"For all the years I have been in this field I have this kind of view that I'm only a worker in the animation industry. Now, because of the Emmy Award, besides being the first Filipino animator to be given the highest honor, my point of view has changed. I have this kind of feeling, oh now I'm really in the mainstream of the film entertainment industry in my career."
