Aardman create huge stop-motion film on beach
Last year Aardman Animations - the folks behind Wallace and Gromit - created 'Dot' the world's smallest stop-motion character, now they've set their sights on a bigger record.
Specifically the record for the world’s largest set for a stop-motion film, which they set when creating Gulp - using a 11,000sq ft stretch of a Welsh beach.
The minute and a half long animation took a week to create on the shore at Pendine Sands in South Wales and was filmed using Nokia N8 smartphones from a cherry picker 36m in the air.
Designers created a life-sized fishing boat for the movie and while the fish, seagulls and sea were created with rakes, the fisherman was a real person… a real patient person.
