The making of Dot - the worlds smallest animation, as shown by the team at Aardman animations. Their Celloscope had to have depth of field, so they built their own version. and the set moves underneath the camera. Dot herself was printed by a 3D printer.

    Honey, it stops in the middle of the most exciting part! Whyyyyy?
    What is amazing here is that they made a movie from a tiny tiny doll with that Nokia and it looks like a regular animated movie shot by a regular cam. These kind of camapigns should be named "The making of..." so people will understand why they spent so much resources on it.

    Ok, weird. I take it all back. I watched the film and it goes right to the end. 5:35 seconds?
