Busy... sooo busy

working hard as humanly possible on RvB Season 9.

failed at building my girlfriend new costume for AX '11. Also while getting several chemical burns while fast experimenting poly resins

went to AX, played as hard as possible to enjoy the 1/3 times a year I get to see my girlfriend. Enjoyed the fuck out of it.

back at our studio now cramming even harder on RvB season 9

check it out a special preview here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ3OZf…

episodes 1-4 are all available on our site as well: roosterteeth.com/home.php

too busy, just way too busy.

It was really great to talk to you during AX day 4 as the Dead Fantasy Rinoa. I'm sorry if I seemed super nervous, haha! Meeting you in person and being able to chat for a bit was like meeting a celebrity in my book :] Thank you for taking the time to show me how you made the Fenrir costume! I was really inspired by it.

Anyways, don't overwork yourself! Health comes first :D

Hey, just saw the RvB season 9 preview and thought the footage looked familiar. Then I saw that your name was in the credits. Awesome work!

You are doing a fine job on RvB Se9 I am sure everyone is happy with what they have seen so far. Keep up the good work, also I am glad you got some time to go out and enjoy yourself.

REMEMBER: All work and no play makes Monty a Dull boy !! XDXDXD

good luck on getting it all done as soon as possible ^_^

Whoa man, sorry to hear about the burns! I've definitely earned some scars at my job, and chemical stuff is the worst! Hope you have a speedy recovery, and get some more time with your lady.

When you've got the time man, take it easy. Those work tempos can grind you down if you're not careful.

You know what they say: "It is not easy being god" and since your animations are godly awesome I think you count. If there's one thing Gurren Lagann taught me it's "Kick logic out and do the impossible" which you do with every video you make. Keep up the good work and never stop believing in the you who believes in yourself.

Season 9 is incredible. I sometimes still can't believe the level of quality you've gotten up to.
o.o I wish they could hire you an assistant or something. I know RoosterTeeth is a relatively small company, but animation is so much work.

Take it slow (if you can), remember to brush your teeth, eat food three times a day, chillax with your girlfriend, take a breather from life, and don't forget to shower!

I saw the preview a couple days ago and that totally makes up for the delay of Dead Fantasy. Twas amazing.

But I really wish you could somehow take more time off so that you could be with your girlfriend (and progress on Dead Fantasy).

Good luck. :]

I'm not trying to say that your animation work isn't a treat to my eyes, but there isn't enough regular machinima in the series now. Seeing the animated action scenes used to be a huge "wow" factor, but now it just saturates most of the episodes.

Dude, the Fem!Fenrir Cloud cosplay was NOT a failure. Are you freaking kidding me?! It was amazing!!!! It moved by remote control for f*ck's sake!!! It looked great, the idea was original and the execution was pretty much flawless. Not to mention your girlfriend looked super hot and kickass in that costume.

That aside, Jesus Christ on a crutch, RvB Season 9 is shaping up to be WICKED AWESOME!!!! I can't stop watching those four episodes over and over again! I'm kind of torn between liking RvB or DF more :XD:

They look amazing Monty, I can really see the difference between them and last year's stuff.

Also Monty, you need to start posting journals on Roosterteeth. You post everywhere but and a lot of people on there love you. Im sorry but you could literally copy paste your stuff from here and it would work...
