Today, I realized I’ve been living one of my one of my childhood dreams.

I actually came to the conclusion early that though I’m an artist, I’m not meant to be an animator BUT even then, I’ve been able to find a role within ToonBro Animation Studio which has helped me achieve a dream I used to only fancy… To help make an animation.

We had given a preview of the Centennial animation project earlier today and I allowed my heart to swell at the sight of my name in the credits. What made it more special is the people I’ve been working with. The profs and friends I’ve made through this endeavor are too numerous to count. The things I’ve learned and still learning from the time I spend in the studio will be one of my foundations in my future works… I just know it.

There is still Act 2 and 3 to tackle but I hope that even when we show the final product this November… it won’t be the end. I had actually thought back in High School that I’d like to make a Pixar-quality like institution in the Philippines one day. Though the studio is just beginning its long journey, I feel like maybe Toonbro is the starting point of that dream in some way.

Though my interests also extend to film nowadays, animation will forever hold a place in my heart. Through animation, I first found my love for arts. Through animation, I empathized and learned about the world. It also helped me form some of my most basic principles both personally and in my work. It’s even dearer now that I’ve been able to experience the different happy and difficult moments of a production.

NEVER ignore the effect of something as simple as a cartoon/anime/art/inspiration can be in your life and NEVER stop thinking and striving towards a dream.

“Steve Jobs was an extraordinary visionary, our very dear friend and the guiding light of the Pixar family. He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined. Steve took a chance on us and believed in our crazy dream of making computer animated films; the one thing he always said was to simply ‘make it great.’ He is why Pixar turned out the way we did and his strength, integrity and love of life has made us all better people. He will forever be a part of Pixar’s DNA. Our hearts go out to his wife Laurene and their children during this incredibly difficult time.”-John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer & Ed Catmull, President, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios

Call me biased but I think this is one of Steve Jobs BEST decisions. Pixar was totally in the pits. No one supported them in their creations. But here comes Steve Jobs… He invested in their troubles. BELIEVED IN THEM. You can see what Pixar is today because of this great man. A true visionary.

The last one is wrong, since I doubt Boo will be in Monsters University, unless they do some sort of extra flash forward, but the rest are true!

To the last one on the right… THAT WAS BOO?!

+ La Luna (2012 shown prior to Brave) images, concept art and a maquette of DisneyPixar’s newest short film

La Luna is the timeless fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances. Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait. A big surprise awaits the little boy as he discovers his family’s most unusual line of work. Should he follow the example of his Papa, or his Grandpa? Will he be able to find his own way in the midst of their conflicting opinions and timeworn traditions?

 Here is a link to a teaser trailer and an article with the director:

It is a simply beautiful piece of animation.

CAN’T WAIT TO SEE IT! Not going to watch unless its on theaters together with Brave <3
