IamA Rooster Teeth, maker of online videos for twelve years and counting. AMA!
Hi I am Burnie Burns. In 2003, I started a company called Rooster Teeth in a spare bedroom of my house to make online (not-porn) videos. Twelve years later, we have over 80 employees, a huge convention this weekend, the longest running web series in history and we are currently racing to be the #1 Film ever funded on IndieGoGo. AMA!
EDIT: We are about an hour and a half in so I am going to answer some questions from NEW for a bit. That way people asking now will get some answers. I always hate showing up to an AMA late and there's no way the subject will see a question 500 deep. Click the Rooster Teeth username to see answers.
EDIT2: Everyone in the company just went nuts b/c our IGG campaign broke $2MM. Amazing!
EDIT3 (3:00PM Central): They need me for a shot. Be right back.
EDIT4 (4:00PM): I'm back.
EDIT5 (6:15PM): Looping back through to catch some upvoted stuff and popular replies to replies. Have to head out soon. Got a convention to attend!
EDIT6 (7:15PM): OK headed out! Hope you help make Lazer Team #1 on IndieGoGo! To find out more, here's a link to our backer call with a description of the plot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EiMp7deGkrY
EDIT7 (10:25PM): Got back to see we are still front page so I am back in. Sorting by new again.
