This is the film of Dot, the world’s smallest stop motion animation character at only 9mm high. It tells the story of Dot woken by the fraying edge of the cloth she is sleeping on, causing her to run through a scene of pin heads crystals and a bee. It’s really charming and clever. It’s utilises lots of different fabric textures and props, and has a theme of nature throughout. It was created as a promotion for the Nokia N8 smart phone, which the animation was photographed on. One of my favourite features of the film, is the title sequence which is a close up of the word Dot written on a typewriter. You can see the texture and quality of the paper it is printed on and this helps set that handmade feel of the animation.
This is the making of dot, also very interesting to watch.
