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.

Loving Vincent is composed of 62,450 hand-painted frames. When in motion, they bring static artwork to life.
These are some of the characters in the film—it’s hard to believe they weren’t Van Gogh paintings all along.
The process is nothing short of incredible!
