Here's Monty

At our PAX panel this last Saturday in Boston, we announced the newest member of the RoosterTeeth staff: Monty Oum. And while the term "newest" applies to Monty, he's actually been with us for about six months now, diligently working on new projects. In fact, if you've seen our recent Waypoint videos, you've already seen him (barely) in action. To see more of his previous work, check out Monty's Youtube channel.

Three years ago, as we were wrapping up the Blood Gulch Chronicles, we saw a link to a video called "Haloid" which featured the highly improbable scenario of Master Chief from Halo fighting Samus Aran from Metroid. We always loved the animation work and the incredibly creative choreography of the fight sequences -- which is pretty much the entire video. After Haloid, Monty went on to produce the crazy-insane Dead Fantasy series which has millions of views all across the internet.

The last few months working with Monty have been an absolute blast. We look forward to showing you his amazing work in the very near future. In the meantime, go say hi.

I have always loved Haloid, and the thought of that genius working with roosterteeth is amazing.

That moment at the RT panel was the sound of thousands of jaws dropping.

Grab Monty for staff? Good choice, sir.

I wouldn't have expected in a million years that Monty Oum, one of the most talented animators out there, would be working with you guys. This union will be like chocolate and peanut butter. I can't wait for the new season any longer!

Yes! Monty Oum is beastly! I've been following dead fantasy religiously since the first one! I wonder if he'll play a part in an animated RVB? Cough Cough...

Also, lesbian master chief that totally gets an erection (somehow) when Samus takes off her suit is so full of win!

Welcome Monty! Just watched Haloid...I think it goes without saying now that you will contribute lots to Rooster Teeth. I look forward to seeing what you can accomplish.

I went back and checked because of your guys' comment about him helping on Waypoint. I'm assuming it was Sarge relaxing on the beach?

Oh man, I've always been a fan of those vids! I thought the choreography and use of everyone's distinct styles was just amazing. Congrats and welcome man, you really really deserve. I know you're going to do some fantastic work and can't wait to see it. :D

This is freaking awesome. Monty was the reason I started pursuing animation more dilligently, and have followed greatly his advancing abilities throughout the Dead Fantasy series. I only hope you guys don't keep him so busy that Dead Fantasy comes to a complete halt. But to lose one great thing for the hope many more great things to come is fine with me.

Awesome acquisition, now I know what level I need to acheive to get into your guys' ranks. I can only hope to fulfill that dream some day.

I'm right there with you on that! I just rewatched it and remembered how every time you think it can't any more crazy, ridiculous and awesome, it gets kicked up to a new level. :D I want to see it finish! :D

How in god's name did so much badass come from RT in one week. This news almost caused a spit take.
I wonder how this will affect his position at that game company or whatever he worked at. And more importanlty, how it will slow down the development of Road 3 part 2, which had better be in development.
