Those of you working in or following the web animation industry will probably have heard the tragic news regarding Monty Oum's passing last week due to an allergic reaction at age 33. Oum was an amazing animator, screenwriter and voice actor, notably working with Rooster Teeth on animations such as Red vs. Blue and more recently RWBY for which he was the creator and lead animator. Oum's animations have been of great inspiration to me in recent years, especially RWBY, for which I am a big fan and have been following since the first teasers back in 2012. RWBY was my reference material for cinematic web animations, and set a benchmark for quality and elegance that I strove for in my work. It saddens me deeply that someone who could bring so much beauty and joy to the world has been taken from it so suddenly, and my heart goes out to his family, friends, and the countless people around the world who look up to him. Below is a tribute video by his colleagues and friends at Rooster Teeth. To Monty Oum, thank you so much for brightening my days, bringing me inspiration, and giving life to such a wonderful animated world. On behalf of countless people around the world, we'll miss you deeply.
There's no Jabun Audio news update this week, and might not be for a little while due to things currently happening my personal life. I hope to be posting updates as soon as I can though. Next week's update (if there is one) will likely be on Thursday. Until next time, take care, World.
