    • ShotgunWoman asked matt a question

      Will the unrated version of Lazer Team be released at some point, or at least the scenes that were edited to have the movie remain PG-13? The unrated scene in Gavin's mind was phenomenal.

      Answered: Feb 3, 2016

      Probably but I don't know when yet. Thanks!

    • Lazer Team coming to theaters this January!

      1 year ago


      One year ago we started principal photography on our first feature length film, Lazer Team. It’s been a labor of love for all of us at Rooster Teeth, and we’ve been inspired and driven by the unbelievable support of our community to make it the best damn movie we possibly could.

      Today we’re happy to let you know that Lazer Team will be available in theaters January 27, 2016! Physical and digital copies of Lazer Team will be distributed to our amazing Indiegogo backers at the same time.

      There’s a lot more great news to come, including an exciting partnership on a huge digital platform we’ll be announcing very soon. So stay tuned.

      The entire Rooster Teeth community has done so much to make this movie happen, and in the months to come we are going to be calling on you once again. We need you to get the word out about how, when and where to see the movie. Your response to our record-breaking Indiegogo campaign exceeded our expectations, and we’ve tried our hardest to make sure the movie exceeds yours. We’re excited for you to be able to share it with your friends and family as something we can all be proud of having made possible together.

    • what a week!

      1 year ago


      It's been a great week already and RTX hasn't even started yet. We've been having a ton of fun doing ADR (dialog replacement) and visual effects for Lazer Team, we got a sweet new 3D printer, finalized a lot of awesome videos for this weekend, and my wife just put the last touches on some super cute RWBY cosplay outfits for our kids. (They are going to own the show floor! Deal with it.) Also, importantly, my friend @gstrompolos publicly reconfirmed our company's commitment to valuing creators and working hard to make sense of the complicated world of IP rights.

      But best of all Marcus got us a Penny Press for RTX y'all. 4 designs - gotta catch 'em all.

      See you this weekend!

    • Monty Oum has passed away

      2 years ago


      Our friend, inspiration and co-worker Monty Oum passed away yesterday afternoon at 4:34 PM surrounded by people who loved him very much. Ten days ago Monty suffered a severe allergic reaction during a simple medical procedure that left him in a coma. Although he fought bravely, his body was not able to recover. During his time in the hospital he was well cared for and never in pain at any time.

      Monty is survived by his wife Sheena, his father Mony, his brothers Woody, Sey, Chivy and Neat, and his sisters Thea and Theary, as well as a countless number of fans and friends. We were so proud to be a part of his life and we will miss him greatly.

      Your generosity during the hours after the public statement on Friday will help his family deal with the costs of his care and his passing. You made an incredible difference during a difficult time and we cannot thank you enough.

      As for honoring Monty, we will do that in our own way. In lieu of flowers or gifts, we ask that you simply do something creative. Use your imagination to make the world a better place in any way that you can. If you know Monty like we do, then you know he would certainly be doing that if he were able to.

      Monty was 33 years old.

      We love you, Monty.

      Hi Matt.

      I'm so sorry that I'm late in saying this. I was too consumed by sorrow when the news hit Monday morning.

      I've had nothing but respect for Monty; in his abilities, his determination, and in his creativity. He worked hard, believing in something he created. As a student of animation,I see him as an inspiration to study this field; an inspiration to create ground breaking worlds, much like he did with RWBY, though probably not of the same caliber of greatness RWBY had achieved with the fans. To hear that he passed away.... was soul shattering.

      All I could think of during that dark Monday was figuring out how best to honor him. And this was the best I could do. Still... I only wish I could have done more. In spite of this, what I have learned from Monty was that the dreams we wish to achieve die if no determination, resolve, and passion is behind it. And I refuse to give up in what I wish to achieve, just as he did.

      Thank you, Monty... you have lit the inspirational torches of the creative minds of this tight community, and you are immortalized in our minds.May you rest in paradise.

      Monty's work is amazing, and I am very grateful that my son found him and the entire Rooster Teeth Community. You have inspired him to choose a path in animation, his biggest dream, which came in tie only with meeting all of you, especially Monty, one day.. I created an account today to express my appreciation for Monty and your crew and the inspiration you all bring to so many around the world. Your community, though almost entirely virtual, is a strong-knit one, and Monty's loss will be felt deeply.

      To an amazing artist, Monty ~ you inspired many in your too few years. Trust you will not be forgotten.

      Hey Matt, do you think the new RT location can be titled as the Monty office?

      I feel like its the least to do considering he won't be able to see it, that and Monty's name is kinda synonymous for dedication to creativity which I feel is what Roosterteeth has always been.

      With regards, Lukin109

      Monty brought us some of the most Kick Ass pieces of animation ever to exist on the Inter-webs. Let is honor his memory and celebrate his life and accomplishments. May god bless his family and friends and help them through this difficult time of morning and I hope that they can find solace in the fact that he left such an impression on thousands of people and lived his life to the fullest. And may Rooster Teeth carry on his legacy and continue making kick ass animations.

      I've said my RIPs so now instead I say:

      Where do I even begin, with such a pillar of the RT community. He was such an inspiration to not me, but to his colleagues, family, and hundreds of fans. He was an amazing animator, a powerhouse mind behind RWBY and RVB. I think of how such a silly thing could have killed such an amazing man, and it also a shame he died in his youth. I am not a believer in heaven, but I truly hope Monty goes to heaven. I truly hope his works carry on his legacy, and I know the community will. I think every February 1st, people living close to the RT office should leave roses in front of it, as a reminder of this grim loss. Everyone settles for mediocracy... Not Monty. Monty was that rare quality man.

      This sounds odd... But... I had a dream... Where Monty flying through the cosmos, happy as ever... He might actually be doing that.

      I leave this here, with a heavy heart and pouring tears,
      Rest in Peace, Monty Oum. We love you.
      Never forget.

      You know, I never really personally knew that much about Monty, all I knew is that he was a great animator that worked extensively on RWBY. Now I'm a gigantic follower of Roosterteeth and Achievement Hunter alike, but I hadn't really realized how big until Monty's passing. When I had read the news it literally made me shake and feel genuinely sad, but regardless I send my dearest condolences to all his family and friends.

      We love you Monty

      CEO Hullum, Monty Oum was a legendary person, and will be remembered as such by those who witnessed his work. He was the director for Rooster Teeth's first anime series, RWBY after all. My question for you sir is this: Does Rooster Teeth plan to continue the production of its and Monty Oum's shared Legacy, RWBY? As a fan, I would love nothing more than to see such a gem continue, all the way to the epic finish Monty Oum had envisioned for the RWBY series. Whatever the case, the man known as Monty Oum was a great animator, and I wish his family and coworkers the best in light of this tragedy.

      Monty was a HUGE inspiration for me! i second the motion to make some sort of an annual day for which we remember such an influence in our lives. ever since i first saw "Haloid" wayyyyyy back, ive always been watching for what he was gonna do next! not to mention how his heart shined through on his works! after watching almost everything he's done, its clear to see he had a heart of gold! My wishes to his family and friends, and I know I'm not the only one who can say that he will forever be immortalized in my heart!!!

      Dear Monty Oum, we have never met in person, yet I feel such a strong connection to you. Even now, I lament at your passing. The gift you gave everyone, your vision, your voice. The light you crafted in the colors of a rainbow. Will forever be a catalyst of change in my own life. You, who nurtured each character as if planting a flower. You, who weaved stories of myth and mystery. The world has suffered greatly, because of your passing, we may never know your true vision. We may have never met, but I knew you. Your creation touched me and gave me my own vision. For that, I thank you. I will miss you. I shudder at just how grey this would will be without you.

      There are those that shine brightly, their lives but brief echoes in time. They leave us all too soon and we wonder why they have left us so quickly.

      When I first saw Monty Oum, I was watching a video called Haloid. An awesome fusion of Metroid and Halo, I thought. The animation was well done and I loved the action. The next video I saw was dead fantasy 1 & 2 with all of my favorite characters from both games in it. There was also RWBY, an awesome series but none of that matters now. A spark has gone out of the universe and all that I can say is that I will miss this guy even though I did not know him personally.

      Monty Oum. Another hero I'll never meet. Another creator that i'll never truly know. He is mourned by friend, family, and fan. I know that his memory will endure in the hearts and minds of all that knew him and knew of him. May he truly live forever and that we all draw inspiration from the life he led and his legacy, and may we all smile in honor of his memory.

      I want to let people know how hard that hits me and that I feel with his family and the community ... but there seem to be no words to do that justice. smiley3.gif

      I just found this out from Facebook and...i just can't believe it. I don't even know what to say right now. Monty...we'll miss you. I'll miss you. My prayers go to you and the RT gang.

      I'm not really good with words when it comes to difficult times like these. I didn't want to let it go by without comment though. My kids and I have spent a lot of hours being entertained by Monty's work.

      Thank you, Monty. You will be missed.

      As a tribute to Monty, you guys should try to aim to close up his Dead Fantasy series. Last I recall he really wanted to complete it but was, as you know well enough, too busy to do it.

      I feel that'd be a good way to pay respect towards him (other than what tribute you might have planned for him via RWBY, which should be great as well.)

      I was thinking of trying to get as much of the community as possible to follow you and take up the image of Monty Oum to honour him.
      But alas, I don't even have any friends on the site, nor am I part of any community.
      I looked up to Monty a lot; he was the reason I first got interested in many things such as animation and 3D modeling.
      I am sure that others in the community feel as I do and want to do something to remember.

      They say one who which all trades is not very loved, but i want to believed this is not so true. I believe some fans even cry as i did. Because this man was a good reason to keep living, he make me/us smile everyday with his creations and some say that´s not a lot,but (at least for me ) he always make me feel happy when i was in the worst mood, and that´s all we needed he was our friend even if he didn´t know it and we will miss him, always.

      Only a year older than I, it's a shame to hear of such a loss. His work was truly amazing, from Haloid to RWBY and his contributions to the gaming community will be sadly missed. My sympathies and best wishes to his friends and family.
      Thank you for some great times and spectacular sights, Monty.

      It is such a terrible thing to see the life of such a brilliant mind cut so short. Monty was an artist of the likes that only occurs once every few generations. He was truly a revolutionary in modern animation and will be greatly missed. Today, the world lost one of its best, and God is welcoming home one of his greatest creations.

      why must the good die young? Monty was one of my favorite people on the roosterteeth team. I wish him and his family well. I'm not one to cry but I did shed a tear when I heard the news. He created RWBY which is my series and i hate to see someone with such a creative mind die. Wherever he is now I hope it's better than here. Rest in peace Monty, You will be missed.

        Sorry I meant to say my favorite series, not my series. I didn't create the series, Monty did. Sorry I had to make such a big deal over simple wording, I'm kind of a grammar nazi.

      Monty was God's gift to animation. He was a remarkable individual, and an inspiration to thousands of dedicated fans. I never met Monty in person, but he was an inspiration to me and is the reason I've chosen the career path I am on. He is and will always be my hero. You shone brightly, and broken wings would never keep you down. You have been lifted up. And you are there. You will be deeply missed.

      Death has never bothered me, I've never been emotional about family or people I've known passing away. I've always thought I was just messed up for some reason.

      I never watched RWBY and haven't followed RED VS BLUE in a long time but, I realize how talented Monty was, I respect him more than most just for his sheer, raw talent.

      I can honestly say, his passing has affected me in a way I've never really felt before. My sincerest condolences go out to his friends, family, and those who knew him.

      I've never really been a believer in heaven or hell but, I do hope, for his sake, that there is something after this life because NOBODY with as much raw talent and potential should cease to exist so soon; in this life, nor the next.

      I didn't know much about Monty's work until I met him at Supanova in Brisbane a year or two ago. He was such a genuine and funny guy that I decided to give RWBY a go. What a legendary man.

      I'm so saddened by this news. I'd only found Monty's work in 2013 in the middle of the release of RWBY, but I've loved everything I saw from him and was looking forward to so much more. RIP

      This is just.... Horrible, so much talent, and so giving and considerate to his fans. I have been watching Rooster Teeth forever, like first episode of RvB. I joined the community two months ago, and haven't had a lot of time to take a active roll in it. i won't say why because
      i don't want people to say I'm just trying to get the name out there. I will say that it is very hard to do something that you love, and monty along with all of Rooster Teeth where the first to show me that it is possible to make the impossible possible. So thank you monty so much. We will see you in the next one kid....
      R.I.P Monty Oum
