Watch the trailer for the world’s first fully painted movie

A new animated feature chronicling the life and career of Vincent Van Gogh seeks to emulate its subject’s style by being comprised solely of oil paintings on canvas, making it the world’s first fully painted production.

Produced by Break-Thru Films, who have just released the fist official trailer for the film, Loving Vincent features over 120 of Vincent Van Gogh’s greatest works. The plot itself is drawn from some 800 letters written by the artist himself, with director Dorota Kobiela enlisting the services of over 100 trained painters to bring the story to life in the post-Impressionist style.
