"Chu-PiDe" is a 2D animated short film about a Scarlet Ibis named PiDe who has just become the proud father of a bouncing baby girl. Left alone to care for the child while his mate DeLiLah is away from the nest, in his naive mind, PiDe believes that his one day home alone with the baby is going to be a synch.
But little does this first time papa know, parenthood is a lot harder than it's cracked up to be.
The film title "Chu-PiDe" is a play on the Trinbagonian slang word "chupid" meaning silly or stupid and is also in reference to the main character's name.
This was my final student film for my 2-year Diploma in Digital Media Studies-Animation programme at the University of Trinidad and Tobago.
