“Pixnoy” film director Ronnie del Carmen and his “Inside Out” team received a 2016 Golden Globe nomination for Best Animated Film.
Del Carmen is co-director to Pete Docter in the 3D computer-animated comedy-drama adventure film about the emotions of an 11-year old girl, produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures.
Speaking about the film he co-directed Del Carmen says, “Making this movie is one for the ages.
As human beings, we find it hard to talk about our emotions because it’s scary! Pete’s concept makes those conversations easier from now on, because we have these friendly characters to help us through them.”
Del Carmen, a Cavite native, has worked with the best animators in America including other Filipinos known as Pinoys at Pixar (Pixnoy).
The former advertising executive first worked with Docter in the film “Up,” and has also worked on “Finding Nemo.”
The Fine Arts graduate has been honored as an Outstanding Alumnus of the University of Sto. Tomas.
After receiving news of the film’s nomination, the Pixnoy told the press, “I am calling my mother! I grew up halfway across the globe in the Philippines watching movies and movie awards shows. Now, I’m part of a movie that is nominated for a Golden Globe! Crazy! I am so lucky to be working at Pixar and ever grateful to John Lasseter for making sure that our studio supports ideas like ‘Inside Out.’ Mabuhay!”
“Inside Out” will compete at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards with “Anomalisa,” “The Good Dinosaur,” “The Peanuts Movie” and “Shaun the Sheep Movie.”
