Ronnie del Carmen on his move to Netflix

Ronnie grew up in Cavite City and studied at the University Of Santo Tomas before migrating to the USA in 1989. "My story starts in a group of islands, in a region that I've now traveled back to many times over. Each time I wish I could stay and relearn what I missed. Now I feel the pull of figuring out the beginning. The parts that I use to make movies began there," he told Cartoon Brew. "So on this new journey, I go where these stories will thrive. I carried these tales to Netflix, and when they heard my story they asked me to tell it here. So this is where I'm growing and nurturing these stories that have never been told, in an arena they deserve to belong to."
