[BTS Video] World's Largest Stop Animation Shot On A Nokia N8

Who needs a clunky camera these days when you've got a 12 megapixel camera in your pocket. Shot using a Nokia N8, the guys over at Aardman (producers of Wallace & Gromit) broke the world record when they produced this short animation. The final video is only 1 minute and 31 seconds but it took them 5 days on the beach to shoot all the images. I think it goes without saying that the amount of time and effort it takes to produce a video like this is tremendous. Click the full post to see the final video.

The video is really cool, i enjoy it so much. but i wonder... who pays for this work? i meant, those people work for free? just for make a short film to show it in vimeo? or is a personal work of somebody?, i'm an ignorant of these stuff.

Nokia is paying for it. No doubt about that.

Sorry Jens! I'm new to Fstoppers! I'll make a more conscious effort to not let this happen again! 

one might consider this worth reposting ;) :D
