Video #2 documentation filmed during the “Inside Out” Press Conference in Manila, Philippines with director Pete Docter and co-director Ronnie del Carmen.
Ronnie talks about his Filipino colleagues at Pixar and their advocacy projects, then Pete and Ronnie discusses their successful working relationship starting from the film “Up,” then all the way to “Inside Out.”
Unplanned handheld shots with my GoPro, and I guess the footage turned out fine nevertheless — thanks to the awesome responses from these two smart and creative guys from Pixar.

Las Vegas — The Shark Reef Aquarium Hammerheads can now be seen by Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino visitors.
This spring, two new curious creatures are lurking beneath the surface of Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay. The attraction’s newest residents, a pair of Scalloped Hammerheads, were recently introduced into the 1.3-million-gallon Shipwreck exhibit.
Distinguished by the unusual shape of their heads, Scalloped Hammerheads reside in coastal warm temperate and tropical seas, and can grow up to 14 feet in length, weighing over 300 pounds. Shark Reef Aquarium is one of only three aquariums in the United States that Scalloped Hammerheads call home.
“Scalloped Hammerheads are one of the most distinguishable species of sharks and we are honored to welcome these stunning creatures to our aquarium,” said Adrienne Rowland, director of Shark Reef Aquarium. “Guests will be intrigued when they see these magnificent fish swimming alongside other Shark Reef favorites.”
Each of the Scalloped Hammerheads was retrieved from a sustainable and healthy population in Hawaii. Other populations of Scalloped Hammerheads were listed as an endangered species in 2014.
“We are fortunate to have these animals in our aquarium for our guests who may never have the opportunity to see them in the wild,” said Rowland. “This experience provides guests with a better understanding of the delicate balance of life in our oceans.”
Shark Reef is now home to two species of hammerhead sharks: the Scalloped Hammerhead and the smaller Bonnethead Sharks.
