Gulp, stop-motion made on Nokia N8

“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. 

// Stop motion animation

I have been playing around with stop motion animations before (you can see this old post) but it has always just been with my crappy build in webcam. Then yesterday I played around with my Nikon DSLR camera and after some time I managed to make my MacBook remote control the camera. However as some of you might know stop motion takes a LOT of time and finesse. I didn’t really have any of those two things so that’s why my little test animation is kind of sketchy. Also, because it took so long time the light in the room kind of tricked me. That’s why you will see the animation go more and more yellow… When I get some time again I will try and make a decent one.

I just spend most of last week in the great “A Kind Of Eden” studio, engineering on the new album with “Stereo Love”. The recordings turned out really great and I’m really looking forward to listening to the final results! Between takes I used my time to create a little stop motion film. I think it turned out great even though I didn’t have a proper camera to take all the pictures with. I’ll make sure to remember that the next time. Enjoy.
