Aardman produce the world's largest stop motion film

Its lovely for us ad people when we get to work with brilliant studios and directors to produce something really artistic and beautiful. This is what has happened to the creatives who work on Nokia over at Weiden and Kennedy.'Gulp' is a short film created by Sumo Science at Aardman, depicting a fisherman going about his daily catch. It was shot on location at Pendine Beach in South Wales and every frame of this stop-motion animation was shot using a Nokia N8. The film has broken a world record for the 'largest stop-motion animation set', with the largest scene stretching over 11,000 square feet.

It must be nice for the team. A little birdy told me that Nokia are cutting their budgets because their handset sales are dropping. Weidens have certainly been laying people off of late. Anyways enough chit chat, watch and enjoy.
