Monty Oum TributeHow do you measure a life? I like to believe it is in how you have made other's lives better and touched them in some way. If that is true than Monty Oum is in the category all his own.
I first met Monty back in 2012 and only for a few moments at RTX. I was very fortunate to be able to talk to him a bit more at RTX 2013 & 2014 as I took photos of the RWBY panel backstage. I may have only spoken to him for a few minutes each time but I could tell how passionate he was and learned a little about how is insane work ethic got him to where he was.
Without a doubt my best memory of him will always be this past year at PAX Prime14. After the RT panel I had lunch with all the RT Staff that were at the convention. Being in that relaxed environment and hearing him talk about how he likes game "X" but hates game "Y" because of how the character moves when they are blocking an attack really showed me how deep he really thinks about details. He was someone that I admired greatly and will miss not only for the work he did/could have done but for the way that he could inspire people to go beyond what they thought was the limit and achieve more. Gone too soon but not forgotten.
I made this tribute because this is the only I way I know to honor him and celebrate the life he lived and all those he made an impact on.
This video is made from my work and the work of many others, I was not able to find the names of all the people who's photos and drawings. This is intended as a tribute and will not be profited on in any way.
