Rooster Teeth Animation Presents: How to Make Episodic Animation for the Interweb

Join members of the Rooster Teeth 3D animation team to talk about how they make episodic content like RWBY and Red vs. Blue. The internet has given content creators the ability to share their work quickly, but how does a 3D animated show keep up with weekly releases while maintaining quality? We will be talking in detail about Rooster Teeth Animation’s 3D pipeline and philosophies and how the fans help in the process.

Date: April 22, 2017
Time: 10:00 am – Noon
