Rooster Teeth Hits One Million Dollar Mark in Less than 72 Hours

Move over Marsh-mallows, because a new king of crowd-funding has been established. And they are no other than the Reds and Blues.

In less than 56 hours Rooster Teeth, the creators behind Red vs Blue, RWBY, Achievement Hunter, and Immersion, have hit the one million dollar mark on their IndieGoGo campaign. The capaign is set for the Teams first major motion picture with two things in mind:

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.

This is a significant milestone as previously held queen of sleuthing, Veronica Mars was beaten out in their goal by over 26 days.

The initial goal was set at 650,000 but had already been toppled by their ten hour mark. You can still make donations, but most of the perks for AH, RWBY and RvB have been claimed. The big ones, however, are still up for grabs including the 10,000 dollar Executive Producer spot, the 7,500 dollar walk-on role, the 6,500 Co-Producer spot and 3,000 dollar Associate Producer level spots with IMDB accounts for all production spots.

So for those of you willing to shell out the cash, go support the longest running web series, precursor to YouTube and go for it.

LifeAsAFilmStudent: Part 1

The 5 am wake up calls.
The 7 am setup time.
The 8 am cast rehearsals and practices.
The 10 am shooting schedule.

The 12pm lunch hour.
The 1 pm “back to work” spiel.

Just to make the most interesting thing come alive through a small lens. It will capture the wonder and magic that is rarely seen by those not in the industry.

Yet, despite all of this, the reason WHY I do what I do is no where in sight. It is in the faces of the audience. The emotions that are captured not only tell one story, but many.

The audience is my motivation, my reason, and why I live LifeAsAFilmStudent.
