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.

For the second year running, I have been part of the 24Photography artist’s group, an annual photography exhibition documents New Year’s Day. As usual, the exhibition opened on 24th February. This year, there were around 500 people in attendance, with representation from various London newspapers.
As one of the photographers involved, we have embarked on an ambitious project that will span a generation, creating a pictorial social documentary to record what New Year’s Day represents – not only as a one off event – but also as an on-going and developing catalogue of what the end of one year and beginning of another comes to represent over time.
For my entry this year, I wanted to prove to myself that my work was not about the technology but what you do with it. So, I chose to shoot all of my work on a Nokia N8 phone. None of the guests could believe that a phone was able to take such clear images.
The exhibition is running for 24 days in Berkeley Square, Mayfair. Nearest tube station is Green Park. Please pop along and take a look.
