World's 'largest' stop-motion animation?

I recently came across a short stop-motion animation movie named 'Gulp'. It was filmed using, of all things, a Nokia N8 smartphone - actually three of them, I understand. (The phone's camera is sufficiently capable that other movies have also been shot using it.) There's also an interesting 'making of' featurette, showing how an entire beach at Pendine in Wales was used as the animation platform!

Here's the movie:

And here's how they made it:

I find that irresistibly nifty!

That was interesting :-) LOTS of time for a very short skit, and they were lucky the weather didn't do them in...
