      Hello! It's been a while since I've made a journal post and I don't have any new insights or announcements or anything BUT...


      I want to say thank you to everyone who supports what we do here. I can't believe the heights I have seen Rooster Teeth reach in even just the last few years that I've worked here and I've never been more excited for the future. Thank you for watching our videos, or leaving comments, or engaging with us on social media, or coming to a live event, or telling your friends about us, or buying merch, or laughing at us. However you engage with the content we make, we just can't thank you enough for engaging. We'll continue to strive to be the best we can every single day and in every single way - you are the motivation that pulls us through the sludge and helps us shine with pride!


      Anyway - thank you!

      If you were to be flung from ANYTHING and there was no risk of injury or death, what would you be flung from and why?

      Answered: Aug 3, 2016

      I would want to be flung from a giant cast iron skillet so I could feel like a pancake being flipped.

      I've been making an art series on the Ladies of Rooster Teeth and I was wondering if I could feature/draw you in it? You aren't on camera often so I wanted to make sure before I do anything! >.<

      How do I become an epic badass like you?

      Answered: Feb 3, 2016

      Haha. Just don't give a shit about what people think of you and when you look at yourself in the mirror make sure your body looks banging (or at least good enough) without taking any notice of your face.

      i have been struggling between the desire to write this post and not. I am not one who normally shares much with others, even those I consider closest to me. Trust can be difficult sometimes.


      When I started working at Rooster Teeth, the company was still fairly small - well very small compared to the amount of employees we have today. The animation department was undertaking it's first full scale 3D animated project, RWBY, and I was hired as the production coordinator. This meant that I was the producer's right hand on a small team and had to help coordinate varying parts of that team to ensure the product was successful.


      My brain has always been incredibly rational and logical. My favorite games to play are, and always will be, Tetris and Minesweeper. I am abnormal in the creative world. Monty, however, was the epitome of "The Creative". He always found novel workarounds for processes that I didn't even realize were flawed. If there was ever an opposite brain type to mine, it was Monty's. I was excited to interact with and befriend someone so different from me. Trying to understand his brain quickly turned into an exercise in honesty and self-reflection.


      Several mornings i found myself alone in the studio with Monty before everyone else arrived for the day. It was then that I found a mentor. Between the plethora of dilemmas I was facing in my personal life and struggles at work from having no prior experience in animation, I leaned on him. He was an amazing listener and used his creative mind to present solutions or helpful questions to every one of my problems. Of course, Monty and I had our share of disagreements. People so innately opposite can only expect, at least a little, conflict and resistance. I still wish I could tell him I am sorry for not understanding him during those times.


      After his passing, I went through everything I could find on the internet that Monty had ever written. It took days to sort and read through but by doing this I came to understand him in a way I was never able to before. I saw him develop the principles that made him the inspiration he is today to his fans, including those who were also lucky enough to have him as a friend. I got to see more about how his mind worked and what made him steadfast in areas that I wanted to change in production. Reading what Monty wrote has lead me to become a more compassionate, honest, and open producer. I understand more of my opposite and, in doing so, better understand that there are always a myriad of solutions to any problem.


      Yesterday was really hard and I think a large part of that is me still feeling so guilty about some of our experiences together. I am incredibly grateful that, shortly before his passing, Monty and I were growing closer again. I just wish I could have done more to show him how much he means to me.

      Hey Maggie!
      I somehow got to your page and realized you were cast and crew but I've never heard of you before. I was just wondering what you do there! And also, is it as awesome as it seems?

      • Bman FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        3 years ago

        That is awesome! Glad you are working and making such a good production. Keep up the good work. Huge fan of all of you at RWBY!

      • Maggie FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        3 years ago

        It is definitely as awesome as it seems - partially because I am doing what I aspired to do, mostly because everyone is so great to work with. I am currently the production coordinator for RWBY (I did it for volume 01 too). So basically that just means I make spreadsheets and try to keep us on track to get things done.

    I knew Lindsay way before I knew about Rooster Teeth so I guess her.

    Sure thing. I am an assistant producer for 2D animation. This means that I generate schedules once we have dates for productions and figure out how big of a staff we need to accommodate the needs of the production. During the day-to-day of production, I task the varying departments to ensure that deadlines are met in a way that the next department to work on the show will have everything they need. This means having a comprehensive understanding of all of the art assets (from storyboards to characters to props to backgrounds to everything in between), rigging and layout processes, frames to be animated and how to tackle effects on that animation, voice recording and sound design/mix, and editorial demands. This understanding is what allows me to utilize the schedule I make before production begins and create flexible paths until the production meets success.


    Tl;dr - I sit at my desk trying to make sure the production is timely and efficient until I get pulled away to go to a meeting, recording, or to assist a member of the production's team.

    Between Pokeballs, Dragon balls, volleyballs, and pretty much every other iteration of ball that one could have, I would say Lindsay.

    My morning routine is to ignore my first alarm and then wake up to my second one. Then my dog (Inigo) and I have "Morning Cuddle Time" for about 5 - 10 minutes. I usually then poop - I'm pretty regular in that regard. Next, I let Inigo out where he pees and poops - he's pretty regular in that regard too. I watch the Daily Show and Nightly Show from the previous night as I get dressed and brush my teeth & hair. Then, finally, I kiss Inigo good-bye and head into the office.
