24 Mar – Sarawak-born Alvin Wee is elated to bring honour to Malaysia, after winning the Cinema Audio Society Awards (CAS) for his work in the Disney animated series, "Encanto".
The Hollywood-based Alvin, who became the first Malaysian to receive the award, stated that the victory is a result of the team's collaboration.
"It's a really tight race and the people that we were up against are the best the industry has to offer so at no point was I taking that for granted," he said. "We knew the one thing we had going for us was the team work we had between the entire team which I believe rarely comes by often."
He also regarded his achievement as a win for Malaysia, stating that it is a truly viable career path and not an unachievable dream.
"I want every kid, especially those who are starting out in creative industries and may have very little access to resources and technology, to know that there is a path towards a future and they should all keep going," he said.
