8 years, 860 paintings, 1026 drawings, 800 letters, 20 people telling the story of one man. This outstanding project is is an investigation delving into the life and controversial death of Vincent Van Gogh. And that would not be surprising if the story would not be told by his paintings and by the characters that inhabit them. This 80 minutes of crime story will unfolds through interviews with the characters closest to Vincent and through dramatic reconstructions of the events leading up to his death. Film “Loving Vincent” will consist of nearly 56 thousand frames, each created by gradually applying layers of paint. So far, the painted animation technique has only been appearing in short films – this production will be the first case of using in a full length film.
Project is taking place in Gańsk, Poland and will be directed by the painter and film director Dorota Kobiela, who is also the author of the idea for the film. The plates will be painted by over 30 carefully selected painters, mostly art graduates.
