The world's first oil painted feature film!
Loving Vincent is a beautiful animation that explores the life and controversial death of Vincent Van Gogh, told by his paintings and by the characters that inhabit them. The intrigue unfolds through interviews with the characters closest to Vincent and through dramatic reconstructions of the events leading up to his death.
Painted with over 65,000 frames on over 1,000 canvases, the film was shot with actors, and literally painted over frame by frame in the artist's style. It took 4 years to develop the technique, and 2 years to complete the film with a team of over 100 painters.
