    • Monty Oum Forever

      "Reminder that we should cherish those close to us and not wait til they're gone to appreciate them"
      - Monty Oum

      On February 1st, 2015, we lost a great animator and inspiration, Monty Oum.

      I wanted to write this yesterday, but it was too difficult to think straight.

      Monty affected the lives of many, even many whom probably didn't even know who he was. He brought to animation new ideas and abilities. The most I loved about the animations he created were their fluidity during fighting sequence that I have never really seen in any animation series or even game. I learned after his death that he worked on a game called Afro Samurai and was the lead on fighting movements. He pioneered the ability to slice enemy entities in any direction.

      It wasn't just his animations that inspired many young animators, but just his personality and drive. I, myself, am not an animator nor ever say I am. But, it wasn't his animation that inspired me, it was his drive to succeed and to take pride in whatever he made. I wouldn't say he was a perfectionist, I don't like that word much feels condescending, but instead he was very prideful and it showed in his work and life. Because of Monty, I found new pride in my passion of writing and have gone back to writing a book I pushed off about a year ago.

      Whether you are of any walk of life or of any passion, Monty Oum affected us all and because of this he won't be forgotten. His body may be gone, but his art and his passion is still here, in our work and in our memories. He is loved now, and loved forever.

      I will leave you with a quote:

      -If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he's dead, then maybe he was a great man.
      -James Dean
