News for Sakura-Con 2007:

Rooster Teeth Productions to make Sakura-Con appearance

Seattle, WA- 2-12-2007 Sakura-Con is excited to present Rooster Teeth Productions for their first Sakura-Con appearance. Not familiar with Rooster Teeth? From the source, here is a brief explanation: "Rooster Teeth Productions was founded in 2003 and over the past four years has helped to bring machinima comedy to millions of people who are bored at school and/or work. Rooster Teeth has created several series, among them "Red vs Blue" "The Strangerhood" and "P.A.N.I.C.S." The group started out working in the spare bedroom of Burnie's house and has since graduated to a one bedroom apartment. It is just like the time you moved out from your parent's house minus the crying. If you would like to cry some more (from laughter) please stop by and say hello. PS: Gus is better than Burnie" –Sounds like a worthwhile trip. Check out Rooster Teeth productions at and better yet, come meet the guys behind the lunacy at Sakura-Con!
