Burnie Burns voices Church, Lopez, Epsilon, and many more on Red vs Blue.
Shortly after our interview with Gus we were given a few minutes to chat with Burnie Burns, CEO and Co-Founder of Rooster Teeth. You might also know Burnie as Church, Vic, Epsilon, and many, many more characters on Red vs Blue. Burnie is also the writer of RvB.
I have said this numerous times over the last week, but Burnie is the nicest person I have met in my entire life. I’m blown away by how friendly and forthcoming he is with any and all fans; media included.
The first day of RTX arrived and with it a sense of a panic. Where do we start? Who do we talk to? Will anyone want to talk to ragtag group of non-costumed media representatives fresh out of Media Representation School*? (*Only a real place in my mind.) It’s fairly early in the day at this point and our scheduled interviews are much later in the day. Suddenly we spy from two feet in front of us the booth for Handelabra Studios and their iOS/Android app GAME.minder. Apparently I’ve been talking to Jeremy Handel about interviewing him for the last 15 seconds, but due to shock I have already forgotten this fact. This is the post-shock interview:
Jeremy was extremely friendly and great to chat with. I wholeheartedly recommend you check out the app and download it when you have time. Currently it is in use on my phone and I assure you that I’m not being paid in any way to promote or use the app. (Seriously, who pays us for anything around here?)
Well RTX is over now, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have plenty of coverage for you to feast upon your eyeholes. Coming to you over the next few days will be an assortment of interviews and written reports on the sights, sounds, and possibly smells of Rooster Teeth’s glorious convention. For the moment you can look upon the visage of us as we take a very brief look at the Expo floor.
Well we’re long overdue in discussing this, but it’s now time for us to talk about the upcoming Rooster Teeth Expo happening in Austin, TX. RTX is a two-day event taking place July 7th and 8th at the Austin Convention Center; hosted by the fine fellows over at Rooster Teeth. You might know the name Rooster Teeth because they are the gentle Internet deities behind the popular web-series Red vs. Blue as well a varying multitude of awesome Internet stuff.
Why the extreme excitement for RTX all of a sudden? Well, because Constantly Calibrating will be at RTX in two weeks providing all sorts of interviews and video coverage of the event. We’re still working out the details of what exactly we’ll be able to bring you, but rest assured that we’ll bring you the same class and quality you have come to expect of us over the last few months. So…keeping your expectations low might be wise. Just kidding…maybe.
RTX is the brainchild of the great minds at Rooster Teeth, the team behind the longest running web series of all time, Red vs. Blue. Rooster Teeth created RTX to bring game companies, gamers and online video lovers together for one great weekend in Austin, TX. RTX is all about playing new games and creating new online content. This year RTX will be open to the public for the first time and will give attendees the opportunity to play games, interact with one another and sit in on panels about creating online content led by industry experts including the Rooster Teeth team.
