World Largest Stop Motion Film on World's Smallest Stop Motion Camera

Despite Nokia’s declining status in the “Era of the Smartphone,” the N8 does have a snazzy 12-megapixel camera connected to Carl Zeiss optics that still give Apple’s iPhone a bit of camera envy. The guys over at Sumo Science got three N8’s mounted on a huge crane to capture a boatload of life-sized stills with the largest covering about 11,000 square feet – arguably one of the world’s largest stop-motion sets.

The result of their efforts is another first – the worlds largest stop motion film made on a consumer level cameraphone. The 90 second “Gulp” was shot over a succession of five days and one night on Pendine Beach in South Wales. The animation crew for the film got a lot of help from animation students who did most of the heavy lifting as the sand artists.

Each frame was painstakingly drawn, staged, photographed, erased and redrawn over countless cycles to create this quirky and lovable masterpiece of modern stop-motion experimentation. Even better than the film, however, is the “Making of” short which gives you a behind the scenes look at how this whole thing was put together. Well worth the six minutes and change. Videos after the jump.
