World's Largest Stop Motion Animation Film

August 3, 2011


This is a Nokia viral ad for their N8 phone featuring the world's largest stop-motion animation, which was made on a beach using a crane (that's a real boat in the picture). It's a follow-up to their world's smallest stop-motion animation and NOT a follow up to the job interview I had on Monday, which probably isn't coming (I called the dude a pecker and threatened to choke him out with a computer cord when he asked for references).

'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 square feet.

Damn, that thing has a 12-megapixel camera? What's my iPhone have on it? "A shit-ton of pics of your balls?" Haha, you know it!

Hit the jump for the video, as well as a 'making-of' if you're curious.


Thanks to Fed Power, who really needs to flex those muscles and get us the f*** out of debt.
