February 1st, 2015 Monty Oum creator of RWBY, motion capture lead for Rooster Teeth’s RvB series, and Employee of Rooster Teeth passed away. The details of why he passed away are out there, they are not secret and they are sad to reflect on. Rooster Teeth fans know who he is, and the great work he has done.

In times like this I find it hard to reflect on the accomplishments someone has achieved in their life. But reflecting on their achievements strengthens how much someone meant to you, and strengthens the spirit of them in you that you carry. Even if you can’t but help break into tears while trying to fight back to keep a straight face.

 

Monty Oum, achieved more in 33 years than most us might ever achieve. His Gamerscore in life is higher than Ray’s (AH employee) Gamerscore on Xbox. Monty Oum, while many of us don’t know him personally, he was family to all of Rooster Teeth and its fans. He was the man that brought that very first motion work in RvB, and all the amazing fight scenes to come after. It blew our minds at the time, that machinima as an art form can go that far. He worked tirelessly, as many know, Monty always found ways to shave milliseconds off just to utilize his time getting the job done right. Even down to simple and weirdest things. Like the optimal button pressing for a microwave.

 

Monty Oum was always a creator with a beautiful mind. I remember a Podcast way back around Podcast 160’s of Monty talking to Burnie, and asking about story building. Those questions and long talk where the first building blocks of RWBY. Many of us at the time had no idea. Almost a year and half later we got our first trailer of RWBY. Since then RWBY has spawn a large fan base and great storytelling.

 

Monty Oum, it’s great pain to say you have left behind a great loving legacy. But as selfish as this might sound, I wish you didn't have to leave just yet. Too myself and many others you are an inspiration.

 

It says a lot for someone has never personally met you, known you, or given you a drink, to break in tears while typing this out.

Rest peacefully Monty Oum.

Thought I bring back some old memories of Monty Oum's works. Here are some of his works and greatest moments with Monty Oum.

 

Haloid

 

Dead Fantasy All Parts

 

RvB Tex versus Reds and Blues

 

RWBY Red Trailer

 

Few Great Moments with Monty Oum

 

 

It says a lot when you try to fit everything one man has done on a single reply, you run out of room. Trust me it is also just as hard to narrow down all the great things he has done, when there is so many.

 

Note: Had to put all these in link form, forums can support more than two YouTube vids at a time.

I was shocked when I heard about this, I used to follow him on gametrailers when he was posting his Haloid and Dead Fantasy material.  He was such a remarkable talent.  R.I.P Monty, you will be missed.

Not since the deaths of Justin "Jewwario" Carmical and Robin Williams have I felt that we lost some truly great entertainers and even better men.

Rest in Peace Monty Oum you were one of the greatest animators of this time. The sad thing is he died from a routine procedure that caused him to have a severe allergic reaction.

Rooster Teeth put together their own Tribute video together for Month Oum. Probably the best way to sum up who Monty Oum is, is to let Monty Oum explain it himself.
