"Gulp" - "The world's largest stop-motion animation set... shot on a Nokia N8."


Shot with a Nokia N8.

"'Gulp' is a short film created by Sumo Science at Aardman, depicting a fisherman going about his daily catch. Shot on location at Pendine Beach in South Wales, every frame of this stop-motion animation was shot using a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics. The film has broken a world record for the 'largest stop-motion animation set', with the largest scene stretching over 11,000 sq. ft."

"Here's a film taking you behind the scenes on 'Gulp', Aardman's world record breaking short film.
It reveals what went in to making such a complex film outside and away from the controlled
environment of a studio, and how it was shot using a Nokia N8.

"Professor Fletcher's invention of the CellScope, which is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, was the inspiration for a teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman. It stars a 9mm girl called Dot as she struggles through a microscopic world. All the minuscule detail was shot using CellScope technology and a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics."
