(#5) from cartoons to 3D

I’ve always liked animated tv shows (Carebears, Superboinks, Ranma ½, Sailormoon, Samurai x, Naruto, etc) and movies (Spirited away, Howl’s moving castle, Monsters inc, Ice age, etc).

In the Philippines, the locally produced Urduja, that was created using the traditional (hand-drawn) animation process, was released in theaters on June 18, 2008.

Then there was Dayo: Sa Mundo ng Elementalia on Christmas Day of the same year (25 Dec 2008), which is the first all-digital full-length animated feature film, advertised as "tradigital" - a mix of traditional animation with 3D animation.

And now here comes the first full length 3D animated film - RPG: METANOIA, which will be shown on Christmas Day this year (25 Dec 2010). The five-year production of this historic movie is a testament of the Filipino artists’ vision, dedication, perseverance and commitment to excellence.

Both Dayo & RPG were given a grade of "A" by the Cinema Evaluation Board, which allowed the producers a 100% amusement tax rebate. It’s a good thing that there’s this government policy which supports this highly creative and innovative segment of the entertainment industry.
