Found the video below produced by Aardman.
Along with this great clip which is a short 'making of the movie'.
They have already won the award Best Animation at this year’s British Television Advertising Craft Awards and epic awards with this movie.
Most interesting is that they drew inspiration from the application of the cell phone cameras use in the remote diagnosis of disease in third world countries.
Another cool technology is what was used to create dot. I will look at that next time.
