Leave it to Rooster Teeth to shatter records like they are nothing. With shows such as Red vs. Blue and RWBY, a movie only seems like the next logical choice of action. It has always been the Rooster Teeth’s team dream to make a movie. Lazer Team started as a $650,000 request on Indiegogo, rapidly transformed into $2,480,421 by the end of the campaign. In case you’re wondering, that’s a 382% increase holmes.
This is the biggest project Rooster Teeth has ever took on and well, they broke the “Most Funded Film” title from Indiegogo. Hell, within the first three days they made over a million dollars – that’s madness.
"Our audience has once again amazed us with their overwhelming, record-breaking support. We are proud to be the #1 most funded film on Indiegogo… and with a totally new property. In a world filled with sequels and reboots, Lazer Team is a brand new IP being made possible by the people who want to see it. That is what crowdfunding is all about," said Rooster Teeth Co-Founder and Creative Director Burnie Burns.
So there you have, Lazer Team is going be a goliath. Personally, I have endless faith in the Rooster Teeth team and am more than excited to see this film. In the 1970s, did we make contact with extraterrestrial life? Who will become the champion of earth? Lazer Team.
