Big Screen Effects: Loving Vincent with Making Of + Behind the Scenes
Loving Vincent, written and directed by filmmakers by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, is the world’s first fully painted feature film. I saw it over the weekend and it is a gorgeous film which takes place the year after Vincent Van Gogh died and explores what happened to him in his last days. Loving Vincent is up for Best Motion Picture – Animated and also a likely contender for an Oscar nomination, announced later this month.

Loving Vincent – Making Of
“The film brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional oil-painters who travelled from all across Europe to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings, is his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death.”
