Dot, Star of the Worlds Smallest Stop-Motion video was captured using a Nokia N8 smartphone and and a Cellscope (a cellphone camera with a 50x magnification microscope).
Animators at the UK studio Aardman used a 3D printer to make 50 different versions of Dot, because she is too small to manipulate or bend like they would other stop-motion animation characters. Watch the movie after the jump.
Directors Ed Patterson and Will Studd attached a CellScope to a Nokia N8 12-megapixel camera to capture Dot’s adventures. The CellScope device is the creation of Daniel Fletcher, a bioengineer at the University of California-Berkeley.
