W+K and Aardman Animations broke a Guinness World Record for 'smallest stop-motion animation character in a film' with 'Dot'.
Shot entirely on the Nokia N8, the film showcases the smartphone's 12 megapixel photography capabilities and also celebrates the CellScope, an invetion created by Professor Daniel Fletcher. The CellScope is a microscopic device attached to a Nokia handset, which the Professor used to produce life-saving technology: with his invention he has helped diagnose fatal diseases in remote areas in third world countires.
The N8 campaign brings these types of amazing, authentic uses of technology to life.

Director: Sumo Science
Client: Nokia
Agency: Wieden & Kennedy
Professor Fletcher's invention of the CellScope, which is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, was the inspiration for a teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman. It stars a 9mm girl called Dot as she struggles through a microscopic world. All the minuscule detail was shot using CellScope technology and a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics.
