Dillon Gu is a former Rooster Teeth animator who worked on Volume 3 of RWBY.

Before Rooster Teeth

Dillon was a passionate animator and Computer Science student at the University of Texas with a popular YouTube channel. He is also responsible for popular animations such as "Gods Don't Bleed - EPIC FIGHT Minecraft Animation", "Ionia: The Blood Moon" (League of Legends Cinematic), and "Katsuwatch" which is Overwatch, but with cats. (This is a long-running project that emerged after he worked on RWBY).

Having been heavily influenced by the late Monty Oum, Dillon decided to create a new piece labeled Project MONTY in tribute to Monty's unique style of animation and fight choreography, highlighting similar transforming weapons and intensive combat. His work was noticed by RWBY animator Shane Newville, and he eventually was picked up by the Rooster Teeth Animation Department to work on RWBY Volume 3.
