      I can't believe Monty is gone, he is one of the reasons I chose to become an animator and I try to replicate the effort and hard work he put into everything he did in the hope of one day getting the chance to work with him.

      I won't get that chance now but I'm still going to keep working hard and honour the man who inspired me so much when I had no direction smiley12.gif

    • RTX Day 2

      After being completely exhausted by a combination of jet lag and being on my feet all of Friday I completed the difficult task of getting out of bed to be at the convention centre. I also didn't make the mistake of being in the wrong place and managed to make it to the Achievement Hunter panel.

      The AH team put on an amazing show and for anybody who missed it you should definitely watch it when the video gets released. They started the panel with a Reservoir Dogs inspired video clip that included Jack's Truffle Shuffle, Frisbees hitting Caleb's face, Michael and Gavin covering themselves in fake blood as well as much more, all in slow motion xD

      After the intro video the Achievement Hunters came out onto the stage and the entire room burst into a standing ovation and a storm of cheering which was amazing to be a part of. They then settled into telling a few stories and a Q&A session which showcased the quick wit if the entire team and was a pleasure to watch live (:

      I had set aside the middle of the day to try and get to some of the signing sessions that were going on but due to the enormous number of people who wanted in on the action everybody had to be at the signings entrance two hours or more before the start of each signing and the lines were capped in seconds. Unfortunately that meant that I did not get into any of the signing lines :(
      I still had a great time despite that and I got to see the majority of the staff at some point even if I didn't get a chance to talk to them or get a picture :)

      The last part of my day was spent lining up for the immersion panel and after turning up for the panel 2 hours early I managed to get a seat in the second row of non VIP seats which was awesome. Being able to see the people I look up to close up was awesome and Gus ran straight past me in his Pac-Man immersion costume which a wonderful sight to behold :D

      Although there is a minuscule chance that they would ever see this I would also like to thank Meg Turney, Patrick Rodriguez, Gray Haddock, Bruce Greene and Adam Kovic who all took the time out of their own days to let me take picture with them which was really awesome of them to do so and helped make my weekend even more memorable! If anybody is interested I have uploaded these pictures to the site.

      Unfortunately my schedule means that I won't be able to be at the third day of the convention because my plane to Las Vegas leaves at 12 on Sunday. I knew the immersion panel would be the last thing I would see at RTX which was why I queued up to get such a good seat :D I have had an amazing time at RTX and would love to come again next year if I can find the funds to make the trip.

      I will leave you with this picture I took of the Tower of Pimps in the AH lounge, I couldn't even fit the whole thing in the picture because it was so damn big!

    • RTX Day 1

      I will start by saying that today was amazing and completely went above and beyond any expectations that I had!

      I started the day in a massive queue! I turning up an hour before opening I thought I was really far back because I was round the other side of the convention centre from the entrance to the exhibition floor. By the time it got to 12 o'clock the queue had gone all the way round and back again and I was actually quite close to the front which was a nice surprise :)

      I missed the RWBY panel because I was in the wrong place and didn't realise until it was too late but it gave me a chance to have a look around the exhibits. All of the booths were great and there was lots of things to look and do, it's hard to go into details because there was just so much!

      After getting something to eat I got the chance to watch the Achievement Hunter GTA5 Heist Live which was fantastic and I can assure you that they are just as fun in real life as they are on YouTube :D I got a really blurry picture of the stage because of my terrible camera but you can sort of see the guys.

      After watching the achievement hunters I went to the Red Vs Blue panel which was really cool, we got to watch episode 9 before it comes out and it was awesome to watch RvB in a room full of fans. The panel was really well run by Miles and being able to see all of the people who work on RvB in real life was great!

      There is much more to talk about but I need to get some sleep before tomorrow, I will also post pictures tomorrow (:
