...And shot on a cell phone, no less. Not just any cell phone, but Nokia's N8 with the Zeiss lens and 12 megapixel chip. Entitled "Gulp," the short used an actual beach as a canvas and was a collaboration between the UK's Aardman Animations and Sand Sculpture Ice in conjunction with Nokia. The largest shot—presumably the titular gulp—zooms back to encompass 11,000 square feet of beach.
