his. They began kissing. Jeremy ran his hands through Jack's hair and through his beard. Jack moved his hands down to Jeremy's buttocks. He snuck his hand inside Jeremy's underwear and grabbed his ass. 


      They began kissing deeper. Jack and Jeremy's tongues intertwined. Jeremy pulled Jack's shirt off, revealing a stunning display of chest hair. He kissed Jack's lips again. Then his chin. Then his neck. Then his chest. Working his way down down down. He was on his knees now. 


      Jeremy unbuckled Jack's pants. In one quick swoop, Jeremy pulled down Jack's pants and underwear. 


      "Oh Jack. Looking a little soft," Jeremy said. The he grabbed onto Jack's penis. He began stoking it gently. Jack's member started to harden. What was once a limp noodle quickly became a rock hard man sausage in Jeremy's hand. Jeremy moved his head in and began licking Jack's dick. 


      Jack stopped him. "Hold on now, little J." Watching you give me a blowjob isn't what they asked for." Jack got down on the ground and brought Jeremy down with them. He slid Jeremy's underwear down - now they were laying at his feet. 


      Jack and Jeremy positioned themselves. Their faces were at each other's crotches. "Jack.." Jeremy said tenderly. "I've been waiting for this moment since I submitted my first Achievement Hunter Community video."


      "I don't care what they say about you, Jeremy. You're definitely have the biggest J I've ever seen." 


      Jeremy and Jack went at it, mouths wrapped around each other's cocks. They licked and sucked and stoked and kissed and gripped. And loved. More deeply then they had ever loved each other before. More deeply than they had even loved their wives. 


      Jack pulled his mouth off Jeremy's throbbing cock. "Jeremy. I'm going to cum."


      "Me too Jack. Almost there."


      They put their lips back around each other's dicks. Suck....lick....


      ...and cum. Jack and Jeremy climaxed simultaneously. Their semen blasted into each other's mouths. More than they had ever came before. Jizz overflowed their mouths and started dribbling onto the set. 


      Caiti looked away. Matt laughed harder than he had ever laughed in his life. 


      Jack and Jeremy composed themselves and stood up, standing naked next to each other. "Thank you so much for donating, everybody," Jack said. "Your charity has given so much. And also given me the best moment of my life. Holy shit, that was amazing."


      "You're amazing," Jeremy said. 


      Suddenly, Jeremy noticed something out of the corner of his eye. "Is..is there someone back behind that curtain?"


      Jeremy walked over to the curtain. There was Trevor, who was still masturbating to the sight of Jack and Jeremy's display of affection. 


      "Trevor, what the FUCK?!" 


      "I mean, you know. It was hot. I couldn't help myself."


      "No! That is wrong. You stay the fuck there. I'll be right back." Naked Jack came up and detained  Trevor. 


      Jeremy walked, fully naked, across the parking lot and over to the Achievement Hunter Office. He came back to Extra Life with the office katana. He went to the middle of the stage, holding the katana over his naked body. 


      "Motherfucker. If somebody donates $5,000 right now, I will kill that sick fuck Trevor right now."


      The money came in immediately. Trevor was brought out. Jeremy stabbed him straight through the heart. And all of Rooster Teeth cheered, expect for Trevor. He was too busy choking on his blood and dying. 


      "So...Jack. How do we up the ante next year?" 


      "Good question, Jeremy....anal?"


      "Anal."


      Fin. 

    • eggyhorror asked larrym a question

      hey larry, back again, with all the streaming going on recently, would you ever consider doing it?

      Answered: May 2, 2016

      It's something I might consider. I'm really really itching to get back to content creation.


      Last year, ended up putting my personal YouTube channel aside when we were crunching on Lazer Team, which was immediately followed by Crunch Time (which in certain aspects was an even crunchier two month than Lazer Team), which was immediately followed by me starting full time at Rooster Teeth.

      There's some steps you have to take to get your channel approved to fall under RT's personal channel network, all of the details which I won't get into now. One of those things involves getting YouTube certified, which I literally just did a few minutes before responding to this. Looking to start focusing on my personal channel again, and maybe once that's going again I'll start looking into the whole streaming thing.

      whats your favorite thing about your job? (also do you like answering questions?)

      Answered: Feb 16, 2016

      I think the main thing is the instant gratification - being able to edit something, put it out, and see the feedback almost instantly. I like to read the comments for any video I edit. Mostly I'm making sure nobody's saying anything negative about the edit - and if they don't complain, I did my job.


      Usually, I don't get credit for my work - And totally understandably. The guys in the video are the reason you enjoy the video. I'm just one of the guys making sure the videos get enjoyed. Seeing all those comments (usually positive) is really cool, knowing I edited something that so many people watched and enjoyed.


      Although it's also very nice to see comments from people getting a kick out of my stupid descriptions (When I get to write them). That's pretty cool too.


      And yes. I do like answering questions.

      what are your fave games larry?

      Answered: Feb 13, 2016

      Tough one to answer. I'll try to keep it as brief as possible.


      Huge huge fan of the Mario series. Mario 64 was the first game I owned and I absolutely fell in love with it. Got really into Super Mario Bros 3 when it came out on Gameboy Advance, and for a long while I considered that my favorite game. Mario Galaxy is also totally blew me away, and is probably my choice for favorite Mario game. Probably.


      Banjo-Kazooie is another one I loved as a kid. Revisited it in high school, which really solidified it as my favorite game of all time (yes, better than Banjo-Tooie).


      Portal is absolutely brilliant, and probably the game I've replayed the most times in my life. Yes, this is absolutely the one I've replayed the most because it's only 2-3 hours. Don't really have a preference between Portals 1 and 2. Both are brilliant games.


      Those are probably the tops, and man that's a boring, super mainstream list. Here's some other ones as well.


      Bayonetta/Bayonetta 2 - Xbox 360/PS3 was a generation of so many games pushing for ultra-realism, and it was so nice to have a game that was just 100% crazy. Love the combat. Love the art direction. Love how over-the-top everything in that game is.


      GTA: San Andreas - This was my first GTA game. Yes, I had watched my buddies play a but of Vice City, and maybe I got to play for a few minutes, but this was the first GTA I owned. With it being the first open-world game I played, I was nearly overwhelmed with how much there was to do. Lots of memories of going local co-op with buddies doing plane surfing - where one of us would fly a plane while the other person stood on top trying not to fall off. Also, KDST is by far the best Classic Rock station they've ever put in GTA.


      The Secret of Monkey Island - Admittingly, didn't play this one until the remastered version came out on Xbox 360. Not particularly in love with those kinds of adventure games. In fact, a lot of the design of that game is really frustrating. But Monkey Island is easily the funniest game I've ever played, and all the charm made me want to keep going forward.


      The first half hour of Bioshock Infinite - I like Bioshock Infinite a whole lot - one of the few games I played again instantly after I beat it the first time (although to be fair, I was unemployed at the time). Lots to love about this game, but the introduction is absolute perfection. Rocketing up to Columbia, seeing all of that for the first time. Getting to walk around and see that world before everything gets violent. Few games have hooked me into their world as instantly as that. And that barbershop version of God Only Knows - so good!


      Resident Evil 4 - Not a big fan of spooky-scaries, so Resident Evil works best for me when it's more action than horror. Story's campy as hell and I love it. Shooting enemies feels SO good. I love the variety of guns. And replaying that game in order to get things like the infinite rocket launcher or the handcannon, which take a somewhat-tense game and change the feel of the game completely, just way too much fun.


      I'm sure there's lots of other stuff I could think of, but that's probably enough for now. This post is already way too long.
