World’s First Feature-Length Painted Film about Van Gogh Has Been Debuted (VIDEO)

Seven years after it first went into production, a full trailerof the upcoming fully painted animated film of Vincent Van Gogh’s life has been debuted.

Loving Vincent, which was produced by painter Dorota Kobiela and filmmaker Hugh Welchman. The film, which is the world’s first feature-length painted animation, will be finally seeing theatrical release on September 22, The Daily Mail reports.

Every scene in the film is made from an oil painting on canvas.

According to Sylwia Piekarska, PR manager at Breakthru Fims, the idea was originated by the director, Dorota Kobiela.

”She was re-reading through Vincent’s letters, and found one of his final letters which said ‘we can only speak through our paintings’ – that’s what inspired her, and she wanted to bring Vincent’s paintings together to tell his story.

The whole film was painted by hand, and painting for seven to 10 hours a day is a very demanding job”, she said.
