Imagine this. A 9-millimeter character 1/5 the size of your pinky being filmed in an animation studio in Bristol, UK. Pretty amazing, right? But wait. There’s more to the story than just its cool factor.

In 2010, Nokia teamed up with Professor Fletcher who built CellScope, a microscopic attachment to the Nokia NS 12-megapixel smart phone. The idea behind combining these two technologies is to capture images of blood samples in far-flung places that cannot easily be reached by laboratory technicians. They had a noble mission and wanted to celebrate the possibilities of this new technology. They decided to pose a challenge to a well-known animation studio in England.

The goal: To produce the world’s smallest film. The challengers: Aardman film and television animation studios in Bristol, UK.
The result: Tiny Dot and her magical world unfolding before your eyes through this charming, teeny-tiny film called “Dot.”  Watch and enjoy!

Ever wondered how this small wonder of a film was made? Check out this article.
