MAKATI, PHILIPPINES: It was a magical and exciting day that we are given a chance to meet two of the creative lead for the movie "Inside Out" by Disney-Pixar studios. It was an energetic press conference in Makati Shangri-La where people from different press company and media delegations have had the chance to ask director Pete Docter and co-director Ronnie del Carmen about the film and how it came about.

When asked how to make it to the animation industry and how would he described his experience del Carmen answered "Our industry is friendly" and both have are grinning and laughed. There was a healthy exchange of questions and answers from Pete, Ronnie, and the crowd. Everyone is hyped and excited for the witty answers and memoirs shared by both creatives. 


One of the foundation for having a great story is something that happened to you or someone that you know that gives them the feeling of longing nostalgia. There have been questions asked about some sad and tearful parts of the film but we won't be discussing it here so that we won't spoil readers on the details. Riley who is the main character of the film is based on Pete's daughter. The overall characters of the emotions (Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear) are conceptualized by incorporating the drafts and sketches with the voice actors, skillfully revised and perfected into the form that you'll see in "Inside Out."

Aside from co-directing “Inside Out,” Ronnie del Carmen has also been a member of the story team on a number of the Pixar’s feature films, including the Academy Award-winning features“Finding Nemo,” “Ratatouille” and “Up” (for which he served as story supervisor).

Pete Docter, meanwhile, has been nominated for six Academy Awards, winning Best Animated Feature for “Up.” His other Oscar nominations include Best Original Screenplay for “Up” and “WALL•E.”

Do something, finish it, get feedback and believe that you'll make it in the long run! This was the advice of Ronnie del Carmen to all artists and creatives who dreams to make it in the world of animation. 

The creative geniuses behind Disney-Pixar's latest acclaimed blockbuster “Inside Out” – director Pete Docter and co-director Ronnie del Carmen – will be in Southeast Asia from August 2-10 as part of a three-city tour just before the movie opens in these markets. The tour which starts from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will head to Jakarta, Indonesia and end in Manila, Philippines. Both filmmakers are scheduled to meet with numerous Disney-Pixar fans and the local creative communities at various on-ground events.
