For over 30 years, the Philippines remains in the forefront of the animation and game development industry. From childhood favorites to big screen hits, the talents of Filipinos shine in the creative process during production. Combining world-class technology with Filipino creativity, the country has become the go-to for animation and game development outsourcing pool for countries like Canada and the US. Filipino animation and game development studios have contributed to some of the most well-known video games and animation movies globally. Local video game development support studios have provided motion capture animation services in the development of well-known international video games including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Heavy Rain, Mortal Kombat and Injustice: Gods Among Us. Filipino animation studios have also made their mark in the global animation industry as service providers for Walt Disney Studios and Cartoon Network.
