You’ll get a sneak peek at some stunts, some explosions, and even some of our very own RT cast in revealing suits (you're welcome). We also announced that the full movie trailer will be premiering at SXSW, on March 16, 2015. Get pumped! You can see a count-down for that on the Lazer Team Movie webpage.

Monty OumOn February 1st, 2015, we lost our friend Monty Oum.
I'll keep this brief, because it's difficult to find the words right now.
I first met Monty at PAX East 2010. I was sitting in the Rooster Teeth panel, watching an unreleased episode of RvB, when all of a sudden, a warthog smashed through a wall. Everyone in the audience freaked out, and it took me a second to think, "wait a minute... you can't do that in Halo!" That is when Burnie introduced the audience and everyone watching at home to Mr. Monty Oum. Safe to say, he changed Red vs. Blue, and Rooster Teeth, forever.
Getting to truly know Monty will remain one of the biggest honors of my life. He was the kind of guy who was quiet at first, but once you got him started on something, it was hard to get him to shut up. I remember sitting with him by his desk at our old studio, where he wanted to tell me all about RWBY. We were there for over 3 hours, and there was still so much he had to tell me.
A lot of people at Rooster Teeth got to know Monty during long, late-night talks. As busy as he was, he was never too busy for his friends or his family.
His work and his passion lives on in all of us, in his wife Sheena, his family, and in all of you. We hope you will join us in continuing to create and inspire, just as Monty would do. Let's make him proud.
You'll never leave us Monty. You're in our hearts forever. We love you.
Just a reminder.Everyone has different opinions based off their experiences in life and their beliefs. Don't ever let anyone tell you not to feel a certain way about something you're passionate about, and share the same courtesy with others; feel the way you want to feel, and let them do the same.
Also remember: You are loved. You are wonderful for being the person you are.
