RWBY Characters + Their Voice Actors’ fitting Tweets Pt. 2 (I want you all to know I tried really hard to find a more out-of-context tweet for Sam Ireland, but she’s literally always like this. god bless)
Monyreak “Monty” Oum ; 22nd June 1981 - 1st February 2015
“If you endeavor to achieve, it will happen given enough resolve. It may not be immediate, and often your greater dreams are something you will not achieve within your own lifetime. The effort you put forth to anything transcends yourself, for there is no futility even in death.”
I believe that the human spirit is indomitable. If you endeavor to achieve, it will happen given enough resolve. It may not be immediate, and often your greater dreams is something you will not achieve within your own lifetime. The effort you put forth to anything transcends yourself, for there is no futility even in death.
- Monty Oum
If you ever feel like the stuff you’re studying or experience you’re getting is a waste of time
just remember that Monty Oum studied film, was going to try becoming an actor, studied to try to become a professional dancer, and worked as a combat designer for 2 games that never saw the light of day, and every single ounce of that experience is visible in all of the work that he made.
The stuff you’re doing is not a waste of time, and you’ll see the fruits of your labor one day. Keep working at it.
Dude you have missed a lot in the last year, but you probably already knew that didn’t you?
We saw another RTX come and go, new seasons of Red vs Blue and RWBY come out (along with new shows coming out in general), fuck we even saw your friends star in a movie and then get it put out IN ACTUAL THEATERS. How crazy is that?! People got engaged, some had kids, others got their first house, Ryan got better shoes. So must has changed and grown at such a fast pace it’s insane.
On this day last year you left our world to go somewhere greater, somewhere that lets you work days on end without sleep. It’s incredible to me that it’s only been a year when it feels like a lifetime ago you were here. When you were in the office in your mocap suit with 6 monitors, all doing something different but meant for the same project. When you were posting strange things on Twitter and talking about stray cats you’d find and anime you watched with Kerry and Miles.
I’ve grown a lot in the last year, even though you’ve never met me. I’ve made some incredible new friends in the community, I got to meet some of your friends at Rooster Teeth during RTX, I even got better at animation and started making more videos. I accomplished a lot in the last year, and true I’m not where I thought I was going to be but no one ever is. I feel like telling you this because you helped me. You’ve helped me become this person that I am because I wanted to change, to become better and stronger. To be more inspired by myself like you were. You were a great and wonderful guy, who could connect with anyone and I want to be like that.
So yeah the last year has been insane, course ask anyone and they might say 2015 was bullshit. Which is true but not the point. You may be gone but you are never forgotten Monty, and I just wanted to let you know that. I miss you a lot, more than I thought I would after a year, but I am done crying and instead plan on looking ahead.
So GG Monty, you really did great, but I think it’s time to move forward.
It had been a full year, I am lost for words. The pain is still here, but I know I am much stronger now than I was last year. I never thought I would be able to even survive 2015. I never got the chance to meet you, but I wish I did. I’ve never really looked up to many people but you were one of them. I’ve healed and moved forward just like you said. I promise to keep going no matter what. I know at the end of everything you’ll be there waiting.
