"I mean who doesn't like being told they're awesome?"Monty Oum on the only proper reaction to his work.
Monty Oum (1981-2015) was an animator best known for creating the awesome anime-style web animation series RWBY and as the lead animator for Rooster Teeth's machinima series Red vs. Blue during seasons 8-10. He achieved notoriety for creating the video game crossover fan films Haloid and Dead Fantasy, which brought him to the attention of Rooster Teeth who would employ him. He was self-taught  who learned his techniques through observation. His works rely heavily on Rule of Cool. He passed away on February 1, 2015 at the age of 33 due to a severe allergic reaction he suffered during a routine medical procedure.
- though he prefers the term "film maker" and "one-man production crew" would be even more appropriate
