The Perils of Dot: The World’s Tiniest Stop-Motion Animation Heroine

Dot is a new 90-second animated short film directed by Sumo Science (a.k.a. Will Studd and Ed Patterson) at Aardman Animations.  Aardman (the creators of Wallace & Gromit) has done many amazing things in animation and earned dozens of awards, but none is likely to be quite as unusual as its new film Dot earning a spot in Guinness Book of Records for the smallest stop-motion animation character in a film.  All the minuscule detail was shot using the new Nokia N8 smartphone, along with the CellScope technology.

The film features little Dot, a tiny 9mm girl who wakes up in a magical, magnified world and discovers that her surroundings are caving in all around her.  She escapes the encroaching wave of destruction as her world unravels via a path made up of tiny, familiar objects, such as pins, pencil shavings, nuts and bolts, coins and a bumblebee, until she finally finds peace by knitting herself a blanket from the very stuff that pursues her.
