Filipino pride is definitely present at the recently concluded Golden Globe Awards held in California, USA as the team behind the Best Animation Motion Picture film “Coco” includes Pinoy skills and talent.
Gini Cruz Santos, a native from Pasay City and a graduate of University of Sto. Tomas in Manila, is the supervising animator of “Coco.”
Aside from the award-winning animated film, Santos is also one of the creative people behind the movies “Brave” and “Finding Nemo.”
According to Santos, it took their team six years to create “Coco” as the animated film’s main topic of the Mexican culture requires extensive research.
“The Mexican culture, they kind of share our dynamic a little bit as family. For me, I was excited because I felt like all our research in the dynamic of our acting and just kind of a how the Mexican family relates to each other feels Filipino,” Santos shared during a press briefing in Manila.
