Gaijin Sashimi

Erik Vos Short film - 2019 - 6 min.

Animation about a Dutch boy serving his apprenticeship with a master in Japan to bring his sashimi slicing skills to perfection.

In Japan, a typically Dutch boy works on his sashimi slicing skills. The sensei teaching him slices his fish like an artist, with an extremely steady hand, whereas his foreign pupil can hardly hold the brush. The master lets his apprentice slice fish until the latter, surprisingly enough, finds the solution in his own culture. Short animation combines numerous different, at times picturesque 2D and 3D techniques to arrive at a tasty picture.
