Originally from the sandy shores of Nassau, Bahamas, Robert Walkine is 3D artist on a mission. His mission has always been to preserve the traditional and cultural folk tales of his country, by providing a new visual medium by which to tell them. His medium of choice is animation.
“You must fish, cut bait, or get out of the boat!”
To put food on the table a father and son duo must venture out to sea to catch some fish.
Cut Bait is an animated short that examines an estranged father son relationship with the comedic aspect of a Bahamian folklore.
Audience members young and old will appreciate the morals and lessons to be learnt from this visually-stylized interpretation of an old Bahamian proverb about taking up space in a boat.
