"Never let anyone tell you that something is impossible."
Monty Oum, Words to live by

"I mean who doesn't like being told they're awesome?"
Monty Oum on the only proper reaction to his work.

Monty Oum is, among other things, a self-taught 3D animator, whose education was entirely observational. Responsible for some of the most awesome Web Animation around, most of which relies on Rule of Cool.

He gained early fame for Haloid and Dead Fantasy, two of his most famous works and the two that really put him on the map. He was hired by Rooster Teeth to work on never-before-done (at the time) animation for Red vs. Blue, for which he worked tirelessly to make Tex even more awesome than previously thought possible. After finishing up season 10 of RVB, he launched a new web-series under the name of RWBY, something he said he's always been wanting to do since he got into animation. As the director and lead writer of RWBY, he took employees and other writers from all sections of Rooster Teeth, including fan favorites from Achievement Hunter, to produce the series. In between his movies, he's been working on an adaptation of Hatsune Miku for M.U.G.E.N and is looking for testers.

He also worked briefly as a combat designer for Midway Games and Namco Bandai (as a combat designer for the former and combat designer/animator for the latter's Afro Samurai game). His long-term goal, aside from making movies for his fans, is to make the most awesome fighting game ever. Some fans have begged for him to make a game based off RWBY, something he somewhat hinted at before a RWBY game was confirmed at RTX 2014.

He has a video list over at GameTrailers. And a deviantART gallery. And a YouTube channel. And a Twitter. And a recently made tumblr.
