You'll Be MissedSo it's been almost a year since I've posted anything on this account. It's not because I don't like you guys on here but because of college mostly. Plus I just can't keep up with all the different social media sites, I'm old now (just turned 25 a few days ago).

But I'm not writing this journal to let you know what I've been up to. I'm writing this journal because of recent events that have devastated our little RT family. I am of course talking about the passing of Monty Oum. As I'm watching the live podcast and listening to Burnie, Matt, Gus and Grey recount their stories of Monty I felt compelled to write Something.

I never knew Monty, never met him, but I did love his work. The first time I saw his work was when I first saw Haloid, though it would take me years to find out Monty made it. The models looked rough but the choreographed fight scenes blew me away. His work has this special flow. Every action has a reaction, a purpose, momentum. It's something you would think would be easy to do but it is actually a very hard thing for animators to master and Monty had it mastered.

Now, as I mentioned earlier, I've never met Monty but that hasn't stopped him from influencing my life. Monty is actually one of the reasons why I decided to choose animation as my career path. For years after high school I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and it was after seeing Monty's work during RVB that I started getting some sort of idea of what I wanted to do with my life. And would you look at me now, I'm a senior that's about to graduate in a few months.

So yeah, that's all I've got for now. I just wanted to share how Monty indirectly shaped my life. And who knows, maybe one day you'll see my name among the other great RT animators.

Rest in peace Monty.
