Hello to anyone reading this!
The first episode of RWBY Volume 4 was just released, and it made me want to write my first journal post. So here it goes. Not the best writer so bear with me.
I started working on RWBY back on Volume 1 as a Production Assistant. I felt WAY under qualified for the job since I didn't have much experience and everyone around me was way more talented than me (something that is still very true today). I worried that I might not have much to add to the team or the project. What I quickly learned however is that people working at RT Animation are not only friendly and hardworking, but they are PASSIONATE AS HELL. Everyone was patient, supportive, and made me feel like I was part of the family in no time.
Skip forward a few years and I find myself lucky enough to still be working with this amazing group of people. A group of people that has grown so much, yet it feels like every new addition has been here since the beginning. A group of people that continues to top itself with every single project that we work on together. And above all else, a group of people that is as passionate now as they were the first day I met them.
So I guess the point of this journal is just to say thank you to everyone that I work with. Thank you to Gray and Koen for believing in me and giving me the opportunity of a lifetime. And thank you to everyone else on the team. I’m not joking when I say my favorite thing in the world is working with talented artists and getting to see them make cool things every single day. You guys have lifted me up and made me laugh during hard times. RT Animation truly is my home, and I can’t believe that I’m lucky enough to be here.
Now with that out of the way, I also want to say thank you for watching! I hope everyone enjoys volume 4 of RWBY. The team has put all their love and passion into it. I look forward to reading all the comments and watching lots of reaction videos!
