Fichado!: Victor Navone- English version

Since "Monsters, inc." he's been working hard to prove that he is one of the best animators at Pixar. Not only his spectacular demo endorses him, but also the confidence that John Lasseter placed in him to co-direct the "Cars" tv-episodes together. We've been very lucky that he accepted to be part of our "Fichado!" section.
