Adam Flaherty writes over on Make about Gulp – the world’s largest stop-motion animation. That image above represents an 11,000 square-foot set. The boat you see is large enough that it took eight people to carry and place it. And that’s a real person in the boat, not a clay figure.
The whole set was assembled on a beach in South Wales, and the actual ocean waves play a role. Oh – and the whole thing was shot with Nokia smartphone cameras. It’s a project from Sumo Science.
Once you’ve watched the stop-motion, watch this making-of video. It’s kind of mind-blowing.
