JC: It used to be a mix of Flash and After Effects for season 1 of X-Ray and Vav. Then we discovered the glory of Toon Boom and never looked back. Even RTAA is made in Toon Boom now.
On which characters went through the most changes while the show was being worked on.
JC: The reason Nurf wasn’t around early on in season 1 was because we had no idea what his character would be. We finally had a breakthrough with the “bully with a conscience” angle and he’s been stealing scenes ever since.
On the possibility of future musical numbers after season two episode one
JC: We try to limit ourselves to one musical number per season (they’re really difficult to make x_x)
In a crazy turn of events. A Reddit AMA user by the name of “RangerofHarmony” had a rather long inquiry concerning the anti-semitic overtones in Camp Camp Season Two which Noelle actually brought up in our review of the first episode. The people involved with the production of Camp Camp went ahead and asked their standards & practices team to supply them with a response, and here’s what it is:
All: We appreciate your point of view and definitely try to take these thoughts into consideration whenever we approach any piece of content. We’d rather acknowledge the darker parts of the world than ignore them and let them fester. We don’t think that any jokes are presented in a way that condones any type of hate. We’re not trying to normalize the outrageous but sometimes we’ll use the outrageous to demonstrate how ridiculous a character’s thinking or motivations are. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to address concerns such as these.
What are your thoughts on this conversation starter? Do you think Rooster Teeth went a bit too far in their premiere episode of Camp Camp Season Two? Or do you think the producers merely exercised their rights to free speech. Sound off in the comments, we’d like to hear ’em!
