Nokia has been really pushing its marketing campaign for the N8 with tons of videos – both about the device and videos shot with the device. This time, Nokia, with the help of some friends, has filmed “Dot.” It’s a cute little stop motion film about a really miniscule character.
What really gets me is just how much work might have gone into animating the character since she’s so tiny! Additionally, since it is a stop-motion film, the Nokia N8 really must have its work cut out. As you’ll see in the video, the Symbian^3 smartphone is mounted onto a machine and has an added lens to it in order to make this thing work.
Nokia smartphones have always had some pretty impressive cameras that shoot great stills and videos – probably the best on the market until the iPhone 4 came out – and it’s really cool to see it being used so creatively like this. Check out the stop-motion film below, and after that you can see the “making of” video to really give you an appreciation of just how tiny the character is, and how difficult this project was.
