Gulp, the world’s largest stop-motion animation, was shot using a crane-mounted array of three Nokia N8 smartphones on location at Pendine Beach in South Wales by Sumo Science at Aardman. Capturing the record breaking 11,000 square foot set was a piece of cake for the N8’s 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics. Definitely check out the making of featurette below. The scale is truly impressive. [via HuffPost]

      Probably as a safety. Just incase one breaks they have two more running. Think of the time wasted if you had to debug the camera just to get the shot. There’s a whole crew working on set and if you’re down for even a few minutes, that could translate to hours lost as the schedule gets backed up. They could also be shooting different camera angles or for 3D.
