A recently released trailer for the film “Loving Vincent”, about the life and works of Vincent Van Gogh, reflects a unique and mesmerizing process.Loving Vincent

What looks like computer animation is actually the work of almost 100 artists, who have created oil paintings presented in the film at the rate of 12 paintings per second to achieve amazing results.

The ambitious feature-length film details the story of Van Gogh’s life leading up to the tumultuous time surrounding his death some 125 years ago.

It includes over 100 of his paintings, and is based on more than 400 letters written by the Dutch artist.

Based at their headquarters in Gdansk, Poland, the film is produced by Oscar-winning studios BreakThru Films and Trademark Films.

Here is a one minute peak at the work in progress.
