One should never underestimate the power of full-blooded internet enthusiasts. Rooster Teeth’s feature film entitled “Lazer Team” took a resounding approval from all of its fans as it hit $2,365,958 million that came from an estimate of 35,000 supporters. Read on for the full details.
The project was initiated by the Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign, and it hit the headlines when they reached their $650,000 monetary goal within the day of the launching. People behind the project were astonished and proud to announce that their achievement did not end there because it now holds the record for the highest accumulated funds ever collected from crowd funding. It was able to bypass the support for the TV movie entitled “Gosnell.”
According to Gotcha Movies, Rooster Teeth has been campaigning to achieve the right amount of funding for their most ambitious movie project yet, “Lazer Team.” True enough, their audience amazed them with their overwhelming and groundbreaking dedicated support. Up-to-date, “Lazer Team” holds the #1 position in the ranking of the film that is mostly funded in the history of IndieGogo.
“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 crowd funding is all about,” explained by Burnie Burns, the co-founder and creative director of Rooster Teeth, as published in Variety.
The movie takes place decades after the later part of the 1970s when the project entitled “Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence” received a singular signal coming from space that indicated there are others out there and that the universe is a very dangerous place. As the notice posed an imminent threat to the human race, the U.S. government initiated the training of warriors with incredible skills to man a suit that’s been engineered by newly vowed alien allies.
Strategically, “Lazer Team” is a live action sci-fi comedy movie that revolves around the aftermath of the life-changing, historical event. The promise of bigger and better visual effects is predominantly expected by the viewers, seeing that the crowd funding has given the production the proper means. True enough, the team made the announcement during the Rooster Teeth Expo held in Austin Convention Center.
“We have always made the most of our resources and made some of the best quality content to the Internet over the past 11 years. We are going to do this one a bigger scale,” assured the team, during the Q&A portion of the convention.
”Lazer Team” is scheduled to begin filming in August 2014 in Austin and New Mexico, with plans of a spring release in 2015.
