Rooster Team Productions are making their first ever film, Lazer Team. Rooster Team is a production studio that is widely known for being the longest web series in history, award winning online videos (Red vs. Blue) and their hilarious Rooster Teeth Shorts (which can be found on Youtube).
The fan funded movie raised over 2 million dollars! They are number one for Most Funded Film in the history of IndieGoGo! People who help fund the film received prizes from merchandise, a signed copy of the DVD or a 20 second voicemail from a fans favorite Rooster Team member.
On IndieGoGo, Rooster Team describes Lazer Team:
“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:
1. We are not alone
2. 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.”
All the funding towards the movie will go to visual effects, cast & crew and places to film the movie. Rooster Team insured fans that the movie will be done and the funds will go directly to the film. “ We have always made the most of our resources and made some of the best quality content on the Internet over the past 11 years. We are going to do this on a bigger scale.” (Quoted from IndieGoGo).
Recently, the team announced that they hired a new campaign manager, Chelsea Atkinson. Atikson will keep up to date on FAQs and announcements of prizes that people received from donating. Rooster Team has also merged with BackerKit which will provide customer service and answer any questions about shipping for merchandise.
