Dot – The World’s Smallest Stop-Motion Animation Character

From YouTube: Professor Fletcher’s invention of the CellScope, which is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, 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.

    Oh, it’s not stop-motion. Well then, would you mind explaining how an inanimate object is moving on its own without anyone touching it. I swear, the intelligence of some people scares me sometimes.

    Oh, and the video was awesome.

    Instead of a cheap criticism, let’s admire talent, patience, and time spent to make such wonderful video. Awsome! Love it! Ada.
