Hi! I'm Doreen. I'm the VP, Head of Production for Live Action. It has been nearly five years since I started working full time at Rooster Teeth, so big fat shame on me for not introducing myself about 56 months ago!
In case my you can't tell by my delayed introduction, I’m very comfortable being behind the scenes. In this case, it's pretty silly because we have the most amazing and welcoming community in the world. I know first hand. I’ve been to six RTXs. I’ve had the pleasure of sitting beside many of you during panels and screenings. It has been an absolute blast and I thank you for making RTX, and my job, such an amazing and fun experience.
RTX actually has a lot to do with why I ended up accepting a job at Rooster Teeth. The first RTX I attended was in 2013. I don’t want to go off the rails with too long of a story….but it’s safe to say that it was my first exposure to the close relationship between the Community and Rooster Teeth. It was something so positive, respectful and reciprocal, and so completely unexpected, that it made a huge impression on me.
Anyway, fast forward five years and NINE different desk locations* (no joke) and I’m still here. My 1-year contract ended years ago but my access badge still works so I keep showing up each week.
I’ve worked on a little bit of everything: Gauntlet Seasons 1 & 2, Immersion, shorts, Barenaked Ladies videos, Lazer Team, Lazer Team 2, RT Docs, Day 5, Crunch Time, #RTES (yes…I know), and other random odds & ends that come along with being in Live Action.
It's a lot of work to keep up with Rooster Teeth's desire (and mine, too) to raise the bar with each production, but it has been worth every moment. There's so much more to come and I can't wait to share what we have in the works with all of you.
As our adventures here continue, I promise to be better about keeping in touch. I hope you do the same!
p.s. The puppy in my profile pic is Piper. She's our family's first dog, she just turned one this summer and she is the best! Just thinking about her cuteness makes me want to explode.
*Desk Locations...you know you want to know
1. Facing green cyc at 636 office (So. Much. Green.)
2. Stage 5 – Cubical (Walls. No Green!)
3. Bungalow B – Windows!!
4. Stage 2 – An actual OFFICE!!!
5. Bungalow A – Little room by back door with horribly loud AC return. In other news, Bose makes great noise canceling ear buds if you’re in the market.
6. Bungalow A – Bull Pen.
7. Bungalow A – Alan’s office. (Biz dev guys have the absolute best coffee & booze.)
8. Stage 3 – Weirdest office to date. Had bars on windows…so safest (?)
9. Stage 2 – an actual office AGAIN…for now
