The Gruffalo’s Child
UK

Gulp

Aardman Animations and Sumo Science follow up last year’s wonderful diminutive Dot (which set the world record for smallest animated character) by notching it up a few orders of magnitude. Shot on an expansive seaside location, they set a new record for the world’s largest stop motion set, in this story of a fisherman who gets swallowed by a whale.

Keenan at Sea

Animation, David Cowles/Jeremy Galante, 2010, 2 min
