It literally amazes me what smartphones can do these days in regards to artistic ventures such as photography and film making. It only seems like yesterday when cell phones users were cool if their mobile could take sh*tty .1M pictures! Now, you’ve got people like the folks at Sumo Science at Aardman who make absolutely amazing short films using devices like the Nokia N8 with a Zeiss lens attachment. The team at Sumo shot the video you’ll see below on a beach using a crane and up to 11, 000 square feet of sand space to make a short 2 minute stop motion video that’ll blow your gourd.
The video is great, and very unique, but the impressive feat is that fact that this was done on a freaking phone! It’s just unbelievable. I can’t believe we haven’t figured out Hyper Space travel yet, but we can make devices the size of your hand that can produce professional looking movies like Gulp below. Take a look at this mini, or should I say large video below. You’ve never dreamed of being this creative…
‘Gulp’ is a short film created by Sumo Science at Aardman, depicting a fisherman going about his daily catch. Shot on location at Pendine Beach in South Wales, every frame of this stop-motion animation was shot using a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics. The film has broken a world record for the ‘largest stop-motion animation set’, with the largest scene stretching over 11,000 square feet.
