Austin Studios Sends Out the Welcome Wagon

By Monica Riese, March 21, 2014, 9:15am, Picture in Picture

Austin's very own Rooster Teeth Productions are setting up a new roost, and they're going to have excellent neighbors: They'll be joining the Austin Film Society at Austin Studios starting next month.

Rooster Teeth launched just over a decade ago, and became well-known for their Red vs. Blue webseries. Between the Rooster Teeth Expo and new series RWBY, the growing team keeps plenty busy; their projects have attracted some 7 million subscribers on YouTube.

Meanwhile, Austin Studios has been building up a 20-acre production empire on East 51st Street, with tenants ranging from Locations Catering and a couple casting agencies to Fender, Peavy, and more. Lately, it's been the site of filming for neighbor Troublemaker Studios' From Dusk Till Dawn reboot. Just last month, we heard wind they were looking for anchor tenants for the growing Mueller-area facilities, and now we've got this news.

Rooster Teeth's tenancy begins in April; the company is on a two-year lease with one-year renewal option for Stage 5 and Bungalow A. For more about Austin Studios campus, visit the Austin Film Society website.
