After years of producing fantastic web content such as Red vs Blue, RWBY, Achievement Hunter... and The Strangerhood (Season 2 please), Rooster Teeth are finally ready to jump into the world of movies. As a long time fan of Rooster Teeth, I find this both brilliant and completely un-surprising, the company seems to grow every single day, and the content they create has inspired me more in my life than probably anything else (I mean… you guys saw Small Spartans right? RIGHT?).
The movie in question that Rooster Teeth are creating – Lazer Team, here is the synopsis of the Indiegogo campaign:
In the late 1970′s, the Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence project received a one time signal from outer space. It looked exactly as theorists thought a communication from an alien civilization would — unfortunately it has never been decoded. Or so we were told. Unbeknownst to the general public the signal was translated and told us two things:
- We are not alone.
- The galaxy is a dangerous place.
Our story is live action sci-fi comedy that takes place decades later in the aftermath of this event. We will be holding a conference call for all our BTS-level and higher supporters on Tuesday June 17, 2014 during which will we cover the plot in greater detail.
The campaign itself has already more than doubled its original goal with over $1,495,840 raised… that’s over a million!
If you want to donate to the project head over to roosterteeth.com/lazerteam and help make a project that was already going to be awesome, be super awesome… no wait… super duper awesome.
Also, to all the fellow Brits out there; the country that raises the highest amount (behind the US) gets a Lazer Team premiere… so you know… get funding!
