World's Smallest Film made Using a Cameraphone and Microscope

Standing just 9mm tall, the tiny doll’s action-packed adventure is the basis for a new stop-motion film that was made using a camera phone and a microscope.
The film, simply called Dot, was produced by Aardmann, the creators of Wallace and Gromit. It was commissioned as a 'viral' for Nokia and was made using the firm’s Nokia N8 smart phone.
Dot runs for safety as the fabric unstitches behind her
Dot finds herself in a magnified world and hears a noise coming from off screen to her left. Suddenly she sees that the material on which she is standing is becoming unstitched at an alarming rate.Dot runs for her life, climbing flowers and even riding a bumble bee as she scampers to safety.
Each one was hand-painted by artists and attached to an extremely thin wire. The animators used precision engineering to move the backdrop behind the tiny Dot models.
Escape: Dot runs across spinning coins and even jumps on the back of a bumblebee to make her escape
Saved: Dot finally saves herself by taking out two small needles and knitting her way out if trouble, before turning it into a blanket and going to sleep
Dot is to enter the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s smallest film.
The entire film was shot on a Nokia N8 camera phone using a Cell Scope attachment
