Dillon Gu was an animator at Rooster Teeth Productions who formerly worked on Volume 3 of RWBY.

Before being picked up by Rooster Teeth, Gu was a passionate animator and Computer Science student at the University of Texas with a popular Youtube channel. Gu 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 Overwatch but with Cats - "Katsuwatch" (a long-running project that emerged after Gu's involvement with RWBY).

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