Miniatures seem to be everywhere at the moment from Slinkachu's street art to posters advertising Glade air freshener. Here are some great examples of miniatures being used in short stop motion animation.
The first is 'Tumblingerstraße' a short stop motion film about a street artist creating a piece on a busy street. Set in the legal Graffiti area Tumblingerstraße in Munich, Germany.
The second is 'Dot' from Aardman. Dot was filmed using a Nokia N8 mobile phone attached to a CellScope device - a microscope normally used for taking pictures of skin and blood cells.
