If Van Gogh made a film, what would it look like? Maybe a bit like “Loving Vincent,” an animated film based on Van Gogh’s life and his letters.
This unique film is unbelievable in a way you’d probably never see coming.
Painstaking though the process will be, each of the 56,800 frames of the film will be hand-painted with canvas in the artist’s distinctive style, thus making each visual of the film look like a living Van Gogh painting.
That’s right. We had trouble believing it too.
Over 100 painters have contributed to this ambitious project by Oscar-winning studios BreakThru Films and Trademark Films, and you can watch the first trailer here.
