World's smallest stop-motion animation. Answered


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.

More cool stuff - the film's heroine, is printed.  Too small to be positioned by hand for each frame, multiple versions of Dot were created in different poses with a 3D printer (so, presumably, files exist for you to print out your own authentic film starlet?)

See more projects and how the 'Dot' film was made at Nokia or Facebook.

Wow, that's amazing at how small that is, it must have taken forever to be able to move everything!

You'd have to use tweezers, but even then it would be quite hard.
