World’s First Fully-Painted Feature Film Brings Van Gogh’s Paintings to Life

The animated film Loving Vincent is one that’s nearly six years in the making. If that seems excessive, just wait until you find how it’s made.  The movie, which examines the life of post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh, uses hand-painted canvases to bring its action to life. It takes 12 oil paintings just to create one second of footage! Are you itching to see how it looks? You’re in luck. This ambitious—to say the least—endeavor has recently released its full trailer for us to marvel over.
