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

“this world was never meant for one as beautiful.” from the song “Vincent”.
Cool! Thanks for the information! I never knew there was a song written for Vincent van Gogh!
“Vincent” is a song by Don McLean written as a tribute to Vincent van Gogh. It is also known by its opening line, “Starry Starry Night”, a reference to Van Gogh’s painting The Starry Night. The song also describes different paintings done by the artist.
Glad to help you discover it…such a beautiful song. 💕
