One of the most scientifically advanced and tiniest cartoon ever made, The Boy with the Atom was created using stop-motion technique and an 80's IBM scanning tunnelling microscope. The reason why I selected it is not only because Guinness has certified the movie as the world's “Smallest Stop-Motion Film”, but nothing on this scale has ever been manipulated to make a narrative film.
The stars of this "little" work are a group of carbon atoms positioned on a copper surface. A total of 242 frames and many years of technological advances concentrated in 60 seconds.
The experiment is astonishing, I know. But more interesting is how the IBM researchers move all those atoms to make the tiniest movie ever. Is basically awesome. Enjoy ;)
