Dot. The world's smallest stop-motion animation

Technology and creativity can create jaw dropping results leaving viewers both in awe and inspired. As Nokia's saying goes, "It's not technology it's what you do with it."

Professor Fletcher's CellScope invention; a cell phone attached to a microscope, "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."

If this isn't amazing enough, the Dot character was created using a 3D rapid prototyping printer and hand painted, as she was too small to animate mechanically!

Enjoy Dot and The making of Dot.
