about rw

The Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding bouquet:

Lily of the Valley: Trustworthiness, return of happiness, purity of heart, sweetness; Sweet William: Gallantry, but is also a nod to Prince William; Hyacinth: Loveliness, constancy of love; Myrtle: Love and marriage, but also calls back to a royal tradition since Victorian times where brides use myrtle in their bouquets - this specific myrtle came from Queen Victoria’s 170 year-old garden; Ivy: Fidelity and marriage.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT BTW, while we’re talking about RT Fuckery- let’s not forget that a bunch of the things check out???

Shane said some things about what got animated in V3 and who got to animate it, and I watched SEVERAL Animation panels during R*T*X 2016- many things that animators said that they got to work on aligned with what Shane said in his letter (not that I’m vilifying them at all, the animators do their jobs, that’s all)

(I gotta remind you all that I didn’t purposely watch these panels to validate Shane’s letter, btw. i was trying to keep busy with something else, but the information just came up during the Ladies of RT Animation panel and I knew what it was related to.)

Also, like that post about RT’s shitty pay towards animation said, the “higher ups” bragged about trips to:

-Japan (RW*BY being dubbed and selling well in Japan)
-London (the MCM London convention, which they were invited to)
-and New Zealand (”A Simple Walk Into Mordor”? You know, that documentary that the present directors of RW*BY+C*mp C*mp starred in?)

and we KNOW who they fucking are because those same “higher up” people literally go on twitter and talk about those trips as well!!! The directors of RW*BY/C*mp C*mp literally posted about it!

It’s not like people are lying about how shady RT is because there’s evidence that substantiates these things ON THE INTERNET!!! FROM THE ACTUAL OTHER EMPLOYEES!!! And it’s not even like they have to directly address “drama” because if you just pay like 5 seconds of attention to all the other people and inner workings going on, it speaks for itself!!!

It’s also incredibly grating because it’s because of Monty being brought on to work for RT, that the animation department of RT has become what it is today? And Monty worked hard. Super FUCKING hard. Yeah, he made it look easy, but that’s because he had well over a decade of animation experience under his belt, which got poured into every RT production he worked on.

And to hear that they don’t even pay their animators that well, only for a weekly web series like RW*BY to have writing errors, last-minute changes and shit for the animators to fix is INEXCUSABLE GARBAGE. As an animator, it makes me fucking livid. Especially knowing how much money gets thrown around at RT for other things.

Animation is hard work. Regardless of if you’re self taught, or professionally trained, animation is difficult. 3D animation, which is probably what the employee was referring to, is probably the most difficult medium to get the hang of, and has a high learning curve. And that is the medium that RT’s 2 biggest flagship productions is made from. (Yes, that is subtracting the machinimation for RvB)

With 3D animation, you can’t just make some clever photoshops or easy fixes to the final footage when you screw up. In 2D animation, you may need to redraw, recolor, and rearrange the frames you’ve done. But with 3D, you need to have your shit together BEFORE you send things to animation.

It’s one thing when, years ago, Monty would make last minute changes to things he wanted in RW*BY right before a deadline- but he was actually INVOLVED in the animation, modeling, and rigging processes.

It’s something else when you come from being a writer, a producer, and/or a film compositor and you’re in charge of an animated production, and you have NO PART of the actual 3D animation process, and you don’t have the God-like efficiency in modeling, animating, and rigging to push last-minute changes into the production before a deadline.

Yeah, those same ppl may contribute a little mocap acting here and there, but mocap still needs to be cleaned up and arranged in the correct places to be used properly versus the hand-keyed animation that still needs to be done for the show right before the next episode needs to come out.

The average salary for 3D animation in the United States is almost $60K a year, which is pretty decent for work in Austin, Texas (the avg. cost of living where RT is based is $55K yearly) So to hear the possibility that animators at RT actually DO NOT make the average animation salary in the United States is appalling to me.

Hyukkie's Aegyo
Han Sang Hyuk
Hyukkie's Aegyo

Hyuk’s aegyo @ Sukira

Ken: I know a secret about Hyukkie

RW: Yes?

Ken: To other members, they’ve never saw it but I’ve seen it once. He just did it like this, just that once.

Hyuk: Me?

Ken: Yes, to me.

RW: Why? Why did he do that?

Ken: Just playing around because I kept on doing aegyo at that time.

RW: Then, why don’t you show it once here. The one that you did to Ken.

Hyuk: At that time, it was like this. Ken hyung usually have a lot of aegyo.

RW: He does.

Hyuk: It was too much that my fingers were curling sometimes. So, I think I need to make it worse to make him feel what I feel so that he won’t do aegyo again. So I did it.

RW: Should we see it?

Ken: He did it too much.

RW/Hongbin: Please stand up.

N: Hyuk is doing proper aegyo, it’s the 1st for me.

RW: He’s too tall…

N: One, two, three

Hyuk: Ihing~~~ Ken hyung please buy me that~

All: AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Ken: That’s cute!!

RW: That’s cute, cute!

N: So cute~~ (umma mode)

Ken: When I saw that, I wanna be cuter than him.

N: Aww he’s cute~~

RW: He did everything that’s good.

N: If you did that to me, I’ll buy you anything (non-stop umma mode)

13 Reasons Guys- FicBite 1

Hey guys! This is a little list I’ll bring doing frequently from now, and is about how the 13 RW guys reacting to a particular situation. It’s inspired by the amazing @13reasonswhyilovezachdempsey . You might have seen this on my blog, but since I do most of my fic writing here, I only found it appropriate to put in on here :)

At the big game

Zach: looks so relaxed he’s practically horizontal, but you can see that he’s a teeny tiny but nervous under that whole “I rule this shit” demeanor. He gives you a smirk before he goes for a three pointer, scoring of course, because he’s Zach Dempsey and Zach always scores. Plus, he’s 6'3! He can basically just walk up to net lol

Justin: is completely utterly focused on the game. his eyes are always on the ball, and the way he moves is almost predatory as he goes for a layup. you can see that one muscle where he keeps all his tension on his neck go taut, and he’ll be rubbing it for hours later. he doesn’t look at you much, but somehow he always knows where you’re sitting and manages to make all the action happen around there

Jeff: comes in with that amazing smile of his and makes half the room fall for him, but he only has eyes for you and after the game, runs over and puts his arm around your shoulder like ‘let’s get outta this place’

Montgomery: is new to the team but the quintessential show off, and every time he gets near the ball he makes it a point to grin at every girl in the audience. he’s not as good as Justin or Zach, but makes up for it by acting like he’s Kobe

Marcus: Is marcus even at the game? oh yes, he’s at the back with Courtney trying to make himself look good. no-one cares, Marcus

Tyler: he’s taking pictures of everyone, and when you tell him to shut up and actually come sit with you he sighs but does it, reluctantly putting the camera down

Tony: He just joined the team but is chill as hell and scores without even trying. seriously, the guy is a basketball God. he raises an eyebrow at you as he saunters down the court when everyone else is sprinting, and you grin, because tony Padilla cannot be shaken

Alex: groans for ages because he doesn’t want to come to the ‘stupid pseudo-masculine ball chasing activity’ that basketball is but comes when you drag him there. it’s great though, because he makes sarcastic jokes about all of them and you can’t stop laughing

Clay: he’s really quiet when he gets there but you guys really warm up to each other over the game and leave before the end to go hang at Monet’s or wherever. oh, and he lets you ride his bike.

Ryan: you really think he’d come?

mmmmmmm noah fence but also im like still bitter about the fact that out of EVERYONE on team machine finch was the one who got the like. u know idk how to describe it but like ~fairytale happy ending~ ? u know ???? he lived through the cyber apocalypse, got to see grace again and presumably she took him back (which..girl rly lmao) like,,,,,,,,,,,, did he really deserve that out of everyone?? did he really??? think about it. :/ :/ :/

Imagine rwby being a show that’s main message was hope. Imagine it starting as it did with brightness and humour and good feelings with a feeling of dread slowly growing. What if despite all these horrible things happening and so many characters falling into dread and drawing Grimm to them there was one that never did.

Grimm are driven by negative emotions but out of all those who we’ve met the one who seems the most hopeful and naive is Ruby. What of that was what we were supposed to take away.

However cheesy it would have been what if that’s what silver eyes meant. Leaders who inspired those below them that Grimm quaked at the sight of because of the unshaking resolve and hope and optimism silver eyed warriors had.

What if season four was about rwby learning this and it being reinforced by her helping jnr grieve and forcing them to never give up and strive to reach her level by simply existing. Jaune becoming more competent through and arc of the four growing close and learning about each other.

What if season four was ruby restoring hope and wby finding theirs again after losing it and that being more evident. An arc of yang finding reason to fight again instead of it all being skipped. Instead of blake having a family to return to her not knowing where to go and running to team sssn because she doesn’t know what else to do.

anonymous asked:

If robb had been warned about rw, what should he have done ? Could he conquer the twins ?

He would have needed to handle the Boltons in his own army first. But yeah, I’d imagine that Robb would have been able to handle those betrayals if he was informed beforehand. The Boltons and the Freys do have levies, but they can’t fight the North/Riverlands alliance by themselves.

Thanks for the question, Anon.
