Gulp is a 2011 British animated short film by Nokia and Aardman Animations. Wieden + Kennedy, an agency from Portland, is responsible for the campaign. It is considered a spiritual successor to another Aardman short, Dot. Gulp was filmed "on the world’s largest stop-motion set". The film is under 2 minutes long, and is followed by a behind-the-scenes featurette.[1] The co-directors were Will Studd and Sumo Science.[2]

Production[edit]

The film was shot on a Nokia N8, which was suspended over a beach. Sand sculptures were used in the production. Nokia Conversation explains "Breaking the Guinness world record, the largest scene in the film stretches over 11,000 square feet".[3]

Jay Clarke was the storyboard Artist for "Gulp"

Plot[edit]

ShortOfTheWeek describes the plot as "a Jonah-style adventure of a fisherman getting caught in a belly of a giant fish".[1]
