The First Ever Fully Painted Film

maxresdefault

Loving Vincent is a fully animated film about the life of Vincent van Gogh.  Through a crowdfunding campaign the, the Polish Film Institute trained professional oil painters to paint every frame of the film.

Each of the film’s 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Van Gogh. Created by 115 painters. Sounds impressive and it is except in reality the film was shot with real actors and then each frame was then painted over. Sort of a paint by numbers this. Still, a huge achievement in film and the finished product looks stunning.
