Mounty Oum 1981-2015 February 7th, 2015

I found Red Vs Blue years ago, back probably at least 10 years ago, when I was in college. I remember it was a random episode in season 3 where the Battle Creek Zealots are battling over the flag. I didn’t know it at the time, but that video got me hooked on Rooster Teeth productions. I’ve watched almost all of their videos, love the Achievement Hunter content, talked to some of them on Twitter and their site. In a lot of ways, it’s inspired me over the years, especially when I first started making money online.

Season eight of Red Vs Blue was a huge one, they did things that you couldn’t do in a video game. There’s a scene where a car comes crashing through a wall and it’s entirely computer generated, mixed with the engine of Halo 3. It was amazing. There’s been a lot of cool things, but that one scene, the first time you see that after watching eight years of strictly Machinima, it stands out.

Last Sunday the lead animator and the person responsible for that scene, Monty Oum, passed away. Besides working on Red Vs Blue, Monty was the creator of RWBY, Haloid and Dead Fantasy. Monty was 33 years old when he died.

For someone who has watched and been inspired by these people for the last ten years, it’s absolutely heart breaking, but as Monty would say “Keep moving forward”, so that’s what I’m going to do. I am going to keep being inspired by the work that he did and the work he has laid out for the years to come.
