Gulp: The World's Largest Stop Motion Animation [Video]

Friends, not only are you looking at the world’s largest stop motion animated short film produced, but it was also shot entirely on three Nokia N8 cell phones. The film was truly massive in scale, with the largest scene sprawling over 11,000 square feet — netting it the world record for largest animation set.

Moreover, the sand-animated short was brought to life by Aardman animation, the same minds that brought you Wallace and Grommit and Shaun the Sheep. Expectations should be high with a production crew of such pedigree, and they don’t disappoint.

As much fun as the short film is, the making of might be even better. Read on below for a look at how this monumental animation was made.
