Sumo Science (these people) are an animation house and they’ve landed a sweet gig from Nokia that’s allowed them to film the world’s smallest stop-motion animation.
The team from Sumo made the film “at Aardman”. I suppose that could be a bit like saying a movie was filmed at Pinewood Studios; a way to attach some significance to it. I suspect, as this stop-motion is an ad, it’s being used as a way to attach a popular name to the project too.
Yeah. This is an advert for the Nokia N8. There is a catch though. Dot was filmed on the phone itself. Wait to the end and you’ll see what I mean.
What did you think?
Not bad, I thought. I was more impressed at the wave of the fabric coming in from the left than by Dot. I appreciate just how hard it would have been to animate Dot too. Not sure whether they switched her bodies around to make the animation or moved her – I’ll admit there wasn’t so much as a flicker in her position.
Also; was that a fake bee or a dead bee?
