Artsy Fartsy Friday~~~"DOT" Smallest Stop Motion Animation

Hi everyone!

 I know I know I am a bit late with Artsy Fartsy Friday, but my only excuse is that its the end of the year and school activities are crazy!...but so much fun. My son went to his very first school dance. They call it the Fifth Grade Jam and there was a dinner and then a DJ set up in the Lunch room where the kids danced the night away...(well, until 9:30pm that is)... Bitter sweet for me. This is the last year in elementary school.

sniff sniff

OK, I'm fine. Now lets get to what you are here for.......Artsy Fartsy Friday

It seems a few years ago Nokia came up with a camera that has a microscope attachment....Now why would a camera need a microscope? Well, for instance  doctors in third world countries can use it to take pictures of blood cells and send it off to a lab in another country for analysis... Is that great or what?

Ok, I have to be honest....I have a small Nokia camera and well... don't like it. I don't know if it's me (probably is) or I bought a reject camera......but if they came out with something that will stop people from dying...I'm all in.

So to celebrate this awesome invention They decided to make a short film...a stop motion movie...THE SMALLEST stop motion movie EVER.

                            I am HOOKED!

So not only did I post the movie but the second video shows how they did it. Yes, I am a complete nerd. I am the person that loves the "How they did it" portion of every DVD that has some sort of special effects.
