Nokia has teamed up with Aardman Animations of Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit-fame for an animated video entirely recorded on its forthcoming N8 smartphone.

The ad aims to set a record for featuring the smallest ever stop-motion character in the shape of its star Dot, who is confronted with a world that’s collapsing around her tiny ears.
She escapes the imminent peril and finds metaphorical peace of mind by knitting a blanket for comfort, apparently reinforcing Nokia’s new mantra that its devices are “not about technology” but about “what you do with it”.
Aardman director Ed Patterson says: “The final film has come out better than we could have hoped for.
“The Nokia N8 stood up to the challenge and produced some outstanding images.”
Due to go on sale on monthly contract deals in October, the N8 is home to an industry leading 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash and HD video recording.
The handset also comes loaded with film editing software for cutting your mini movies together and offers Dolby surround sound.
