I have always been a Disney fan and it makes me proud to know that a Pinoy animator is behind some of the artistic works in Disney animation. On August 21, Joe Mateo received the “Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation” Emmy award at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards for his work as a storyboard artist for Disney’s Prep and Landing. He first started out as a clean-up artist but his passion and dedication for his work got him his promotions and successes. This world-class Filipino talent truly proves that once they set their mind to it, Filipinos can make it big in their chosen fields.
