Rooster Teeth Productions is a production group from Austin, Texas that specializes in the creation of live action shorts, animated pieces and machinima, or films created using real-time, interactive engines from computer and video games. The name Rooster Teeth is a euphemism for an insult used in one of the group’s trailers.
Joining us from Rooster Teeth is:
Joel Heyman started his “legitimate” acting career on the NBC soap opera “Passions” where Joel would be forced to sport a highly unfashionable orange neckerchief that would consequently spell Joel’s undoing. In an attempt to escape this highly stressful period, Joel would attempt to hide his shame on other shows like “Angel” (UPN), “Criminal Minds” (CBS), and “The Inside” (FOX). Acknowledging that this move wouldn’t help Joel live down, what would ultimately be dubbed the ‘neckerchief incident’, Joel would have to move behind the camera to direct over 70 national commercials featuring video games from the Call of Duty, Halo, and Madden NFL franchises. This would not be enough. Joel, in 2003, would be forced to play the part of “Caboose” on an obscure web series “Red vs Blue”; a sci-fi comedy based around various types of neck-wear found throughout the galaxy.
Joel look forward to meeting all his fans at the Melborne and Gold Coast Supanova expos in 2012. There are signing and photo sessions throughout each Saturday (10.30am to 5.30pm) and Sunday (11am to 5pm) excluding breaks and there’s a general admission Q&A during each weekend.Guest confirmed health and other commitments pending.
