Filipino artist among the designers of Pixar's 'WALL-E'

About a month or two ago, I posted here the trailer of the computer-animated movie, Wall – E by Pixar. Never did I imagine that a Pinoy artist is among the designers of this movie. Indeed, there’s no stopping the Filipino talents from conquering the world of entertainment.

Nelson Bohol, a production artist is the only Filipino member of the design team who contributed his creativity in finishing the animation’s over-all appearance.

WALL-E is the latest among Bohol’s assignments which included animated films "Ratatouille" (2007), "Cars" (2006), "The Incredibles" (2004) and "Finding Nemo" (2003).

Bohol is also behind the lay -out of movies "Titan A.E." (2000) and "Anastasia" (1997).

According to absCBNnews:

Bohol said he owes his “Hollywood success” to his mother, who was among the fatalities of the ill-fated M/V Doña Paz in 1987. He also credits his success to the hardships he faced while struggling to finish his architecture degree at Manuel L. Quezon University.

“Ang hamon dito i-recreate ang daigdig na naging basurahan na, so this part was inspired by the San Francisco Bay Area na nawalan ng tubig,” said Bohol as he showed one of their movie illustrations.
“[Naranasan ko] ‘yung wala kang pambili ng papel, walang baon. Pero tinaguyod ako ng nanay ko kahit hirap… [All] throughout I did not give up, I kept on dreaming because dreams can come true. I know she is happy for me,” he said.
