Rooster Teeth Tells All!

Teaser for Austin web geniuses' doc Why We’re Here

Films. Documentaries. Massively successful shows. Cult animated series. Rooster Teeth, the Austin-based online entertainment juggernaut, has come a long way from founder Burnie Burns' bedroom in Buda. Now the company has produced its first documentary about its own story, Why We're Here: 15 Years of Rooster Teeth, with the first trailer out now.

The documentary will trace how a bunch of gaming fans managed to break far, far out of the pack of online content providers, pushing the envelope with streaming video before YouTube was even a thing, and developed a massive loyal fanbase along the way.

Why We're Here: 15 Years of Rooster Teeth debuts on Rooster Teeth First on April 20. More info at www.roosterteeth.com.
