Every Frame a Painting--LITERALLY

I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed the other day when I saw a bunch of my friends had shared the same video. And it wasn't a video of puppies, babies, or a recap of the most recent presidential debate! ~crazy~

It was a video about a film called Loving Vincent, for which a trailer was just released. The film is about Vincent Van Gogh's life and it's made up entirely of paintings in his style. (It's called post-impressionism).

After a successful Kickstarter campaign (that launched two years ago), Loving Vincent has employed 100 highly trained artists to make over 56,000 paintings for the film. Every second will be made up of twelve paintings, and the project is still in the works. More master oil painters are being recruited to work on the project for the next six months in Gdansk, Poland, where most of the production is taking place.

When completed, Loving Vincent will be the first fully hand-painted feature film in the world. It will be really cool to see Van Gogh's works come to life through animation.
