Loving Vincent – An animated movie that turns the silver screen into a “van-Gogh”

We are only beginning to see the creative and artistic potential technology enables, in the same way Vincent Van Gogh used his paintbrush, that crude piece of technology that consisted in horse hairs and wood,  to create immortal masterpieces in culture, CGI and other technologies ( Like VR, 3D printing and computer modeling) will enable us to move to new and unimagined (yet) frontiers.

It is in this spirit that I share the preview of a movie some of my more artistic friends can’t wait to buy; Loving Vincent.

” Loving Vincent is a 2017 biographical animated drama film about the life of painter Vincent van Gogh, and in particular, the circumstances of his death. It is the first fully painted animated feature film. It is written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman. The development was funded by the Polish Film Institute, and partially through a Kickstarter campaign.

Each of the film’s 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Van Gogh, created by a team of 115 painters. The film premiered at the 2017 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. It was awarded Best Animated Feature Film Award at the 30th European Film Awards in Berlin.”  -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loving_Vincent
