Shot entirely on the new Nokia N8, the film 'Dot' is a collaboration between Aardman and Sumo Science directors Will Studd and Ed Patterson. It has officially set a Guinness World Record for the “smallest stop-motion animation character ever used in a film”. The making of is a lovely peek behind the scenes showing you exactly how it was created. Brilliant.

These amazing images were created by Dentsu London using an iPad some long-exposure photography and some very cleaver animation programming. If you're a little confused watch the video below.

I recently went to see Sylvain Chomet's latest feature animation 'The Illusionist'. It's an incredibly beautiful looking film with an attention to detail and hand made quality that many CGI animations lack. For me it doesn't quite match his previous film 'Belleville Rendezvous' but it is a must see for anyone with an interest in animation, film or illustration.
www.toastermuseum.com is quite impressive. It's amazing to see how one item has changed so dramatically over the decades.
Every now and then you see some photography that blows you away. The landscapes captured by George Steinmetz from his motorized paraglider are stunning. More info and photos can be seen here
With advances in CAD technology and 3D displays I think it's only a matter time before we start to see this kind of technology being included in many CAD packages. It looks like a nice way to be able to properly visualise your designs in the real world. Link
