Back in 2012, my team at Wieden + Kennedy created Nokia Gulp, shot solely on a Nokia N8 handset. The plot as based on a Jonah-style adventure of a fisherman getting caught in a belly of a giant fish. It was the successor to Nokia Dot, the smallest animation ever, which W+K also made with Sumo Science and Aardman, again using a Nokia N8 handset.
Here is a look behind the scenes how the world’s largest animation is shot on a Nokia phone handset. We needed an army of locals to help us prepare the beach everyday for the shoot.
The advert was release across Europe initially and then globally. It has since become a favourite on Vimeo and still enjoys good ratings years after making it.
