Three of the companies founders, Burnie Burns, Matt Hullum, and Joel Heyman met while attending the University of Texas at Austin in 1997. Burns later met Geoff Ramsay, Jason Saldana, and Gustavo Sorola. These six people founded Rooster Teeth Productions. The company is based in Austin, Texas, and was officially founded in 2003.
The companies first project was Red vs. Blue. Red vs. Blue (RvB) is a machinima series set in the Halo universe on the map Blood Gulch (which became Valhalla and Ragnarok in later games). Rooster Teeth also have worked on The Strangerhood, a machinima series set in the Sims 2. They have also worked in collaborations with Maybeck Productions to create a series called PANICS which took place in the game F.E.A.R.
Over the years, Rooster Teeth has gotten much larger, and in doing so have branched out into making Live-Action shorts as well as continuing with their machinima. One of their ventures was aptly named Rooster Teeth Shorts, and the first season consisted of twenty episodes and was later released on DVD. RT Shorts features all members of the Rooster Teeth staff.
This was followed up with the next series, Immersion, starring Geoff Ramsay and Gus Sorola. The series consists of Geoff and Gus being subjected to gameplay mechanics in games (i.e. eating food for health, third person driving).
Then came Past Cast, which is a series of vlogs set in the past.
Finally, RT released The Gauntlet, which is a reality game competition. The show has taken notable beats from other game shows such as Wipeout and American Idol.
