Inside Out Directors Pete Docter and Ronnie Del Carmen Invades Manila

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

We are psyched when Walt Disney Studios PH invited us to the press con of Inside Out last Friday and had a chance to see the brilliant minds which brought us the new Pixar animated film. We had to make a lame excuse at the office and take a leave, so we won't miss the once in a lifetime event. 

Inside Out is earning big at the box office who already earned more than $600 million since it opened in the US last June. It is already an impressive number considering there are a lot more markets, including the Philippines, who haven't shown the film yet.

The media and my fellow bloggers had the chance to ask some questions to Director Pete Docter and our very own Ronnie Del Carmen, who left the Philippines when he was just 30 years old and migrated to the US.

Director Ronnie didn't expect to land a job at Pixar but with his dedication and right kind of attitude; his dream job came true. When he was still here in the country, he usually watched movies at Greenbelt and didn't imagine that the theaters here will now show his own masterpiece. He is very thrilled to share the film they worked for five years. Del Carmen also shared that there are a lot of Filipinos working at Pixars where he calls as "Pixnoys"

Joining the party is Director Pete Docter, who is excited to be here in the Philippines. He stressed that Inside Out is a done with collaborative effort by 270 amazing talented artists who chipped in their own way for this film to come out perfectly in place.

The best part of the Q & A was when they answered the theory about if all Pixar characters live in one universe. They were also asked if they can make a crossover and put all the characters in one film. They said that it was kind of hard to imagine that they all live in the same universe and stressed out that they don't plan to connect every film. However, they won't stop you from imagining that all of these films are connected.

We are also lucky enough to be in the red carpet premiere screening later that night at SM Aura in Taguig. The gala premiere was attended by famous personalities like Team Kramer, Patrick Garcia and his wife Nikka Martinez, LJ Reyes-Alapag and Jackie Foster. Director Pete Docter and Ronnie Del Carmen were also present for the opening remarks.

The film was simply gorgeous throughout and the full review soon will be posted in this blog.

Inside Out opens August 19 in cinemas nationwide and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.
